Chateau Loumelat Cuvee JJ Lesgourges (90WS)
What the Wine Critics Thought: Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points
This is a complex wine that offers firm tannins and rich fruit. It has weight, density and a strong sense of ripeness. With balance and depth, it’s a wine with good aging potential. Drink from 2015. —R.V
