Wine Advocate: 91
The 2016 Chateau du Cartillon has a lifted, perfumed, quite floral bouquet that leans more towards red rather than black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe black fruit, hints of sage and clove, fine grip in the mouth with a fresh, slightly tarry, tobacco finish. That'll do nicely—one of the best wines I have tasted from this Haut-Médoc.

This wine is dry and firm. There is an indication of black fruit which needs to develop further. Because the wine has weight, it will eventually become rich and concentrated, worthy of medium-term aging.
James Suckling: 93
Another excellent Haut-Médoc that is rich and fleshy, but has lively acidity and a very attractive, minty freshness. The polished tannins give it plenty of drive at the long, mineral finish. Drink or hold.
