Le Guide Hachette des Vins 2016 (France) January 2016
2 ETOILES Cette Réserve Privée, élevée dix-huit mois en barriques neuves, a d'emblée séduit le jury par son bouquet très expressif et complexe de vanille, de pain d'épice, de tabac et de prune. Rond et plein, le palais livre une jolie matière soutenue par des tanins soyeux et un boisé encore dominateur, qui laisse s'exprimer la fraîcheur du fruit. Une remarquable réussite, qui fait écho au coup de cœur obtenu en 2010. Apogée suggéré: 2018-2024 et Accord gourmand: Tournedos Rossini

The Wine Orbit - Sam Kim (New Zealand) December 2015
4.5 Stars & 91 Points Classically structured and restrained, this is an elegant rendition from the Left Bank. Aromas of dark plum,walnut, cigar box, game lead to a beautifully poised palate that delivers sweet berry flavours and rich savoury complexity. It is firm and sturdy, and very long on the finish. At its best: now 2020.
