The 2015 Ampélia is a juicy, attractive wine that will drink well upon release. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and mint give the 2015 much of its up-front appeal. I would prefer to drink the 2015 on the young side, while the fruit retains its juiciness. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Ampelia is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from the same team at Grand-Corbin Despagne. This has a lovely nose, very pure and generous, well defined with floral-tinged blackberry, raspberry and cold stony scents. The palate is well balanced with fine, grainy tannin, a little foursquare on the entry, but plenty of fruit backs this up. Plenty of freshness with a pencil lead finish, this should be a delicious Côte de Castillon once bottled. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Despagne property. Very dark. Very rich. Almost forced! Big and bold. Lots concentrated into this rather dramatic wine. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2029
