The 2015 Lalande-Borie is an attractive, mid-weight Saint-Julien to drink over the next handful of years, while the fruit retains its freshness. This is an especially lithe, feminine Saint-Julien built on grace more than power from iron and sand-rich soils on the western side of the appellation. The blend is 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Lalande-Borie is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot. Picked from 26 September until 2-3 October, it has a surprising bouquet: high-toned and exotic for the vintage, very intense cassis and iodine aromas, perhaps needing just a little more complexity to come through, though I am sure it will by the time of bottling. The palate is more controlled at the moment, restores order as it were. The tannins are quite dense, lending weight to this Lalande-Borie, the acidity is nicely judged and the finesse finally comes through towards the finish.

A solid red with dark berry and wet earth aromas and flavor. Full body, chewy tannins yet polished and balanced. Serious concentration for the vintage for this estate. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. pH 3.8.'I think this year we have finally found a style for this wine', says Bruno Borie. 'Fresh nights in June and July protected us in summer.' Mid crimson, even a little light. Very sweet and perfumed. Floral. Light and lacy. A little too sweet for my taste. 13.49%. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2032

Fine perfume and fruit purity. Lots of polish and no heavy tannins to get in the way. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2019-2026

Something of a bargain at Ducru-Beaucaillou, this comes from sandier soils in the west of St. Julien and is correspondingly lighter in style. Smooth and attractive, this is sweet and appealing but with good underlying tannins and acidity. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2026
