Wine Enthusiast - 90 points
« While this is certainly a structured wine, it also has generous, full and ripe fruit flavors of black plum and berry, plus firm tannins and acidity. Saint Ahon, in the southern part of the Haut-Médoc, is showing great promise with this wine.​​​​​ »

« While this is currently a tough proposition, the inherent fruitiness of this structured wine augurs well for its future. With berry fruits under the dark tannins and some slight bitterness from wood aging, it needs time. Drink from 2017. »
Vintage 2015
VertdeVin - Spring 2018 - Score: 15 (89-90/100)
« The nose is slightly powerful. It reveals notes of berries, fresh cherry and slight notes of fresh strawberry associated with hints of grey pepper, flowers and an imperceptible touch of liquorice. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a nice freshness, fat, minerality, roundness as well as mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh raspberry ans slight notes of ripes / fresh red currant associated with a subtle hint of violet, racy minerality ans an imperceptible toasted touch and liquorice. Tannins are well-built. »

« This is a structured, dense wine produced in the southern Haut-Médoc, close to Bordeaux. It is packed with dry tannins that give an austere character. The weight hints at the black-currant fruit to come. Drink from 2022. »
