The 2015 Cantelys emerges from Daniel and Florence Cathiard's sister property in Pessac-Leognan. Savory and earthy in style, with good overall depth, the 2015 is a solid choice for drinking over the next handful of years. Iron, herbs, tobacco and dark stone fruits add nuance to this pleasantly rustic red. The heat and the stress it caused comes through in the wine's mid-weight personality, angular tannins and slightly roasted profile. Cantelys is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot.

The 2015 Cantelys is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. It has a ripe, showy bouquet that blossoms with blueberry and violet scents, a smudge of boysenberry jam underneath. The palate is sweet on the entry, quite high toned with licorice infusing the slightly grainy-textured dark plum, figgy finish. It has an easy-going charm but respectable structure underneath, so give it a couple of years in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2025

A refined and elegant barrel sample with blackberry, black currant and spice character. Full body, integrated tannins and a medium finish. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Delightfully fresh, with bright plum and raspberry coulis flavors racing along, lined with subtle juniper and floral notes. Picks up tarry grip on the finish. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot. Owned by Smith Haut Lafitte and situated 3 km south of Smith. Dark crimson. Sweet fruit. Relaxed and gentle. Easy peasy. Good charge of tannins. Not complex but everything is there. Exotic and rich. Lots of drama but nothing in excess. GV. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2037

A wine to buy in good vintages like 2015, because you get Fabien Teitgen and Daniel Cathiard's winemaking at reasonable prices. Tightly coiled, firm tannins and highly powered dark cherry fruits. Just a touch short, but this may be the early oak influence. Promising. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 20% new oak. Apr 2016, Jane Anson, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2035
