Critic Notes

A tight and pretty wine with blackberry, blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body and fine tannins. Linear and solid. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com

Score: 91-92/100James Suckling

The 2016 Barrail Saint André has a crisp and tightly wound, but fresh bouquet with subtle oyster shell notes infusing the black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a little low in acidity with a simple and rather monotone finish that needs to develop more personality. I was expecting more from this Saint Emilion.

Isabel Ferrando on finding the 'Saint Prefert identity'
"Proprietress Isabel Ferrando has taken her Saint Prefert estate to France’s highest level, and she’s unquestionably making some of the most profound wines on earth today, including both reds and whites."
