Dark, jet-plum velvet appearance that displays pure fruit immediately on the nose. Cassis, berries and spiced, candied fruit with good concentration and an attractive focus, depth and length. Showing a clear energy and intensity at this early stage, the meticulous fruit selection and winemaking has resulted in a wine that really captures the imagination - atypical yet stylish, fresh and pure with a protracted, layered finish.
"This is an impressive wine from a much-improved estate. It has all the right elements of ripe berry fruits, some firm tannins and fine acidity, combined into an elegant, balanced package." 93 points, Wine Enthusiast
"An array of baking spices and toasty oak sits across dark-cherry compote and chocolate. The palate has a smooth, sturdy tannin frame and good depth of dark-fruit flavors. Try from 2020." 92 points, James Suckling
"The 2015 Château de Lamarque is a smokin’ good Haut Médoc and well worth checking out. Offering full-bodied richness and a plump, forward, hedonistic style that makes you want to drink a glass, it gives up lots of ripe plum and black cherry fruit as well as more spice, violets, and earth with time in the glass. Drink this sexy 2015 over the coming 5-8 years." 90 points, Jeb Dunnuck
