extraprima Saint-Estèphe | Bordeaux2018 92 – 93 LE BOSCQ Saint-Estèphe Parker 89 – 91 | Suckling 93 – 94 | Le Boscq lies in the northern part of the Saint-Estèphe appellation and belongs to the Dourthe group. Again and again, especially in warmer vintages, this is a remarkably concentrated wine. 63 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 % Merlot, and 4 % Petit Verdot made it into the 2018 assemblage. Dark, purple color. Rich, deep, and youthful, this very closed-reductive Le Boscq still smells of yogurt in the youthful state. This means it needs some more time to develop fully, but there is absolutely no hurry at all. In the mouth, it presents itself dark-berry-scented, pretty clear and pure, aromatically in a mix of cassis and blueberries — very dense structured, with excellent purity again and marvelous length. Its linear tannins are always reserved, cool, and of medium weight. Those who dislike the opulence and richness of many Saint-Emilions may feel at home here in Saint-Estèphe. 25 92 – 93 LES PAGODES DE COS Saint-Estèphe Parker 93 – 95 | Suckling 94 – 95 | WeinWisser 17.5/2 About 35 % of the production at Cos d’Estournel went into the second wine Les Pagodes de Cos. It consists of 54 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 37 % Merlot, 6 % Petit Verdot, and 3 % Cabernet Franc. With 14.6 % alcohol, it ages in 20 % new barrels. Dense and meaty, full and rich, the Pagodes shows a lot of juice and great spiciness with tightly woven tannins, quite fresh and long. An excellent second wine with style and class. 92 – 93 LILIAN-LADOUYS Saint-Estèphe Parker 90 – 92 | Suckling 93 – 94 | In 2008, Jacky Lorenzetti acquired the Lilian- Ladouys winery in Saint-Estèphe, and a year later, the Château Pédesclaux in Pauillac. Much has been invested to increase the quality of the wines. What initially seemed a bit cool and stiff now gets more and more meat and character. For research of quality, new paths were taken here. Lilian-Ladouys, for example, ages by 40 % its wine in tonneaux instead of barriques, with about twice the capacity. 59 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 37 % Merlot, and 4 % Petit Verdot were aged in 40 % new oak with 14.4 % alcohol. The color is black. 2018 smells dense, dull, and cool, with quite a fresh, still somewhat of a smooth fruit aroma. Racy, very polished and clear, it remains full on the palate and has a lot of balance as well as very good concentration and length. A wine with great potential. 92 – 93 MARQUIS DE CALON Saint-Estèphe Parker 92 – 94 | Suckling 91 – 92 | WeinWisser 18/20 The Marquis de Calon always has a very different character than the Grand Vin Calon-Ségur due to the high content of Merlot. 53 % Merlot is present in 2018, with 47 % Cabernet Sauvignon. It is aged in 30 % new barrels and achieved a proud 14.9 % alcohol, again due to the Merlot. Tight, full and meaty, the Marquis de Calon is a bit chubby as usual, round, creamy, and silky. The rich tannins are buffered with lots of juice and breed. A wine that the Frenchman likes to refer to as »vin gourmand«. Images above: Calon-Ségur 92 – 93 PETIT BOCQ Saint-Estèphe Suckling 90 – 91 | Decanter 90 | The Petit Bocq consists of 50 % Merlot, 48 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 2 % Petit Verdot. Dark color. Rich, sweet, and intense in smell, very fruit-driven, cool, and opulent, with expansive and fully mature aromas. Powerful and compact on the palate, it shows good depth and firm tannins. Rich, massive, and chocolaty the Petit Bocq operates in the middle, with fine, lively acidity, lots of power, and generous core. This is a classic structured Saint-Estèphe with grip and a spicy-powerful finish. 92 – 93 PHÉLAN-SÉGUR Saint-Estèphe Parker 93 – 95 | Suckling 95 – 96 | Somehow you would have expected a bit more from Phélan-Ségur; maybe it will come with aging. It was harvested from the 24 th of September to the 11 th of October; the yield was a pleasingly 49 hl per hectare. 57 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 43 % Merlot are aged at about 14 % of alcohol in 55 % new barrels. Black color. Dark berry aromas, densely staggered, and full, are present in the smell, not as deep as expected. In the mouth, the Phélan-Ségur begins round and with a creamy structure, has a lot of pressure and body, with taut tannins, a lot of tension, and a good, saturated fruit. Within the very clear structure is missing some length. It seems a little less focused than usual. Wait. 92 – 93 TRONQUOY-LALANDE Saint-Estèphe Parker 93 – 95 | Suckling 91 – 92 | Tronquoy-Lalande belongs to Montrose. The 2018 consists of 51 % Merlot, 44 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 % Petit Verdot, and 2 % Cabernet Franc. It was harvested from 18 th of September to 4 th of October. Dark, dense, and massive, the Tronquoy-Lalande shows a lot of substance and enormous power, with dark berry fruit and graphite in the mouth, strong tannins, and firm-bodied character.

Bordeaux2018 | Saint-Estèphe extraprima 26 91 – 92 BERNARD MAGREZ Saint-Estèphe Suckling 92 – 93 | In 2016, Bernard Magrez bought a 4.73-hectare vineyard in St.- Estèphe and named the wine Château Bernard Magrez. As expected, Michel Rolland is the oenologist. One part was fermented in open barriques (vinification integrale), the rest in tanks. 70 % Merlot and 30 % Cabernet Sauvignon made it into the assemblage and age in 35 % new oak. Liqueur sweet and very opulent in the nose with dark berry fruit. In the mouth, it shows a rich, massive tannin structure. The Bernard Magrez 2018 is round, very intense and solid, has enormous body and strength, but is somewhat untypical for Saint- Estèphe, drying out a bit in the finish. 91 – 92 LAFITTE CARCASSET Saint-Estèphe Suckling 91 – 92 | The Lafitte Carcasset has a black color. Dense and massive, it comes aromatically from a very concentrated side. Powerful and with a good, racy structure in the mouth, it has tight-knit and compact tannins with a slightly rough character. Rich, deep, spicy, and long, this small Saint-Estèphe impresses with a courageous appearance. 91 – 92 DE PEZ Saint-Estèphe Parker 91 – 93 | Suckling 93 – 94 | With 42 hl per hectare, the yield was quite good at de Pez. Each 49 % Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and each 1 % Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot age together with 14 % alcohol in 30 % new barrels. The tasted sample at the Union Grand Cru was taken from 80 % new barrels, as we were honestly told after asking for information. At these tastings, hardly anyone asks questions, a pitty. Black color with purple rim. Dense and offensive in the nose, with concentrated dark-berry fruit. It has beautiful structure of racy new oak, which gives creaminess and fullness to the sample, together with the cool and juicy fruit. Some cassis and tar in the aftertaste. Very solid Saint-Estèphe. 90 – 91 DOMEYNE Saint-Estèphe Parker 89 – 91 | Dense, modern, and sweet, the Domeyne is very firm and pithy with a dry structure. A bit exhausting, cool, and astringent in the finish. Good grape material was at least available. 91 – 92 DE CÔME Saint-Estèphe With sweet fruit, liqueur, and spicy oak, the de Côme is trying hard to attract attention. Powerful and rich in extraction, it fills the mouth and remains dense and full on the palate, with a good polished structure. 91 – 92 LA DAME DE MONTROSE Saint-Estèphe Parker 90 – 92 | Suckling 95 – 96 | The La Dame de Montrose is much rounder and smoother than the Grand Vin. This is also due to the higher Merlot content of 52 %, together with 39 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 % Cabernet Franc and 5 % Petit Verdot. Dark-berried aromas, round and full on the tongue, it has fine, polished tannins, good power, and spiciness, but it looks a bit too smooth. The 14.5 % alcohol does not matter in taste; it is aged in 35 % new wood. 90 – 91 LA HAYE Saint-Estèphe Suckling 89 – 90 | The La Haye consists of 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 45 % Merlot and 5 % Petit Verdot, aged in 46 % new barrels. Dark, dense and massive, the La Haye is built with a compact, powerful mouthfeel, it remains a bit slim in the middle and seems slightly over-extracted with a hard touch to it. 90 – 91 TOUR DE PEZ Saint-Estèphe Dense garnet red. Offensive and clear, with abundant red berry fruit in the nose. It has a substantial attack in the mouth, with good fruit and spices, rather austere appearance, classic and with a lot of punch. In the middle, it dries a bit but shows good concentration and a limited length. 90 – 91 TOUR DES TERMES Saint-Estèphe Suckling 92 – 93 | Decanter 91 | The Tour des Termes consists of 60 % Merlot, 30 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 5 % each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Dense and concentrated, with good structure and juicy midpalate, the Tour des Termes has a soft acidity, accompanied by lots of tannins and rich oak-aromas. First somewhat dull and dry, with a good elegance, the Tour des Termes shows rather intense, but to the finish the aromatic profile is drying out. 89 – 90 BEAU-SITE | SÉGUR DE CABANAC | TOUR SAINT-FORT | Saint-Estèphe
