Tasting Notes

85% Merlot/15% Cabernet Franc. First impressions are focused on fresh fruit, a lovely nose of red and black berries that still retain a certain crunchiness. On the palate, there is remarkable precision as well as a creamy texture, a charming combination. The ripe Merlot marries beautifully with the more alert Cabernet Franc and it’s the quality of the tannins that really mark out the success of the vintage. There is impressive structure and energy and on the finish, the wine showing excellent balance. This is certain to age well despite being delicious already. Best ever? drink 2018-2025+.

Reviews & Scores

The 2015 Grand Village is a soft, open-knit wine to drink young, while the fruit retains its juiciness and attractive floral freshness. Raspberry, sweet red cherry and sweet floral notes grace this attractive, mid-weight red. The 2015 is a very pretty, precise wine with almost Pinot-like inflections.
88-90 Points, Antonio Galloni

74% Sauvignon Blanc, 26% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Fragrant and pure with pin-point precision. All in length and line. Floral, citrus aromas. Delicious fruit but again controlled, the finish pebble-sucking and saline. Atypical white Bordeaux. Could be burgundy – Puligny? JR
