The wine is medium bodied, silky, soft and fresh, with loads of ripe, dusty black raspberries in the finish. It was produced from a blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc, setting a record for the highest amount of Cabernet Franc in the blend.

(90-93) The 2018 Grand Village is racy, silky and beautifully perfumed, with striking aromatic lift and generous vibrant red berry fruit. Medium in body, gracious and wonderfully nuanced, Grand Village is fabulous in 2018. Sweet floral notes and a burst of Bouchet (Cabernet Franc) savoriness punctuate the finish. Once again, Grand Village is a fabulous wine in its peer group, and frankly, beyond. A reduction of the vineyard from 15 hectares to 12, done to focus on just the best parcels, is starting to pay handsome dividends. Out of curiosity, I came back to the Grand Village after tasting through the entire range at Lafleur, and it showed beautifully.-AG

(90 - 93) The 2018 Grand Village is composed of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc; the Merlot was harvested September 24-28 and the Cabernet Franc was harvested October 5-6. Deep garnet-purple colored, it struts out of the glass with gregarious scents of wild blueberries, baked plums and warm blackcurrants with hints of chocolate-covered cherries, dusty soil, garrigue and charcuterie. Full-bodied and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate features tons of black and blue fruit flavors with a firm, chewy frame and earthy finish.- LPB

This has huge personality and is a wine to start taking serious note of. The fruits here are pretty dark, the Cabernet Franc really taking the lead, with more cool blue fruit than is usual with Grand Village, real grip and depth to the tannic hold and salinity through the finish. From the Guinaudeau family of Château Lafleur. 3.55pH. Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/france/bordeaux/chateau-grand-village-bordeaux-bordeaux-france-2018-29666#4sxrVHz2gQzLwUDo.99

(91-92) This shows freshness and minerality with blueberry and currant aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, silky and lightly chewy. Fun texture to this.
