Château de Pitray 2015
The 2015 Château Pitray has a well-defined, precise bouquet with blackberry and crushed strawberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, not much depth here, but very well balanced with a silky smooth finish. This comes highly recommended, since it is usually well priced.

The top cuvée from this admirable property. 75% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec. Notably dark purplish crimson. Already rather well integrated nose (from a sample taken 10 days ago and sent across the Channel). Very spicy. Pretty dry finish but obviously appetising and velvety. 2020 - 2026
