The 2016 Les Grands Chênes is bright, classy and super-polished, with striking energy to its red- and purplish-hued fruits. Grilled herbs, smoke, leather and iron overtones develop in the glass, adding further shades of complexity. The flavors are brisk and finely delineated in this super-expressive Médoc from Bernard Magrez. Les Grands Chênes is often one of the best values in Bordeaux, and the 2016 looks like it will continue that trend. Don't miss it. (AG)
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)
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)
This is very solid with a beautiful core of blackberry, wet-earth and walnut character. Full body and a long and flavorful finish. One of the best in a long time. Better than 2014?
