92-96 Points Jasper Morris
Fine glowing purple. A little pretty fruit on the nose but it is quite discreet. Softly ripe on the palate, rather gorgeous, begins discreetly then fills the mouth at the back, on the cusp of red and black, tannins seamlessly entwined, and very long.

The 2018 les Pruliers from Grégory Gouges is also outstanding and was unaffected by the July storms. The bouquet is very pure and already shows lovely complexity, delivering a combination of black plums, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, a touch of anise, complex soil tones, bitter chocolate, pigeon and a topnote of sweet herbs. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off marvelous mid-palate depth, with superb balance and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a very, very long, very classy finish. All this needs is time to blossom.
