James Suckling: 92-93/100
A fine and linear tannin structure that gives finesse and focus to the wine. Medium-bodied with fresh and bright fruit and a silky finish. Shows slightly more finesse than in the past. A blend of 64% merlot, 26% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 91-93/100
The 2023 G d’Estournel is a seriously beautiful wine. Dark, layered and super-expressive, the 2023 has so much to offer. An explosion of red/purplish fruit, spice, rose petal, lavender and mocha makes a strong opening impression. This is an especially bold, fruit-forward vintage for the G, perhaps because of the inclusion of recently acquired parcels planted on clay/limestone soils. The 2023 is all about harmony, and there is plenty of that.

Jane Anson: 90/100
A serious G d'Estournel to celebrate its 20th vintage, well balanced, plenty of spice alongside the blueberry fruits. A touch soft through the mid palate, but great freshness and juice. An extra 4ha of vines to G over the past few years, with more clay and limestone, to help keep acidity in increasingly hot summers, taking it to around 25ha of vines. 45hl/h yield, harvet September 13 to October 2, 20% new oak for ageing. In organic conversion.
