‘The 2022 Cuve 8a sees no wood, unusual in Bordeaux, though it pays dividends, and represents one of my favorite wines from Lalande-de-Pomerol. It has a fresh bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, light floral and orange blossom scents. The palate is well-balanced and lightly spiced, with good definition, grainy tannins and a very elegant and persistent finish. I look forward to tasting this from bottle - great potential.‘ Neal Martin, 91-93
‘The Cuvée 8a by Canon Chaigneau is characterized by fresh, floral nuances. The bouquet reveals delicate notes of peonies and the refreshing scent of raspberries. The fruit intensity can also be found in the beginning. The wine is of good density, tasty and is supported by tannins that are still somewhat firm, but harmonizing with the acid structure. I think time will round off the rough edges a bit, but actually you have to praise the energy, the dynamics and the ambitions that are in this wine.’ Yves Beck, 92-93
'Notes of blue fruit and violets with spices and wet stones. Medium-bodied, toned and crunchy with fine-grained, silky tannins. Fresh finish.' James Suckling, 91-92
‘21ha wine estate owned by Romik Arconian located on the top of the Néac plateau on good quality clay-limestone soils. This is the unoaked cuvée, which can be a little austere in most vintages, but in the rich exuberance of 2022, it works. Remains a little tart in its acdity but there is great depth and intent to the black fruits, and momentum through the palate..' Jane Anson, 90
'Pleasant fruit on the nose. Good concentration. Dense.'
