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.

Perfumed dried herb, almost like lavender, red fruits, earthiness. Medium bodied showing attractive balanced acid and light chewy grip with some stony/graphite like character and a clean finish. Not very long, admittedly, but satisfactory. Typical style, good vintage and a thoroughly enjoyable drink. Pretty much spot on at the price point.
