The 2015 La Prade offers lovely energy and minerality behind the fruit, which gives the wine its distinctive tension. Graphite, violets, plum an black cherry notes are woven together nicely in this vibrant, salivating Francs - Côtes de Bordeaux. This is a decidedly tense style for the year, but it works. And quite nicely. La Prade is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc mostly from the limestone plateau. Tasted next to Puygueraud, from the same appellation, La Prade presents a more focused expression of fruit. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Prade is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc picked between October 1-13 at 40 hectoliters per hectare. This has a lively, generous bouquet with plenty of blackcurrant, briary and almost minty aromas soaring from the glass. The palate is quite grainy on the entry, reserved and more masculine than the nose suggests, with a linear and structured finish suggesting that this Francs Côtes de Bordeaux will give drinking pleasure over the next ten years. This is worth seeking out. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2030
