|92-93 JAMES SUCKLING: "Lovely texture and fruit with beautiful dark-berry and wet-earth character, as well as fresh flowers."
91-93 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2018 Les Portes de l´Am… is drop-dead gorgeous. Inky red fruit, mocha, espresso, mint, wild flowers and sweet spice saturate the palate. Rich, dense and super-concentrated, with tremendous intensity, this opulent, full-throttle wine has so much to offer. Even with all of its intensity, I see a bit more freshness than in the past."
92-94 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "The color of ink, this stunner is fat, plush, juicy and loaded to brim with licorice, plums, flowers and chocolate covered cherries. Opulent in texture, this blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Franc is pure hedonism in a glass. This wine is a Jeffrey Davies Signature Selection Exclusive."
91-93+ JEB DUNNUCK: "The flagship is the 2018 Domaine du Bouscat Les Portes de l´Am, a glass-staining blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Malbec, and 25% Cabernet Franc brought up all in new barrels. Full-bodied, ripe, concentrated, and decadent, it’s nevertheless surprisingly elegant and polished on the palate, with no hard edges. Offering terrific notes of black and blue fruits, spring flowers, violets, and chocolate, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15 years or more."
