This is a solid effort that showcases both great blackberry fruit and sweet tannins right at the forefront. There is also fine acidity and a layer of wood that gives a dry, firm, age-worthy aftertaste.Barrel sample:93–95
91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A soft, somewhat fleshy and opulent style of St.-Julien, this 2012 has a deep ruby/purple color, good minerality, moderate tannin, and a full but more precocious and accessible style than its neighbors such as Leoville Poyferre and Beychevelle. This is more along the lines of the juicy, succulent Talbot, but certainly has aging potential. Two to four years of bottle age is recommended and then consumption over the following two decades.
90 James Suckling
Blackcurrant, ripe plum and cedar character to this red on the nose, before giving way to a full to medium body, refined yet firm tannins and good acidity. A little lean.
