"A total blockbuster of a Saint-Emilion, the 2020 Château Les Grandes Murailles comes from a tiny parcel and is all Merlot aged in 50% new oak, with 10% in amphora. Up-front red and black fruits, chocolaty oak, spice, chalky minerality, and graphite notes all define this stunning wine, which is full-bodied and has a concentrated, layered mouthfeel, building yet fine tannins, and a great finish. This vineyard was purchased by Clos Fourtet, with 2021 being the last release from this vineyard, so don't miss a chance to get some of the last bottling from this undeniably special terroir. As with many 2020s, the cellar will be your friend, and I'd hide bottles for 4-6 years and enjoy over the following two decades."

"The 2020 Les Grandes Murailles is just as impressive as it was from barrel. Bright, saline and punchy, Les Grandes Murailles is driven by clean veins of minerality that confer notable energy. Dark cherry, grilled herbs, chalk, mint and dried flowers lend notable complexity throughout. This is a fabulous showing." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2023)
