Decanter, October 2018

Rich and silky in texture, there's some lovely cinnamon and black pepper spice here, with lovely grip from the very fine tannins and good drive too. It's extremely precise, with every piece in its place, a considered and...

Pristine, attractive fruit with perfume and freshness. Dark-berry and plum notes, as well as cassis and brambleberries, define the character of both nose and palate. The tannins are saturated in ripe dark berries and...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2019

Richly spicy with swathes of black fruit and dark tannins, this powerful wine also shows great elegance. Juicy fruits shine through the structure to give a wine with a good future. Drink this rich wine from 2024.

Wine Spectator, March 2019

Solid, with engaging cassis, cherry and blueberry fruit flavors, backed by a mouthwatering bramble note and flash of roasted apple wood. Captures the essence of '16 St.-Julien in a more accessible package. Best from 2021...
