Very fleshy and supple in its usual style, it may not be massively complex but it makes up for it with an attractive fruit and in this vintage a particularly full, fine-tannined middle - a really nice texture and balanced length. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 89-90 L&S (May 2016)

Very deep crimson. Lively and full of life. Perhaps not the densest but offers great fruit. GV Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2016)
Rating: 91 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Apr 2016)
Nose fairly closed, but well-knitted damson fruit, fresh fine tannins and good promise to age. An estate that now offers sure-fire value. 62% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Drinking range: 2021 - 2032 Rating: 89 Jane Anson, Decanter (Apr 2016)
Château La Garde
Château La Garde is a medium-sized property with 47 hectares of vineyards in Pessac-Léognan, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. The Cabernet-dominated red wines are soft, well structured and packed with smooth, ripe fruit which makes them very attractive young, though they also possess good medium-term cellaring potential. Bought by the dynamic Bordeaux merchant Dourthe in the 1980s, this gem of an estate displays the true Graves minerality underneath an exuberant cassis-and-plums aroma. After huge initial investment in the vineyard and cellar immense care is now lavished upon the wine itself, and any re-assessment of the Pessac-Léognan classification would surely see this wine elevated to Cru Classé status
