French Cross-Regional 2015 Red Case

Case of 6
0 star rating 0 Reviews
One of the many benefits of being a member of The Wine Society is that, as a member-owned co-operative with no external shareholders to please, we can buy fine wines on release and mature them in the ideal conditions of our cellars until our buyers are satisfied that they are at their best. Now, with a new name – Museum Release – we’ve put together a global exhibition of a vintage that shone in wine regions around the world: 2015. Six years on, many are open for business and a joy to drink, as illustrated by this selection from across France.

Wines included

2019 - 2022

Chinon 'Les Cornuelles', Domaine Serge et Bruno Sourdais 2015

From Bruno Sourdais' oldest vines in a fine, healthy but structured vintage, this offers fresh, fragrant black fruit, now complemented by the start of savoury development, firm backbone and length of flavour.

2018 - 2025

Crozes-Hermitage 'Les Pierelles', Domaine Belle 2015

A perfumed and finely grained northern Rhône syrah with violets, ripe plum and herbal notes on the medium-bodied palate and a lovely long finish. Ready to enjoy now, especially if allowed an hour in a decanter.

2019 - 2026

Lacoste Borie, Pauillac 2015

The second wine of Grand-Puy-Lacoste and one of the best-value Pauillacs you will find. Made in a friendly, approachable style, this blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 10% cabernet franc is supple, fleshy and attractive.

2019 - 2026

Massif d'Uchaux Côtes du Rhône Villages Vieilles Vignes, Château Saint Estève 2015

A splendid barrel-aged Rhône made from 50-50 grenache-syrah. This is full-bodied and richly flavoured in the outstanding 2015 vintage, packed with fig, blackberry, black olive and spice. Perfect with a Sunday roast.

2019 - 2028

Montpeyroux, Domaine Aupilhac 2015

An outstanding, full and complex Languedoc red. Carignan is an important element but there is also grenache, syrah and above all mourvèdre, which really leaves its mark. Best decanted an hour before serving.

2017 - 2023

Pinot Noir V, Muré 2015

V stands for Vorbourg, one of 51 Alsace grands crus but which, for the time being at least, does not apply to pinot noir. While still young in this fine vintage, it is beginning to open up to some secondary aroma and flavour complexity to complement its dark cherry fruit and sweet, silky texture, better revealed in a decanter.

2017 - 2022
