The 2015 Hostens-Picant is a powerful, hearty wine with good overall depth and intense, burly tannins to match. This bold, fruit-driven red is best enjoyed at the dinner table. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc from limestone and silex-rich soils. Simon Blanchard consults since 2004 for Derenoncourt Consultants. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

I often prefer the top cuvée (Cuvée Lucullus) from this château to the regular release, but it’s the other way around in 2015. This is fragrant, grassy and well structured with good depth, notes of graphite and plum and very suave tannins. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2018-2025
