"Not nearly as oaky as this wine used to be, it has generous, ripe, dry tannins with enough bright black-fruit character to balance things out. Better from 2019 and at least a decade of potential after that."
91 William Kelley - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Haut-Marbuzet has turned out very well, offering up aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, sweet spices and smoke, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping palate that's framed by supple, powdery tannins. Seamless and charming and already nicely integrated, this rather precocious vintage can already be approached with pleasure, even if it has two decades' evolution ahead of it."
