TASTING NOTE: Pierre Lurton, of Château Cheval Blanc and Château d'Yquem, brings forth an affordable, right bank Bordeaux that is worthy of his reputation. Savory and bright with notes of juniper, light smoke, bramble, dried wildflowers and fresh, aromatic violets. Generous flavours of red and black fruit are complemented by a slight lactic note and elegant spice from older barriques. The palate offers ripe tannins that are mellow but not soft. Ready to drink now or hold another 2-3 years. Score - 89 (Sara d'Amato, winealign.com, June 5, 2018) Price $ 20.95
