"The 90% Merlot in this wine gives it a densely rich, black-plum and spice character. It is solid, still very young with impressive dark fruits and intense tannins over the acidity. The wine will need time, so don't drink before 2022."
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Chateau Lécuyer, courtesy of Emeric Petit, has an expressive bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry, blood orange and orange sorbet aromas, perhaps here more 2015 in style than 2016? The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin. There is good grip in the mouth, the foundation of a masculine and structured Pomerol that will need four or five years in bottle. Surly at the moment, for sure, yet with an appealing, almost aloof personality that keeps drawing you back. This is very well crafted and possibly one of the best wines from this Pomerol estate."
91 points James Suckling
"Plenty of ripe-plum and baking-spice aromas here, the full, fleshy body nicely balanced by the full, velvety tannins. Good length, if not that complex. A blend of 90 per cent merlot and ten per cent cabernet franc."
"Very dark purplish crimson. Headily perfumed. Very sweet alluring start. Not too forced. Dry finish but not excessively so. Very cool for a Pomerol on the palate but it's all pretty convincingly constructed. Appetising."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Château L’Ecuyer [lay kwē yā] is a tiny estate of only 3 hectares located in the small but prestigious Pomerol appellation. It was originally known as Château de Bourgueneuf, but was re-baptized L’Ecuyer (squire) when the Petit and Cambier family took over the estate in 2004. L’Ecuyer benefits from an exceptional terroir. 1 hectare is located on the summit of the famous Pomerol plateau next to Clos L’Eglise, Château Clinet and Châ-teau Rouget. The other 2 hectares are located in the heart of Pomerol.
