Sit back and relax while I share a bit of liquid magic with you. Today's wonder is the 2018 A Nos Amours Par Lafont Fourcat Bordeaux.
This brainchild was born from two highly accomplished and talented individuals who joined forces to cultivate one of the best Bordeaux values of the century,and certainly one of BHW Bordeaux's bestsellers.
A Nos Amours is a magical experience from the juggernauts behind Château Valandraud and Château Ausone, two of the Right Bank's most well-established Châteaux.
The 2018 A Nos Amours is a young love, meant to be enjoyed early and without end. When you pull the cork out of the bottle sparks begin to fly. Lust and love fill the air and all you want is that sweet potion running across your lips. Succulent red berries, rich black currents, and luscious violets jump out of the bottle like a genie from a lamp tantalizing you from smell to sip. This is one magical love ride you won't want to miss!
Château Lafont Fourcat is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, near the village of Castillon la Bataille and not far from Saint-Émilion. In 1993 the Chateau was acquired by Paul-Marie Morillon, who is also a consultant for Châteaux Ausone, Mondotte, and Yquem. The wines of Lafont Fourcat are produced with the help of Bordeaux's bad boy winemaker, Jean-Luc Thunevin, founder of the highly sought-after Chateau Valandraud. The 2018 Lafont Fourcat A Nos Amours is the ultimate definition of a wine that punches well above its weight class. What are you waiting for?
On top of that, 2018 is a vintage that all savvy wine drinkers and Bordeaux aficionados should be aware of. Wine critic Jeb Dunnuck said, “2018 is a thrilling vintage with no shortage of legendary wines and I cannot imagine anyone who purchases these wines will be disappointed.”Dunnuck also awarded this stunning wine a 90pt review, and confirmed that “Readers looking for a great value for near-term drinking should snatch this beauty up.”
So here’s the deal: A beautiful 2x 90pt Red Bordeaux, born in an epic 96pt vintage, produced by the same winemaker as Ch. Ausone, (which wines can easily be found for $1,000/bottle!) and only $29.99 (that's the best price anywhere!)
