Opus One & Overture 2019

Opus One, the celebrated joint venture between luminaries Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, is one of the most highly anticipated wines from the Bordeaux La Place, and the sumptuous 2019 vintage does not disappoint. We were lucky enough to taste both Opus One and its baby brother second wine Overture with the Opus team in August, and every sip confirmed the continued brilliance of this legendary Napa estate.

    A melange jumps at you from the glass of blueberry, wild cherry, greengage, milk chocolate and cream, finished off with mineral touches. The palate is quite simply wonderful now. A ripe, yet crisp entry with firm crunchy acidity lending the wine a zippy mouthfeel. There’s more of those lovely berry flavours, and that finish off with more milk chocolate and Black Forest Gateaux notes, completed with finely integrated tannins and a lovely spice note. Young of course, but succulent and delicious, with a long length. Drink 2022-2039.

  • Jane Anson, June 2022, Score: 93

    Gorgeous plum colour, sumptuous and ready to dive into. The aromatics are deliciously open, with crunchy raspberry and blueberry fruits, balanced and well put together. Feels cohesive, juicy, with plenty of 2019 character (although this is multi vintage, with exact percentages not stated), with nuanced fresh mint leaf and crayon. High Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend, 60% new oak, 40% one year oak, bottled August 2021.
