You could drink this now with red meat, but it’s got decades ahead of it.

This has both tannins and concentration although the fruit is the thing, making a wine that will develop relatively quickly. Drink from 2023.

After a few minutes, the fleshy fruit aromatics break though. This is elegant and balanced, a classic, old-school St-Julien. 80% new oak.

Medium to full-bodied and possessing tightly wound red and black fruits layers intermingled with spicy accents, it has a firm, grainy frame and great vivacity, finishing long and perfumed. I'm probably being too conservative with my score here and expect this could blossom in 4-6 years into an even more impressive beauty! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A beautiful wine, it has an almost Pauillac bouquet of blackcurrants, truffle, cedar pencil, and tobacco leaf, with an alluring, meaty, forest floor-like character that develops with time in the glass. This ripe, powerful 2015 stays balanced and in check, with medium to full-bodied richness, ripe, present tannins, and a good finish. As with many 2015s, it’s already hard to resist yet should hit true prime time in another 4-5 years and I suspect evolve for 20-25 years.

The tannins have a softness, making the wine seem already approachable. But patience will be rewarded, as time will add complexities and nuances to the wine. Give it at least another decade or longer before popping a cork. The wine was made from blending 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 9% Cabernet.

Dried anise, black tea and licorice snap notes lurk in the background. The finish is long and gilded with a violet accent. Best from 2021 through 2035. 13,343 cases made. — JM

The palate is...   The 2015 Gruaud Larose has a perfumed and floral bouquet of raspberry coulis and crushed strawberry, well defined if not the most complex among its peers. It has certainly opened up in recent months. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, touches of espresso lacing the red berry fruit. Just a slightly lactic finish detracts from overall delineation. I suspect that there will be improvement - it just needs time to settle. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin
