Specifically, the firm tannins and notable oakiness have integrated very nicely. A rush of black cherry, plum, chocolate and leather give the wine its bombastic, flamboyant personality. Large and ample to its core, the 2014 is seriously opulent and extracted, and yet all the elements are fused together beautifully. The 2014 will appeal most to readers who enjoy the bolder side of Saint-Émilion. I tasted the 2014 twice and it was equally impressive on both occasions. Consulting winemaker Jean-Philippe Fort has done a terrific job. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

A savory and rich red with ripe tannins and sweet fruit. Dark chocolate and walnuts, too. Medium-to full-bodied, extremely long and beautiful. Lovely finish. Needs at least three or four years to soften.

It has a ripe, quite powerful bouquet with layers of dark berry, cedar fruit and a touch of apricot. The palate is medium-bodied with fine structure, linear in style with an attractive bitter cherry edge on the graphite-tinged finish. This is very classy, just as it was in barrel and now in bottle. Go seek out this beautifully made Saint Emilion. - Neal Martin

Aromas of blackberry and plum mix with notes of saddle leather, toasty oak and dark chocolate. The tannins are big and firm, though surprisingly integrated at this stage, making this already approachable and a candidate for near-term enjoyment. There is excellent length to the dark fruit with a touch of lift on the finish from a core of acidity. Drink now and for the next 10-15 years.
