This obscured some of the fruit underneath, yet it is still nicely defined and classier than the Bonnes-Mares. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, sweet and generous but maintaining fine tension with good substance and length on the finish. This might be the best offering from the domaine in 2016. -Neal Martin

Complex, soil-inflected scents of black raspberry, smoke, stony minerality, licorice and fresh blood. Plusher and sweeter at this stage than the Bonnes-Mares, and equally earthy in a positive way. Gains in thickness toward the back end, but the building tannins are a touch dusty and herbal. A more saline style of wine than the Bonnes-Mares.

The succulent, round and impressively concentrated flavors are imposingly scaled with excellent power on the beautifully complex and built-to-age finish where once again the VA shows up in the form of a mild tanginess. I repeat my comment on the Bonnes Mares that this has all it needs for the long-haul but how well the balance will hold in over time is impossible to say with confidence.
