Critical Acclaim

JD89+ Jeb Dunnuck May 1, 2019

"Made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Château La Prade comes from more limestone soils in the Francs region of the Côtes de Bordeaux. The property was purchased by Nicolas Thienpont in 2000, and it lies on a limestone plateau, covering around seven hectares. It offers a classy, balanced, yet structured and fresh style that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring. Red plums, black cherries, licorice, and scorched earth all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant red that’s going to be a terrific value." (89–91 pts.)

RP91+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 23rd Apr 2019

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 La Prade delivers pronounced baked cherries, mulberries and blackberry pie scents with nuances of rose hip tea, iron ore and fragrant earth. Full-bodied and richly fruited with loads of earth and floral sparks, it has a plush, velvety frame and provocative lift to the finish." (91–93+ pts.)

JS90+ JamesSuckling.com Thursday, April 11, 2019

"A very accessible, almost delicate young red with blackberries and blueberries and some black-olive character. Medium body, light tannins and a fresh finish." (90–91 pts.)

VN89+ Vinous Apr 2019

"Nicolas Thienpont’s 2018 La Prade is supple, juicy and inviting. Ripe red cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice all run through this racy, super-expressive wine. These limestone-rich soils give a wine with notable energy, tension and aromatic lift, along with an element of tightness that needs time to resolve itself, all quite complementary in this vintage. The blend is 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times." (89–91 pts.)

SP90+ Wine Spectator Web only – 2019

"Quite ripe, with dark plum and boysenberry notes, but this is focused, offering subtle spice and tobacco hints on the finish. Tasty and should be a great value. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 2,208 cases made." (90–93 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
