Château Lyonnat 2015 (91 JD)
“The 2015 Château Lyonnat is a brilliant blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 18 months in new barrels. It offers loads of chalky minerality to go with classic Merlot dark fruits, dried earth, and graphite aromas and flavors. This medium to full-bodied beauty is terrific today, yet I suspect it will keep for 15+ years.”
