Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc

One of Bordeaux's most popular second labels and on top form in recent vintages.
The 2022 blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot (none was used for the grand vin) and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Fully ripe fruits, smoky and creamy character with charred raspberry and cassis, violet-edged, pencil lead, bitter chocolate, cocoa dust. An impressive wine, tannins close in a little tightly on the finish, with dried rosemary and black pepper spicy translating the heat of the vintage. 93 Jane Anson.

The density of fruit is serious with blackcurrants, black berries, crushed stone and coffee beans. Yet it’s not heavy and overdone. The palate is full and rich, but also agile and weightless, with tannins that are spread-out and pretty. 95-96 James Suckling.

Like a number of second wines from the best classified growths, the 2022 Resèrve de la Comtesse shares much of the personality of the grand vin this year, delivering aromas of blackberries, violets and exotic spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy palate with a rich core of fruit framed by powdery tannins.
91-93 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
