2015 Bordeaux: The Good News

"First, the good news: 2015 is an extraordinary vintage for the communes of Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Fronsac, Graves and Pessac-Léognan. Growing conditions in these areas were pretty much ideal for achieving grapes of full phenolic maturity, great poise and profound signatures."

Where are the bargains in 2015?

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.

This is nicely pitched in terms of richness and ripeness, showing depth and freshness. A hallmark of this great vintage. Aromas and flavors of red and dark cherries with floral and fresh, berry pastry notes. There’s a lot to like here. Drink or hold.

The 2015 Cap d'Or, Jean-Philippe Janoueix's Saint-Georges Saint-Émilion, is terrific. Plump and juicy on the palate, with terrific aromatic presence, the 2015 hits all the right notes. All the elements are impeccably balanced. There is no shortage of depth or nuance in this racy, bold wine.
