Awards and/or Press Quotes
Decanter 92-93/100 Points, "As with the 2010, and to a certain extent the 2014, this is a gorgeous, rich, powerful and balanced wine. It was only bottled in June 2018 and yet it's already tasting brilliant. It has silky tannins but is full of power and flesh, with utterly gorgeous black fruits." Jane Anson, July 2018
Jancis Robinson 16/20 Points, "Concentrated healthy crimson. Attractive, ripe leafiness on the nose (not meagre). Good balance though slightly muted."
Wine Enthusiast 92/100 Points, "The Pagès family, which has a group of estates in the Médoc, has produced a rich, concentrated wine at this château. While packed with black currant fruit from the 60% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, it also has a firm layer of tannins that will allow it to age. Drink from 2021." Roger Voss, December 2017
James Suckling 91/100 Points, "Shows finesse with polished tannins and beautiful fruit character, from walnuts to currants. Medium body, delicate tannins and a delicious finish. Drink after 2021." February 2019
