" I loved the 2018 Lynsolence from barrel, and it doesn't disappoint from bottle, offering a bright, perfumed bouquet of blueberries, candied violets, chocolate, and graphite. This cuvée always shows a nicely oaked, richer, modern style yet it has wonderful Saint-Emilion chalky minerality, a stacked mid-palate, and beautiful length on the finish. Give this ripe, sexy 2018 3-4 years in the cellar and it should evolve for 10-15 years or more. I expect this to match the 2009 in terms of quality."
