Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 90/100
The 2018 Les Grands Chênes is wonderfully expressive. Super-ripe black cherry, dried herb, plum, chocolate and leather give this potent Médoc from Bernard Magrez tons of complexity. I would give the 2018 a year or two in bottle, as the tannins are a bit imposing. This is a pushed style, with a strong oak imprint, but there is also more than enough depth to allow for many years of fine drinking. The blend is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 91/100
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 les Grands Chênes comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of stewed black plums, warm cassis and boysenberries, plus suggestions of pencil shavings, wild sage and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with energetic, crunchy black fruits, supported by fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a compelling herbal lift.
