2016 Maillet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299369 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Decadent and attractive with blueberry and blackberry aromas that are abundant and clear. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very structured and poised. Try from 2023. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Maillet is medium to deep garnet-purple colored, and pronounced plums, black cherries and warm black raspberries leap from the glass with hints of mocha and cigar box plus a waft of violets. Full-bodied, rich and packed with generous plum and blackberry preserves layers, it has a solid, velvety frame and fantastic length. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Maillet has a smudged bouquet, a little warmth coming through and blurring the lines of the black cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is better with crisp and slightly edgy tannin, tobacco-tinged black fruit with a grippy, slightly austere finish that just needs a little more flesh to balance it out. You know, it might well come good by the time of bottling. Stay tuned. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

Pomerol with power! The 2016 from Maillet is an elegant and plush wine with beautiful structure to carry it along across your palate. Delivering ripe black cherries, summer plums, with hints of violets and warm baking spices, this Bordeaux is set to capture your heart. This wine would make a great introduction to Bordeaux for any admirer of Napa wines curious about what France has to offer.

We missed tasting this, but we heard from very good sources that the wine is as good as 2015 and that is saying a lot. Great Pomerol for under $40? Tough to beat.
Drink from 2020 to 2030
