"The 2014 Reserve de La Comtesse is a delicious second wine. Soft, open-knit and caressing, the 2014 offers striking textural depth to balance its dark red/purplish fruit. Spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice wrap around the juicy, super-expressive finish. A burst of aromatic freshness gives the wine its sense of proportion. The Reserve de La Comtesse is one of Bordeaux's most polished second wines, which, among other things, makes it an ideal red to drink over the next decade or so. The blend is 59 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 41 % Merlot." -Antinio Galloni, Feb 2017

"After a virtual wipe out in 2013 (there was only 6% in the second wine), the Merlot component is back at a more habitual 41% this year. There's more new oak in this sample than there will be in the finished wine, but it's still plushly fruited and smooth with fine-grained but concentrated tannins and a hint of tangerine."
