Domaine du Bouscat's top cuvée, the Les Portes de l'Am... boasts off the charts level of richness. Mocha, super-ripe cherry, plum and smoke race out of the glass. Today, the 2015 shows some elements of new oak from the barrel fermentation, but it is stunning, especially at this level. Unctuous, flashy and unapologetically opulent, the 2015 hits all the right notes. This is a fabulous showing. Les Portes de l'Am... emerges from a one-hectare parcel of 40+ year-old vines in owner François Dubernand's property. The blend is 50% Merlot, 25% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Franc.

The 2015 Les Portes de l'Am is the top cuvée, a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Franc that was handpicked on October 2 at 16.2 hectoliters per hectare from the oldest vines, then fermented in 320-liter to 600-liter barrels. It has a gorgeous bouquet, very pure and sensual, yes, the new oak dominant at the moment, but it is neatly embroidered into the very pure fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous tannin, the oak very well integrated, well structured, smooth and again, sensual rather than sexy. Seamless towards the finish, it will probably be early drinking, but has the substance to age. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2030

This is amazing with such depth of fruit and beauty. Full body, velvety textured and a long, long finish. Impressive concentration and backbone. Apr 2016, www.jamessuckling.com
