Chateau la Fleur des Rouzes Pomerol 2015

RATED 93 JAMES SUCKLING : 'Attractive aromas of mixed summer berries and violets, as well as fresh earthy nuances. The palate has a smooth, cool-fruited core of plum and dark-berry flavor. Smooth layered and long tannins.' Chateau La Fleur des Rouzes is a micro-estate located near Chateau Clinet in Pomerol’s exclusive district, known as ‘the plateau’. A family property for 100+ years, the estate is comprised of only 2.8 hectares (7 acres) of vineyards and the production is only about 500 cases. Made in a classic Pomerol style, the wine is from 26-year-old vines of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in complex soils with gravel, silt, iron and sandstone.

Chateau Cantenac-Brown BriO de Cantenac Brown 2015

v 90

RATED 90 VINOUS : 'The 2015 BriO de Cantenac Brown shows just how rich the second wines of Margaux are in this vintage. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, violet, menthol and spice give the 2015 much of its succulent, inviting personality. The ripeness and richness of the vintage is very much front and center. 88-90' Classified as a Third Growth in 1855, Cantenac Brown is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc on a 100 acre vineyard with complex gravel soils.  The first wine of the estate is collected across the globe by savvy Bordeaux enthusiasts, and typically trades for $80-100 per bottle. Although a classic, historic estate, Cantenac Brown is also modern in its thinking. They created a new wine in 2001 named: BriO de Cantenac Brown, with a beautiful label, and high quality inside the bottle, made from 100% estate grown fruit. Made from the younger vines, Brio is an elegant, fruit-driven wine which may be consumed in its youth, or cellared for up to 7-10 years from the vintage.
