Vinous.com: 94/100 ! Brilliant red. Expansive red and blue fruit, potpourri and Asian spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a smoky mineral nuance with air. Combines power and finesse with a smooth hand, offering palate-staining raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. Shows impressive intensity and a suave rose pastille quality on the subtly tannic, strikingly persistent finish, which leaves a sappy red fruit liqueur note behind. This bottling's track record for rewarding patience is rock-solid.
Burghound.com: 94/100 ! A perfumed and highly spiced nose blends both upper and lower register aromas of plum, dark berries, cherry and a whiff of Asian-style tea. There is excellent volume and richness to the seductively textured, concentrated and powerful medium-bodied flavors that are quite firmly structured on the highly complex and hugely long finish. This is a classic rendition of Cuvée J and very clearly built-to-age. If you can find it, buy it, though do be prepared to cellar if appropriately. In a word, brilliant ! 94/2024+
