Calon Segur's 100 points was the first to be announced.

Quarin has been releasing his 100-point scores in a series of emails over the past week. Calon Segur was the first to be announcedQuarin compared it to the ‘great’ 1982, praising its perfect balance and remarkable softness. 

Cheval Blanc followed, and the critic said that he had never tasted Cheval Blanc at this level at En Primeur. Lafleur and Latour also deserved the perfect score in his eyes, while Margaux received a range of 99-100 points. 

Overall, Quarin commented that the 2018 vintage in Bordeaux is very “heterogeneous”in line with our analysis of quality and quantity in Bordeaux 2018 – Keenly poised.
