2018 Lynsolence (750ml) »FUTURES«

Merlot from Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

2018 Lynsolence

I loved the 2018 Lynsolence from barrel, and it doesn't disappoint from bottle, offering a bright, perfumed bouquet of blueberries, candied violets, chocolate, and graphite. This cuvée always shows a nicely oaked, richer, modern style yet it has wonderful Saint-Emilion chalky minerality, a stacked mid-palate, and beautiful length on the finish. Give this ripe, sexy 2018 3-4 years in the cellar and it should evolve for 10-15 years or more. I expect this to match the 2009 in terms of quality.

Currant, blackberry-leaf, tobacco, black-tea and bitter-chocolate aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Tight, tannic and focused. Extremely polished and refined. Better from 2025.
