Medium-bodied with chewy red fruits, the wine is on the oaky side, giving it roundness, but also dryness in the finish. This is probably the last vintage for this popular Haut-Medoc as it was recently purchased by Bernard Magrez and it will probably be annexed into La Tour Carnet. Drink from 2023-2029. 83-85

Opening with espresso, smoke, cocoa and red pit fruits, the wine is medium-bodied, fresh, vibrant and crisp, with an elevated note of savory herbs, espresso, olives and spice on the palate and in the finish. Cigar wrapper and red fruits combine on nose and palate with a good blast of tobacco-infused red fruits and a hint of chocolate in the medium-bodied, fruity, savory finish. Drink from 2022-2031.

Better from the bottle than the barrel, the wine shows off its fresh, bright, juicy, red berry, earth and espresso hints easily. Medium-bodied, fresh, juicy red fruits with a hint of olives and blackberry seal the deal.

Fresh, crisp, crunchy, bright red fruits are easy to find in this classic, medium bodied, lean, earthy wine. Lovers of old-school, classic Bordeaux will like this a lot more than I did. 85-87 Pts

Cranberry and cherry notes compete for space in a medium bodied, lean and classic wine. For those of you who enjoy the style, this is an early drinker.

Lean, sharp, bright and with a strong green streak that accompanies its crisp red berries and tobacco leaf character. The wine is more interesting on the nose than the palate.

There is a strong herbaceous quality to the dark fruits and rustic tannins that some tasters are going to like much more than others. The dusty, crisp, fruit in the finish is the best part of the experience. The wine was produced from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
