|The Wine Advocate Parker: 90/100
Sadly, there are just under 10,000 bottles made of this wine, which comes from a vineyard adjacent to the luxury hotel/restaurant of the same name. This is probably the best vintage I have ever tasted of Cordeillan Bages. It exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color and notes of tobacco smoke intermixed with creme de cassis, licorice, and incense. The wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and ripe, with sweet tannin and a long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.
