2018 Vieux Château Palon  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 91

Lusciously textured, plummy fruits, espresso, licorice and smoky nuances are already discernable. Polished, round, sweet, ripe, dark red fruits taste and feel great on the palate. The finish, with its espresso and cocoa accented cherries hits the spot. This is a delicious value play for those willing to skip the big wines and just want pleasure in the glass. 91 Points

2017 Vieux Château Palon  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 88

A notable depth of color, you'll find mineral driven, black raspberries, thyme, soft textures and sweet, salty red fruits in the finish. Medium bodied, juicy and chalky, a few years in the cellar will provide the necessary evolution. 88 Points
