‘Aromas of blackberries, dried lavender, black olives, tobacco, herbs and some smoked meat. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Layered and concentrated with a sleek, savory finish. 85% merlot, 12% cabernet franc and 3% malbec. Better from 2022.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 93/100

‘This is great stuff and highly drinkable with a wonderful richness on the nose and palate. It’s pretty fierce in fact and has real impact with the austerity of the mid palate quickly filled out by rich sweet black cherry fruit and a deeply spiced finish. The harvest took place between 24 September and 5 October. 2021-2028’ – Jane Anson, Decanter, 93/100

‘Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Puygueraud (85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec) sings of kirsch, redcurrant jelly and blackberry preserves with hints of baked plums, black truffles and tapenade. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers bags of energetic red and black berry layers, supported by plush tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and lifted.’ – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 89/100

‘The 2018 Puygueraud packs a serious punch. Bold, super-ripe and explosive, the 2018 possesses striking depth at this level. Blackberry jam, chocolate, grilled herbs and spice are all generous in this rich Côtes de Francs. It will be interesting to see how the 2018 develops during élevage. Today, it is quite promising and complex, especially within its peer group. Even with gentler hand in vinification, the 2018 is a powerful wine that very much shows the richness of the year. The blend is 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. Tasted three times.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 88-90/100
