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. »

Wine Enthusiast - 88 points
« 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. »
