The 2021 La Violette has a typically precocious bouquet with violet-tinged blackberry and cassis fruit. The oak is nicely integrated and it feels less ostentatious than previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins and a good grip. This is very pure with a dash of black pepper infusing the melange of black and blue fruit. There is plenty of substance on the finish that should ensure this Pomerol will age well in the bottle. ~93-95 Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2021 La Violette has good energy although it also comes across as a bit clenched. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, and mint are nicely delineated. All these needs are a bit more palate depth. ~92-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
