the best Bordeaux wine I tasted at Wine Paris last Spring, the Château Maillet 2018 Pomerol was a mind-blowing experience. Densely-packed and chewy, its the perfect Bordeaux wine for Napa Cabernet lover's.
100% barrel-fermented in 100% new French oak, Chateau Maillet has fantastic 93-95-points scores and is normally priced in the $55-$70/bottle range.

95-points - Truffles and chocolate with black cherries, plum, espresso and a hint of coconut on the back end grabs your attention. Opulent, hedonistic, sensuous and richly textured, this is just great now and after 5 years or so in the cellar. If you like hedonistic wines, this is for you. ~The Wine Cellar Insider
94-points - Blackcurrants, blueberries, minerals and cedar on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. Juicy and suave texture with a ink-like feel on the palate. Very polished tannins. Tight finish that’s still in reserve. Underlying, classic beauty here. Try after 2024. ~ James Suckling
93+-points- Black cherries, mulberries, black tea, damp earth, and violet notes emerge from the 2018 Château Maillet, a spicy, medium to full-bodied, complex, and sumptuous Pomerol that's already hard to resist. With sweet tannins and plenty of mid-palate depth as well as loads of chocolaty fruit and opulence on the palate, it's going to continue evolving for 10-15 years. ~Jeb Dunnock
