Michel Rolland, renowned Bordeaux oenologist
“In my long career, I’ve had some top-quality vintages, such as the 1982, 1989, 1990, 2000, 2001, 2009, 2010, 2015, but I think I’ve just witnessed the making of the best.”

“After 2015, a great year for Bordeaux, here is 2016, which is different but just as great. This is a wonderful expression of a vintage, which will be remembered as one of the greatest wines, ticking all the boxes that Bordeaux has ever produced.”

Mathieu Cartonnier, General Manager of négociantfirm CVBG
“What’s fascinating about this vintage is its distinctiveness. It is like no other. I can’t think of another Bordeaux vintage with this quality of tannins, this smoothness and freshness all at the same time.”
In conclusion: three opinions that describe this vintage as an unparalleled success, while being unique because of the weather patterns it underwent. Wine lovers and other inquirers, be warned!!
Keep calm, it’s maturing in our ageing cellar!
