92 Points - James Suckling
"The aromas to this are complex with hazelnut, cloves and currant character. Full body, firm and silky. Polished and focused. Shows lots of tannins and hints of new wood still. Needs a year or two to come together. Blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc."

"Indigo color. Perfumed aromas and flavors of rose tea, rosehip jam, cherry relish, cedar, licorice, sweet buns, and spearmint with a lightly tannic, vibrant, dryish medium body and a nuanced, medium-long finish with firm tannins and moderate oak flavor. Layers and layers of flavor to explore in this delicious and elegant Saint-Estèphe."

"The 2015 Grand Esprit Saint-Estèphe is a compelling blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, with 5% Cabernet Franc. Anise, crème de cassis, leather with damp soil lift the nose. The palate shows off a silky texture and a plush mouthfeel. Medium-bodied, with light tannins, the wine unveils flavors of dark currants, milk chocolate covered cherry and sagebrush. Showing nice character, this should continue to age nicely over the course of the next fifteen plus years."
