"A stylish array of chocolate, earth and dark berries leads to a palate that follows in the same vein of flavors with blackberry compote. The finish is cast amid plush, open-knit tannins. Great depth here. Try from 2022."

"Mulled plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit glides along singed vanilla and sandalwood notes. The silky, black tea–infused finish is relatively open-knit, with a light tarry echo for added spine. Best from 2019 through 2028. 4,167 cases made. — JM"

"The 2015 La Gurgue has turned out very nicely. Pliant, forward and supple, the 2015 offers quite a bit of near and medium term appeal. Sweet red berry, tobacco, menthol, licorice and crushed flowers add nuance that was not evident when I tasted the wine as a barrel sample."
