The 2015 La Grave is a powerful, intense wine with plenty of fruit and equally imposing tannins. Far from an easygoing Pomerol, the 2015 is going to need time to fully meld together. Today, it is the wine's persistence that is most impressive of all. The style is powerful, earthy and ferrous. There is no shortage of personality or character, that much is obvious. La Grave is 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

Greatest La Grave for me. Fantastic depth of fruit and power yet so silky and fresh. Bright light energy to this. Mostly Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Well-packed, with fleshy fig, boysenberry and blackberry paste flavors that pump through, underscored by a warm charcoal note and a tug of earth that develops as this opens up. This hasn't integrated fully yet, but will be especially solid when it does. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Jean-Pierre Moueix wine. 9 ha (22 acres) of gravel and fine clay. 91% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc. Deep crimson. Heady and rather compelling on the nose. Some lift and sinew. Not dramatic or flashy but very comfortable to drink. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2035

Fresh and refined rather than opulent. Palate is bright and suave with the freshness lingering. Ripe, firm tannins give length on the finish. Harmonious. Should be good value and will age. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2032
