WS 95
Wine Spectator, January 2017
(92-95) This is lovely, with creamy-textured plum, cassis and boysenberry fruit that unfurls slowly and steadily, picking up bright anise and floral notes, as well as a tug of earth at the end. Rock-solid. –JM

(17.5/20) Really complex array of aromas with meat and veg evident. Intense and deep-flavoured. Lovely richness underneath. Yet with a massive charge of tannins for the future.

(88-90) The 2016 La Grave a Pomerol is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has a crisp nose of black fruit, briary, that leitmotif of warm gravel percolating through, perhaps more aloof than the 2015 when I tasted it here last year. The palate is medium-bodied with blackcurrant and bilberry on the entry. I would have just liked to see a little more detail on the palate, more roundness on the entry, although it is fresh and has decent length. Fine, although I prefer the 2015.
