    Zachys Notes
    94-96 Points, Christopher Deas, Zachys Buying Team: "Tasted three times during En Primeur. With its prime location across from Troplong Mondot and near Tertre Rotebouef and Barde Haut, and Peter Kwok's team, this small, biodynamically run estate is easily one of the most watched projects on the Right Bank. Their terraced vineyards with old vines reaches through the limestone and gets to the blue clay underneath and gives the wine depth, minerality, and backbone to go along with its expansive core of black fruit. It is easily one of the values of the vintage (once again) and that is saying a lot as we tasted through 400+ wines. We had the same reaction with the 2016, but in 2018 there is more of everything - a deeper concentration of fruit; big, but well integrated tannins, freshness and energy. Sure, the silky texture and ripe tannins that has become a trademark of the estate is hugely present, but this wine remains light on its feet with lift and the limestone spine screaming through. Expect to find rich nuances of blackberry, damson, plum, along with crushed violets, black licorice, spice, chalk, and salt. Just 4,000 cases are produced and few wines deliver so much at this price point. Bravo to managing director Jean Christophe Meyrou and winemaker Jerome Aguirre for making a wine of this quality accessible to so many." (4/2018)
    James Suckling Notes
    96-97 Points, James Suckling: "Blueberry and blackberry character with hints of white pepper and chalk. Salty, too. Full-bodied, tight and polished with fantastic texture and length. Very closed and tight with gorgeous tannin quality." 4/19
