TheThe 2019 Réserve de la Comtesse is conspicuously deep in colour. The bouquet takes time to unfurl with exceedingly pure blackberry, raspberry and cassis aromas, the oak seamlessly integrated. The palate is very well balanced with fresh acidity, fine grain tannins, a touch of salinity developing towards the finish that has more grip than previous vintages. Superb.

Intense and exciting. Dark though, a serious edge to the fruit. Damson and sloe and some mulberry - then nicely ripe dark raspberries too. Lots of seasoning here - some toast and some crackedIntense and exciting. Dark though, a serious edge to the fruit. Damson and sloe and some mulberry - then nicely ripe dark raspberries too. Lots of seasoning here - some toast and some cracked peppercorns. This leads to a more mineral stony line a thread of undergrowth and hedgerow - with elderberry and a waft of very dark, salted chocolate. The feel is broad and richly weighted - but still quite well bound up. We tasted this throughout the afternoon and it loosened up the rich tannins softening slowly - the juice getting more generous and inviting over time. A seriously serious second wine! What a delight this will be to revisit in 10 or more years' time. Bravo!L&S(Jun 2020)

No excess weight - just veryYes! A serious feel. Lovely brightness and energy here. Good almost lightweight feel when it hits the palate - but lots going on. Juicy, pretty red fruits and super flow. No excess weight - just very delicious. Stewed strawberry and sweet smashed red cherries, and a faint note of mocha - all held in place with good, firmish grip that balances it all and keep this charging on so well. It is the quality of the tannins that really impress here, a perfect frame for the delicious, deep fruit core, just enough rub to remind you this is not so 'Petit' after all.L&S(Jun 2020)

Firm morello cherry and redder berries on the nose, straightened out with that characteristic pencil lead too. Succulent and juicy on the palate. Red cherry-flesh explodes with deeply satisfying tang and juiciness. Great balance and measure. Fruit is redder and prettier - with a note of sweetness again. Tannins so slight you don’t notice them build - but they get quite firm and hold well. Delicious. Long life ahead - but very hard to resist already!L&S(Jun 2020)
