2019 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93
Smoke, flowers, espresso, truffle, dark red fruits, spice and licorice scents pop with no effort. Silky, soft, lush and polished with a beautiful sense of purity to the sweet, red pit fruits, the wine lingers on the palate and in the finish with fresh sweet berries, and touches of spicy chocolate in the endnote. Drink from 2024-2037.

With a nice dark hue, the wine shoots out with its perfume of oak, licorice, vanilla bean and plummy notes. On the palate, the wine is round, juicy, medium/full-bodied and fruity, with a nice lingering dark cherry finish. 90-92 Pts

2018 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92
Smoked plums, espresso and licorice notes on the nose and palate work well here. Medium-bodied with soft, supple, elegant textures and sweet, red fruits which fill in the finish. This will be great right out of the gate.

Loads of ripe, juicy, dark red fruits with a blast of licorice, chocolate and strong espresso note rides on top on the fleshy berries. Round, forward and easy to like, you can enjoy this on release, or with a few years of aging.

Lush, juicy, dark red fruits, espresso, earth and fennel create the nose. In the mouth, the fruit is velour -- plush and soft with a concentration of flavor and sweetness in the finish.

2013 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 86
This nose is tight and requires coaxing to find its aromatics, while the palate delivers spicy red berries and cherries, medium body and a light style. 85-88 Pts

2012 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91
Lusciously textured, with smoky, licorice tinged, fresh, sweet, ripe, black cherry and chocolate flavors from start to finish. A few more years will add more secondary nuance and softness. This was surprisingly good.

1955 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 80
On the one hand, the wine has clearly faded, with high levels of acidity and not a lot of fruit. But there is enough there, there to make it at least interesting. On the other hand, considering that the wine comes from moderate terroir made by a chateau that is not known for making seriously age-worthy wines, as this is more than 60 years old, this was an amazing bottle of wine making it a treat to experience.
