2018 Puy-Blanquet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414897 92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Deeply colored, the 2018 Château Puy-Blanquet checks in as 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from a 20-hectare parcel of clay and limestone soils. Beautifully ripe and sexy, with a massive bouquet of blackcurrants, macerated black cherries, and smoked earth, it's full-bodied, opulent, and layered on the palate, with serious fruit. This brilliant wine will be approachable in its youth yet also evolve gracefully for 15 years or more. It should also be an incredible value. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A red with lots of richness and density and flavor. Full body, plenty of round tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

90-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Puy-Blanquet is a rich, creamy and sensual wine with tremendous near and medium term appeal. In 2018, Puy-Blanquet is especially lush, almost shockingly so, for a Saint-Émilion that is usually quite classic in feel. Inky red and purplish berry fruit, spice, rose petal and mint build as this silky, pliant Saint-Émilion shows off its racy, inviting personality. Don't miss it. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Warm and direct, with plum and raspberry confiture notes gliding along, infused with a hint of toasted vanilla. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Fran and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Puy-Blanquet gives up notes of warm red and black cherries, mulberries and fruitcake with hints of baking spices, fallen leaves and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tautly structured with firm, chewy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and lively. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

This property has been on a roll for the last three years. Very aromatic with blackberries and boysenberries on the nose. Some black licorice flavors and a fine lingering finish. A bit of tannin at the back. Fine value.
Drink from 2022 to 2030
