The 2015 Clos de Vieux Taillefer offers plenty of up-front intensity and overall depth. Most of the wine's appeal is in its forward fruit. There is a bit less complexity and overall nuance. This is a decidedly ripe style and yet there is just enough freshness to keep things in balance. Scents of violet, mint, plum and licorice nuance throughout. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Clos Vieux Taillefer has a slightly muted bouquet at first with iodine and blackcurrant pastille aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with dense, tarry black fruit, moderate acidity, but a rather sullen finish that needs more joie-de-vivre to come through by the time of bottling.

A full, soft and velvety red with lots of dried fruits and chocolate character. Savory and beautiful. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Rather raw on the nose - unlike most 2015 Pomerols! Thick and sweet on the palate. Really rather soupy overall. I'd like a little more lift and expression. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2028

Always made with 100% Merlot, this is a wine that could have done with a dash of Cabernet Franc freshness in 2015. It’s plush, rich and textured, with firmish tannins, plenty of toasty oak and a broad finish. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
