2018 Chateau La Cabanne (750ml) »FUTURES«

Merlot from Pomerol, Bordeaux, France

2018 Chateau La Cabanne

The 2018 Château La Cabanne is another pretty, perfumed, incredibly pure Pomerol with loads of blueberry and cherry fruit as well candied violets, spice, and leafy herbs. I love its purity, it has great tannins, a layered, deep mid-palate, and an outstanding finish. It's great today, in a youthful, vibrant fashion, yet will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 10-15 years. It's a gorgeous wine and one of the finest I've tasted from this address, surpassing even the 2016.

The 2018 La Cabanne takes a few minutes to find its footing. It then reveals attractive blackberry, briary and light black truffle scents; with further aeration, more red fruit manifests. The palate is well balanced, lithe and pliant with supple tannins and well-integrated oak. Lovely orange pith notes develop toward the harmonious finish, which feels long and tender. This La Cabanne has turned out nicely and should drink well for 15–20 years.

Polished aromas of blueberry, ripe blackberry, chocolate, vanilla and sweet tobacco. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins. Delicate finish. Try from 2024.
