(2/2022) "The 2019 Cote de Baleau takes quite a few minutes to settle in the glass. It has a very concentrated bouquet of black cherries, mulberry, touches of licorice and hints of graphite. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy black fruit and fine definition. Very focused, with a sensual and substantial finish. Superb. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2050."
(1/2022) "The 2019 Cote de Baleau is classy, super-polished and ready to offer pleasure. Bright floral and spice accents lead into a core of sweet red/purplish berry fruit, spice, mocha, tobacco, licorice and incense. The 2019 has gained a bit of weight in elevage, but it remains gracious and understated in bearing. I loved it. Drinking window: 2024 - 2034."
