James Suckling 91 Points Pretty aromas of freshly picked plums and Indian spices follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Lovely tension to this. Drink in 2018.
Château la Révérence (which means “curtsey”) is a micro-estate located by Chateau Chauvin and Chateau Grand Corbin near the medieval village of Saint Emilion. The château was originally called Chateau Clos Jean Voisin, but was changed to La Reverence when winemaker Mr. Emeric Petit acquired the estate in 2003. Mr. Petit is a young, dynamic up-and-coming winemaker specialized in producing outstanding garage/boutique wines at value prices on Bordeaux’s right bank. He learned how to make wine under the guidance of famous oenologists Mr. Jean-Claude Bé- rrouet (Petrus) and Ms. Catherine Cohen. Today, he is a rising star and his wines receive top scores from both Parker and Wine Spectator. Mr. Petit also owns Château Tournefeuille in Lalande de Pomerol and Château L’Ecuyer in Pomerol.
