"This has ripe and polished fruit, with hints of mint and new wood. A ripe blackberry flavor pushes through the firm tannins, and it should become more rich over the next 5-6 years. The vineyard is situated in the northern part of the Médoc appellation." (03/13)

"Alluring, with a polished structure that lets the smoldering bay leaf, anise, steeped plum and warm paving stone notes play out. Shows latent grip and solid depth. Best from 2014 through 2022. 160,000 cases made. -JM" (03/13)
"Exceptional vintage. Well-balanced with a cherry robe. Round and robust at the same time, ripe fruits and vanilla wooded aromas. The Chateau Poitevin, cru bourgeois is the main wine. It represents the true Medoc with its traditions and passion of the winemaker. A wine to keep." - Winery
