FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe. zarte Randaufhellung. Reife Kirschen und Zwetschken, feine Kräuterwürze, ein Hauch von Feigen und Orangenzesten. Saftig, kraftvoll, elegant, süße Textur, reife Tannine, feines Nugat, bleibt gut haften, zeigt Länge und gutes Reifepotenzial."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 La Couspaude motors out with powerful notes of baked black plums, blueberry compote, and chocolate-covered cherries, leading to an undercurrent of tar, licorice, and iris bulb. Full-bodied, rich, and powerful in the mouth, it has beautifully soft, rounded tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with a provocative lift."
JAMES SUCKLING: "A crunchy and creamy textured wine with blackberry and orange peel character. Open tannins. Medium body. Salty and fruity finish. Nice presence to this."
DECANTER: "Smells intense and ripe on the nose. Bright and fun on the palate, more of a focus on the fruit intensity and clarity than the overall structure with clean and fresh strawberries and raspberries with barely there tannins, just giving a delicate but fine and firm grip to the palate. Really well worked, nicely refined no doubt, juicy and really alive in the glass, but missing some density and texture. However, great for early drinking and lots of enjoyment to be had here. A yield of 30hl/ha."
JEB DUNNUCK: "Another impressive Saint-Emilion is the 2022 Château La Couspaude, which has a terrific perfume of spiced red and black fruits and assorted spicy, dried herb notes. With good overall freshness, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and outstanding length, it should easily wind up being an outstanding wine, and it might even match the brilliant 2018."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Dark in color, the wine is loaded with black cherries, espresso, flowers, herbs, licorice, smoke and chocolate. Rich, lush and ripe, with layers of creamy berries and chocolate, this is going to drink well and offer pleasure, close to, or on release. Drink from 2025-2038."
WEINWISSER: "Verhaltener Beginn, schwarzbeerige Konturen, getrocknete Fliederblüten und Lakritze. Am kompakten Gaumen mit butterweicher Textur, stützender Rasse und sehnigem Körper. Im konzentrierten Finale mit Schlehensaft, dunklem Edelholz und feinkörnigem Extrakt. Mir gefällt dieser neue reine Stil deutlich besser - Bravo! 2028 – 2042."
