Notes

Tasting notes:
'Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Teyssier (a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc) gives up lovely black and red cherries notions with cinnamon stick, fragrant earth and potpourri nuances. Medium-bodied and fresh with a satiny texture, it's earthy and elegant in the mouth with a perfumed finish.' – Wine Advocate, 90/100

'The 2015 Teyssier is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc picked from 21 September until 8 October, the Cabernet picked from 9-15 October. Matured in 20% new oak, it has a sweet red cherry and blueberry scented bouquet that is lifted nicely by the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet red and black fruit on the entry. There is a pastille-like purity here, nicely balanced with a smooth and seductive finish. You can really see the wide commercial appeal of this well-crafted Saint Emilion. It will drink earlier than others, but should give ten years of drinking pleasure.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 88-90/100

'Dark crimson. Rather sweet, dried-fruit aromas. But then there is freshness and this is an appetising whole. Just a bit of candy aromatically.' – Jancis Robinso, 17-/20
