Decanter   89

A serious tannic structure makes this austere and gripping. It's from 8.3ha of what Moueix describes as dark soil on an iron pan, which translates as clay and sand (Moueix distributes but the estate is owned by the Moreau family). This wine is hard to work your way through at first, but there are gorgeously nuanced, tight cassis notes with liquorice root, floral touches and menthol. The shields are fully up at this stage but give it time, as this is promising and should age well.

James Suckling   90-91

A firm and silky red with blackberry and chocolate character. Medium body, medium tannins and a juicy finish.

Wine Advocate   89-91

A final blend of 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Plince offers up intense crème de cassis, blueberry pie and licorice notes with touches of bay leaves, cinnamon stick and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with a chewy frame and lively line supporting the muscular fruit, finishing on an earthy note.
