Ripe, structured yet also fruity, this is a fine wine that has a good future. It has a dry core that will fill out and come together with the juicy black-currant fruits. It will age well, so drink from 2023. Read more

Gently lifted, ripe red berries with a greener, leafy thread, too. The tannins have some chew here, giving quite a firm edge to the fruit. Smooth, succulent and lithe feel on the finish. Drink or hold.

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 La Garricq has a soft, slightly muffled bouquet with red plum and crushed strawberry fruit that needs to muster a little more delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly under-ripe tannin on the entry. It fades too quickly, finishing in an attenuated fashion. Early drinking only.

Winemakers Note

This small vineyard of less than 3 ha is composed of two parcels : one near Brillette and Chasse Spleen mostly with clay and gravels, and another more in the North with mostly limestone and gravels. It is a very small production of about 12 000 / 15 000 bts depending of the vintage. In 2017 the vines were highly damaged by the frost and produced almost nothing, even if the wine is great. A particularity of this wine is the large part of Petit Verdot in it : about 15-20%. It gives a nice style to the wine, structure and capacity of ageing ! The vineyard is starting its organic conversion and the first vintage 100% organic should be 2021. We have had the chance to taste the wines recently, from the vintage 2011 to the vintage 2017 : our team loved them, and we have decided to go for it on an exclusive basis. We offer today the few cases of 2017 available - very few, but we also have some back vintages available, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. CVBG exclusivity - A real gem to discover !
