Critique Review

Owned by the Meffre family, this estate has produced a ripe wine packed with black-currant Cabernet Sauvignon flavors and still-firm tannins. It offers weight and richness but never too much. Drink this wine from 2024.

ROGER VOSS for Wine Enthusiast.

 

Vibrant and fruity red with currant and raspberry character. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a vivid inish. Lots of energy here.

James Suckling

 

This is textbook St.-Julien, with an authoritative streak of cassis and plum preserve flavors carried by a racy graphite and iron spine, backed by roasted apple wood and tobacco notes on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2027.
