2015 is an outstanding Bordeaux vintage, and in particular it was stellar for merlot on the right bank. The BHW direct import model sourced and landed this wine at a real steal. With 35+ year old vines, this wine sees about 15% new French oak with another 15% in 1 year oak. The combination of oak and vanilla with fresh, bright fruit makes for a wine that is delicious now and will have ageing potential.

Blend: Merlot 75 %, Cabernet Franc 12 %, Cabernet Sauvignon 13 %

Reviews

Fragrant and elegant in spite of its firm tannic core, this has some real complexity, too. Good now, but just wait to see where this goes from 2020! ~92JS
