2016 Puy-Blanquet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1306238 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Focused fruit, such as raspberries and blackberries with chalk and flowers. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long and defined finish. Quite muscular. Try after 2021. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Puy-Blanquet is a gorgeous, classically built Saint-Émilion that emphasizes freshness and purity. Deceptively medium in body, the 2016 is supple, deep and incredibly inviting. Sweet tobacco, cedar, leather and licorice add lovely aromatic top notes. Pliant and inviting, this incredibly delicious yet understated Saint-Émilion will be hard to resist in its youth. It is also one of the undisputed Sleeper gems of the vintage. Don't miss it. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure and focused, with damson plum, red currant and raspberry coulis flavors entwined at the core, while a bright, iron-tinged streak of mineral adds lift throughout. Shows mouthwatering drive on the finish. A wine of elegant charm. Best from 2021 through 2030. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Puy-Blanquet delivers black cherries, warm redcurrants and black plum preserves on the nose with wafts of stewed tea, tobacco and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate has a pleasant chewiness to the texture and plenty of earth-laced red and black fruits, finishing on a peppery note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A blend dominated by Merlot with big, ripe fruits and sweet tannins, this is already an attrac-tive wine. Structure and density are very apparent but don’t mask the fruitiness. Drink from 2021. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

What a great start to the tasting. The best we have ever tasted for sure. So aromatic, voluptuous wine with black raspberry aromas and flavors. So sweet and lovely you want to drink it immediately.
Drink from 2018 to 2028

At the Moueix tasting April 6th this super affordable wine went up against the big guns from this portfolio and absolutely held its own. This is sweet, fruity and oh so smooth with raspberry and cherry flavor in spades. The dark and creamy middle has wonderful freshness and the finish has the perfect amount of grip. This is one of the great values of the appellation.

My top Right Bank value in 2016 has to be Château Puy-Blanquet. I have always enjoyed this château's wines, but the 2016 is operating on a whole new level. Deep dark color with notes of cherry, vanilla, bay leaf and black olive fill the glass. The palate is decadent, sweet and round with supple tannins and mouth-watering acidity. This is by far the best Puy Blanquet I have ever tasted!
