- James Suckling – (91-92)
Very pretty blueberry and blackberry character with hints of cedar and walnuts. Medium body, tight and polished. A beauty.
- Wine Advocate – Lisa Perrotti-Brown (91-93+)
Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Les Trois Croix offers soft-spoken scents of iron ore, crushed rocks and mossy bark over a core of warm plums, baked black cherries and spice cake. Medium to full bodied, it has a solid core of muscular black fruits with a firm, grainy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
- Decanter – Jane Anson (94)
This wine shows how well Fronsac can do in 2018, and it’s a value pick of the vintage. There’s so much volume through the palate here, it’s extremely juicy with great concentration and an explosion of damson and black cherry fruit, given definition by slate on the finish that speaks of the limestone soils. Truly a brilliant testament to Patrick Leon, as this was his last vintage, but don’t think this score is sentimentality – the wine deserves it
