The black-fruit aromas are really ripe, but there’s no hint of jammy stuff. Tastes simultaneously juicy and creamy, and the tannins are so graceful: The wine glides across the palate. If it were more subtle, the score would go even higher.

(WS89-92 points) Supple, with crushed plum and blackberry fruit, carried by a velvety structure. Offers a lingering cocoa edge, but this is driven by a pure beam of fruit. – JM

It is pretty much the same from bottle. There is no shortage of power in the dark stone fruit, leather, smoke, lavender and menthol flavors, but I am not sure the 2014 will ever have the charm that is such a hallmark of the year. Today, it comes across as austere, even if there is good persistence and intensity in the big, saline-drenched finish. Tasted two times.

The 2014 Clos l'Oratoire has certainly lost its bashful personality since en primeur, now in bottle, much more exuberant with pure cranberry, boysenberry and orange rind aromas, nicely delineated with impressive intensity. The palate is smooth, almost velvety on the entry, a plush and quite luscious Saint Emilion with impressive volume and presence. It might lack a little delineation, but there is satisfying length as those mulberry and raspberry notes persist and linger long after the wine has departed. This surpasses my expectations. - Neal Martin
