Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château La Violette 2014 usually has a rambunctious, over-the-top nose that coats your senses in glycerin...but not this year. This year the La Violette is showing more restraint and composure, though the lavish black cherries and cassis notes remain in place. They are just put on a leash. The palate is full-bodied with a citrus-fresh opening, very fine tannin, great depth and a very elegant finish. You know, tasted blind I would never guess this to be La Violette. The bottom line is that it is very suave and stylish, the kind of Pomerol attired in a velvet crush tuxedo.
