The 2021 La Violette is deep garnet-purple colored. It has a fragrant nose of kirsch, black cherry preserves, and blueberry compote, plus suggestions of potpourri, tilled soil, and Ceylon tea. The medium-bodied palate has a quiet intensity of red and blue fruits with soft, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and perfumed. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

The 2021 La Violette has a typically precocious bouquet with violet-tinged blackberry and cassis fruit. The oak is nicely integrated and it feels less ostentatious than previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins and good grip. This is very pure with a dash of black pepper infusing the mélange of black and blue fruit. There is plenty of substance on the finish that should ensure this Pomerol will age well in bottle. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Subtle floral nose, blackcurrants and purple flowers - some red cherry and perfume too which continues on the palate. I like the boldness here, this is dark and serious and you get that chocolate and liquorice more than the overt fruit or acidity at the moment. Quite strict, focused in one layer from start to finish. It has good clarity and precision, feels clean and well worked with a crispness as well as a firm backbone that drives the wine. It’s just a little sombre and serious but dedicated. Shows lots of promise. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Captures the graphite edge of the best Pomerols this year, with clear quality to the cassis, redcurrant and black cherry fruit, totally delicious and overshoots the vintage, with raspy but chewy tannins, a little austere but softened by black chocolate and liquorice bud. Vignobles Péré-Vergé. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Sweet berry and spice with some pie-crust character. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. - James Suckling

Offering up aromas of cherries, cassis and plums mingled with notions of licorice, spices and creamy new oak, the 2021 La Violette is a medium to full-bodied, rich and layered wine built around a fleshy core of fruit and powdery, liberally extracted tannins. Like its stablemate Le Gay, it's vinified entirely in new barrels. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
