About the Producer

92 Points - Ian Blackburn

A plump, juicy, dense, blockbuster 2016 Bordeaux classic...heavy clay texture, dense cherry fruits, textural mouthfeel with Cabernet Franc artistry with strokes of pencil lead, graphite, right bank minerality.  So good now.

90 Points - Wine Advocate
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Maison Blanche is a little youthfully shy to begin, opening out to subtle kirsch, blackberries and cassis notes with wafts of wild sage, underbrush and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy red and black berry flavors, with a grainy frame and refreshing finish.
