...shows substance and character with very fine tannins that last for minutes.
...skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery scents of warm raspberries, black cherries and ripe blackberries plus hints of red roses, menthol, dark chocolate and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling fresh, crunchy fruit with beautifully ripe, finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed. Impressive!
...a deep, brooding wine with a compelling interplay of dense fruit and supporting structure. Blueberry jam, savory herbs, lavender, mint, spice and gravel jump from the glass in this potent, virile Saint-Émilion.
...an exotic bouquet of blue fruits, spring flowers, and lavender that gives way to a soft, approachable 2018 that has sweet fruit, good purity, and supple tannins...has solid purity of fruit and is certainly a very good, possibly outstanding Saint-Émilion.
