2018 Poesia, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1408014 95-96 points James Suckling

 This is a fantastic wine from this estate with so much blackberry, blueberry and mineral character. Full-bodied and extremely polished. The texture and finesse are great, but then it takes off. Greatest ever.  (4/2019)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

 More red fruits emerge from the 2018 Poesia, which has beautiful limestone character in its black raspberry and cassis fruit, graphite, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant, yet also powerful and concentrated, it's going to evolve positively for 4-5 years and keep for two decades or more. 94-96+  (5/2019)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This is a final blend composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, with the Merlot harvested October 3-8 and the Cabernet Franc harvested on October 9. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Poesia opens with notes of baked black cherries, mocha, spice cake, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries with nuances of dried roses, aniseed, candied violets and Christmas cake plus a waft of molten licorice. Full-bodied, rich and packed with red and black fruit layers, it has a solid structure of firm, finely grained tannins and compelling freshness, finishing very long and layered. (LPB)  (4/2019)

91-94 points Vinous

 Poesia is terrific in 2018. An exotic mélange of dark red cherry, plum, spice, leather and cedar envelops the palate. A wine of density, power and textural resonance, the 2018 is shaping up to be one of the under the radar gems of the vintage. Quite frankly, I am blown away by the wine's balance at this admittedly very early stage. The 2018 might be the best Poesia yet. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. (AG)  (4/2019)

91 points Decanter

 The powerful soils this wine is sourced from, on the west side of the appellation near Peby Faugères, give grip and concentration through the palate. It's an extremely rich and deeply coloured wine, and you can feel the ease with which everything was extracted. It has a clear personality of tight, dark cassis fruits and is one for those with patience and who like a little severity in their young wines. Harvested 3-8 October. (JA)  (3/2019)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Poesia was picked from 21 September. It offers inky black cherries and blueberry fruit on the nose with violet aromas, hints of iodine developing with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, fine acidity, plenty of blackberry and dark plum fruit with a touch of white pepper and bay leaf towards the spicy finish. Matured in 80% new oak, this is a delightful Poesia to drink over the next five to six years, probably longer." (11/2019)
