About

90-92

"The 2015 Siaurac has long been making some "nifty" Lalande-de-Pomerol and this is well worth investigating. It has a sensual, fruit-forward bouquet with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit that does not overpower. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is a couple of layers of new oak to be absorbed, but there is sufficient fruit to do that and it finished with attractive truffle and white pepper notes that offer fine salinity."

91 Decanter

"Second vintage with Penelope Godefroy, and at the start of the organic conversion. This is lovely, already accessible with its dark brambly fruits and soft tannins. The emphasis here is definitely on pleasure, and it's extremely tasty as a result. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030"

90 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Blackcurrants and leaves, as well as violets. The palate has silky yet dense and smooth tannins wrapped in dark-plum flavors. Drink or hold."

90 Wine Spectator

"Features a tasty core of steeped plum and black cherry fruit laced with dried anise, incense and mineral hints. Reveals a flash of savory through the finish, though the fruit has the upper hand overall. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 9,517 cases made."
