94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
Outer quote mark A genuinely brilliant nose that is at once extravagant and highly expressive reflects intensely earthy and spicy aromas that remain completely primary before giving way to opulently rich, round and notably sweet medium full-bodied flavors that deliver flat out incredible length on the mocha, velvet and mouth coating finish. Despite the higher than normal yields, this is really quite concentrated, seamless and exquisitely harmonious. In sum, this is a Clos des Epeneaux that should age for years to come, particularly in magnum format. Note that this isn't quite completely ready but it's getting close, especially if given 30 to 60 minutes of aeration first. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Benjamin Leroux urged me not to depart his cellar so hastily, at least not before trying this unique wine, basically the 1999 Clos des Epeneaux that was bottled with minimum sulfur - a bit of horseplay on Benjamin-s part. It has a wonderful bouquet with undergrowth, Provencal herbs, mint, juniper and sage that swarm upon pouring. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry and instantly builds in the mouth. The acidity is very poised, with hints of kirsch and Moroccan spices furnishing the ebullient, convincing finish. Excellent! (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Outer quote mark More violets on the nose of this lovely wine (see my note on the 2002 tasted alongside it). Rich and vibrant, this wine has lovely life and richness as well as the density that characterises this wine. Likely to have a long life. Definitely the star of a group that included 2004, 2003 and 2002. Do we just need patience for a good vintage? 18.5/20 Points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2014)
