En Primeur 2019 New Releases of the Day

by The BI Team

 

As the week comes to a close, check out some highlighted new releases.

La Mondotte

£1354 /12 IB

‘’Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 La Mondotte needs a little coaxing before bursting onto the scene with flamboyant scents of plum pudding, blueberry compote, blackberry pie and red roses. Further swirling reveals provocative, emerging notes of sandalwood, cracked black pepper, baker's chocolate, unsmoked cigars and crushed rocks plus a waft of black truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate is an exercise in poise and sophistication, featuring the most exquisitely ripe, velvety tannins and amazing freshness, beautifully countering the intense blue and black fruit layers, finishing with epic length and loads of mineral sparks. Breathtaking!’’

97-99 -  Lisa Perrotti-Brown

 

Clos du Marquis

£409 / 12 IB

‘’The 2019 Clos du Marquis is a bold, luscious Saint-Julien with plenty of up-front appeal to match its mid-weight structure. Blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice, dark, spice and lavender add to a feeling of darkness. This easygoing Saint-Julien offers plenty of immediacy. The tannins are present, but they are also nicely enrobed by the fruit.’’

91-93 pts - Antonio Galloni

 

 

Clos l’Eglise

£649 /12 IB

‘’Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos l'Eglise slowly unfurls to reveal wonderfully fragrant scents of red roses, candied violets, Sichuan pepper, hoisin and garrigue over a core of blackberry preserves, stewed plum and spice cake with a waft of cast-iron pan. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with a well-knit backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the fragrant layers, finishing long and mineral laced.’’

93-95 pts -  Lisa Perrotti-Brown

 

La Tour Blanche

£348 / 12 IB

‘’A tight, subtle new Sauternes with sliced apples, cooked pears and dried peaches. Lots of spices. It’s medium-to full-bodied, vivid and energetic. A blend of 90% semillon, 9.5% sauvignon blanc and 0.5% muscadelle.’’

92-93 pts - James Suckling
