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.

The 2015 Taillefer is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc aged for 12 months in 50% new oak. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a broody nose with dark fruits, earth, licorice and black pepper notes. The medium to full-bodied mouth is packed with muscular fruit, with firm, chewy tannins and a lively lift to the earthy finish.
