Average critic rating : 90.83 points



The 2015 Winemaker's Collection Saison 10 (Alain Raynaud) is deep, powerful and fleshy, with striking textural richness and overall finesse. Inky dark/purplish fruit, grilled herbs, menthol and licorice are fused together in a deep, virile wine with enough depth and pedigree to drink well for a number of years. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 offers notable freshness. This is a super classy, refined wine from Alain Raynaud. The blend is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Alain Raynaud is the winemaker in charge of the 2015 The Winemakers' Collection No 10, following from Dany Rolland last year. It has a crisp honeysuckle and lime-scented bouquet, not intense, but precise and already appealing. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry, with a twist of sour lemon on the entry to get the taste buds flowing, then vibrant green apple, gooseberry and pear furnishing the finish. This is a well-crafted white Bordeaux from "le docteur". Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2017-2025



Alain Raynaud made this edition. Dark purple. Headily perfumed. Real concentration of fruit results in something a little brutal at the moment, but it certainly won't be weak! Slightly drying tannins on the end but a full-on attempt at attention-grabbing. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032
