The 2015 Lusseau is a bold, powerful wine full of the intensity of the vintage. There is no shortage of power, but freshness proves to be more elusive, as the flavors are a bit roasted. Dark cherry, plum and tobacco are some of the signatures. It will be interesting to see if the 2015 finds a bit better balance during aging. The 2015 is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Lusseau has a rich and opulent bouquet with crème de cassis and blueberry aromas, pure and ebullient, perhaps one of the best I have tasted in recent years from this estate. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity, quite refined with supple, silky smooth black and red fruit caressing the finish. This is worth seeking out - a Saint Émilion that strongly suggests it will have a surfeit of class once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2039

Owned by Pavie's technical director. Just 13.8% alcohol. Good freshness on the nose. Medium weight and concentration and the better for it, in my humble opinion. Quite sinewy. 13.8%. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2030
