Rich, sumptuous and flamboyant, the 2016 exudes depth in every dimension. Raspberry jam, espresso, mocha and new leather all meld together in a full-bodied wine that is full of character and personality. Soft contours and generous fruit abound in an exotically ripe yet also vibrant Saint-Émilion that is a thrill a minute. In case you are wondering, I loved it. Tasted three times. -- Antonio Galloni

Rich, full-bodied, and powerful on the palate, this is a brilliant wine. The blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc all brought up in new oak. It’s worth noting that this terroir had a poor reputation in the past but has been completely renovated by Jean-Luc Thunevin. Showing brilliantly on the two occasions I was able to taste it, readers should put this estate on the radar.

Big black fruit but no hint of jam, married to a fullish body and plenty of supple tannins, making a bold statement. Add rather soft acidity and this is easy to enjoy now, but the way it opens up in the glass suggests...   Big black fruit but no hint of jam, married to a fullish body and plenty of supple tannins, making a bold statement. Add rather soft acidity and this is easy to enjoy now, but the way it opens up in the glass suggests good aging potential, too. Drink or hold.

This is one for those who like their wine to set the pace for any food matching - there's definitely drama on offer, but with a lovely kick of salinity on the finish that's beautifully seductive.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it features cassis, crushed blackberries and black cherries with hints of cedar, cassis and pencil lead. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm and grainy with a good mid-palate core of black fruit, finishing savory. 5,000 cases produced.- LPB
