93pts Wine Enthusiast

Offering structure as well as black-currant fruits, this wine is already balanced. It has fruit weight, the succulent Merlot balanced by complex Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. A wine with a good future, this should be ready from 2024.

92pts James Suckling

Blackcurrants, violets, dried leaves, graphite and black olives on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Gravelly undertones on the fine, austere finish. Really tight at the end. Better from 2023.

91pts Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Château De France showed nicely, with a concentrated, focused, medium-bodied style as well as classic cherry and currant fruits intermixed with smoky tobacco, gravelly earth, and violet nuances. Its good balance, ripe tannins, and purity of fruit are all notable. It could use a touch more flesh, but this is certainly well done and will benefit from just 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15 years or so.

Winemaker Notes

Very deep garnet red color; delicate nose of light wood, toasted bread and berry jam ; on the palate, the aromas are reproduced with a perfect balance and freshness. Lovely long finish.
