Wonderful vintage, with an exceptional maturity slow and regular during all his cycle.

Decidedly the vintage of the decade at Biston-Brillette !
Deep and dark color. Good substance dense and Thick. Flowery nose, fresh, very fine, precise and delicate. Long texture, intense, structured and straight. Intense fruity finish with a nice touch of vanilla toasted. A lot of charm and a great potential. Moreover this wine should last for 1 or 2 more years. Exceptional  success. Ageing 12/20 years   

Guide HUBERT 2014
Nice smell developing aromas of black fruit, smoky and spicy touches, palate well balanced, fleshy, fruity with good length, beautiful freshness and potential.

Gilbert & Gaillard note 89/100
Deep crimson. Elegant nose of fresh fruits layered over subtle spicy oak. The palate is harmonious, melted and driven by fruit and spice on entry. The mid-palate and finish are firmer and intimate a certain cellaring potential.

Guide des meilleurs vins à moins de 20 euros 2014, RVF
Fleshy palate, dense, but well-balanced with delicate finish. Good classical style for this sure value of the appellation.

Wine Advocate, Rating 90
Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Médoc, this wine shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum end black currants. It hits the palate with medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty.

Decanter, February 2013 score 16.75
Fresh, Cabernet-dominated black fruits nose with touches of leather showing some evolution. Charming palate of summer fruits compote and creamy finish. 2013-2022.

Guide petit futé Gironde 2012
Garnet-red colour, black reflections. Complex smell, charmer and powerfull ; touches of woody vanilla, smoky, coffee, final with ripe red fruits. Concentrated and fleshy palate, tasty, with crunchy fruits and silky tannins. Beautiful quality

Saftig und fruchtig, gut eingebundenes Holz, mittellang, geschmeidiges, kaum alkoholisches Finale; zuverlässig. 2018 bis 2026.

Le Point, mai 2010
Pink, raspberry, round palate, supple, mellow, delicate, lovely silky tannins, looks like a Margaux.
