2018 Bordeaux Futures
All wines are Bordeaux futures; earliest anticipated arrival is Fall 2021
Cos d’Estournel  $1,164/6 bs
97-100 WA, 97-100 AG, 98-99 JS, 17.5 JR

"A regal, soaring Saint-Estèphe, the 2018 Cos d'Estournel is also clearly one of the wines of the vintage. On the palate, the 2018 is dark and sumptuous, with striking aromatic presence and silky tannins that wrap around a rich core of exotic fruit. Black cherry, savory herbs, leather, spice and menthol build in the glass in a wine that is both aromatically intense and richly textured. The 2018 has been nothing short of breathtaking on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. Don't miss it." (97-100 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2019
 
Haut-Bailly  $690/6 bs
96-98+ WA, 94-97 AG, 97-98 JS, 17.5 JR

"...Deep purple-black in color, it opens slowly with profound notions of Black Forest cake, crème de cassis, roasted nuts and black olives, unfurling to reveal notions of menthol, crushed rocks, molten licorice and chargrilled meat plus a hint of lilacs. Full-bodied, rich and densely laden with layer upon layer of vibrant black fruits and mineral nuances, it has a solid backbone of firm, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long with compelling restraint and exciting energy." (96-98+ points) Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue, April 2019
 
Pichon-Longueville, Baron  $954/6 bs
97-99 WA, 94-97 AG, 97-98 JS, 18 JR

"Pichon Baron is exceptional in 2018. Pliant, silky and super-finessed, the 2018 has a level of textural finesse that really elevates the wine into Pauillac's upper echelon. Ripe fruit and silky tannins give the 2018 much of its inimitable finesse. At the same time, the 2018 is bright, punchy and surprisingly fresh, not to mention absolutely impeccable in its balance. The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot, while new oak is 80%." (94-97 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2019
