Critic Notes

A bright, floral-edged style, with honeysuckle and heather notes up front, followed by tasty pineapple, peach and apricot flavors. Shows good energy overall. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Score: 90-93/100Wine Spectator

Intense grilled pineapple, crystallised ginger and fresh citrus aromas. Rich, dense and tactile flavours of mango and papaya, with orange marmalade nuances. Lovely wine. Same soil as Doisy-Daëne, but a little lower in altitude and in refinement. Is this the best Cantegril ever? Apr 2016, Ian D'Agata, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2018-2022

Score: 90-/100DecanterDrinking Window: 2018-2022

Big and broad. Not very subtle but with nice pear-juice undertow. Then some green acidity. Probably won't be a long laster but may well give lots of pleasure. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2018-2025
