Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2016
(WE95-97 points) Structured, tight and firm this wine is focused around dominant tannins, yet shows the potential of black fruit flavors. Destined for long-term aging.

(WS91-94 points) Very solid core of almost unctuous raspberry and plum fruit bursts forth, giving this an exuberant feel, while solidly grippy licorice and singed vanilla notes fill in on the dense finish. Maybe a touch pumped up in the end, but there’s good freshness here to wait this out.—J.M.

(WA92-94 points) The 2015 Les Asteries is a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc picked on October 2 and 13, then matured in 80% new oak. This has an opulent bouquet with cocoa-tinged black fruit, blueberry and a dab of cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin, perhaps not quite as precise as the 2015 Le Pontet, though there is satisfying substance and backbone on the finish, with the Cabernet Franc expressive and imparting a subtle peppery vein. Give this 3-4 years in bottle and then drink over 12-15 years. - Neal Martin

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, March 2016
(JS92-93 points) Juicy and fruity with blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a bright finish. Sleek texture to this.

Jeff Leve , August 2016
(JL91-93 points) 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc produced a rich, polished, plush, ripe wine with silky tannins, concentration, ripe fruits and minerality. The wine reached 14.8% alcohol with no sensation of heat.
