Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2014 Grand Cru Mambourg is deep, intense and concentrated on the smoky nose that gives more ripe and even tropical fruit aromas compared to the 2013. There are crushed-stone and concentrated-lemon aromas, along with herbal and crushed-stone flavors. The attack on the palate is quite racy and fresh, before the creaminess and richness take over. However, after minutes in the glass, the wine gains purity and complexity and develops a remarkable finesse. It is fresh and stony, but bigger than 2013, with broader shoulders and fine tannins that remind me almost of fine Pinot Noir. The finish is concentrated, firmly structured and very long. This is a big, really full-bodied and powerful Mambourg that needs some years to develop. It has great potential and is already tastable in the finish, leaner and fresher than the richness and density of the first sip let you think. The 2014 was picked on the first day of the harvest and not affected by drosophila.
