90 points, The Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Les Tourelles de Longueville is composed of 66% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, aged for 18 months in barriques, 40% new and 60% one year old. Production of this label represents 30% of the harvest this year. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers intense scents of baked blackberries, blackcurrant cordial and plum preserves, with touches of black truffles, charcoal and dark chocolate. The medium-bodied palate is delightfully refreshing and soft-textured, delivering plenty of juicy black fruits and loads of savory sparks, finishing long and lifted.."- Lisa Perrotti-Brown
