Tastings of the 2015 vintage with James Suckling: great scores for our red wines!

In January, James Suckling and his team came to Bordeaux to taste the 2015 red wines, evaluating some 1,300 wines over a two week period. Their notes were published in early February.

According to Suckling, "The 2015 vintage has a wonderful potential in every sense of the word".  The 2015s from Vignobles André Lurton are no exception, and garnered some excellent scores!

Aromas of oyster shell, currants and berries follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and an intense finish. Shows depth and layers. Very attractive. Drink in 2022.

Another very polished and refined Pessac with chocolate, berry, stone and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, integrated tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a couple years to come completely together but already so good. Drink in 2020.

Some mellow red berries, plums and fresh leather on the nose here. It delivers a punchy bright palate. Acidity is a highlight. Drink now.

Attractive violets and dark flowers with plums and blueberries lead to a palate that has quite an assertive shell of forthright tannin. Good length, too. Try from 2022.

Lovely spice and chocolate character to this fruity and firm red. Excellent from the appellation. Medium to full body. Juicy finish. Drink in 2020.
