"The 2016 D'Arsac was showing just a touch of volatility on the nose at first, although my sample addressed that with some rigorous aeration, revealing marine-tinged black fruit laced with blueberry and crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with a vibrant, spicy opening and superb delineation. Very harmonious in the mouth, there is impressive depth and wonderful freshness to this Margaux, delivering great length on the finish. It should be afforded maybe five years to fully subsume that new oak, but it will certainly be worth the wait. Bucking the trend for Margaux wines to have peaked in 2015, this 2016 is leagues above last year's wine. Bravo." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This estate vineyard is full of modern sculptures that are collected by the owner. The wine shows fine, smooth tannins and a dark texture that gives it great long-term potential. It is a beautifully made wine: firm where it needs to be and with fine fruitiness. It will be ready in 2027." -Rated 94, Wine Enthusiast

"This has an attractive balance between rich fruit and fresh acidity that runs through the palate. This is not especially intense, instead very much in a flattering fruit mode. A lovely classic Margaux with some seductive florality, buckets of fresh blackberries and a cappuccino finish." -Rated 90, Decanter
