Decanter, 93 Points 

"An impressive, floral-scented 2018 redolent of violets and peonies. It reveals gorgeous dark fruits after some aeration, and lots of freshness and finesse. Its lacy mouthfeel already makes it a pleasure to drink." 

Vinous, 93 Points 

"The 2018 Les Poyeux offers up a rich, sweet, black-fruited style, which may be more of a reflection of the vintage than the site.  It’s a lengthy expression with ripe plum, black cherry, a dash of black olive and vanillin signatures of oak maturation.  While Les Poyeux tends to be an elegant, delicate style, this is a mouthful, with lots of structure and a long-scented tea-leaf and plum-like finish.  While this will be released in early 2024, I would suggest waiting for another two to three years before approaching." 

About the Producer: 

"One collector described an appointment at Clos Rougeard as “harder to get than an audience with the Pope,” and it goes without saying at this point that they are considered the greatest expressions of the Cabernet Franc grape made anywhere in the world. Finessed, perfumed, incredibly ageworthy…these wines have it all. 

While intense and unabashedly tannic in their youth, the structure of the wines at Clos Rougeard allows them to go the distance, which Nadi and Charly enthusiastically cellar for future generations to enjoy."
