The 2015 Soutard felt a little warm on the nose when I tasted the barrel sample, the inky black fruit smudged by the alcohol. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, fleshy and harmonious in the mouth, the acidity perhaps lower than its peers with attractive strawberry and candied orange peel notes surfacing on the finish. I was expecting more from this estate, although let's see if it achieves more composure once in bottle. The élevage will have to be carefully handled.

Bright and extremely balanced. Blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Extremely refined and long. Best ever. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

One of the first wines to be offered en primeur - at a confident premium on 2014. Very dark indeed. Overripe nose. Then a little mean and tight on the palate. Unexpected! Awkward and demanding. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032

Investment beginning to pay here and the class of the terroir is apparent. Lifted aromatics. Minerality with ample fruit and a fine grain of tannin. Builds on the palate to a long, persistent finish. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2035
