Tasting notes


2017 vintage. A dense and rich rosé with sliced strawberries and hints of lemons. Full-bodied and very flavorful. More like a light red than a rosé. Drink or hold.

James Suckling
Château Cavalier, cuvée Grand Cavalier

2015 vintage. A powerful and rich young red with blackberry, blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and chewy. Best ever from here. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc.

James Suckling
Château Montlabert

2015 vintage. Smoky and spicy, this dense wine is rich with black-currant Cabernet Sauvignon layered with solid tannins. Juicy acidity cuts through this firm texture to give a crisper, lifted edge. The wine has a way to go, so don't drink before 2023.

Roger Voss
Tour Prignac

2017 vintage. A rich and solid white with a phenolic texture. Full body and lots of dried apricots and dried peaches. Hints of bitter lemons. Very ripe. 30% sauvignon gris to this makes it stylish.

James Suckling
Château Ferrande blanc

2016 vintage. A pretty, juicy red with plenty of dark fruit and layers of flavors that are quite upfront. The tannins are ripe and there is nice depth to suggest it should age for a decade or more easily.

Jeannie Cho Lee
Château Ferrande rouge

2015 vintage. The 2015 Haut Coulon is much bigger and darker than it was from barrel. The Petit Verdot component is much more evident today, in both the wine's flavor profile and its overall structural feel. Scorched earth, tobacco, dried herb and dark fruit are given an extra level of concentration and richness by fermentation in barrel. Drinking window : 2018 – 2026.

Antonio Galloni
Château Haut-Coulon

2014 vintage. A fragrant nose that combines spices, blue fruit and cocoa. Medium-to full-bodied with succulent fruit throughout, soft tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Good now but better in a year or two.
