An extremely highly-rated Pomerol, the Lafite-owned L’Evangile, has been released this morning at GBP 2200. This is another 2018 that flirts with perfection in the eyes of both Lisa Perrotti-Brown (97-99pts “lovely, ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Beautiful.”) and James Suckling (98-99pts “A very plush and exciting L’Evangile with polished, velvety tannins that set this up to be a classic.”)
L'Evangile was followed by another iconic pomerol in the form of L'Eglise Clinet which was released this morning at GBP 2616. L’Eglise Clinet produces some of the most captivating wine from the Right Bank. They are unashamedly rich and concentrated, but always in perfect balance and harmony with some of the finest, most precise tannins you will find anywhere in Bordeaux; it has slowly gained a legion of followers who will accept no substitute.
Unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage, the incredible 2018 Ausone, has been released this morning at GBP 6900. Lisa Perrotti-Brown gave it the potential for a perfect score and applauded its 'epic length and heart-stopping beauty'. This wine has now sold out.
