JAMES SUCKLING: "A traditional wine with a pretty core of fruit and tannins. Firm and juicy. Black berry, black truffle and graphite character."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "The 2022 Haut Maillet bursts with aromas of sweet blackberries, cherries and petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that's supple and giving."
JEB DUNNUCK: "From a vineyard near Bon Pasteur, the 2022 Château Haut-Maillet is a ripe, concentrated, yet rather foursquare wine with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of plums, black cherries, melted chocolate, and earth. It could use more elegance, but it certainly brings the fruit and texture."
