WE 95
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.
WS 93
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.

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.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, March 2018
The 2014 Les Astéries has a more classically styled nose, quite reserved but there is plenty of fruit that should unfold over the next few years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious and lithe... The 2014 Les Astéries has a more classically styled nose, quite reserved but there is plenty of fruit that should unfold over the next few years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious and lithe, the oak nicely integrated with a smooth and appealing finish. Excellent. This may well be as good as Jonathan Maltus's Le Dôme. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017
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
