- The 2011
‘Very impressive.. starting to open beautifully.. exceptionally well-defined.. excellent mouthfeel.. great persistence.. Still improving, but already highly accessible.’
Colin Hay, The Drinks Business
- The 2012
‘The nose immediately puts one in the vicinity of Pomerol.. restrained and elegant a cooler, darker fruit profile. Plush, full, rich.. gloriously soft and enveloping tannins. Great intensity but with no harshness at all. This is starting to drink very well indeed.’ Colin Hay
'...attractive raspberry, red cherry, soy and hung game scents on a nose that needs 20–30 minutes to really coalesce. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, supple tannins. The soy element comes through quite strongly on the midpalate.. real edge.. partnered with food, it works well and, strangely, seems not a million miles away from a Tuscan Sangiovese in style.' Neal Martin, 89
- The 2015
‘...this wine is just beginning to show signs of maturity, with tannins that are smoothing out and blackberry fruits and generous Merlot flavours coming forward. Drink from late 2021...’
Roger Voss, 91
‘.. impressively intense.. super-svelte.. very attractive and very accessible... soft yet rich, lively and energetic yet powerful too and full of potential. Black cherries, sundried tomatoes, and that signature almost ferrous minerality once again. A lovely finish of almonds and cherries.’ Colin Hay
- The 2016
'A grand wine from a grand vintage… very impressive fresh, lithe and energetic yet plump and plush. Gorgeous texture, impressive intensity… A great advert for its terroir. Very promising.’ Colin Hay, The Drinks Business
‘.. cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas laced with soy.. a subtle truffle note emerging with time.. more purity.. depth and silkier texture.. delicious.’ Neal Martin, 90
- The 2018
'...lusciously textured dark cherries, black plums, licorice and chocolate are all over the place... more ripe fruits, cocoa and espresso. Soft and silky, forward, fresh and fruity...’ Jeff Leve, 91
‘A very balanced, creamy-textured red with blueberry, chocolate and walnut flavors. It’s medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink after 2022, but already very attractive.’ James Suckling, 92
‘Lots of pretty red fruits, white chocolate, flowers.. medium-bodied and has a silky, seamless texture, impressive tannins, and a great finish. This smoky, complex, beautifully textured Lalande de Pomerol is going to keep for 10-12 years.’ Jeb Dunnuck, 91
- The 2019
‘.. impeccably made wine.. a dense purple hue as well as a great nose of wild strawberries, darker cherries, leafy herbs, and spring flowers. Soft, supple, and just undeniably delicious, it’s a terrific buy for those looking for a great Bordeaux to drink over the coming decade.’ Jeb Dunnuck, 92
‘On the nose you find espresso, leafy herbs, spice, earth and plums. Medium-bodied, fresh and spicy on the palate, with touches of olives that accompany the plums, cherries and chocolate, this will be better if allow it to rest for a year or two.’ Jeff Leve, 92
2019 Cuve 8a
'...well-defined, taut and linear... sappy black fruit... good grip, black pepper and graphite notes toward the finish. A fascinating and quite delicious 2019.'
Neal Martin, 92
