JS97-98WE95-97WA94-96

$90 for a wine that is simply one of the finest of the right bank in 2016? File under "no-brainer." Galloni completely lost his cool over this one: "one of the most riveting wines of the vintage. Silky and supple on the palate, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, it takes over all the senses and never lets up. The flavors are bright, precise and beautifully nuanced. The 2016 is a stunningly beautiful bottle of wine and one of the finest reds of the year - it's as simple as that." Amen.

95–97. Barrel Sample. Fragrant, perfumed and juicy, this is already an attractive wine, though one that has the stuffing to cellar well for many years. The structure is striking and solidly firm. It will be an elegant wine with opulent tendencies.

This is a really fantastic PM! The licorice, fresh mushroom, sous bois and stone character is so exciting. It’s full and very layered with exceptional depth and length. Compressed and focused. Pure silk.
