Chateau La Garde 2015
93 Points James Suckling
Deeply intense, almost black and purple-tinged in colour, offering a complex, intense nose exuding roasted, smoky notes. Supple on the attack, the wine rapidly develops generous mouthful defined by lovely, expressive fruit, concentration and depth, underscored by delicate tannic structure; very smooth, despite the intensity. The appealing harmony is echoed in the long, flavorsome finish.
Blend: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
James Suckling - 93 Points
Violet, dark-berry and stone aromas follow through to a medium to full body. Linear and very fine. Tight and fresh. Precise and beautiful. A serious young red. Drink in 2022.
Wine Spectator - 91 Points
Solid, with a youthfully tight core of juicy blackberry and black currant paste flavors, wrapped with brambly grip and backed by twinges of tar and anise on the finish. Needs a touch of cellaring to unwind fully.
