Vinous – Neil Martin – Score 92/100
The 2016 Soutard has a ripe, showy bouquet, one of the few more like 2015 than 2016, featuring red plum and kirsch and revealing touches of Moroccan spice with time. The medium-bodied palate is smooth-textured and open, offering supple tannin, plush red cherries and wild strawberry fruit. Hints of vanilla emerge toward the finish. Lovely.
Robert Parker The wine Advocate – Score 91-93/100
The 2016 Soutard has a tightly wound blackberry and marine-tinged bouquet, touches of iodine infusing the fruit, perhaps a little more backward than recent vintages have shown at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, good acidity, quite fresh with a touch of orange sorbet that brightens up the pretty finish. Soutard has been threatening to make a wine as good as this! Recommended.
