Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2015
(WE93-95 points) This is a structured, mineral wine that is dense and complex. Black plum skins and dark berry flavors push through the serious tannins. The wine still has to balance, but its potential is considerable.

Beams of salinity and acidity give the wine much of its energy. Violets, lavender, smoke, tar, licorice and plums are all racy and exquisite in the glass. The 2014 is opulent yet retains gorgeous nuance for such a big wine. The blend is 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2015
(WS90–93 points) A subtle vanilla thread leads the way, followed by caressing cherry and plum fruit. A floral edge marries well with the gentle toast on the finish, showing good persistence. — J.M.

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2017
This is a beauty with great ripeness and balance, but not a jot too sweet or heavy. The tannins are finely grained and give the finish a silky quality. Needs two or three years to open.

The 2014 Les Asteries has retained those complex aromatics that I remarked upon during primeur. Now in bottle, it offers red and black fruit: kirsch, cranberry jus, incense and potpourri aromas that are nicely defined... The 2014 Les Asteries has retained those complex aromatics that I remarked upon during primeur. Now in bottle, it offers red and black fruit: kirsch, cranberry jus, incense and potpourri aromas that are nicely defined, perhaps a little more opulent compared directly against the 2014 Le Carré. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and strawberry interlaced with orange rind and a light tang of Seville orange marmalade, finishing with a marine-influenced, quite lightly finish. - Neal Martin
