Decadent and attractive with blueberry and blackberry aromas that are abundant and clear. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very structured and poised. Try from 2023.
The 2016 Maillet is medium to deep garnet-purple colored, and pronounced plums, black cherries and warm black raspberries leap from the glass with hints of mocha and cigar box plus a waft of violets. Full-bodied, rich and packed with generous plum and blackberry preserves layers, it has a solid, velvety frame and fantastic length. (LPB)
The 2016 Maillet has a smudged bouquet, a little warmth coming through and blurring the lines of the black cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is better with crisp and slightly edgy tannin, tobacco-tinged black fruit with a grippy, slightly austere finish that just needs a little more flesh to balance it out. You know, it might well come good by the time of bottling. Stay tuned. (AG)
