About

93+

"The 2016 from Domaine des Billards is a stunning young wine and this is going to be another classic, long distance runner vintage from this icon in Saint-Amour. The bouquet of the 2016 is very pure and very precise, offering up a youthful blend of cherries, sweet cranberries, gamebird, dark soil tones, a touch of espresso, fresh thyme, woodsmoke and lovely spice tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tangy, with a primary profile, lovely depth at the core, fine backend soil signature, a touch of tannin and a long, vibrant and still quite tightly-knit finish. This is certainly approachable today, but there is so much here waiting to be unleashed when the acids relax a bit and the tannins soften that I would not touch a bottle for another year or two, as it will age beautifully and is going to be a great wine a decade or more down the road. 2019-2040+.
