Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and anise give the 2015 La Serre its distinctive lifted personality. An especially fragrant, mid-weight Saint-Émilion, the 2015 will appeal most to readers who enjoy lighter, more gracious wines. Today, the oak is a bit prominent, which reinforces my overall impression that the 2015 is lacking in depth. La Serre is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Serre, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, has buoyant red berry fruit on the nose - lively and nonchalant. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, well-judged acidity, very harmonious with impressive fruit concentration towards the velvety finish. I often feel that La Serre is overlooked at en primeur, but this is a valuable contribution to the JP Moueix stable this year. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Features a very ripe, friendly core of raspberry and blackberry fruit, though the frame of singed alder is a bit taut. If that fades into the fruit, this will be a pleasant charmer. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Clay limestone. Ruby. Very sweet and opulent on the nose. And then lots of Cabernet Franc refreshment kicks in. Nothing dramatic - very different from the St-Émilion norm - with some herbiness. Interesting but low key. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2030
