2015 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of blackberries, blueberries and spices. Hints of limestone and a graphite edge also come out now. Full-bodied, structured and muscular. Layered and intense. Dark berries and hints of sea salt on the finish. Steely minerality and freshness. Wow. Drink in 2024 but so interesting to taste."

2015 Cap de Faugeres, Côtes de Castillon (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "Attractive and neatly focused raspberries and red plums with a very supple, polished and succulent palate that delivers plenty of flavor in a refreshing, sturdy frame. This offers plenty. Drink or hold." (2/2018) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I tasted the 2015 Cap De Faugeres on three different occasions and it rated outstanding on two of the three showings. Offering lots of darker fruits, truffle, and leafy herbs aromas and flavors in a medium-bodied, rounded, forward and sexy style, it should impress for upwards of a decade. One bottle had a fair bit of reduction, so don’t be afraid ...Read More »

2015 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Beautiful dark and bright fruits with blackberry, blueberry and licorice aromas that follow through to a full body and round and lightly chewy tannins. Gorgeous texture. A long and flavorful finish. All here. Best ever. Drink in 2022." (2/2018) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Siran is a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot picked between 17 September to 12 October. It is raised in 25% new oak plus one-year barrels. It is a little richer and more opulent than its neighbor, the 2015 Dauzac, due to the higher proportion of Merlot.

2015 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022." (2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Pavie Macquin is positively stellar. A veritable explosion of super-ripe red cherry, rose petal and mocha makes a strong opening statement.

2015 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A legendary wine in the making from the Delon Family is the 2015 Leoville Las Cases and there are very few wines more impressive in the vintage. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Merlot, this full-bodied, tight, super-concentrated, focused 2015 boasts an awesome bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, charcoal, lead pencil, and minerality.

2015 Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Very polished and poised with an immensely powerful core of tannin that drives incredible length on the palate. Fruits are deep in the dark-berry spectrum, encapsulating a terrific sense of freshness through the finish. Great wine. Try from 2024." (2/2018) 96 points Decanter: "I loved this at en primeur, and again it is fully delivering on its promise. It has a high proportion of Cabernet Franc for a Pessac Leognan wine, which can make it a bit austere early on, but it has now had two years to fatten up. Layers of chocolate enrobed tannins and dark bilberry and cassis fruits m ...Read More »

2015 Monbousquet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A rich and round wine with beautiful fruit and chocolate, meat and berry character. Full body and a juicy finish. Hard not to drink now as it’s so delicious. But wait. Drink in 2020 onwards." (2/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, expressive, slightly showy style, with waves of cassis, creamed raspberry and boysenberry fruit racing forth, backed by a polished yet ample structure. The long, licorice- and ganache-framed finish packs on weight as it moves along, yet stays defined and pure. Impressive. Best from 2022 through 2040.

2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Beau-Sejour-Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 5-17 October, matured in 70% new oak barrels. It has a seductive and sensual bouquet with dark berries, blackberry and a subtle marine influence - kelp, perhaps brine. The palate is very smooth, satin-like tannin accompanied by a fresh line of acidity. Harmonious, almost sultry in style and yet there is plenty of freshness on the caressing finish. What a gorgeous Beausejour Bécot. To quote 1980s chanteuse Sade - this is a 'smooth operator.' (N ...Read More »

(2/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure. It is the fruit that sings here, gently supported by the fine, dusty tannins.

2015 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "One of the finest Pauillacs of 2015, Lynch-Bages is rich, racy and voluptuous. A rush of dark red and purplish stone fruit, mint, new leather, spice and blood orange give the 2015 a very decidedly exotic character that is impossible to miss. Raspberry jam, mocha, new leather and expressive floral notes appear with time in the glass, rounding things out nicely. Even though the 2015 is quite forward and open at this stage, the wine has plenty of stuffing as well as the underlying structure to support many years of exceptional drinking.

2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "The 2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou is phenomenally great. Inky, powerful and explosive, the 2015 pulses with energy in all of its dimensions. Creme de cassis, blackberry jam, graphite, smoke, leather and incense, along with the wine's muscular tannins, convey an impression of brooding intensity. The 2015 has been nothing short of sensational on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. Readers should be prepared to be patient. Don't miss it!

2015 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is powerful, structured and explosive in feel. A deep, resonant wine, the 2015 boasts off the charts ripeness allied to formidable structure and tannic heft. I imagine the 2015 is going to need a number of years to become approachable and more than that to be at its best. The dark stone fruit, smoke, tobacco, spice and leather flavors pack a huge punch, but it is the wine's balance that places it among the elite on the Left Bank in 2015. Brane-Cantenac is a total pleasure bomb. I can't wait to taste it with a little bottle age. (A ...Read More »

2015 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine of total finesse. Much less obvious and overt than most Saint-Émilions in this vintage, La Gaffelière makes its case on harmony and grace above all else. Bright, lifted Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics give the 2015 striking freshness and aromatic presence. The flavors are bright and nuanced to the core, with plenty of red cherry, espresso and floral notes. But back to the basics. In 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine that stands out because of its impeccable balance and sense of proportion. I loved it. Tasted two times. (AG) ...Read More »

(2/2018) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While this wine is rich, it has a classical demeanor, with fine tannins that support but never dominate the ripe black fruits.

It is poised and balanced, with lots of impact and well-extracted, not afraid to push things, but pulls back at the end. 60% new oak. (JA)" (11/2017) 95 points Vinous: "A rich, exotic wine, the 2015 Cantenac Brown is simply stun ...Read More »

2015 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Lots of cedar, tea-leaf and hazelnut character and ripe fruit aromas. Citrus peel, too. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Smoky undertone. This is structured and so complex. Drink in 2023." (2/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A straight up smokin’ red from this vintage is the 2015 Château Gazin and it’s a big, powerful, stacked 2015 that’s for those with patience. Made from almost all Merlot (I think it’s 100%), my notes on this beauty start - and end - with “love it.” Cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, forest floor, and tons of minerality all soar from ...Read More »

2015 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This rich wine is full of fruit and structured with layers of tannin. It’s also stylish and elegant, with a suave texture that is already attractive. Black fruits mix with the structure to give a wine that will age well. Drink from 2026. *Editors’ Choice* (RV)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "This is an effortlessly elegant and classy Margaux. Real structure where the tannins hold without being intrusive, close to the 2015 in quality. They have new cellars here, so lots to look forward to over the next decade as they really begin to benefit from the extra precision. Extremely c ...Read More »

2015 Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Decanter: "With a smudge of soft oak on the nose, this is big and ripe in its expression, a beautiful wine that has the balance and polish of a classic Pessac. It's austere and needs time to open, but shows how Pessac has come of age in 2015 - an appellation where you are picking some of the best qualities of both left and right banks; luscious and generous but still with elegance. This for me has really dug in during ageing and has put on layers. (JA)" (3/2018) 94 points James Suckling: "Blackberry and plums sit amid violets, earthy notes and gentle, hazelnut oak. The palate delivers attracti ...Read More »

2015 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Some graphite and toasted spicy fruits, which create an impressive opening. Iodine and dark berries follow. The palate has a similarly spicy start, which builds waves of fine, ripe tannins that hold impressively fresh and deep. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 90 points Vinous: "One of the standouts of the vintage, the 2015 Sociando Mallet is all finesse. Light on its feet, gracious and super-expressive, the 2015 speaks to class above all else. The flavors are bright and beautifully lifted in this polished, sophisticated Haut-Médoc. Although a touch light, the 2015 is very pretty. T ...Read More »

2015 Carbonnieux Rouge, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The firm tannins in this wine are dense and concentrated, ripe rather than dry. The fruit and juicy acidity give the wine richness and crispness at the same time. It has a great future. (RV)" (4/2018) 93 points Decanter: "This delicious wine impressed during en primeur, and still does - it's one of the best wines ever produced here, with succulent, fleshy but restrained black fruits and good balance. It's not one that you will have to wait forever to uncork. (JA)" (3/2018) 93 points James Suckling: "The dark berry and iodine aromas are fascinating with bark and black tea undertones.

Try from 2022." (2/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Villemaurine is blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged in 70% new and 30% one-year-old oak barrels for 16 months. Medium garnet-purple in color, it is scented of crushed black cherries, mulberries and blackberry preserves with cedar chest and rose hip hints.

2015 Lagrange, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the furthest west of the St-Julien estates, this property has been greatly improved with investment from Japanese owner Suntory. The wine from 2015 is dense and impressively concentrated, perfumed black-currant fruits working well with the crisp acidityand solid structure. Drink from 2025. (RV)" (12/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Anyone who thinks that modern Bordeaux has become too soft or easy should taste this seriously tannic yet sleek and vibrant wine. So much drive and energy that the weak of heart should better stand back. Better from 2020 and has a couple of decades ...Read More »

Goes on for minutes. A superb wine with great fruit. Real Bordeaux. Try in 2025." (2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "Proprietor Alfred Tesseron and winemaker Jean-Michel Comme produced an absolutely stellar Pontet-Canet in 2015.

2015 Giscours, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This firm wine shows the tannic side of the vintage. Those tannins are dusty, enriched with black-currant fruits and a dense backdrop. The wine is concentrated and elegant, very ageworthy and not likely to be ready before 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "Plenty of violets and dark berries on offer here. This has a striking sense of purity as well as an energetic, regal palate. The structure is impressively groomed with effortless depth and length. A standout wine. Try from 2022."

2015 Haut-Brisson, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "This is the best Haut-Brisson ever showing ripe dark plums and chocolate on the nose, which is so seductive. The palate is all about the silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Full body, gorgeous fruit and a complex aftertaste. So precise and impressive. Texturally complete. Drink or hold." (2/2018) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The new wood flavors are strong here. They go with a minty character and bright acidity. The wine is dry and concentrated, with a firm core as well as juicy black fruits. It is beginning to balance well.
