2018 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407915 93-96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The deliciously ripe and juicy red currant, plum and raspberry fruit is well-knit, revealing hints of tobacco, singed chestnut and cast iron in the background. Shows lots of range and drive, with serious grip on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very dense and layered young wine with lots of fruit and density. Yet, it remains agile and fresh, because of the bright acidity and fresh finish. Potent. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Château Bourgneuf is, as always, a richer, powerful Pomerol from the Moueix team. Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from gravelly, iron-rich soils (there's some clay as well), its deep purple color is followed by lots of cassis, spicy oak, graphite, and earthy minerality. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannins and a terrific mid-palate, it's a brilliant Pomerol in the making. Tasted twice. 92-94+ Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Bourgneuf has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with vibrant kirsch, blackberry pie and crushed plums notions followed by hints of chargrilled meats, fertile loam, truffles and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has an intense core of black fruits and savory layers, framed by rounded tannins and loads of freshness, finishing on a meaty note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Bourgneuf has a very satisfying bouquet with neatly defined blackberry, raspberry and strawberry fruit laced with black truffle and light sous-bois aromas. The use of new oak is very prudent here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fresh and focused with a lively, quite tensile and linear finish. Allow it three to five years just to settle in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

I really like this wine in 2018. It is not as rustic as in recent past vintages. Menthol, mint aromas. Dense wine. Plenty of spicy, minty flavors. Almost new wve, but finely balanced. Sweet on the palate. Lovely.
