The 2015 Les Tourelles de Longueville offers lovely focus and intensity from start to finish. Lavender, mint, violet, spice and dark cherry nuances abound. A dollop of Petit Verdot in the blend adds aromatic brightness on the finish and a sense of direction that is impossible to miss. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Les Tourelles de Longueville is a blend of 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot that will be aged in 70% one-year-old barrels and 30% new wood. Harvest was between 18 September and 9 October, the fruit mainly from the "Sainte-Anne" terroir. It has a winsome bouquet in the making, almost Margaux-like with its hints of wilted violet petals coming through. The oak is nicely integrated here, as it is on the palate, medium-bodied with fine, saturated tannin, well-judged acidity and impressive depth on the tensile finish. An impressive Les Tourelles that, as always, has one eye on commercial appeal. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2038

A fresh and very clean red with blueberry, blackberry and dark chocolate undertones. Medium to full body, fine tannins that give a soft texture and roundness. Mostly merlot gives this a friendly style. Second wine Pichon Baron. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Very bright crimson. Some real savour on the nose. Very polished and flattering with some firm tannins on the end. Early maturing, but clearly cosseted and benefiting from some very fine oak. Just a hint of sourness on the end. Dry tannins. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2030

Further proof that this was an excellent vintage for both Pichon properties, Pichon-Baron’s second wine is leafy, fresh and finely judged, with classic Merlot plushness leading the dance. Granular tannins and a leafy undertone add an extra dimension of complexity. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2026
