Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-93 (2019 January)

Firm reduction dominates the fruit today. Otherwise, and as is usually the case, this is easily the biggest and most powerful wine in the range among the Mortet 1ers with its overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the textured, youthfully austere and very firmly structured finish. This is certainly impressive and especially so for the vintage though I find it somewhat more rustic than usual.
