Wine Advocate: 93-95 Points

"The 2016 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a clean and pure bouquet with ample smoke-tinged blackberry and raspberry fruit controlled and focused the mineral scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin plenty of dusky red fruit laced with graphite although it deserves more complexity and detail to come through ont he finish. That may come with time. It is not up there with the outstanding 2015 but it is still extremely fine." -Neal Martin

John Gilman: 94 Points

"The 2016 Clos St. Denis is another stellar bottle in the making from this outstanding vintage. The bouquet is pure perfumed and youthfully complex offering up a fine constellation of red plums cherries mustard seed gamebird coffee cedar glorious soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied and vibrant with a sappy core great transparency fine-grained tannins and a very very long reserved and nascently complex finish. This will need a good decade more of bottle age to start to stir but it is going to be a superb wine when it is ready to drink. 2028-2075."

Burghound: 92-95 Points

An exuberantly spicy fresh and ripe nose speaks of red berry fruit liqueur plum anise and clove plus discreet mineral nuances that are set off by enough wood to warrant mentioning. The powerful and sleekly muscular flavors are quite firm yet there is a certain generosity that renders the mouth feel somewhat finer than that of the Clos de la

Vinous: 92-95 Points

Healthy medium red. Pristine aromas of cherry rose petal red licorice and crushed stone. Compellingly savory sharply delineated wine with serious power--even a bit youthfully aggressive for Clos Saint-Denis. Firm acidity and a solid stony underpinning give this wine a seriously penetrating quality with its juicy flavors of crunchy red fruits spices minerals and flavors conveying razor-sharp focus. A real essence of 2016 in its combination of aromatic lift definition and delicacy this compelling Clos Saint-Denis finishes with superb length and thrust. (I will wait to taste the Clos de la Roche in bottle as my sample in January was seriously reduced and in need of a racking.)
