Critic reviews
"The 2022 La Garde has an elegant and fresh bouquet with aromas of cassis, blueberry, raspberry, spices and violet. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is round and seamless with velvety tannins, a concentrated texture and a long and penetrating finish with hints of oak and a firm, tannic sensation. It's a blend of 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Sauvignon."
Yohan Castaing, April 2023, RobertParker.com

"The 2022 La Garde demands some coaxing from the glass: blackberry and wild strawberry fruit, pressed iris flower and light dark chocolate notes. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, leaning slightly more toward the herbaceous style of 2022, but with freshness and vitality throughout. Fine."
Neal Martin, April 2023, Vinous.com

"The 2022 La Garde opens with a burst of dark fruit, gravel, incense, tobacco, licorice, dried herbs and menthol. Even with all of its intensity, La Garde has a feeling of transparency that is impossible to miss."
Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Vinous.com

"A big year at La Garde, with new cellar, new label and new consultant in Professor Axel Marchal. Captures a charming freshness and nuanced fruit style that is not easy in the vintage. Slate texture, with ripe berry fruits and a kick of lemongrass, sage and white pepper on the finish, along with smoked sandalwood spice. Reduced percentage of first wine from 60% to 40%."
