Château-Haut-Beausejour St. Estephe 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
Wine Enthusiast90-92. Barrel Sample. This wine is spicy, ripe and gently textured. With hints of stalkiness, the black currant fruits are light and crisp with a squeeze of blackberry juice coming through. It is more about fruit than structure.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Haut-Beauséjour is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. It has a tightly wound, slightly subdued bouquet that just feels a little static in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, quite fine tannin, well balanced and detailed with truffle and cedar-infused black fruit. It might lack the substance of its counterparts south in Pauillac, yet I still consider this to be a well-crafted wine that should offer a decade of pleasure.
