Wine Enthusiast, April 2018
This wine is packed with ripe black fruit and structured by a dense, mineral texture. Generous fruit tones and plenty of tannic grip translate to a wine worthy of the cellar. Drink from 2025.

The 2015 Les Astéries is a wine of pure and total allure. Much more satisfying from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2015 marries the natural intensity of the year and Jonathan Maltus's personal imprint with energy - a combination that dazzles from the very first taste. The dark cherry, espresso, mocha and licorice flavors bristle with power. Sumptuous in feel, but with good savory and mineral underpinnings from the Franc, the 2015 has much to offer. The blend is 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc.

(WS91-94 points) Very solid core of almost unctuous raspberry and plum fruit bursts forth, giving this an exuberant feel, while solidly grippy licorice and singed vanilla notes fill in on the dense finish. Maybe a touch pumped up in the end, but there’s good freshness here to wait this out.—J.M.

Blended of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc and displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Les Asteries is scented of cast-iron pan, beef drippings and garrigue over a core of warm plums and black cherry compote... Blended of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc and displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Les Asteries is scented of cast-iron pan, beef drippings and garrigue over a core of warm plums and black cherry compote with a waft of underbrush and truffles. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and with a firm frame of velvety tannins, it has a refreshing backbone lifting the densely packed fruit to a long, earthy and mineral-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Very attractive rich, red berries with fresh red flowers, baking spices and dark, earthy aromas. The palate has an impressive build, gathering fleshy presence and rich, dark-berry flavors as it runs into a long, regal finish. Try from 2022.

(JL91-93 points) 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc produced a rich, polished, plush, ripe wine with silky tannins, concentration, ripe fruits and minerality. The wine reached 14.8% alcohol with no sensation of heat.
