This is a ripe, fruity wine that is initially so smooth in character. The tannins move in slowly to give just the right amount of structure to sustain the black currant fruits and ample acidity. The wine's overall balance suggests a promising future.

A powerful, authoritative wine, the 2015 Le Prieuré offers notable depth and nuance for such an intense wine. Leather, smoke, tobacco licorice, huge deep, intense and powerful, but also with remarkable detail. A wine of elegance Le Prieuré states its case with finesse rather than sheer power. Jean-Claude Berrouet now consults for Le Prieuré, which is owned by the Goldschmidt family and François Pinault's Artémis Group.

The walnut, spice and ripe berry character comes through clearly here with full body, medium tannins and a fresh finish.

The 2015 Château Le Prieuré is more understated on the nose than its peers - gentle raspberry coulis and wild strawberry scents furnished a touch of fig. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin. There is a lucidity to this Saint Émilion, a brightness and vivacity, and it comes armed with plenty of energy and a finish that suggests a prosperous future. This is an excellent Château Le Prieuré from the Guichard family and I might head for this rather than their Pomerol, Vray Croix de Gay this year.
