The 2015 de Pez shows a much darker side of Saint-Estèphe in its rich, enveloping texture. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and menthol flesh out as the 2015 shows off its racy, succulent personality. This is a decidedly riper, more opulent style than that at Haut-Beauséjour, the Rouzaud family's other Saint-Estèphe property. In 2015, the Pez is a wine of real depth, intensity and pedigree. The blend is 51% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Château de Pez is a blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 51% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, matured in one-third new oak, the rest in one- and two-year-old barrels. It has a bold and generous nose of kirsch and blueberry, quite high-toned, but perhaps lacking some complexity underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. It is nicely balanced, gently grippy in the mouth with a harmonious finish, but what it lacks is the persistence on the finish that would have nailed it as a great wine. Drink this over the next 10-15 years. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Solid and powerful St.-Estèphe with chewy tannins and lots of dark and ripe fruit. Shows no dilution. Structured. Precise. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

This has a ripe yet soft core of plum and cherry fruit backed by a wet earth hint. Pretty, but lacks a bit of vivacity in the end. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Roederer property. A bit more energy than stablemate Haut-Beauséjour. Lean and lively. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2032

Comparatively forward for a St Estèphe, possibly because of the diluting effects of the rain, but this is still an impressive effort from the Roederer team. Pure and focused, with liquorice and berry fruit flavours, stylish oak and a nip of tannin. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2026
