Probably THE best value Pomerol 2015s that we tasted! Tasted at the Union de Grand Crus tasting when they visited Singapore for an exhibition to showcase their 2015 vintage. Only 24 bottles available. Whilst stock lasts.

Excellent intensity, great balance and most importantly good acidity to balance the ripe and intense black fruits. Really well done! Blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. We are really pleased that the wine critics agreed with us. They rated it highly! See below. 

'The 2015 La Cabanne is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Proprietor François Estager told me that this was the first vintage were he has not used any sulfur (one of a few that are moving in that direction). Tasted on three occasions, the nose is offers brambly black fruit mixed with wild hedgerow and cold stone, certainly more sophisticated than recent vintages, with impressive purity. The palate is built upon fine grain tannin, well-judged acidity, and is nicely proportioned with the fruit, given lift by the new oak on the finish. I suspect that the aromatics were just having an off day; given the performance of the palate and knowing how fine this Pomerol can be, it should turn into a delicious, perhaps relatively approachable Pomerol that will give a couple decades of pleasure!'

'Back to the depths of fruit that we saw in the 2009 and 2010 vintages, this is a clear success. There is a gorgeous texture, rich ruby raspberry fruits alongside coffee and toffee notes, firm tannins and a dash of chocolate shavings. As is so often the case with La Cabanne, it is packed with Pomerol signature. 55% new oak. Drinking Window 2022 - 2040.' Decanter 95 pts
'A dense and rich red with ripe fruit and plenty of muscles. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Enjoy the berry, orange peel and cedar undertones in the wine. Best ever? Needs at least four or five years to come together.'  James Suckling 95 pts
