2018 Haut-Marbuzet, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414891 95-96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A great Haut-Marbuzet with fantastic concentration, yet firm and framed with polished tannins. Harmonious and driven. One to watch. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe, spicy and with a firm structure to sustain it, this wine is packed with acidity and bright black currant flavor. This well-made wine will certainly age well. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the hidden jewels of the vintage, the 2018 Haut-Marbuzet is absolutely gorgeous. Pliant and deep in the glass, with terrific persistence, the 2018 has so much to offer. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, dried flowers and mint add layers of nuance, but it is the wine's balance that is most impressive. In 2018 Haut-Marbuzet has an extra kick of flavor intensity, not to mention tremendous character, with none of the quirky edges that have at times characterized this wine in the past. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Haut-Marbuzet is deep garnet-purple colored, giving up spices, florals and chocolate with baked berries, plum preserves and cassis. The palate is full-bodied, firm, rich and spicy, finishing long. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a little more old-school than some, as is often the case with this estate. It doesn't give too many nods to the prevailing winds and has loyal supporters because of it. What this translates into in 2018 is an austere wine with black fruits and pretty firm tannins that hang around on the finish, making it a little tough to push through but pretty clear that it will age well. It reflects the intensity and concentration that was possible in the vintage but maintains a nice level of freshness too. Good quality. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040 (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
