One of the under-the-radar gems of Saint-Émilion, the 2016 Haut-Segottes is once again terrific. Ripe, sumptuous and expressive, it captures the sexiness of the vintage. Floral and red-toned flavors abound in a pliant, supple Saint-Émilion that will offer considerable pleasure pretty much upon release. The significant presence of Cabernet Franc adds brightness, lift and nuance. Hints of sweet tobacco and rose petal linger. Two thousand sixteen is a very promising vintage for Haut-Segottes.

A bit stolid, as the toasty vanilla and tobacco frame holds sway over a core of plum fruit, ending with a slightly extracted feel. Drink now through 2021. 3,300 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
