2018 La Cabanne, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414443 93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Pure and delicious with crushed berries, flowers and hints of fresh almonds. Medium to full body and very integrated tannins that melt into the wine. Fresh finish. Refined for the vintage. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Château La Cabanne has an exotic bouquet of plums, black cherries, candied violets, and orange peel. Medium to full-bodied, with good acidity and terrific balance, it shows the elegant side to the vintage and will keep for 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 La Cabanne (composed of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc) opens with some cedar/oaky overtones, giving way to a fragrant core of warm black cherries, fresh black plums and blueberry preserves with sparks of spearmint, powdered cinnamon, dried roses and redcurrant jelly. Full-bodied with taut, muscular black and blue fruits, it has a firm line of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Cabanne, picked from 17 September, has a lucid purple hue. The bouquet is well defined with black cherries, Dorset plum and light iodine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, plenty of black fruit laced with truffle and cedar. The alcohol is nicely controlled here (14.10%) and there is impressive persistence. Don’t underestimate this Pomerol. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Decanter

Outer quote mark This has cheerful red fruits, a touch of heat on the attack but there is a lot to enjoy. It’s confident with a silky texture though not quite as balanced as some. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Black-cherry colour. Scented with pure black fruit and vanilla-blueberry sweetness. Some freshness here, and the tannins are dry but layered rather than thick and blocky. Good harmony in a vintage of extremes. 16/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

89-91 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The La Cabanne is a succulent, racy Pomerol that will drink well right out of the gate. Pretty floral and mint top notes add nuance to a core of succulent red cherry/raspberry fruit. Medium in body, with lovely perfume, La Cabanne is absolutely delicious." (4/2019)
