A small proportion of this rounded wine has been wood aged. That has produced some fine tannins aligned with the berry flavors. It is a fruity and ripe Merlot-dominated wine, full of juicy acidity at the end.

Owned by a member of the French supermarket Leclerc family, this estate in the Entre-deux-Mers has produced a smooth wine that is polished from new wood, while also having layers of intense black-currant fruits. It is rich although fresh acidity counterbalances the density. Drink from 2022.

The 2015 Peyrabon has a perfumed bouquet driven by the 51% Merlot, crushed strawberry and redcurrant aromas neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, good density towards the finish that delivers an attractive spiced aftertaste. This is very fine and should drink well for a decade.

Bright ruby hue, with tones of garnet beginning to appear on the rim. On the nose, lifted notes of fresh vanilla, red and black cherries, dried peppermint, black raspberries, and violets. Full-bodied, but not imposingly so, with a New World boldness and freshness. Big, grippy tannins with a great deal of power are balanced by fresh acidity and a nice concentration of flavor on the palate. The elegant finish alternates between sweet oak spices and the pure-fruit character. Drink now–2030.

The 2019 Goulée by Cos d'Estournel is an intensely savory, aromatic Médoc. Tobacco, spice, cedar, mint, dark cherry, licorice and incense all grace this mid-weight wine. Silky tannins round things out in style. The 2019 is a charmer. Drinking 2024 -2034
