'This medium-bodied, extroverted wine can be consumed as an apéritif or in lieu of dessert over the next 10 years. Interestingly, the 15 Ans d'Âge Prestige contains the same amount of residual sugar as its 10-year-old sibling, yet comes across as totally dry. It reveals intense candied nut aromas and flavours reminiscent of sweet cigar tobacco, cedar, and hazelnuts. It is medium-bodied, has outstanding balance, as well as a silky-textured personality. Drink it over the next 10 years.'
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
'The Mas Amiel Maury 15 Ans d'Age L439 - bottled in February - mingles chocolate syrup and cocoa powder with nutmeg, praline, and dried cherry. This displays the soothing polish missed by the 10-year, yet it reveals a remarkable degree of freshness and invigoration thanks to high-toned inner-mouth volatile esters that convey lift and acidity, as well as to persistent berry skin tartness. The uncanny juxtaposition of oxidative and fresh elements here is at the heat of its appeal. This would be an excellent batch of Mas Amiel 15-year to look for and cellar, not that it will improve (nor will it decay) in bottle, but because it is a particularly successful blend.'
