Chateau l'Eglise Bordeaux Superieure 2018 Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc
Château L’Eglise Bordeaux Supérieur 2018. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.
This is the new 2018 vintage of this classic Bordeaux quaffer - in fact, it's much more serious than a quaffer in terms of its style but at such a modest price point you can really splash it around. The aromatics are glossy and dark fruited with creamy vanillin oak, higher Merlot content (it seems to me) from this new vintage, less smoky and savoury than the 2017. But the palate is where this wine really shows its class as it's endowed with full body, grip, grunt, and length. Has muscle and drive in abundance. 13.5%. Drink now to 2030. Cork.
