2015 Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Village Pessac-Léognan
Classification Cru Classé
ABV 15.1%

58% Merlot, 35% Cabernet sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc. Nose is much dumber than the Chapelle. An enormous sense of richness on the palate, completeness, very grand, like a Louis XVIV in all his most voluminous finery. Can be held in the mouth for ages, all dark velvet plush. Gorgeously ponderous. Rating: 94-95 L&S (Apr 2016)

Rose petals, sandalwood and currants with some plums and fruit tea. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Incredibly straight and minerally. Toned muscles here. Tannic. Traditional and unwavering. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 100 James Suckling, (Feb 2018)

Marking a huge contrast with the cooler, more graceful 2014 (which I prefer), this is a muscular, even monumental red: tannic, concentrated and a little pruney. It teeters on the edge of excess, but it is pulled back by its acidity. I will watch how it ages with interest. Drinking range: 2025 - 2035 Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, (May 2016)

58% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. Picked from 9 September to 1 October. Very dark and glamorous-looking. Fairly dumb nose but obviously great weight and intensity. A big brooding monster! Massive charge of tannins. Big and pretty alcoholic on the end. Not very communicative at the moment. Lots of palate-tanning tannins. After a while in the glass, a whiff of cordite emerged. Sorcery?! Drinking range: 2030 - 2050 Rating: 18.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Apr 2016)
