A beautifully floral and fragrant wine that has deep, slate and stony nuances with abundant fresh berries, plums and mulberries. The slate and graphite continue to the finish with a wealth of super fine, plush and concentrated tannins. Try from 2022.

(WA91-93 points) The 2016 La Cabanne is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked from the end of September. François Estager told me that like last year, he did not add any sulphites until after the malolactic fermentation. It has a well-defined bouquet with black cherries, a touch of cassis, a lovely marine influence and crushed violets. It opens beautifully in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp, tensile tannin and very well-judged acidity. This Pomerol displays great energy and poise, fanning out on the second half that demonstrates superb mineralité. This is an unmissable follow-up to the 2015 La Cabanne. Tasted twice with consistent notes. - Neal Martin

The 2016 La Cabanne has a pure, exuberant bouquet of luscious Merlot fruit, red cherries and crushed strawberry laced with truffle and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine line of acidity, and quite fresh toward the finish, leaving behind just a hint of spice on the aftertaste. This is a lighter style of Pomerol but very well crafted and satisfying. -- Neal Martin

The 2016 Château La Cabanne checks in as 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc brought up in 45% new French oak. Coming from the team of Thomas Duclos, it has a spicy, dark-fruited, ripe, sexy style as well as medium to full-bodied richness, good concentration, beautiful elegance and purity, and a great finish. It plays in the seamless, elegant style of the vintage yet has beautiful fruit and should keep for 15+ years.
