96 points James Suckling
"Lots of blueberry and blackberry with crushed-stone and limestone undertones. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that are wonderfully polished." (5/2021)

"Based on 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Château Poesia has a wonderful purity and freshness in its ripe blue fruits, tobacco, cedar, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, it has good acidity, ultra-fine tannins, beautiful overall balance, and just a classy, seamless, incredibly elegant profile. It's another gorgeous wine from this incredible team."
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Revealing a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Poesia bursts with flamboyant notions of stewed black plums, mulberries and juicy blackberries, plus hints of tar, licorice, potpourri and dried mulberries with a waft of incense. The medium to full-bodied palate is charged with a racy backbone of freshness, delivering layers of dried berries and exotic spices with a plush texture, finishing long and perfumed."
"Same owners as Barde-Haut on slightly cooler clay-limestone soils, the tannins are a little angular, but there is a ton of liquorice, damson and violet notes. It is poised even though broad-shouldered. 60% new oak."
