Jacques Perrin - Vinifera

Nez sur la confiture de baies noires (mûre, cerise), avec beaucoup de chair. Vin profond, velouté, qui met en avant la maturité d’un fruit bien mûr, riche, puissant.

The 2017 Les Grandes Murailles is a beautiful wine, but it is also a bit richer and more overt than it has been in the past. Inky blue/purplish fruit, chocolate, menthol, spice and sweet oak add to the wine's decidedly extroverted personality. The 2017 is an especially bold, luscious Grandes Murailles.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Grandes Murailles reveals a very pretty nose of potpourri, black tea and fragrant soil over a core of raspberry preserves, boysenberries, warm plums and iron ore. Medium-bodied, the palate is refreshing and well-textured with soft, rounded tannins, finishing long and savory. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2033

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Truffle, chocolate, plum and leafy notes on the nose lead to a medium bodied, polished, fresh wine. You'll find dark plummy, round fruits, silky tannins and a touch of oak on the back end. The wine is made from 100% old vine Merlot, reaching 14.4% alcohol

There’s a sheen of fine oak spice across this gently floral and leafy St.-Emilion. The palate has a nice core of quite fluid and attractively balanced, dark-plum flesh. Fine tannins. Drink or hold.

The 2017 Les Grandes Murailles (100% Merlot) is a plump, rounded, sexy 2017 that offers medium-bodied richness and depth, light tannin, and a relatively short finish. I love the purity of fruit of this seductive charmer that's going to drink nicely in its youth.
