I've had bottles of the '05 Pur Sang, '04 Silex, plus samples of a handful of others from various vintages. I drank the Silex with Manton. Pio had the '05 Pur Sang as well.
Kwilk linked my review of the Silex, here is for the Pur Sang:

The attack is full of grape fruit, lemon, milky melon, tart pear, and then evolves to show a rich flinty, stony, and almost sea stone essence. The acidity is perfect each step of the way but the oak aging adds just the right amount of subtlety to keep everything in check and balanced. The finish is exceptionally long with huge amounts of gun flint and slate. An astonishing wine.
And get one while you can, even if not for the tasting. They wont be around for long
and they really are something speical.
