"The 2016 Teyssier has turned out beautifully. Soft, floral and silky, the 2016 Teyssier is a terrific introduction to the vintage. Sweet dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and spice are nicely lifted in this suave, supple Saint-Émilion. Bright, floral notes appear on the finish to add perfume and lift. The 2016 is even more impressive than it was from barrel. Even better, it is one of the more modestly priced Saint-Émilions in the market, with a level of production that also makes it relatively easy to source. Once again, Jonathan Maltus and his team have done a fabulous job with their most visible wine. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next handful of years." 91/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous
"The 2016 Teyssier is made up of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in 25% new French oak. It has a medium garnet-purple color and reveals baked plums, warm blackberries and black cherry compote notes with touches of garrigue, pencil lead and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives up loads of fresh, vibrant black fruits with a velvety texture and great freshness, finishing long with plenty of earthy sparks." 91/100, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
Teyssier is a solid performer, gracing the 1st class lounges of several airlines, the choice of a Grand Prix or two, and recommended by critics like The Wall Street Journal's Will Lyons and Master of Wine Tim Atkin.
It's also one of our key picks and best value reds, great for impressing at dinner parties.
