2016 Les Grands Chenes, Médoc

SKU #1427636 92 points James Suckling

 Very attractive red fruit and spices with a background, tarry edge that leads to a palate that offers ample sweet fruit on first impression with bright acidity and a long, fresh and flavorful, darker-fruit finish.  (2/2019)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This ripe wine is full of great fruit aromas and flavors. The tannins are generous and rich, supported by rounded black-plum and -berry fruits. It should cellar well through the medium term. (RV)  (4/2017)

90 points Decanter

 Heavily extracted yet well made and carefully thought out. Black fruits are joined by liquorice and smoky bacon tinged oak which dominates the palate but is undeniably appealing. It could let the light in a little more but it has succulence and kerb appeal, and I tasted it several times over primeurs week and always found it enjoyable. (JA)  (4/2017)

90 points Vinous

 The 2016 Les Grands Chênes is perfumed and nicely lifted, with gorgeous floral and spice notes that perk up the red berry fruit nicely. Medium in body and quite gracious, the Grands Chênes is especially refined in this vintage. Crushed flowers, mint and spice note add character. The 2016 is far more refined from bottle than it was from barrel. In this tasting, it is pure class. (AG)  (1/2019)

Here is a toasty and broad wine that proudly struts its oak influence. This is husky and deep with the array of dark fruit keeping the vanilla and spice firmly in check on the full, satisfying finish.

A generous and full body wine, that is toasty, and with a tremendous amount of fruit. Still, it is balanced and complex. I would suggest decanting for an hour, and indulge with grilled meats and vegetables!
