|93 FALSTAFF: ""Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, dezenter Ockerrand. Reife Kirschen, ein Hauch von Lakritze, kandierte Veilchen, Nauancen von Mandarinenzesten. Saftig, elegant, dunkle Beerenfrucht, reife Tannine, mineralisch, extraktsüßer Abgang, ein vielversprechender Speisenbegleiter mit Reifepotenzial.
90 DECANTER: "Plum and blueberry, a clear gourmet-led wine with cocoa and mocha overtones, highly charged and confident with layers of tannins. On the muscled side, this is a good wine in a specific style. Bruno Lacoste is the new consultant as of this vintage."
94-95 JAMES SUCKLING: "A serious red, offering lots of blackberries and chocolate with a walnut undertone. It’s full-bodied with hazelnuts and spice. Chewy, yet polished."
92-94 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2019 Vieux Maillet is incredibly distinctive and also one of the real under the radar gems in Pomerol. Expressive rose petal and lavender notes add aromatic intensity to the red/purplish berry fruit, with a real sense of tension that gives the wine energy throughout. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, Vieux Maillet is endowed with tremendous personality and class."
