The 2019 Chateau de Lamarque wine has a tightly wound bouquet leaning towards the red side of the fruit spectrum, touches of wild mint emerging with aeration leading to a somewhat playful nose. The palate is medium-bodied with a very satisfyingly saline entry. This Lamarque wine evokes an estuary scene with oyster sheds, persistent with a tangy, graphite tinged finish. Undoubtedly one of the best de Lamarque wines that I have encountered from barrel.
On the edges of Haut-Médoc as it heads towards St Julien, this increasingly impressive estate has delivered a complex, well balanced wine in 2019. High levels of Petit-Verdot among the highest in the AOC give not just a deep color but also an impressively spiced chocolate feel, with acidity that leads the palate upwards on the finish and imparts some clear austerity. 33% new oak. 2.6pH, IPT87.
