Tasting Note:

The charismatic Bruno Borie described 2018 as 'bouleversant'. This is a typically romantic French word that has no direct translation into English. It means that feeling when one is stopped in the street by the beauty of a stranger - drop dead gorgeous if you like. Grapes were harvested 120 days after flowering, so the grapes benefitted from extended hang time. The berries were 10-15% smaller than normal, which resulted in the ripest ever Cabernets seen at this Chateau. Fragrant, polished, with lots of sweet dark fruit, Chambord and glossy high-toned fruit. This is big and bold with a dense tannic core, but it remains vibrant and fresh - lots of material.
