2018 Primeur, Médoc, Moulis and Listrac




In Médoc Moulis and Listrac there are some stars this year with denser, richer wines than usual which can be a good thing to balance those sometimes rather rough structures and tannins that doesn’t always have the body and concentration to match. This year there are more meat on the bone. But some are also alcoholic and gone too far for many palates. So read the tasting notes on the wines you are after carefully to check if it is in a style you like. There are wines this year that are the best or among the best ever from the estate. Then it will be up to you if you approve of that style, or not. Some will be a bit untypical. Poujeaux for example is quite rich and dense. On the other side, when I tried a 1928 Poujeaux last year, brought directly from the estates cellar by owner Matthieu Cuvelier, that was also surprisingly dense, rich and big even now. So maybe we have a new 1928 on our hands 90 years after. There will be lots of value in this segment. Another 70 tasting notes.
