Vinous 88 points – The 2015 Haut-Surget (Merlot) is dark, plummy and nicely balanced. Black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, new leather, spice and licorice are nicely pushed forward in this ripe, racy Lalande-de-Pomerol. Drink it over the next few years.
James Suckling 93 points – Rich dark and ripe plums with sweetly spiced earthy aromas. The palate has assertive plump fruit presence amid smooth, curvaceous tannins that wrap neat into the finish.
