|91-93 THE WINEADVOCATE: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 La Cabanne sashays out of the glass with fragrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries potpourri and fertile loam over a core of Black Forest cake and warm plums. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is juicy, softly texture and already very expressive, offering tons of freshness and a provocative mineral note on the finish."
18 WEINWISSER: "96?% Merlot, 4?% Cabernet Franc, 14,6?%-vol., 42?hl/ha. Sattes Rubin. Komplexes Bouquet mit rotbeerigen Konturen, Sandelholz und Johannisbeergelee, dahinter heller Tabak und Lakritze. Am mittleren Gaumen mit engmaschigem Tanningerüst, mineralischem Kern und fein spröder Textur. Im gebündelten Finale zeigt sich die Delikatesse introvertiert und endet mit Wacholder und Pflaumenhaut. Kann noch zulegen."
91 DECANTER: "A lovely Cabanne from owner François Estager - creamy, deep and plenty of Pomerol signature. Creamy texture with concentrated liquorice root and softer chocolate shavings. Gourmet edged with clear power. It has sweet blue and blackberry fruit expression but balanced out with fresh acidities. Thomas Duclos consultant."
93-94 JAMES SUCKLING: "The blueberry, wet-earth and mushroom character here is deep and complex. Beautiful polish to the tannins. Full-bodied, yet it remains reserved and fine. Extremely long and lingering. Nice follow-up to the 2018."
92-94 ANTONIO GALLONI: " The 2019 La Cabanne, which is pure Merlot, has a sensual bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry aromas, touches of rose petal and just a little dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe tannins, focused and nimble, then gaining weight towards the precise, dark chocolate-tinged finish. This is one of the finest La Cabannes that I have encountered out of barrel. This is a great wine from François Estager. Tasted twice with consistent notes." - Neal Martin
91-93 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2019 La Cabanne is deep and resonant in the glass. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice, lavender and espresso confer darkness to this mid-weight yet broad Pomerol. La Cabanne is decidedly somber in this tasting. The richness and pure power of Merlot come through loud and clear here. Tasted two times."
91-93 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Silky, sexy and earthy, with velvet tannins, medium-body and that ocean of ripe, luscious, fresh plum essence with chocolate that you find in Pomerol. Give it 6-8 years before popping a cork and enjoy it over the next 10-15 years after that. Since 2015 La Cabanne has been getting better and better."
91-93 JEB DUNNUCK: "The Merlot-dominated 2019 Château La Cabanne boasts a big, sexy nose of ripe red and black currants, toasty oak, spice box, and incense. With full-bodied richness, a big, fleshy texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish, it´s another beautiful Pomerol in the making."
