Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2015 L’If, the sibling of Le Pin, of course, has a high-toned iodine-tinged bouquet with floral scents emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, gentle grip, nicely structured with an attractive cedar- and black-pepper-tinged finish that shows more weight and density than its peers. It is a little heady but it is still well crafted. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. [Neal Martin, 09/07/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035

JancisRobinson.com – 17/20

Tasted blind. Intense and spicy and zesty with real energy and not too much exaggeration. My fellow tasters criticised it for being too stalky and high-acid and not tasting of Le Pin! [23/01/2019]

Robert Parker – 92

The 2015 L’If is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this year and it was matured in around 50% new oak. It has a very ravishing and opulent bouquet with macerated small red cherries, blueberry and a hint of powdered chocolate, probably from the new oak, and that seems to quickly dissipate. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a pinch of white pepper, nicely structured and showing great style on the finish. "That’s bloody good," commented Fiona Morrison behind me, and I would not disagree. In fact, over five to ten minutes, this Saint Emilion gained precision and harmony. This is a strong follow-up to the 2014, although let’s wait until bottling to see if it is better. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032
