Notes "Ripe and rounded in feel, with polished plum and cassis notes lined with subtle savory and iron steaks that extend through the pure, sleek finish. Not big, but fresh and balanced. Drink now through 2027. 12,500 cases made." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"The 2016 Haut-Vigneau is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm plums, black cherries and mulberries with a baking spice undercurrent. Medium-bodied, soft and juicy, it delivers a spicy finish." (Wine Advocate) "The 2016 Haut-Vigneau, which is overseen by Eric Perrin of Carbonnieux, has a tightly knit blackberry and black truffle bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm, grippy tannin, but there is plenty of gorgeous pure black fruit with veins of white pepper and cassis toward the almost Saint-Émilion-like finish." (Neal Martin, Vinous)
