Wine Enthusiast 94 Points
From a 19th-century winery that’s a prominent landmark on the Pauillac riverfront, this wine is dense with tannins and vivid with black fruits. The estate’s three parcels have given a rich wine, concentrated and dense while also having layers of dark fruits. Drink this promising wine from 2026.
Dried currants, stewed blackberries, praline, dried herbs and pencil lead on the nose. Raw cocoa, too. It’s full-bodied with firm, ultra fine tannins. Structured with excellent intensity and focus. Very polished. Try from 2025.
Very alluring, with a dark and winey core of cassis, steeped plum and blackberry preserve waiting to unfold fully while fine-grained alder, black tea, warm cast iron and licorice root notes form a prodigious frame. Long, dark, smoldering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2025 through 2038.
