Tasted by Jane Anson at Bordeaux, 20 May 2020
"Bright berry fruits here majoring on blueberry and raspberry, acidity a touch evident but smoothed over with coffee bean and smoked cedar hints. Great quality for a medium term drinker from the Moueix stable. 45% new oak. Drinking Window 2023 - 2034."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 91-93
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 la Grave rolls out of the glass with vibrant, open-knit scents of kirsch, black raspberries, blackberries and redcurrant jelly plus touches of underbrush, dried Provence herbs and stewed tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has lovely richness with bags of ripe, savory-laced black fruits, framed by soft tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a peppery kick. Nice!"
CORNEY & BARROW Score 18/20
In our debriefing meeting with Edouard Moueix last week we collectively came to the conclusion that there is no better Pomerol at this price available on the market. It is stunning value but more importantly stunning quality with a beautiful gravel and fine clay soil and a perfectly managed vineyard of just 8 hectares (19.5 acres). Acquired by Christian Moueix in 1971, it is a jewel. Opaque ruby. Delectable nose of summer pudding and cream, fresh, sweetly plump. The palate is even more profound, beautifully extracted, with well cloaked tannins that make the sensual power deep without being coarse, and with a full chocolatey finish. This is quite simply delectable. Recommended drinking from 2025 - 2030."
