98 points Wine Spectator: "Subtle and racy, with lemon rind, vanilla cream and dried pineapple. Very spicy and intense. Full-bodied, with great length and flavor. Electrified yet refined, with medium sweetness and a wonderful finish. I love the class of this, and the length. Has afterburners. Best after 2010. (12/31/06)"
97 points Bettane & Desseauve's Guide to the Wines of France: "Then nose is already developing with confidence; the wine has a precision and purity that would have been unthinkable just ten years ago. This is a complete wine with slightly more body than in previous vintage, all of the elements in perfect balance. Drink: 2011 up to 2030. (2011)"
