James SucklingImpressive depth and rather polished dry tannins for this humble appellation, then quite a bold, long finish. Already very attractive, but no hurry to drink this.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 La Cour d'Argent felt a little top-heavy on the nose: punchy kirsch and redcurrant jam aromas shrouded with alcohol at the moment. The palate is sweet on the entry, touches of cocoa sprinkled over the red fruit, but missing some freshness on the finish.
