We tasted this back in January…deeply layered, structured, and gorgeously polished red simply crushes the competition at just about anything in the $40 range for Bordeaux, much less our incredible price of just $22.95. Buy as much of this 92 point stunner as you can, and you’ll still wish you bought a few more one day!

Spice, elegance, silk, beautiful’s just a few of the words the critics heap on this lovely wine. We love it for its forward personality and depth of flavor, something we rarely encounter at this price level, and we taste container loads of stuff like this every year! Leroy-Beauval is in the Entre-de-Mer region of Bordeaux and dates back to 1780, but since roughly 2012, it has been on a huge qualitative roll and is one of those savvy buys for anyone who drinks a lot of Bordeaux or Bordeaux blends (like us!).

While this will definitely improve over the next decade, it's pretty irresistible now, for sure. So polished! Loads of black raspberry, dark plums, refined texture, and toasty spices, with the “correct” Bordeaux notes of sweet tobacco and cigar box, and pencil shavings too. Damn delicious if we do say so ourselves. Wildly well-priced...time to stock up while we have it!

Lots of cedary spice, spring flowers, cured meats, truffle, and green tobacco define the bouquet of the 2018 Chateau Leroy-Beauval, and it's medium-bodied, with a silky, elegant texture, fine tannins, and a beautiful finish. This classic, elegant, complex Bordeaux has real character as well as the ability to keep for 10-15 years in cold cellars. This estate is located in the Entre-de-Mer region and the wine is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, brought up in new barrels, made by Matthieu Richard, who handles the wines of Badette.

This is another beautiful Bordeaux Supérieur with very fine tannins that frame a medium-bodied red with dark berries and hints of dark chocolate. Lovely.
90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The 2018 Leroy-Beauval is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc and was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 100% of which are new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with notes of baked black plums, blueberry pie and Black Forest cake with an undercurrent of cedar chest, dried Provence herbs and graphite. The full-bodied palate (15% declared alcohol) is jam-packed with black fruit preserves, framed by chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with an invigorating herbal lift.
