Denis Durantou's 2015 Saintayme emerges from vineyards in Saint-Émilion's Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse sector. Soft contours enshroud a core of black cherry, plum, espresso, mocha, dried herbs and new leather. Dark, sumptuous and positively alluring, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Another year or two in bottle should help the oak (30% new) integrate a bit more fully. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 Rating: 89 Antonio Galloni, (Feb 2018)

Sourced from sandier soils, this is a Merlot for Merlot lovers: sweet, supple and fruit-packed, with ripe tannins, stylish cinnamon oak and undertones of liquorice and Asian spices. Great value, too. Drinking range: 2020 - 2028 Rating: 91 Tim Atkin MW, (May 2016)

Dramatically dark crimson. Very opulent nose. Pretty aromatics. Very flattering sweet palate entry but something a little suggestive of a dry cinnamon stick on the finish. Pretty dry. Shame because the start is so charming. Just 30% new oak, apparently. Drinking range: 2021 - 2029 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Apr 2016)
