Blackberry and black-cherry flavors power through this structured wine. There is also elegance and a fine sense of style. Drink from 2025.

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.

(91-93 points) Mineral driven fruits, fresh, spicy plums and smoky cherries culminate in a distinctive stony finish. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2014&wine=Les%20Asteries

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

Lovely weight of fruit with finely edged tannins behind. Great persistence - long, minerally finish. Clear stamp of the limestone terroir.

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

Wine Spectator, January 2017
Singed vanilla and alder notes lead the way in this aromatic version, with a core of lightly steeped plum and cherry fruit, threaded with tobacco hints. Shows good focus on the finish, with a chalky echo. Best from 2019...
