Very sophisticated attack with ripe fruit flavours and a touch of sweet oak amplifying the best bits of the cassis and rounding it. Good blackcurranty freshness and almost power - certainly drive in the good balance and length. Rating: 91 L&S (Apr 2014)

Opaque purple in color with notes of barbecue smoke, chalk dust, sweet medium to full-bodied blackcurrant mouthfeel with impressive, texture, purity, equilibrium and light to moderate tannins in the finish, this is certainly one of the most successful wines of the vintage. Because of the year, in this vintage, the wine is much more evolved and forward than it normally is. This beauty can be drunk in two or so years and should last 12-15. 2016-2031 Rating: 89-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Aug 2014)
(85% merlot, 13% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon): Good medium ruby. Captivating aromas of redcurrant, menthol, violet and licorice. Lovely inner-mouth floral lift to the mineral and inky red and dark berry flavors; offers much more clarity and cut than most 2013 Bordeaux, not to mention depth and sweetness of fruit. The finish is especially pure and precise--and long. Plenty of hidden density here--especially impressive in the context of the vintage. I went out of my way to taste this wine four different times just to be sure of my extremely positive first impression. In many respects, this is one of the elite wines of the vintage: the nose alone rates 94 or 95 points. Rating: 90-92 Ian d'Agata - Stephen Tanzer website(May 2014)
Depth on the nose with quite a strong red fruited character but the start of the palate is lighter and fresher with a nice mix of red and black fruits. Although firm on the back palate the tannins are not aggressive and there is some nice sweet fruit on the finish. 2017-28. Rating: 88-91 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(May 2014)
Rating: 89 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(May 2014)
(85 Merlot, 13 Cabernet Franc, 2 Cabernet Sauvignon) More explosively fruity with more presence in the glass that I expected from this often elegant estate. The palate is fairly smooth and well balanced. The only let down is that it is a little short. Rating: 16.5 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com(Apr 2014)
Rich, concentrated fruit. Spicy pork character on the palate, which doesn’t quite seem right in this context. Something a bit like blue cheese as well. Bitter notes to finish, and a fair whack of tannin. Rather too esoteric. (RH) Drink 2016-2022. Rating: 15 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2014)
Cherry and spice nose. Firm and structured, though less power than some years. Clean and persistent. Drink: 2020-2030. Rating: 17.25 James Lawther MW, decanter.com(Apr 2014)
The pure aromas are very expressive, with a friendly feel to the raspberry, plum and cherry fruit, layered with floral and anise notes. Stays stylish through the finish Rating: 89–92 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator(Apr 2014)
This is incredibly long and intense for the vintage, with raspberry and citrus character. Fine tannins. It goes on for minutes. An electrifying wine for the vintage, from organically grown grapes. Rating: 92-93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Apr 2014)
