This is perhaps more precocious on the nose compared to Denis Durantou's La Chenade and Les Cruzelles 2015s, gradually revealing an attractive floral, dried rose petal/pot pourri scent as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite grippy in the mouth, the acidity nicely judged here and again, very harmonious and sensual on the finish. You could almost whisk this out of barrel and drink this now, but preferably, give it 4-5 years in bottle. - Neal Martin collapse

This wine has real character. I would not be surprised to see this get better in the bottle. A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14.7% alcohol with a pH of 3.62. collapse

The wood is beautifully assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, a little savory and dried blood surfacing toward the finish to complete a glorious wine that fulfills its promise from barrel. Superb. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

The difference here is the quality of the fruit extraction - what you get is juicy and intense fruit which is extremely poised and well held together, with a lick of salinity on the finish; persistent without being overpowering. Prices have risen recently, but it remains great value considering the quality. Not a blockbuster Castillon, but has a quiet power all of its own - what a brilliant wine.

Made from mostly Merlot blended with 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and brought up in just under 50% new barrels, it offers lots of black cherries, forest floor, toasted spice and dried earth aromas and flavors. Deep, rich, beautifully concentrated and with plenty of tannins, it shows the sexier side to the vintage, yet has structure, acidity, and terrific purity. It's hard to resist today, but will be even better in 2-3 years and have 10-15 years or more of overall longevity. collapse
