JS 95 WA 94 WE 94 WS 93 IWC 91 Pts - According to Suckling - Impressive nose with leather, dark polished fruit and flowers. Wonderful mouthfeel with soft silky tannins and beautiful texture. Really well put together. Powerful and rich with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Very ripe. Winery notes, Intense, beautifully bright deep purple colour. The bouquet is very fresh with deep, ripe aromas. The palate is smooth and voluptuous, developing a beautiful smooth, full-bodied texture with black fruits aromas, moka, dark chocolate, hint of menthol. This wine reveals a precise, meticulous, very balanced structure, with refined tannins and a superb finish. Its generous, elegant, distinguished style promises an excellent great future.
According to Robert Parker - Lead pencil shavings, soy and barbecue smoke as well as red and black currants characterize this brilliant effort, which has an expansive, full-bodied mouthfeel yet a sublime elegance and lightness of being. Dense ruby/purple, gorgeous purity and a long, long finish of close to 50 seconds characterize another brilliant effort from this classified growth in Pessac-Leognan. It should drink nicely for 25-30 years yet is surprisingly accessible even today.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Continuing its impressive series of wines, this red from Malartic-Lagravière has all the structure and density of the vintage, packed with plum and black currant fruits. The acidity is almost sweet in its richness, blending easily into the dark texture. Age for many years. Cellar Selection!
According to Wine Spectator - Shows a hefty dose of toast, but remains polished and well-embedded in a core of crushed plum, steeped blackberry and cherry compote flavors. The long finish picks up briary energy, with anise and violet notes checking in. Best from 2016 through 2028.
45% Cab, 45% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc, 5% Petit Verdot.
