Bordeaux Futures Pre-Sale - Haut Medoc - 90 Pts WA

Item Ships: Sep 30, 2019

Rich purple in colour, which makes you gear up for extracted flavours. But when you taste it, things soften considerably, performing that 2016 trick. This is still a big wine, pumped with brambly autumnal hedgerow fruits. The tannins are a little tighter and stalkier than some through the mid-palate, but even so this has a lot going for it. A medium termer that needs decanting to soften the slightly angular tannins. This is a Dourthe estate, planted to 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot on limestone and clay soils.
Decanter 88 Points

Ratings
Barrel Sample. This is a firm wine, with woody spice and a core of dry tannins. Ample acidity is allied to the delicious, concentrated blackberry fruit. 91-91 Points Wine Enthusiast
