“Plump, juicy, and super-expressive. Flavors of succulent dark cherry, red plum, spice, new leather and licorice all infuse the blend with striking richness. The rich, full bodied wine has a deep shade with soft notes and a strong aroma. The supple wine becomes expansive, then sustained, ending with zero notes of bitterness. There is no doubt that this sumptuous and racy Saint-Émilion 2017 vintage has quite a bit of potential in future vintages.”- Antonio Galloni: 91 Points
