Good full red. Redcurrant, mocha and cedary, smoky oak on the ripe nose, with a hint of peppery lift. Lush, ripe and concentrated, offering a dense, thick texture for this wine and a hint of salty herbs. Nicely subtle and perfumed in the mouth. Finishes with suave tannins and sneaky length. A sleeper of the vintage, for drinking over the next 15 years.

This blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the best wines to yet come from this estate, owned by the proprietors of Pichon Lalande in Pauillac. Juicy, succulent, cedary black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, herbs and spice box are very pure, authoritative and substantial. Dark ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied and delicious, this wine should be drunk over the next 10–15 years. A sleeper.

A solid core of fruit in this young claret, with blackberry and chocolate character, medium body and medium finish. Dense and straightforward.

Fresh, with a floral edge leading the way for gentle red currant, plum and tobacco notes. A twinge of iron marks the finish, but this stays rounded and gentle. Almost too easy in the end. Drink now through 2016.
