In particular, there is a huge amount of value to be had this vintage coming out of Fronsac, Saint-Émilion (especially grand cru level), Pomerol and their satellites as well as Pessac-Léognan. Apart from the fact that they enjoyed a pretty much ideal growing season, it is clear that these ACs have not been sitting on their laurels in recent years, and the amount of effort they have invested to up their games truly shines like a beacon this year. Sommeliers, restaurateurs and beverage directors around the world should have a field day purchasing 2015 wines from these areas at very reasonable prices and in abundance. As mentioned in my style comments above and below, stylistically there is something for everyone, and the quality across these areas in 2015 is reliably consistent.

Spices and dark fruit with decadent earth and white-truffle aromas. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a fruity finish. So velvety and delicious. Second wine of Monbousquet. Drink in 2020.

A plush, voluptuous wine, the 2015 Angélique de Monbousquet shows quite a bit better from bottle than it did from barrel. Espresso, mocha, plum, chocolate, licorice and dried herbs emerge from this racy, opulent Saint-Émilion. The 2015 is not especially complex, but it is flat-out delicious and also a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years.
