Description

“Reminds me of the splendid 1998. Full-bodied yet balanced and rich, showing velvety tannins and a long and beautiful finish. All here. Better than the 2015?” (4/2016) James Suckling

“The 2016 Bon Pasteur has an atypically modest and almost bashful bouquet at first, one that required coaxing from the glass, eventually offering blackberry, briary and subtle floral aromas that are very classy. The palate is well defined with crisp tannin. This Bon Pasteur is, you might say, more “classic” than the 2015 and more reserved, but displays excellent tension with impressive detail on the finish. It might not quite possess the persistence on the aftertaste of its peers higher up on the plateau, but it is a very, very good Bon Pasteur that I prefer to the 2015. I would not be surprised if this lands at the top of my banded score once in bottle.” (4/2017) Neal Martin for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“A rich, inviting style, with warm blueberry, fig and blackberry compote flavors backed by a solid dose of roasted apple wood. Flirts with extracted, but stays polished and fresh enough on the finish. For fans of the style.” (4/2017) Wine Spectator
