La Violette 2016 (750ML)
97 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Violette opens with fragrant cigar box, black tea, wilted roses and spice cake scents with a core of warm black plums, black cherries and mulberries plus a hint of star anise. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers layer upon layer of black fruits and floral sparks, framed by firm, very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Beautiful." 11/18
"92-95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: ""The 2016 La Violette is dense, powerful and authoritative in its expression of the vintage. Chocolate, black fruit, smoke, leather and grilled herbs, along with big tannins, give the wine its decidedly brooding, virile personality. Hints of tobacco, licorice and cedar add aromatic nuance. Tasted two times."" 4/17"
97 Points, James Suckling: "Loads of plums with spices and hazelnuts. Full-bodied, dense and velvety with layers of fruit and ripe tannins. Brilliant and focused with a long and beautiful finish. Shows class and greatness. Try after 2025." 2/19
"93-96 Points, Wine Spectator: ""Warm and inviting, delivering plum and blackberry compote notes infused with anise and backed by a smoldering alder hint. Suave, exotic juice"" 4/17"
