2015 Trianon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1256388 91 points James Suckling

 Although this isn’t a particularly powerful 2015 St.-Emilion, it’s still very young. Lots of fresh red- and black-fruit aromas and crisp acidity prepare the scene for the long, clean finish. Very attractive now, but it should be better in 2019 and 2020.  (2/2018)

90 points Vinous

 The 2015 Trianon is absolutely delicious. Silky, perfumed and impeccably balanced, it has much to offer. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar and herb notes add lift and perfume with noticeable Cabernet overtones. This is very nicely done. The blend is 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carménère. (AG)  (2/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Very juicy, with lots of loganberry, blueberry and plum reduction flavors pumping through, inlaid with brambly grip that is well-absorbed, backed by lively licorice and apple wood notes. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JM, Web Only-2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Château Trianon has a high-toned bouquet that calms down with aeration to offer black plum, mulberry and spicy aromas that are neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of grippy tannin, assertive in the mouth, but requiring more tension and finesse to come through on the slightly bitter finish. (NM)  (4/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
