About

98

"The 2014 Lorraine offers more black fruits than normal, with plenty of Reva-like iodine, sagebrush, melted licorice, and smoked earth notes as well as more black olive and cassis with time in the glass. It has the classic silk and elegance on the palate, however, and offers a full-bodied, layered, voluptuous texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a blockbuster finish. As always, it’s the most seamless and elegant in the lineup. Drink it any time over the coming 20 years or more."

96 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Lurid violet. A highly expressive, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes blackberry and blueberry preserves, candied flowers, incense and exotic spices. Alluringly sweet, palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur, violet pastille and spicecake flavors are complicated by suggestions of black pepper and bitter chocolate. Smooth, steadily building tannins add gentle grip to an extremely long, seamless finish that shows outstanding detail and emphatically repeats the floral and mineral notes."
