“A generous, dramatic but forthrightly tannic St.-Estèphe that has enough cassis fruit, smoke and minty freshness to easily carry this structure and still come off energetic at the long, refreshing finish. Drink or hold.”

“Another Roederer-owned St Estèphe property at the time, although it was sold to the owner of Laffitte-Carcasset in 2017. It displays good quality plump, fresh red fruits, fairly restrained at first but slowly building alongside the tannins - you can feel those black spices and red fruits beginning to uncurl. Wait a few more years before opening.”

“Quite a savory and light wine for St.-Estephe, this is rather easy to enjoy now. Don’t worry though — there are some of the typical dry tannins for this appellation on the finish. Drink or hold.”

“The 2015 Haut-Beauséjour has turned out beautifully. Wild and powerful in the glass, the 2015 exudes energy in all of its dimensions. There is a wildness to the 2015 that is compelling. Specifically, the Haut-Beauséjour has a level of aromatic nuance and detail that distinguishes it from so many wines of the vintage. Tobacco, earthiness, smoke, gravel and incense add character to this mid-weight yet potent wine. There is more than enough complexity to reward a decade plus of very fine drinking. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot.”

“Another Pichon Comtesse estate up in St-Estèphe with a lovely ripe fruit expression. There are some tight, austere tannins right now, and the wine is a little less immediately exuberant than some, but give it a few years in bottle to flesh out. 62% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot.”
