Score 90-93/100 · Wine Spectator

This has a mix of enticing dark plum and blueberry fruit woven with a solid graphite note and carrying through an alder-edged finish. Has the vintage’s velvety feel, but a little extra cut. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Score 93-94/100 · James Suckling

This is very big and rich wine with dense and rich tannins, lots of ripe fruit. Blackberry, blueberry flavors. Muscular yet polished. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Score 17/20 · Jancis Robinson MW

Exceptionally deep crimson. Meat and wild flowers on the nose - very interesting. Definitely out of the ordinary. Left-field wine that should not disappoint. Racy and lifted. Really very elegant. Chapeau! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

Score 93/100 · Decanter

Attractive dark red fruits, subtle liquorice and gently insisting tannins. One that will deliver pleasure earlier than some. There's a silky approachability, but it should also develop well. Apr 2016, Jane Anson, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2035
