The 2015 La Patache is ripe, racy and forward with good overall depth and juiciness. Although not the last word in complexity, the 2015 offers plenty of near and medium-term appeal. Plum, black cherry, hard candy, violet and sweet spices add nuance on the racy finish. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from 25 year-old vines in Pomerol's Clinet district. This is a solid effort from La Patache and proprietor Peter Kwok. Michel Rolland consults. Apr 2016, www.vinous.com

The 2015 La Patache is the 2.5-hectare vineyard owned by Peter Kwok that is close to Château Clinet. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, there is a citrus-like freshness on the nose - hints of marmalade intertwined with the red and black fruit, the 30% new oak neatly embroidered. The palate is medium-bodied with a chocolate-tinged entry, well balanced and quite spicy. I find there is a little abrasiveness on the finish, though hopefully that will soften and find more cohesion through its élevage. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Licorice, black raspberry and wet earth on the nose lead you to a medium-bodied, soft wine with a fresh, sweet, dark plum and cocoa finish that has some persistence. Clearly, this is the best vintage the team has produced of La Patache. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.thewinecellarinsider.com
