96+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "One of the wines of the vintage has to be the 2018 Leirana Finca Genoveva, produced with 200-year-old vines from an exceptional harvest and matured in 2,500-liter oak foudres, where it matured for one year with lees until bottling. This 2018 might be a little more reductive and benefits from some time in the glass, so this would be a candidate for decanting if you open it now. This is a lot more civilized than the 2015; this is gentler and more elegant, and there is great balance. This is a version of Genoveva that drinks well early on—the grapes ripen thoroughly, and it's all in its place—but there's freshness and stuffing for a long life in bottle. 5,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2019. Drink: 2020-2028. (Jun 2020)"
