"The 2015 Château Brondelle has a lifted, floral bouquet with wild strawberry and cranberry scents that shows impressive detail. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, packed full of crisp, minerally red berry fruit and hints of bay leaf and white pepper towards the finish. This is an excellent red Graves from Château Brondelle that should give pleasure over a decade or more."

"The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

"A knockout wine, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers dazzles from the very first taste. Racy, powerful and voluptuous in the glass, with tons of textural resonance, the Brothers captures all the best qualities of the 2015 vintage. Time in the glass brings out the wine's inner perfume, with hints of espresso, chocolate, grilled herbs and red cherry jam that add nuance to the sepia-toned flavors. The tannins need time to settle down, but the 2015 is impressive, even in the very early going."
