2015 Château La Commanderie  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Forward, medium bodied and already deceptively ready to drink, the soft textured, red fruits, licorice and floral character stands out. The wine can age for a decade or longer, but it's easy to enjoy this charmer on release. 90 Points

2011 Château La Commanderie  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 85

2009 Château La Commanderie  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Earth, spice and cherries make up the perfume. Soft tannins and round textures are found in the sweet, black cherry and cocoa finish of this crowd pleasing, style of wine that will show best in its youth. This is showing much better than it did when it was tasted in barrel. 89 Points

2001 Château La Commanderie  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 85

Light in color, fruit and style, the fruit is already beginning to slowly fade. Fresh, bright, red berries, red plums, earth, tobacco and olive notes are driving this medium bodied wine. Drink up, as it is not going to improve from here. 85 Points
