2015 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint Emilion

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites
Village Saint Emilion
Classification 1er Grand Cru Classé

Tasted at the UGC, it was one of the better made wines, that is certain, round and ripe at the entry, like so many this year, it does have a bit of glossy distinction to the blackberry pie fruit, and this does round out the tannin build to the finish and it is not to aggressive, but that it is still not all that succulent or shapely. At Stéphane Derenencourt's tasting (for he is the consultant oenologist), it showed significantly better, softer and easier, with just a tiny touch of sweetness and a more grown-up dry cool feel and more length. The 'score' is based on the second tasting. Rating: 92-93 L&S (Apr 2016)

The Cabernet Sauvignon is always a key feature of this wine, and it’s the case again here in 2015, providing structure and backbone. This is a little closed, but has the intensity, limestone-derived freshness and sheer class to age well in bottle. Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (May 2016)
