Neil Martin in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92-94: "The 2016 Badette is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the first time that the latter has been used. This has a lovely bouquet with superb delineation, so vivid and lively with ebullient red cherries mixed with strawberry and subtle cassis notes, the 50% new oak neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with fine, slightly grainy tannin, crisp acidity and a dash of black pepper on the finish. I liked the 2014, I liked the 2015 and guess what? I like the 2016."
