La Tour Melas 2015
(La Tour Melas Grand Vertical, hot September that was even warmer than August, 857 mm of rainfall, 56% CF, 44% M, 75% new oak, 4.600 b). Outstanding effort packed with Cab Franc vibrancy outlined by mint and cassis. Refined yet also loaded with abundant but perfect tannins and long lingering finish. The most exotic of the ten vintages.
