Laforge 2018, St Emilion Grand Cru – Case of 6 x 75cl En Primeur
Laforge is from the JCP Maltus portfolio of skillfully crafted Saint-Émilion wines. Neil White is the head winemaker, and Thomas Duclos is a consultant here. The 2018 Laforge is blended of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, with 14.8% alcohol and a pH of 3.75. Deep purple-black in color, it opens with seductive dark chocolate, licorice and plum preserves notes with touches of redcurrant jelly and Black Forest cake plus a waft of Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy black fruit, framed by chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a peppery note.
