|91-92 JAMES SUCKLING: "A lovely and beautiful red with blackberry and currant aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a clean finish. About 20 per cent malbec in the blend. Nice."
91-93 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Inky in color, the wine is round, sweet, floral, juicy, fleshy, frruity and already easy to drink. The wine is made from blending 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Franc."
90-92 JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2018 Domaine du Bouscat La Gargone is 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. This cuvée sees a longer élevage compared to the Caduce and will spend two years in barrel. As with all the wines here, it’s inky colored and has a powerful bouquet of blueberries, crushed rocks, gravelly earth, and spring flowers. It’s full-bodied, concentrated, and downright sexy, with sweet tannins. It should keep nicely for 10-15 years."
