The 2016 Chateau La Garde is perhaps the best ever. The inky-black robe presents as a deep and substantial Pessac-Leognan. Nose is a deep cassis and blueberry with a hint of pepper. Wonderful. The entry is blackberry and vanilla, with a smooth promise of delivery in about five years. Best ever from this property. 92
