Wine Spectator 91/100
John Ramsay, the Malt Master of Glenrothes, has crafted a selection of The Glenrothes which typifies the distillery house character - ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and hints of spice. The Select Reserve is a first, a non-Vintage-specific selection carefully chosen by John and produced to the same high quality stvtandards as The Glenrothes Vintage selections; only here selects and vats from casks from different years. Pale gold in colour, with a bouquet of American oak, vanilla and coconut, with the merest hint of plums. The palate is full and malty, medium sweet, with vanilla and orange zest.
Domaine Raveneau is the northernmost of the most important communes of the Medoc and borders Pauillac on its southernmost border, width only a gully and stream separates it from Ch. Lafite. to the north lies the Bas-Medoc. St Estephe is defined by the depth of its gravel, which is ubiquitous but of varying depths and occasionally very shallow, when clay predominates. This keeps the soil cooler and wetter than its counterparts so that the wines can appear fresh in lighter vintages, but superbly successful in hot, dry years. The best chateaux in the south of the commune have the deepest soil and the thickest graves. Cos d'Estournel has an exceptional terroir with its vineyards being located on a south-facing ridge of gravel with excellent drainage. St Estephe is the least gravelly of main Medoc communes and in the north of the commune the vineyards are heavier and more clay-based leading to a rustic style of wine being produced.
