As usual a tour de force of superconcentrated oaky mass. Even the extreme winemaking cannot entirely disguise the quality of the terroir here, which shines compared to the other Perse wines. Powerful concentration, but still some lift and interest. As usual this is hard to love at this stage, and it will remain controversial, but earlier vintages show that as it matures the mass will diminish and more elegance will emerge. Rating: 93-94+?

This is really something. Sort of speechless when I taste it. It shows evocative aromas of wet earth, oyster shell, dust, tile, blackberries and blueberries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a length and intensity that is so, so fine. A wine in perfect harmony. Complete. Hard not not to drink. Energetic and balanced. Better to wait for 10 years.

60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. 37 ha. 36 hl/ha. No need for over-extraction because the grapes were naturally ripe. Picked until 9 October. Rich and silky. Blackish crimson. Massive build. Very sweet - but there is some freshness too. Very round tannins. More fluid and less astringent than many vintages. 14.55% Drinking range: 2028 - 2045 Rating: 17+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2016)
Follows recent vintages with more Cabernet Franc (22%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (18%) in the blend. Fragrant dark fruit and spice notes. Powerful tannic frame but the tannins are really refined. Opulent mid-palate but minerality and tension runs through to a firm, driving finish. Accomplished but needs time. Drinking range: 2025 - 2045 Rating: 95 James Lawther MW, decanter.com(Apr 2016)
