60% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot
The 2018 Château Lespault-Martillac is a winner. Lots of ripe red and black currants, toasted spices, mulberries, flowery incense, and tobacco notes emerge from the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a ripe, plush, sumptuous texture, terrific tannins, and outstanding length. It’s going to deliver loads of pleasure over the coming 15 years or more.
“The bottled wine is terrific. Inky red fruit, blood orange, spice, mint and rose petal all open with time. The 2018 is not super complex, but it is silky, well-balanced and very easy to enjoy. Best of all, readers can enjoy it with minimal cellaring.
“Elegant, silky and sweet, the wine is medium-bodied with layers of ripe, juicy, fresh currants, flowers, plums and savor herbs on the palate and in the refined, energetic, polished finish. This is going to be great on release.” (3/16/2021)
