The 2015 Chapelle-Lescours is based on 80% Merlot and aged in 33% new oak, in foudres rather than barrels. It offers dark berry fruit mixed with cola on the nose that takes a bit of coaxing from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, crisp blackberry and boysenberry fruit, cedar and graphite with a precise, almost Pauillac like finish. What's not to like here?

This is very minerally and salty with lots of dried fruit and wet mushroom character. Full and structured. Small production from 3 hectares. Mostly Merlot. Look out for it. Apr 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot. 2 ha on sand and gravel. The second wine and sister property to heavily accented L'Évêché. Dark blackish ruby. Mild-mannered on the nose with sufficient freshness. Very dark purple. Sweet palate entry with some rather grainy tannins on the end. Only just enough freshness for the sweetness. Needs quite a bit of time. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2030
