Chateau Poujeaux, 2014

Moulis (Medoc) Cru Grand Bourgeois

The 2014 Poujeaux is a subtle blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. These grape-varieties wonderfully express on this late harvest wine, in Moulis as well as in other Medoc municipalities. The 2014 Moulis of Chateau Poujeaux offers an expressive, delicate and complex nose. The latter gives off intense black fruit and Morello cherry aromas, but also more floral notes. On the palate, the attack is supple, the wine is dense and the tannins are silky. The 2014 Poujeaux drinks well thanks to great complexity, good finesse and good persistence. This Moulis is a classic.

Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal, 2012

Pauillac 5th Growth Classification

From the excellent 2012 vintage, this has a typically rounded, almost voluptuous bouquet that is so typical of the growing season, with notes of wild strawberry, tobacco and a touch of hot Bovril. The palate has a rounded entry, the once hard tannin now softened and savoury towards the finish.

Chateau Batailley, 2011

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification

Brilliant, vibrant, with an almost electric precision on both the nose and palate, Ch. Batailley’s 2011 is delicious, even in its youth. It has poise and elegance with lovely fresh blackcurrants on the nose and fine raspberry and blackberry fruit on the palate, mingling harmoniously with an earthy minerality. One to cellar.

Chateau Cissac, 2011

Medoc, Cru bourgeois

*** 85 Points (Excellent) - Robert Parker ****
*** 88 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews:

"TA solidly made wine from proprietor Vialard, this dense ruby/plum-colored 2011 reveals austere tannins, but good depth, ripeness and fruit, and a solid, masculine-styled character. Drink it over the next decade." Robert Parker

"Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. The Cissac 2011 has a sweet ripe bouquet with dark cherries, raspberry and a faint scent of bergamot in the distance. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that are quite fine, although the oak is just a little too dominant at the moment.

Chateau Giscours, 2011

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification

*** 91-93 Points - Neil Martin ***
*** 88 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews
"…A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by juicy black cherry and black currant fruit notes, a velvety texture and a supple-styled Margaux that consumers will enjoy. It is not a big, powerful, concentrated wine, but it is well-balanced and cleanly as well as correctly executed. This is a stylish, sensual Margaux to drink over the next 10-12 years." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 2012.

"The Giscours 2011 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The nose is fleshy and ripe with lifted strawberry and raspberry aromas, the oak present but well integrated.

Chateau Haut Beausejour, 2011

Saint-Estephe Cru Bourgeois

This is the little brother of Château de Pez. Blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 59% Merlot and a clear, purple ruby colour. The nose is fruity and spicy, fresh on the attack, and then evolves on a powerful structure, caused by fine, ripe tannins. Nice balance where the fruit and spices dominate and a great finish with a velvety, fleshy mouth.

With supple, firm tannins, this wine has the austerity of the vintage but the flavours are soft and round with no harshness or rough edges.

Chateau Montrose, 2011

St Estephe Second Grand Cru classé

*** 89 + Points Robert Parker ***
*** 89-91 Pts *** Neil Martin Wine Journal.

Reviews: The dark ruby/purple-colored, slightly austere and angular 2011 Montrose possesses a more masculine style with firm tannin, medium body, and cassis, black currant and earth notes. The wine tails off slightly on the palate leaving an acidic, tangy character. It will benefit from several more years of cellaring, and should last for 15+ years thereafter. Robert Parker Erobertparker.com 2014.

Chateau d'Armailhac, 2010

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification

Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, has a hand in the wines of Chateau dArmailhac, creating from 2010's wonderful harvest a wine of proud perfume, vibrancy and concentration. The 70 hectares of vines are set on deep gravelly soils from which excellent Cabernet Sauvignon is the star. Alongside the preferred grape, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot accompany and enhance - planted at extremely high density (10,000 vines per hectare) the fruit is harvested and vinified traditionally to create this refined and deeply satisfying wine style.

Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild, 2010

Pauillac 4th Growth Classification

*** 96 Points - Robert Parker ***

Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of back currants and licorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years.

If you can’t afford Lafite-Rothschild (few can)or even their second wine, Carruades de Lafite, you still have Duhart Milon, which has become a profound wine over the last 5-7 years due to the extensive amount of attention and investment the Rothschilds have pumped into this estate.

Chateau Durfort Vivens, 2010

Margaux 2nd Growth Classification

The colour is a bright, intense, dark purple with glints of violet. The dense, complex bouquet offers a harmonious combination of notes of minerals, spices, very ripe dark fruit, liquorice, incense and white lilies. On the palate, the attack is smooth and dense. There is a remarkable balance between minerality and sweetness. The wine's power is steady and well-structured. This exceptional vintage has a full-bodied, distinguished, elegant character. Due its balance and complexity, this is a wine that will improve for age for many years, and provide a subtle accompaniment to many fine dishes.

Chateau Lafon Rochet, 2010

St Estephe 4th Growth Classification

*** 90 Points - Robert Parker

Chateau Lafon-Rochet has smooth tannins, beautiful balance, a silky texture, and is altogether sensual. Just as grandma's old apple tree at the bottom of the garden has tastier apples, grapes from old vines product wine with more flavor and concentration. Although they produce less, their fruit reflects the terroir more faithfully. Lafron-Rochet is both simple and complex, with black fruit aromas in most vintages. It exemplifies a smoothness and expression unique to Saint-Estephe, as well as a certain warmth and elegant roundness due to the Merlot grape.

Chateau Langoa Barton, 2010

St Julien, 3rd Growth Classification MAGNUM

Please note that this is a MAGNUM format (1.5litre)

**93 Points - Robert Parker **

Exceptionally fragrant this year, this Ch. Langoa Barton wine displays enticing aromas of both red and black fruits. The fruit continues strongly on the palate, but the wine retains a very fine elegance, while the tannins and acidity imbue it with an excellent structure, and there is excellent persistence and length on the finish.

Reviews: Very good extraction of supple, succulent ripe fruit, a beautifully lifted and long palate, the length and harmony of a great Langoa Barton wine.

Clos Manou, 2010

Medoc

The 2010 Clos Manou is Dark red, impressively big, yet structured, energetic but not overly acidic and rather sophisticated for a Medoc A. C. Nose of milk chocolate, sour cherry, smoke, and a bit of herbs. Steely feel on the tip of the tongue that morphs into harsh yet fine-grained astringency. On mid-palate, there's enough sweetness and black fruit, lots of cassis, spice, blackberries, tobacco and earth. The acidity makes for a mouth-watering finish that lingers for quite a while.
Please decant for 2-3 hours upon opening.

Domaine de Chevalier, 2010

Graves Pessac-Leogan

This deeply coloured, concentrated and firmly structured wine will just begin to stretch its legs by 2017, so try to resist opening your bottles until this time. Then let the wine breathe in a decanter for a couple of hours before serving. Enjoy this wine with simple red meat dishes or mature cheeses when young, and with game and sauced meats when it is more mature.

The world-renowned American wine writer Robert Parker describes Domaine de Chevalier as "a true connoisseur's wine" and adds "the production is tiny and the wines are amongst the most highly sought-after of Pessac-Léognan". He writes of this vintage's offering: "Consultant Stephane Derenoncourt along with owner Olivier Bernard have done a fabulous job over recent years .

Chateau Guiraud, 2009

Sauternes HALF BOTTLE 37.5cl

The 2009 Guiraud is very tight on the nose, taking time to unfurl, with notes of apricot, peach, a touch of honeysuckle and quince. Good definition. The palate is impressive. tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore. Drink from 2015 to 2030+

Chateau Haut Batailley, 2009

Pauillac

** 92 Points Neil Martin Wine Journal ***

The nose is quite closed at the moment. Good definition, ripe blackfruits, earthy almost clayey at the moment. Whilst the aromatics are a little unsettled after bottling, the palate shows good structure with a slight saline touch on the entry. Chalky tannins, not quite in synch with the fruit at the moment although that will come in time. Good potential, but afford this 3-4 years to coalesce in bottle. Tasted November 2011.
