Bordeaux 2018: Not Back in Black (Mar 2021)

The 2018 De Lamarque is a total knockout. Inky, deep and wonderfully expressive, the 2018 hits all the right notes. Black cherry, plum, leather, scorched earth and leather imbue the 2018 with so much character. I especially like the way the 2018 grows in the glass as it builds to a huge crescendo. All the elements are so well balanced. Just gorgeous.
