James Suckling gave the 2016 La Petite Lune rouge 90 points, saying, “A bold, forward style, with plush, lightly mulled plum, boysenberry and açaí berry flavors pumping along, backed by light apple and anise accents that add detail through the finish. Big, but has the energy for balance. Best from 2021 through 2028.” And Andy Howard, of Decanter, called it “a great-value Bordeaux blend forged out of an alliance between Olivier Bernard and Stéphane Derenoncourt. With the luxurious texture of the 2016 vintage behind it, this has plenty of dark red and black currant notes, a touch of herbs and lead pencil to finish, all carried on a wave of silky tannins. Some good ageing potential as well.” He gave it to 2025. I purchased a case for drinking over the next six or seven years. A great wine, especially for the price. Op[en it and decant; let it sit for 12 hours or so. Over open it and let it sit there (no decantation) for 24 hours. I paid $9.98 per bottle. At that price, it will sell out quickly.
