AWARDS AND REVIEWS

18,5/20 Jancis Robinson
“Tasted blind. Very dark crimson. Rich array of aromas on the nose. Ambitious with lots of stuff covering a pretty massive charge of tannins. Just slightly inky. Exciting finish. Very persistent. Classic build with lots of ambition. Everyone thought this was Montrose! Very good value. Drink 2025-2045"

Impressive dark-cherry and dark-plum aromas with nicely delivered spices and chocolate to boot. The palate has a very vibrant, very juicy and fresh pure palate with dark cherry flavors that hold bright. Very approachable St.-Estephe. Try from 2020.

The core of dark plum and cherry fruit has good flesh for the vintage, though this is decidedly austere, with iron, singed alder and bay leaf notes holding sway through the finish, ending on the taut and woodsy side. A bit of cellaring will help, but this is unlikely to harmonize fully. Best from 2020 through 2027.
