Critic Reviews:
“The 2015 Teyssier is a fabulous introduction to Jonathan Maltus's wines. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and dark spice, along with the wine's natural lushness, give the Teyssier much of its immediacy and allure. Flamboyant an inviting, with impeccable balance, the 2015 has so much to offer, including a very appealing proposition of price and availability. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc." 91/100 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)

"Dark crimson. Rather sweet, dried-fruit aromas. But then there is freshness and this is an appetising whole. Just a bit of candy aromatically." 17-/20 (jancisrobinson.com)

Food:
Classic Bordeaux combinations (roast beef or lamb, for example) certainly work but because of the up-front style of the wine it can take on a wide range of foods.

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
