After a pause in 2018 releases from Bordeaux last week due to Vinexpo, we are delighted to offer the perennial St. Julien favorite, Chateau Leoville-Barton. In 2018 they made an absolutely brilliant wine - one with a very long future ahead. This is a wine that epitomizes classic 'Left Bank Claret' and in our experience it has triumphed over significantly more expensive wines in blind tastings many times. The '82, '90, '96 and 2000 are magnificent vintages and they all drinking beautifully today, demonstrating why this property has its coveted 2nd Growth status, and why this brilliant Barton is one to stock up on.

 

Also released today from Pauillac is a fantastic Grand Puy Lacoste that impresses us year in and year out at en primeur tastings and is always popular once in bottle and available stateside.

 

Additional releases from this week are listed below.

 

Our 2018 Bordeaux Report is available for reading on our Futures Landing Page which is being updated with new wines daily, and we'll be sending offers on the most compelling wines as they are released...stay tuned!

2018 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste (Pauillac)

GVWM Standout Mid-Range Wine

 

This captures the style of the vintage to a T, with vividly ripe cassis and plum fruit, carried by solidly built but fine-grained structure. Lots of graphite and tobacco accents hang in the background for now. A firmly grounded wine. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
