Domaine de L'A Red 2018 Futures

Mr Derenoncourt, Bordeaux's most sought-after consultant, is also a producer. Obviously, he (with his wife) applies in his vineyards the methods that have made his success: respect for the terroir and biotope, subtle vinification and maturation, wines of great aromatic precision.

Bettane & Desseauve : 92-93/100 « Corps d’une très harmonieuse souplesse, beaucoup de fraîcheur, longueur aromatique avec de l’énergie. »
Revue du Vin de France : 16,5-17,5/20 « C'est la bouche qui fait la différence avec ses tanins poudrés, sa matière enrobante, sa trame minérale sapide et sa finale évanescente. »
Quarin : 92/100 « Délicat à l'attaque, délicieux en milieu de bouche, très fruité et minutieux dans sa texture, le vin évolue finement pulpeux, long, fondant et très agréable. Belle longueur. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2018 Domaine de l'A is powerful, dense and full of personality. Rich and ample on the palate, the 2018 packs a serious kick of intensity in all of its dimensions. As for the wine, it is fabulous. Domaine de l'A is a rare Côtes de Castillon that needs bottle age to be at its best. There is plenty to look forward to, that much is clear. »
Martin (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a lot of vanilla-y oak that coats the mouth. There is sufficient fruit underneath to support that, but the wine possesses a great deal of substance and will benefit from three or four years in bottle. I expect it will end up toward the top of my banded score. »
