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)

The 2015 La Garde has quite an intense bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow and light gravel aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, crisp acidity, quite angular and abrasive at the moment with a little attenuation on the finish. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

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)

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
