Tasted by Jane Anson at Bordeaux, 01 Jun 2020
"Powerful and concentrated black cherry fruits, licorice root edge, but it handles it well. Salinity on the finish picks things up and gives a mouthwatering edge. Vinified in a mix of new oak barrels and clay amphora of 3hl and 5hl. A yield of 37hl/ha, with harvest from 19 September to 8 October. Drinking Window 2027 - 2040."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 90-92
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos St. Martin prances out of the glass with energetic Morello cherries, blackberries and boysenberries scents plus hints of cracked black pepper, cardamom, dried mint and fragrant earth. Medium-bodied, the palate is refreshing, delicately crafted and jumping with verve, framed by finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and lifted."
CORNEY & BARROW 17-17.5 POINTS
"Sophie Fourcade is an old friend with whom we have been working with since 1987 (with a slight break in 1997 when we shared different views on pricing!) It is a joy to rekindle the relationship – again a C&B exclusivity – with the vineyard, all 1.3 hectares (3 acres) of it, now perfectly aged and of course beautifully sited between the 1st Growths Grand Cru Beau-Séjour Bécot and Beauséjour Duffau Lagarrosse with the tinkling bells of a third 1st Growth Château Angélus somewhat further down on the plains. Profound colour of deepest ruby. The nose is high toned and spicy, strawberry fruited at first then a denser, more muscular, meaty perfume. The palate is sweetly structured, dense again, with a briary, chewy concentration, a touch of oak and significant length. Bravo! Recommended drinking from 2025 - 2031."
