Château du Rival, Bordeaux Rouge, 2018

In Stock Now!

This stood out in a blind tasting of reasonably priced 2018s: for a clean, red-fruited scent; generous fruit accented with cinnamon; a pleasing softness; decent aromatics; and just a little support. Excellent value from the Lafon family who farm vines at Coubeyrac in Entre-Deux-Mers. Now-2022
