The grapes from the 2015 vintage were magnificent and fermentation took place quickly. The wines immediately showed plenty of colour and a complete array of very intense aromas ranging from red and black fruit to spice and incense. The tannins are generally very well-rounded, dense and seamlessly smooth. After blending, the wines still have the same aromatic intensity and complex, full-bodied structures which barrel-maturing should further enhance. The cvhateau liken the 2015 vintage in Pauillac in its heft and opulence to the 2005 vintage.
