James Suckling’s top scores for Bordeaux En Primeur 2015
The best Péby I have ever tasted. The purity of fruit and density is fantastic yet it remains bright and floating. It’s full yet agile. Perfect tannins. Pure merlot magic.
château valandraud st-émilion A fabulous Valandraud with verve and distinction. So much bright blackberry, mineral and dark chocolate character. Full and ultra-silky texture. Powerful and balanced finish. Greatest Valandraud ever.
château suduiraut sauternes A phenomenal white with dried fruit such as apricots and mangos. Masses of botrytis spice. Full body yet agile and bright with incredible lightness and delicacy. So much cherry blossom too. Great finish.
château pape clément pessac-léognan Shows amazing depth of fruit with fabulous polish and length. Electric acidity. Full body, very integrated and refined tannins. Phenolic finesse shows here. Great finish. It lasts for minutes. Best young Pape Clément I have tasted. Grows in the glass.
château smith haut lafitte pessacléognan This is a very polished and precise young wine with beautiful depth and intensity. Full and sexy. It shows blueberry and blackcurrant character with walnut and chocolate undertones. The tannins have a lovely texture. Joy to taste.
