    Made with consulting advice from Michel Rolland’s team, the 2016 Château Cote de Baleau is a plump, sexy, fruit-loaded beauty that gives up tons of ripe black fruits, charred meat, and earthy, herbal aromas and flavors. Textured, upfront, and ready to go, drink it any time over the coming decade or so. (3/1/2019)

  • 92 James Suckling

    This has good intensity with dark berry and plum aromas, as well as alluringly spicy oak influence. There’s a dense and juicy core of very attractive, concentrated red plums and berries, framed in well-judged tannins. Try from 2022. (2/4/2019)

    Dense garnet red with purple reflections. The bouquet of this wine is revealed in a filigree way. It has fruit, minerality and freshness. On the palate, the body is creamy, full and racy. The tannins are powerful and reveal themselves slowly. They have the material to stand up to the fern of the acidic structure and, in the end, a nice balance results. Beautiful fruity and persistent intensity on the finish. (2/4/2019)
