This packs a serious core of fig, blackberry and black currant fruit, along with dark tea, ganache and smoldering tobacco leaf notes. The finish is carried by loamy, well-embedded tannins, with a great tug of warm earth providing the final seduction. In many ways the wine of the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2028.–JM

This is very tight, showing a prominent roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa frame more today, though the core of dense currant paste, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce waits in reserve. Gorgeous singed spice, anise and toasted fig bread notes flitter through the finish, though this needs some time in the cellar to resolve itself fully. A very distinctive, structured expression of St.-Emilion. Best from 2016 through 2035. –JM

The plum and black cherry fruit has a floral edge, giving this version an elegant feel overall, while subtle tobacco, singed tea leaf and wood spice notes fill out the lengthy finish. This lovely wine has dropped serious muscle since the barrel tasting and is showing elegance and finesse that belies its age. Best from 2015 through 2025. 8,330 cases made. –JM
