The 2015 Vieux Château Mazerat is another super-ripe, dark, powerful Saint-Émilion. There is impressive density in the glass, but like all of the 2015s here the Mazerat is lacking in freshness and energy. It will be interesting to see what happens as the wine goes into bottle.

The 2015 Vieux Château Mazerat, which you could view as Jonathan Maltus' "second in command" after Le Dôme, is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc picked on October 6 and 12 respectively, and matured in 80% new oak. It has a tightly wound bouquet with black cherry, bilberry and cold stone, a floral note emerging after a minute in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied but there is more fatness and density here compared to Jonathan's other 2015 single parcel offerings from Le Pontet and Le Carré. Plenty of "rondeur" here, perhaps because the pH is just a little higher, the finish well balanced, clean and fresh. I look forward to retasting this in bottle.

Soft and delicious young red with plum and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

This has some heft, thanks in part to a wall of toasty vanilla and ganache, yet there’s ample density to the core of plum and currant fruit. The tannins are velvety, as per the vintage. Just need to see if this can handle its oak. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Jonathan Maltus (Le Dôme) wine from a parcel touching Angélus. Fine, opulent texture masks a big tannic frame. Powerful and long on the finish. A strapping wine that should age. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2035

Old vine Cabernet Franc and Merlot are a winning combination in what Jonathan Maltus regards as his best vineyard. Serious, dense and well structured, with compact, concentrated tannins, masses of blackberry and damson fruit, a hint of spice and a chalky finish. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
