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

Bright ruby in colour, with a bright and youthful nose of red cherries and plums. Soft and yielding on the palate,this is supple and plump, the tannins already melted into the wine and allowing the fruit to shine. Pure cherry fruit and a hint of sweet spice drive the wine through to the finish. Drink now or over the next 5 years.
