La Garde’s excellent Graves offers up plenty of smoky barbecue notes intermixed with raspberry, black cherry and a touch of graphite. This is a medium-bodied but nicely concentrated wine and certainly qualifies as a sleeper of the vintage, given its realistic pricing. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Drink: 2013 - 2021.

Powerful and chewy with loads of dark fruits and currant leaf. Full and velvety. Loads going on. Biodynamically produced. jamessuckling.com

Solid, with a juicy core of crushed plum, cherry and blackberry laced with nicely integrated toast and spice. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Dark crimson.Very attractive fresh fruit on the nose. Really savoury and luscious. There’s a middle charge of fruit here, which is lacking on many others. Though it is not that dense. Nice easy drink that seems to have been fairly heavily extracted. Pretty rich and intense for a Pessac-Léognan.jancisrobinson.com

Densely-extracted black fruits, slightly briary with good energy and depth, high quality northern Graves with a good future. Drink 2015-22. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

La Garde Utilizing 62% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, with a perfume of smoky blackberries and soil, this medium bodied wine offers round textures and finishes with a cassis and a hint of chocolate. This wine should offer pleasure early. winecellarinsider.com

This is a thickly textured full-bodied wine with ripe plummy fruit. It is a well made La Garde with juicy, plummy flavours made for early term drinking. This vintage has more generous of both flavours and tannins. Modest finish. asianpalate.com
