The 2015 Duo de Conseillante has a fragrant bouquet, somehow light-hearted and very fresh, with lively red cherries and strawberry fruit, strangely not a million miles away from a fine Pinot Noir! The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, a keen line of acidity, not a "deep" Duo de Conseillante, but well balanced and conveying Pomerol character with great clarity, touches of truffle and smoke lending personality on the finish. The 60% new oak is barely recognizable. This comes highly recommended and it should end up at the top of my banded score. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2028

The second wine of Conseillante is spicy and rich with lots of fruit and smoky character. Full and savory. Big and juicy. Best ever Duo. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

88% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, from a sandy plot not that close to the château. Meant to be early-drinking. 60% new oak, higher than usual. pH 3.7. Lustrous crimson. Moderate nose. Then very sweet, almost jammy, nose. Fresh finish with just a little oak evidence. The considerable tannins are not quite fondu (melted). You'd have to wait a little for this. 14.5%.

A change of winemaker has resulted in a slight shift of style here, towards plumper wines in 2015. This is a firm, youthful, textured blend that’s ripe, but not over-ripe with appealing (60%) new oak, some graphite and green pepper and nice balance. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
