Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93 DE / 92 JA

Lifted and lithe, lively but direct on the palate, straight and focussed, softly expanding with each sip to give more nuance of red bramble and summer berry fruit, liquorice and toasted spices. Black pepper and wild herbs also mingle on the palate with high acidity giving a push-pull of flavour and texture. Confident and harmonious with a long penetrating finish. Feels classy and elegant, yet still giving power and forward motion. First time on the Place de Bordeaux. From a 2.5-hectare vineyard with an average age of 53 years. Grapes were 85% destemmed and 15% whole bunch fermented, bottled unfiltered. Winemaker Pierre Chapuis. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Medium intensity ruby red, showing a refreshing gentle balance in the heat of 2020. Plenty of ageing potential on display, still a touch of reduction on the opening moments, softening to show sweet red cherry, rapsberry and tobacco, fine but plentiful tannins, plenty of character with a twist of charred sandalwood. 15% whole bunch fermentation. Impressive from winemaker Pierre Chapuis, at an estate where even this 2.5ha village wine has average vine age of 53 years. Bottled unfiltered. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
