Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Clos Romanile has a very ripe nose with mulberry, red plum, violet and marmalade scents that are opulent and extrovert. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins, firm in terms of grip with a saline, quite spicy finish that I find appealing. Though the nose is rather oppressive at present, the palate does suggest there is sufficient freshness to pull through with bottle age. So afford this Saint-Émilion 5 or 6 years in bottle to soften those tannins." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (November, 2019), Ratings: 90-92, Drink: 2024-2038

"Rich, ripe and modern. Suave attack but fresh and firmly structured. Needs time to open." - Decanter Magazine

"This is dense and beautiful with dark berries, tar and black tea. Full-bodied, very velvety textured and a long and fresh finish." - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Ratings: 92-93

"With depth of color, the medium-bodied wine moves with a core of smoke, licorice and juicy plums. Round in texture with a black plum and espresso finish, give it a bit of time in the cellar to flesh out." - Jeff Leve, thewinecellarinsider.com, Ratings: 91
