The 2015 Moulin Riche is dark, plummy and absolutely delicious. The more fruit-driven, supple side of Saint-Julien comes through in an attractive, forward wine endowed with terrific depth and plenty of personality. The 2015 is not a big wine, rather it is built on a core of juiciness, with sweet floral and spices notes that round things out nicely. Best of all, the 2015 should drink well early.

The 2015 Moulin Riche is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 20 hectares of vine located further inland than those of Léoville-Poyferré. It has a sumptuous, quite rich bouquet with Morello cherry, raspberry coulis and mineral scents. Didier Cuvelier has managed to find impressive purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, a robust and forthright Moulin Riche with plenty of depth and "guts" towards the finish, even if it does not quite deliver the finesse of other Saine Julien wines. Afford this 5-6 years in bottle. This should turn out to be a "hearty" wine. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2021-2045

A flavorful red with plum and sliced berry character. Full body, medium tannins and a clean fresh finish. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Pure red and black fruits of good earthy richness and weight; will gain elegance. This is not a second wine of Léoville-Poyferré but a separate vineyard. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2028

Deeply coloured, ripe and richly oaked, this is a serious, slightly figgy wine with firmish tannins and a chalky undertone. The alcohol seems a little higher than it is, such is the sweetness of the fruit flavours. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2025
