Expert Review
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

The 2016 Carignan Prima felt just a tad overdone on the nose with cassis and blueberry fruit that need to muster more delineation. The palate is very smooth on the entry, given a sheen by the vanilla new oak that renders this Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux very seductive, but perhaps expresses more of the winemaking than the terroir. Let's see how this performs in barrel.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

Super-ripe red cherry and plum notes give the 2016 Haut Bertinerie much of its exuberant, racy personality. Forward and succulent, with no hard edges, it will drink well right out of the gate.

Jancis Robinson MW

Light, sweet oaky nose. Not very refreshing and pretty light. 15/20
