Wine #61 James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of 2015

The violets and blackberries show wonderfully on the nose here, yet this remains subtle and complete with hints of walnuts. Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins and a beautiful fruit and mineral undertone. Tight and substantial. So layered. Another example of finesse and beauty here with this pure merlot. Better in 2018. James Suckling

The 2013 Galatrona pretty much sold out in pre sales before it's official release last year. The quality is outstanding and the Merlot grape offers a heightened sense of sharpness and focus in a slightly cooler vintage such as this. Galatrona exhibits a plush and rich bouquet that is embellished with soft cherry and blackberry nuances followed by spice, sweet tobacco, chocolate and crushed granite. The wine is amply fleshed out and generous. It offers an incredible sense of overall balance and irresistible drinking pleasure. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

Very pure, very lacy, featuring black cherry and black currant aromas and flavors. Lean, a bit angular even, with an underlying mineral element. Very young, taut and long, this shows fine balance, but will need time. Tasted non-blind. Best from 2024 through 2043. - BS, Wine Spectator
