wine enthusiast 90 pts"A purple-colored, young wine dominated by Merlot, this is rich, structured and full of blackberries. With a good balance between the fruit and the tannins already in place, it shows excellent potential. Drink this already delicious but still firm wine from 2022. - ROGER VOSS"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Based on 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, the 2015 Chateau Brule Secaille Grande Reserve Cotes de Bourg spent a year in 40% American oak, with one-third being new. Black fruits, spicy oak, underbrush, and cedar notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced 2015 that has solid mid-palate depth and ample fruit. It’s a fleshy, charming effort that has loads of character."

wine enthusiast 89 pts"This ripe, rounded wine is just setting out on the aging process. Still showing its wood-aging spice, it also has black-currant fruits and balanced acidity. It will develop well over the next few years and should be ready to drink from 2021. - ROGER VOSS"
