2016 Le Prieuré, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $75)

SKU #1305732 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the unquestioned Sleeper jewels of the year, the 2016 Le Prieuré is off the charts beautiful. Silky and impossibly refined, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total precision. Today, the 2016 is a bit more restrained than it was from barrel, when it was a more overt wine. That is not a bad thing, though, as I suspect the 2016 is going to need a number of years to be at its finest. Dark, beautifully perfumed and gracious, Le Prieuré represents the height of finesse in Saint-Émilion. Jean-Claude Berrouet consults for the Artemis Group, which is now the sole owner of Le Prieuré. The 2016 is a fabulous wine by any measure. Don't miss it. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Outer quote mark Paul Goldschmidt and Artemis (Latour) work together on this wine, with Penelope Godfroy as technical director. It has always had excellent potential that is now being realised. Soft, plush fruit and a lovely touch of austerity from the limestone, restrained but with evident power underneath. The tannins are plush and this is an expertly judged, juicy and vibrant wine in the St-Émilion signature. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

One of the great under-the-radar successes in Bordeaux, the 2016 Le Prieuré was produced during the Artemis (Latour) ownership phase and is a bit of a singular rendition from the estate. This is one that's tough to live up the billing it's been given, but does so with ease. There's a purity and focus in this wine, with a good showing of minerality laced between soft black fruits. The super-fine tannins give it another level of sophistication. For those looking for a more elegant and graceful style of St-Emilion that still has a depth of flavor, this is a superb example. Ready to go now, it can be enjoyed anytime in the next two decades.

I love this wine. Toasty and mineral aromas. Very elegant wine with layers of ripe fruit which hides the tannins.
Drink from 2020 to 2035
