Robert Parker 91 points – Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Lestruelle offers red plum and crushed strawberry on the nose, slightly diffuse at first but gaining harmony with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit, succulent in the mouth with lovely purity on the caressing finish, one that disguises the structure underneath. Don’t overlook this fine Médoc that is both approachable but will age with style. — Neal Martin (Tasted September 2017)
Vinous 88 points – The 2015 Lestruelle is a plump, juicy wine with lovely depth and resonance. Sweet red cherry, plum, tobacco and licorice add shades of nuance to this open-knit, attractive Medoc. Drink it over the next few years. The blend is 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Sauvignon.
