Wine rated (guide 2016) : 15,5/20 (Très bon)

About this wine : Un soupçon de réglisse, une pointe de macis et de tonka, un vin qui prend le parti d'un élevage soigné mais encore marqué. Il faudra l'attendre, la densité de fruit et la texture le permettront.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Sélectionné (Nous rappelons que ce guide est un palmarès et qu'à ce titre, tous les domaines qui y figurent, même sans étoile, représentent, à nos yeux, l'excellence de la production française.)

About the vineyard : Château Penin demeure l’une des belles références en appellation Bordeaux et Bordeaux supérieur. Si les vins ont connu ces dernières années une légère baisse de qualité, les cuvées dans le millésime 2014 renouent avec davantage de concentration. Les tanins sont mieux intégrés et offrent un style mieux défini. On retrouve un esprit plus civilisé avec une trame davantage marquée par le terroir de calcaire et de graves. Dommage que nous n'ayons pas eu plus de 2016 pour constater l'évolution.
