''This is packed with blueberries and wrapped in smooth, round tannins. Very approachable with plenty of body.'' 92 Points, James Suckling

Aromas of intensely clean and pure blueberry, blackberry and dark cherry carry through onto the palate, and the finish is remarkably fresh, clean, crisp and bright.

''What makes the 2016 vintage so special is the quality across the Bordeaux hierarchy. They all offer bottlings with rich, ripe fruit and a tannic structure that promises longevity.'' Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Indeed, 2016 is a top vintage. I can confirm what I thought when I tasted hundreds of 2016s from barrel in Spring 2017: the 2016 is one of the best vintages since 2010. To conclude, I want to buy a number of wines in 2016. And I recommend you do the same if you love excellent Bordeaux. The wonderful balance, intensity and clarity of the wines are so, so Bordeaux today.'' James Suckling

''The 2016s are absolutely remarkable wines. The word that comes to mind, unfortunately so often overused, is balance. In technical terms, the 2016s boast off the charts tannins that in many cases exceed those of wines from massive vintages such as 2010. And yet, the best 2016s are absolutely harmonious, with the tannins barely perceptible at all. The 2016s also have tremendous energy and bright, acid-driven profiles, with many wines playing more in the red-fruit area of the flavor spectrum.'' Antonio Galloni,
