Today sees the final release from a trio of impeccable wines made by Nicolas Thienpont* in 2018, the "seamless and sexy" 99-100pt. Beausejour Duffau. Always impressive and hard to resist even from barrel, the 2018 comes from one of the hottest estates in St Emilion and will age gracefully for decades.

 

We are also delighted to offer the 2018 vintage of one of the legends of the Left Bank, Chateau Lynch Bages. One of the best-known Medoc estates, since 1973 it has been owned by Jean-Michel Cazes and is now run by his son, Jean-Charles. The 2018 was one of the stand out wines from Pauillac, which will have a long drinking window.

 

Also released today are the top estates in the von Neipperg stable, a beguiling 95-98pt. Canon La Gaffeliere and the 96-99pt. La Mondotte that is "one of the highlights in this vintage."

 

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!

*Nicolas Thienpont's 2018 Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse are both available on our website.

 
 
 

2018 Chateau Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse (Saint Emilion)

GVWM Standout Mid-Range Wine

 

A muscular and powerful young wine with incredible depth and power. Full-bodied, layered and dense. Flexes its muscle with every sip, yet there's agility and precision to it at the same time. Blueberries, salt, white pepper and stone. Purple fruit. Amazing depth. - James Suckling

 

Dazzling...an especially refined Beausejour. This is a tremendous showing. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

2018 Chateau Lynch Bages (Pauillac)
 

This is incredibly powerful and structured with so much tannin backbone and length, yet it's cool and fresh with a compact palate and great length. Muscular. - James Suckling

2018 Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere (Saint Emilion)

 

A bright, mineral-driven style in the making, with the chalky aspect leading the way, quickly followed by a racy stream of red currant, raspberry and cherry coulis flavors. Has the grip of the vintage, but this is piercingly focused in feel. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

 

The 2018 Canon La Gaffeliere is extraordinary...sumptuous...beguiling. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
