Wine Advocate: 90
The 2016 Tour de Pez comes sprinting out of the blocks on the nose with precocious black cherries and blueberry fruit, violets and iris following just behind. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite tensile in the mouth with good acidity, flecks of brown spice and meat juices imparting a savory vein on the finish. There is plenty of character to this Saint Estèphe and it should age with style.
Decanter: 87
This has cinnamon toast edging and some violet floral notes that are highly attractive, but overall the flavours seem a little forced. A seductive early to medium term drinker.
