reviewsJames Suckling 94-95/100
A red with smoke, blackcurrant and graphite aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Hints of seaweed and wet earth.
Wine Advocate 90-92/100
The 2019 Les Tourelles de Longuevilleis aged 70% in one-year oak and 30% in new oak for 12 months. It offers classic Pauillac aromas of black fruit intermingling with smoke and tobacco, a little withdrawn at first but unfurling nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of graphite and black pepper infusing the black fruit, a little more weight than many other vintages of this Deuxième Vin that I have tasted. Maybe a bit of a dark horse? I bet this aged longer than consumers will be willing to afford it.
