    Drink, drink and be merry with this bottle of 2015 Bordeaux Supérieur, a wine that effortlessly balances the freshness and purity of the plummy black and red fruits with wet earth, spice, toast and ultra-smooth tannins. Easy to like, and even easier to buy at this remarkably low price, pleasant proof there really is an everyday Bordeaux out there….er, right here.

    Aromas of truffle and crushed flowers lead to a middle of sweet and jammy black raspberries. This is smooth and effortless with wonderful freshness throughout and a clean, fine finish. This early release from a spectacular vintage is one to buy by the case.

    A great buy from the fantastic 2015 vintage, this wine offers one a peek at why there is so much excitement about 2015 Bordeaux. It has a full body with nice dark fruit flavors and is balanced and structured. It is enjoyable now and will go well with hearty foods.

    Plum fruit peppered with rich coffee notes, lovely lift, and enough violet to make this traditional Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend reminiscent of earthier Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Loyasson is an unbelievable value from a celebrated vintage that's surprisingly ready to drink now. I’ve already taken home more than one bottle of this delicious, nuanced Bordeaux.

    This is a tremendous wine for such low price. Coffee notes on the nose along with Violette, plums with nice toasty oak and a sweet palate. Very pleasing, and yet very complex. A preview of the fantastic 2015 vintage!

    Think inexpensive Bordeaux that is actually good is impossible to find? Think again. This is a balanced and approachable wine with plenty of dark red fruits, a hit of earth, freshness, and tannins that are easy on the palate. From the superb 2015 vintage come many gems, this one being a top pick for me in this price category. Definitely a case-worthy purchase.
