|90 DECANTER: "You really can see the impact of the small yields in 2018 - just 12hl/ha at La Gurgue. Inky in colour, the flavours are correspondingly intense, with dark cassis fruit and textured, tight tannins as you might expect. 20% new oak. Eric Boissenot consults."
93-94 JAMES SUCKLING: "This is dense and layered with a velvety texture and very rich palate. Powerful yet fresh. Creamy and minerally. Unique Gurgue. From biodynamically grown grapes."
90-92 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2018 La Gurgue is rich, deep and fleshy, with quite a bit more density than is the norm. Ripe red berry/plum fruit, spice, cedar, wild flowers and tobacco develop in the glass, but it is the wine´s sheer textural richness that stands out most. Mildew was especially severe here, with yields of just 12 hectoliters per hectare. I can´t wait to taste this from bottle. The blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot."
