Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the château, the 2006 La Violette was the maiden vintage from the late Catherine Père-Vergé. It has a slightly more youthful bouquet than the 2006 Le Gay, although in some ways it is less interesting. That said, there are enjoyable leather and Morrocan spice aromas to be enjoyed. It just feels a tad static in comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with candied fruit on the entry, notes of licorice and melted tar. Interestingly, the bottle shown at Farr Vintners' blind tasting performed better than the one at the property (and incidentally, instantly nailed as La Violette thanks to its plumpness and polished sheen.) This demonstrated more complexity on the nose with a light marine influence. I would drink this over the next decade. Tasted April 2016.
