96 Points - James Suckling
"Full-bodied, layered and juicy young wine. Very tannic yet ripe and intense. Powerful finish. This will be excellent. Better than the 2015."

95 Points - Decanter
"A balanced, measured, incredibly tight delivery of the triumvirate of tannins, fruit and acidity. The architecture hits the level of the 2010, fairly unusual in a year where the tannins have such a deft brush stroke in the main. This is a great Gruaud that is going to run and run. Aged for 18 months in 80% new oak. As of 2017, half of the vineyard (approximately 40ha) is being worked biodynamically."

95 Points - The Wine Advocate

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"This delivers a pure beam of cassis and cherry preserves, underscored by a layer of warm dark earth. Stays polished in feel, with lovely freshness on the relatively open-knit finish."

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is rich and juicy, with fine tannins that come as much from the fruit as from the wood aging. It shows great promise for positive development."
