James Suckling, 92-93 Points 

"Very vivid and juicy with lovely fruit and acidity that gives this wine presence and texture. Much better than the 2015." 

Decanter, 91 Points 

"Owned by brothers Ludovic and Julien Meffre, this wine is a deep purple colour with extremely aromatic juice, delivering the triumvirate of what you want in a primeur wine - fruit, freshness and genuine astringency on the tannins. The black cherry and cassis fruit is inevitably held back a little at this stage, but there is potential for bedding down during ageing, making this a very promising wine. Good St-Julien classicism on display here. 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Merlot with 12 months in 40% new oak. Christophe Olliver of the Dubourdieu group is consulting oenologist here. A wine to watch, these vines once formed part of the Saint Pierre estate." 

Vinous, 90 Points 

"A sleeper in this vintage, the 2016 du Glana is absolutely gorgeous.  Supple and resonant on the palate, with terrific depth and tons of character, the 2016 is a real overachiever.  Juicy red cherry, plum, lavender and sweet spice all flesh out in this succulent, hugely delicious Saint-Julien.  Don’t miss it." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
