James Suckling 93-94
Dense, rich red with blackberry and blueberry, walnut and dark-chocolate character. It’s full and layered with richness and softness for the vintage.
The 2020 Côte de Baleau is shaping up to be a very serious wine. Today it offers up a compelling mélange of blackberry, gravel, spice, licorice and espresso. From barrel, the 2000 presents an intriguing combination of fruit richness and structure that is utterly beguiling. This is such an exciting and compelling wine. I can't wait to taste it from bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2040
