"Ripe, blueberry and blackberry flavors with nice freshness and supple tannins.'' 91 Points, James Suckling. A wine inspired by Haut-Brion!
This is fruit-driven with aromas of red fruit and blackcurrant alongside floral overtones reminiscent of violet. They combine the tannic power of a great vintage with a deliciously velvety texture and rare smooth, powerful, and generous on the palate. Their relative high level of acidity gives them an admirable freshness and tremendous balance, a wine inspired by Haut-Brion.

“Well worth seeking out in terms of value and pleasure” Wine Advocate Magazine
''2016 is a top vintage. I can confirm what I thought when I tasted hundreds of 2016s from barrel in Spring 2017: the 2016 is one of the best vintages since 2010. To conclude, I want to buy a number of wines in 2016. And I recommend you do the same if you love excellent Bordeaux. The wonderful balance, intensity and clarity of the wines are so, so Bordeaux today.'' James Suckling
''What makes the 2016 vintage so special is the quality across the Bordeaux hierarchy. They all offer bottlings with rich, ripe fruit and a tannic structure that promises longevity.'' Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
