2015 Bordeaux: Every Bottle Tells a Story… (Feb 2018)

The 2015 Ampélia is a plump, juicy Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later, while the red cherry and pomegranate flavors remain vibrant. My sense is that with a bit less oak, Ampélia could be a meaningfully better and more interesting wine.
