Decanter   92

From 9ha of gravel and clay soils, this is a meaty, rich and chewy Pomerol that absolutely works. It has great tannic structure with give and pliability, full of rich black fruits, cassis and raspberry notes, and pulled along by slatey minerality. It has real texture, even though yet again you can tell the fruit flirts with the fresher end of ripeness. Still, this has huge potential, should age well, and is extremely well-handled.

Wine Advocate   91-93

A final blend of 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Bourgneuf is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black plums, cassis and black soil with hints of cigar box and wild thyme. Medium-bodied, fine-grained and refreshing in the mouth with beautiful fruit and earth layers, it finishes with a fragrant lift.

Glengarry Review   

It’s a very good year for Bourgneuf, 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. This is a 9ha property, the soil profile gravel and clay with an iron rich subsoil. Bold red fruits dominant, this is a very dense concentrated wine that is well structured. The Cabernet Franc although only 10% forms the structure of the tannins. The palate is wonderfully ripe with excellent freshness. This is very very good, the finish fruity and persistent.
