The 2018 Chateau de Lamarque wine has a cohesive, well-defined bouquet of vibrant blackberry and raspberry fruit, crushed rock and light sous-bois notes, sophisticated and focused. This Chateau de Lamarque wine has a deep garnet-purple in color. The 2018 Lamarque opens with exotic spice scents of cassia, star anise and fenugreek over a core of baked blackcurrants, plum preserves and blueberry coulis plus wafts of redcurrant jelly and wild thyme. The 2018 Lamarque vintage has a full-bodied, the palate coats the mouth with pure, dark fruits and a firm, ripe, grainy texture with sparks of freshness coming through on the long finish. The 2018 Chateau de Lamarque is quintessentially Haut-Médoc wine.
