"2016 is an incredible vintage that produced a lot of outstanding and some extraordinary wines throughout Bordeaux. Perhaps the best news for consumers is that 2016 is the most consistently great year since 2009 and 2010, both at the top of the market and in terms of good value wines.”  - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

"2016 is an epic vintageThe bottled 2016s capture every bit of the potential I sensed when I started tasting the wines from barrel, prior to en primeur, in January 2017. I found many 2016s to be even better from bottle than they were during the spring futures campaign. The best 2016s are powerful, richly layered, vibrant and stunningly beautiful, not to mention incredibly delicious and alluring." Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"Let’s cut to the chase: 2016 is unequivocally a great vintage in Bordeaux. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. We are looking at a vintage that can send tingles down the spine and back up again. Over twenty years of tasting Bordeaux from barrel at en primeur, this was my most pleasurable tasting experience alongside the 2009, albeit in a very different style." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

"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 2010You can buy just about anything bottled in Bordeaux in the 2016 vintage from the simplest Bordeaux to the grandest of classified growths or trophy wines from the Right Bank and be assured you’re getting a top-quality wine.” - James Suckling

"2016 is a truly great vintage for Bordeaux, and unquestionably in the same category as 2000, 2005, 2009, 2010, and 2015. While the wines have their own unique style, if pure, classic Bordeaux is your thing, 2016 will most likely check in near the top of this list…every Bordeaux lover out there should have 2016s in their cellars.”  - Jeb Dunnuck
