The warm 2015 vintage in France produced very approachable wines with particularly generous, attractive, plush fruit flavours. This lovely young claret is no exception, especially now that it has spent a couple of years in the bottle. A blend of about two-thirds merlot and the rest cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, this gorgeous plummy red is balanced by savoury flavours of earth and coffee, and a dark sour-cherry lick of complexity. Superb value.
