About the Wine
Only a tiny amount of this wine is made from a particularly valuable plot in Pomerol. In 2015, only 350 cases were produced. This is a phenomenal, stunning wine and will be the envy of all your friends...if you can get a bottle.
Very attractive and vibrant purple berries, dark cherries, blueberries, fresh earth and violets on the nose. This is a pretty wine with real purpose. The palate delivers a sleeve of perfectly ripe dark-plum and blueberry flavors and makes a deep-set impression via succulent, lustrous tannins that roll smooth and deep. Fresh, earthy finish. Superb wine. Try from 2024. ~98 JS
I loved the 2015 La Violette from barrel and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. Sporting a deep purple color as well as sensational notes of violets, black currants, toasty oak, and graphite, this awesome 2015 hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, sexy texture, no hard edges and fine, fine tannin. It’s the purity of fruit that really sets this gem apart and despite carrying serious amounts of richness and depth, it glides across the palate and is almost weightless. Give this heavenly little Garage wine 4-5 years of cellaring, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following two decades. ~97 J. Dunnuck
The 2015 La Violette is superb. Silky and expressive, with fabulous aromatic presence, La Violette is all finesse. Inky blue/purplish fruit tones open into hints of sweet tobacco, new leather and licorice. The 2015 is at once supple and also light on its feet, with superb balance and an inviting personality that will be virtually impossible to resist for those lucky enough to own a few bottles. ~96 VM
The 2015 La Violette is medium to deep garnet-purple with fragrant scents of potpourri, dried lavender, bouquet garni and cigar boxes over a core of warm plums, blueberry compote and cassis plus a waft of underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth and packed with black fruit and spice layers, it's framed with a firm yet velvety structure and oodles of freshness, finishing long. 2020 - 2042 ~96WA
