The 2015 Les Grandes Murailles shows its typical flavor profile, but, as is the case with so many wines this year, everything is ampled up. Blueberry, plum, crème de cassis and lavender abound. Les Grandes Murailles is typically a bit more lifted and ethereal in style, but in 2015 it is quite a bit fleshier and also less aromatically expressive than is typical. The 2015 is a big Grandes Murailles that is going to need time to shed some baby fat. I imagine it will always remain on the exuberant side of things. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

They 2015 Grandes Murailles has a very high-toned bouquet that offered backed cherries, a touch of eau-de-vie and griottes. The palate is sweet on the entry with lithe tannin. There is a lot of new oak to be absorbed here, a seductive Saint Émilion...but I wonder whether there is the substance and personality behind it? This can be a great wine, but I need to see how this performs in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2028
