Vinous, 97 points: The 2016 Domaine de Chevalier is a thrilling wine. Dense and beautifully layered, the 2016 is also quite a bit richer than it usually is. Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and structure pulse through the wine. The red-toned...
Wine Spectator, 91 points: Aromas of mineral blackberry and licorice lead to a full body with lots of racy tannins and a long flavorful finish. There's plenty of character with a polished refined style yet tannic. Best after 2011. 9830 cases made...
Wine Enthusiast, 95 points: (93–95). Barrel Sample. The wine, a majority of young Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, is structured and firm with solid tannins and layers of black currant. This will be ready to be drink after 2025.
Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: This is a fine, beautifully controlled wine. Its dark black currant fruits and firm dense texture are restrained, stylish and delicious. At the same time, the fruits offer a smooth, juicy aftertaste. Keep for 6–7 years.
jamessuckling.com, 93 points: Fresh caramel and chocolate aromas sit across crushed violets and blueberries. The palate has a very plush and fleshy core of blueberries and blackberries. A seductively fruited wine. Try from 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 points: The 2016 Clémentin de Pape Clement has a medium to deep garnet-purple color with crushed blackberries, cedar chest and allspice on the nose and new leather, unsmoked cigars and cassis in the background. Medium-bodied and...
Vinous, 92 points: The 2014 Le Thil has turned out nicely. Sweet red cherry, flowers, mint and pipe tobacco give the wine its distinctive aromatic signatures, while silky tannins add to an overall impression of grace and creaminess.
jamessuckling.com, 94 points: Just coming around now, the 2006 shows beautiful meat, forest floor, tobacco and berry character. It's medium to full-bodied. Savory finish. Drink now or hold.
Wine Spectator, 95 points: Offers pure driven plum cassis and black cherry notes inlaid with graphite and roasted wood spice. Dense without being overextracted. Very sleek. Rock-solid.-J.M.
TheWineCellarInsider.com, 98 points: Rich, powerful, deep and sensuous, the smoke, spicy red fruits, tar, tobacco and spice box aromatics are already delivering the goods. Concentrated, full bodied, rich, powerful, long and fresh, the tannins are silky and...
