95 points "Opaque purple, with a sweet blue and blackberry perfume intertwined with licorice and graphite, the 2005 La Confession exhibits massive concentration and extraction, but this full-bodied wine pulls back from being over-the-top because of intrinsic freshness and admirable purity. It is a brilliant effort from the young Janouiex, but it needs some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028" Best 2012-2028

89 points "Very floral and fruity, with hints of blackberry and flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins and a good density of fruit. Long and racy. A little reserved, but pretty. Best after 2011. –JS" Best 2012-
