Sunday! And a very fine Sunday it is… especially for sipping on an excellent 92 POINT BORDEAUX that comes in UNDER $20!!!  YES, that’s no lie and this epic wine is NO JOKE! Chateau Herve-Laroque! Just off the truck, direct from Bordeaux and SINGING with all the gloriously pure and vibrant fruit of the 2019 vintage...WOW!! NEARLY 50% OFF, TOO!

Hey, don’t just take our word for it (although, you know, we try REALLY hard to pick out the gems of the 15,000+ wines we taste every year…) — here’s some highlights from the 92-point Suckling review: “A rich and layered red with blackberry, dark-cherry with light vanilla character… full and delicious. Opulent… 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. ” Those lucky Last Bottlers that snatched up the 16/17 vintages we’ve shared over the last couple years no what’s up! Barely enough – even for a Saturday!

James’s review was pretty spot on, though we’d add in some notes about that definitely-Bordeaux pencil lead quality, plus some warm spice notes of bay laurel, and toasted fennel. Complex, forward, lusciously pleasing… you need some, NOW. You might think this is a Napa or Washington Cabernet when you drink it — plush, warm, brimming with berry fruit and toasty shades of new French oak, it’s OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD… especially at our price! The roots of the Herve family can be traced back to 1607, and they’ve made wine from the property since 1890. Fronsac is a region that we keep on coming back to in our tastings — rock-solid wines coming from here and in a vintage like 2019, the QPR (quality/price ratio) is off the charts. We bought as much as we could in France last year...but it will NOT be enough!! We can’t wait to be back in Bordeaux, but until then… this will certainly do! Will FLY!

“A rich and layered red with blackberry, dark-cherry with light vanilla character. It’s full and delicious. Opulent for the appellation. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Drink after 2024.”

“Herbal nose of eucalyptus and pencil lead. Supple tannins give good support to the dark fruits. This has charm and a nice chalky texture - tannins are present and coat the mouth but they're fine and allow the liquorice-edged black fruits to come through.Minty freshness and acidity underneath. Just a touch spicy towards the finish suggesting oak needs more time to integrate. 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.”
