Awards

Gold Medal: CWWSC 2020– 94/100 James Suckling

"This is a wine to put by for a few years. But it's lovely now too, in its youthful exuberance." Tom Doorley, The Irish Mail on Sunday, 04/04/21

 Tom Doorley - Tom's Bordeaux pick

"Another 2018 which is showing its youth but also drinking nicely - dark purple centre and dark red edges, blackcurrants and vanilla-edged dark fruits with some toasty oak touches. A little firm but with generous ripe fruits to compensate, open and lively. Also watch for Le Conseiller 2015 for €25 which is fruity and lithe with lovely sweet blackberry fruits and good length." Irish Examiner, Leslie Williams, 27/03/21
