2020 Château Tour Bayard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 92

Black raspberries, flowers, licorice and espresso crowd the perfume. Medium-bodied, soft, fresh and fruity, with a ripe, black cherry, cocoa, licorice and blackberry character, this polished wine is going to be easy to enjoy in its youth, yet it should age for 12-15 years as well. 91-93 Pts

2020 Château Tour Bayard L'Angelot  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 92

Dark in color and fruit, the wine is ripe, lush and concentrated with a meaty, savory character. There is length, rocks, stones, assorted herbs, licorice, smoke and a rustic charm in the finish. Let this age for 6 years or so, and it will be a lot of fun to drink. As it is made from close to 100% Malbec old vines, it is a cool wine to bring to a blind tasting. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château Tour Bayard L'Angelot  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 90

Dark in color, with equally dark fruits, and even darker chocolate all over the place, the lushly textured, round wine serves up a lot of fleshy juice. Lush, round, dark, juicy, ripe, sweet, fleshy cherries surrounded by licorice and chocolate in a forward style, and for a fair price! You can drink this young. 89-91 Pts

2019 Château Tour Bayard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 90

Silky, lush, round and rich, with layers of ripe, deep, sweet red and black pit fruits and licorice that keeps on going. This hedonistic, well-priced gem will be delicious on release and offer pleasure for at least a decade. 89-91 Pts

2018 Château Tour Bayard L'Angelot  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 93

Dark in color, the wine is earthy, spicy, rich, lusciously textured and character driven. Mouth coating, long, fresh, full-bodied and fully packed with peppery, deep red fruits, this is one of the cooler wines I tasted from 2018 due to its unique blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Merlot. Not much is made, so look out for it if you can find any. 93 Points

2016 Château Tour Bayard L'Angelot  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 91

One of the very wines produced from 100% Malbec in Bordeaux, the wine is inky in color with purple accents. The wine is meaty, spicy, peppery, dark and dense. The wine really keeps on going on your palate and in the finish. 91 Points

2015 Château Tour Bayard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 89

From a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the wine is forward, plush and polished, delivering a sweet, juicy, mouthful of black cherries, licorice and mocha in an easy to like, forward style. 89 Points

2014 Château Tour Bayard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 86

Medium-bodied, fully-mature, early drinker with round textures and a licorice and dark red plum character. Pleasant, but not much complexity. Subsequent vintages show a lot of improvement. 86 Points

2010 Château Tour Bayard L'Angelot  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 88

It is fun tasting older vintages of this 95% Malbec from Bordeaux. Mature, full-bodied, rich, spicy, robust, and cherry-filled, with spicy, peppery, herbal accents accompanying the dark red fruits, this is ready for its prime time window. 88 Points
