Professional Reviews


(from 35+ year old vines). Reduction presently overshadows the fruit. There is excellent volume, power and richness to the dense, serious and sappy flavors that also deliver fine length though not quite the same depth as the best in the range on the slightly warm finale. Once again, patience will be required. (90-93)/2028+


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Barely medium red. Ripe but high-pitched aromas of raspberry, strawberry and licorice complicated by a captivating floral quality. The plushest and sweetest of these young '16s but also with terrific inner-mouth lift and an element of delicacy to its precise red berry, salty mineral and soil flavors. This sexy, classy wine finishes with rather massive dusty tannins that avoid dryness. (Bitouzet describes this wine as "the German cousin: another branch of the family.") It strikes me as suaver than its even more tannic 2015 sibling.
