  2. Château Marjosse Bordeaux Rouge

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#52269

    RP90+90–92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Apr 2019
    The 2018 Marjosse is made up of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc with a splash of old Malbec. Big old barrels were used for 25% of the crop. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with a compelling nose of baking spices, raspberry pie, warm red and black currants, rose hip tea and fragrant earth with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate is filled with fragrant red and black fruit, framed by great freshness and soft, supple tannins, finishing on a floral note.

    The 2018 Marjosse offers lovely black currant and raspberry aromas, fresh and vibrant in the glass; plum jam and black olive notes emerge with time. The palate is underpinned by fine tannins, good substance and a crisp, cedar-tinged finish that is a pure joy. A must-buy from Pierre Lurton’s home estate.

  3. Château Laffitte Carcasset

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55660

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Laffitte-Carcasset is gorgeous, just as it was from barrel. This mid-weight Saint-Estèphe impresses with its nuance and delineation. Bright red fruit, iron, menthol, anise, cedar and rose petal lend uncommon complexity, while fine grained tannins give the wine proportion and drive. This polished, under the radar gem is a real delight. Laffitte-Carcasset is an especially delicate wine for the appellation.
    WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2021
    The estate on the plateau of Saint-Estèphe is well situated to produce this rich, full-bodied wine. Broad tannins give the dry core essential for aging. They are balanced by black-currant fruits from the 50% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. It will age well; drink from 2025.

  5. Clos du Roy Fronsac

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#54805

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, March 3, 2021
    Blackberry, currant and chili with some walnut on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins with a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Just a hint of smoke at the end. Drink after 2024.
    RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Apr 2019
    The 2018 Clos du Roy is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers profound baked plums, boysenberry and cassis notes with touches of chocolate box, underbrush and truffles. Medium to full-bodied and packed with generous black fruits, it has a velvety texture and lively line, finishing savory.
    VN90+90+ pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Clos du Roy is a real pleasure to taste. Rich and flamboyant, the 2018 possesses tremendous depth as well as character. Succulent red fruit, blood orange, mint, spice, leather and new oak all mesh together. Readers will find a Fronsac of real substance and power. The 2018 is impressive. I won’t be at all surprised if it ages well.
    JD8888 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/11/2021
    A solid, rich, mouth-filling effort, the 2018 Clos Du Roy gives up plenty of darker currants and black cherry fruits as well as medium to full body, a round, mouth-filling, chewy texture, ripe tannins, and a good finish. Drink this pleasure-bent, flavorful 2018 over the coming 7–8 years.

    Cru Bourgeois Supérieur
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55243

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Peyrabon is fulfilling its promise from barrel. It has a well-defined and focused bouquet of lively blackberry and briary scents, touches of cedar and tobacco coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit and a fine lattice of tannins that impress, considering this is a Bordeaux Supérieur with excellent length. Bon vin!

  8. Château Haut-Brisson

    Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53316

    JD92+92–95 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - May 1, 2019
    The deep, saturated purple/plum-colored 2018 Château Haut Brisson checks in as a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from a 22-hectare vineyard of fine gravelly and quartz-rich soils sitting on top of deep clay. Still aging in 35% new French oak, this rich, medium to full-bodied Saint-Émilion offers a nicely layered and beautifully balanced style as well as complex notes of blue and black fruits, spice box, blood orange, and violets. It has an exotic edge, ample mid-palate depth, and the sexy yet pure style of the vintage. It’s a smoking good Saint-Émilion to drink any time over the coming two decades. Tasted twice.
    RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Apr 2019
    The 2018 Haut-Brisson comes from Vignonet and Monbousquet in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse, from the lieu-dit Laroque. It is blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and has 14.6% alcohol. It is aging in 35% new, 35% one-year-old and 30% two-year-old barrels for an anticipated 18 months. It has a deep garnet-purple color and comes charging out of the glass with baked black cherries, warm blueberries and preserved plums with touches of pencil shavings, kirsch and chargrilled meat plus a waft of Indian spices. Full-bodied, the generously fruited palate has a lovely plush texture and just enough freshness, finishing with a menthol lift.
    VN90+90–93 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2019
    The 2018 Haut Brisson is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Radiant and plush, with striking fruit density, the 2018 captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, dried flowers and menthol build in a creamy, sensual Saint-Émilion loaded with near and medium-term appeal. Haut Brisson is especially fine in 2018. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with new oak at 35%. Tasted three times.
