James Suckling: 95 points

A juicy and fruity red that shows reserve and structure. Full body, polished and chewy tannins

and a long finish. Big wine for the vintage. Serious... again!

The Wine Advocate: 93 points

The 2016 La Cabanne is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked from the end of

September. François Estager told me that like last year, he did not add any sulphites until after

the malolactic fermentation. It has a well-defined bouquet with black cherries, a touch of cassis,

a lovely marine influence and crushed violets. It opens beautifully in the glass. The palate is

fresh on the entry with crisp, tensile tannin and very well-judged acidity. This Pomerol displays

great energy and poise, fanning out on the second half that demonstrates superb mineralité.

This is an unmissable follow-up to the 2015 La Cabanne. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Decanter: 91 points

Beautiful deep damson colour, as so many are this year. The fruit veers towards the sweet side,

with sticky summer damson jam and a welcome touch of bitter chocolate and grilled plums. It is

powerful, and although there is not quite the same lift as some, there is no doubt about the

luscious fruit. Medium term drinking. Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc.
