Reviews and Ratings
|Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
From Reserve des Remparts, located on the right bank of Bordeaux, the Saint-Emilion Calvet Collection 2015 shows classic aromas of dark cherry, plum, green grass, rose, dark chocolate and cedar. Full bodied with medium finish, this young Calvet Collection 2015 offers tart plum, red cherry, tobacco, earthy note, pepper and oak. Nicely balanced, this wine will gain silkiness if kept for a couple of years. Enjoy.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
An approachable example of Saint-Emilion from Calvet. 2015 has been the first solid vintage since 2010, so it os time to be excited about the entry level Bordeaux again.
Some nice toast oak aromatics. Fresh cherry amd plum. Tart snappy finish. Medium bodied and good to go with a flank steak tonight. Drink soon.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Grippy and tannic, subtle cherry and plum with oak and smoky notes. Medium bodied, nice acidity. Enjoy with a steak or other protein to stand up to the tannin in the wine.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Rather rustic with plum notes on nose and palate, but the tannins are somewhat overpowering. Pair with rare steak.
Tasted May 2018
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
The grippy tannins of this Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend demand a rare steak pairing. More vegetal notes than fruit. Tasted May 06, 2018.
