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 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 Cissac, 2010

Medoc, Cru bourgeois

*** 90 Points (outstanding) - Wine Journal ****

Reviews:

Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. The Cissac has a well-defined, delineated bouquet with blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco notes. It is well balanced with graphite-infused black fruit, a touch of tobacco and impressive precision and length towards the finish. Very fine. Tasted September 2012. Neil Martin - Wine Journal 2012


Background.
In 1895, Jacques Mondon, a lawyer in Pauillac, acquired several vineyards in the parish of Cissac-Medoc. He combined these different vineyards under the name of Chateau Cissac.

Chateau Durfort Vivens, 2010

Margaux 2nd Growth Classification (Includes gift box with wine accessories as illustrated)

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.

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 Lafite Rothschild, 2009

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,

*** 99+ Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews:
The main reason the 2009 Lafite Rothschild did not receive a perfect score is because the wine has closed down slightly, but it is unquestionably another profound Lafite, their greatest wine since the amazing 2003. Among the most powerful Lafites ever made (it came in at 13.59% alcohol), the final blend was 82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. The selection was incredibly severe with only 45% of the crop being utilized. A tight, but potentially gorgeous nose of graphite, black currants, licorice and camphor is followed by a full-bodied wine revealing the classic elegance, purity and delineated style of Lafite.

Chateau Rieussec, 2009

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

***97 Points by Neil Martin -eRobertParker.com #205 Feb 2013***

The team at Chateau Rieussec have conjured a stellar wine in 2009. There is a little reduction at first that fortunately blows away, revealing thickly layered scents of honey, Danish pastry and quince that appear to gain vigor with every passing sip. The palate is stunning: very viscous in the mouth with tangy grapefruit, honey and white peach. It is still primal, but the acidity is perfectly judged and there is a life-affirming sense of precision and tension towards the finish. Exceptional. Drink now-2045.

Chateau Beaumont, 2008

Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeous

*** 88 Points -Stephen Tanzer ***

Reviews
Great intensity. Very deep colour with garnet reflections. The nose is very open and inviting with soft oaky notes of vanilla and spice bringing out the red fruits such as blackcurrant and black cherry. The attack on the palate is smooth and fresh. The tannic development is of great quality, with fatness giving real mouthfeel. The lightly oaked fruit aromas are very elegant and contribute to the fine aromatic persistence.

Chateau Gruaud Larose, 2008

St Julien, 2me Cru Classe

*** 90 Points (outstanding) - Robert Parker

Reviews
"While the 2008 is not a blockbuster, it is a strong effort for the vintage. This dark plum/purple-hued wine reveals some background oak, licorice, earth, plum, black currant and cherry notes intertwined with a foresty/mossy component. Deep, polished and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, it builds incrementally on the palate. This impressive 2008 will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for two decades." Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Chateau Margaux, 2008

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe

Reviews
This is a stunning Chateau Margaux, made in a sexy, up-front, elegant style, with deep creme de cassis fruit intermixed with spring flowers, a solid inner core of richness and depth, but again, very sweet tannins as well as striking minerality and elegance. One of the most seductive Chateau Margauxs given its recent bottling, this blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot should drink beautifully for the next 25-30 years. Remarkably, a mere 36% of the entire production was selected for the 2008 Chateau Margaux.

Varietal mix
Cabernet Sauvignon 83%
Merlot 17%

Tasting notes

With a very high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend once again, this Mouton Rothschild displays a very rich range of aromas and flavours throughout the tasting.

The first nose is intense and open: red fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant combine harmoniously with floral notes such as violet. On airing, roasted, toasted notes mingle graciously with delicate touches of cedarwood.

The palate opens with a lively, powerful and full-bodied attack, releasing silky, velvet tannins. Forward fruit on black berry flavours is set off by toasted notes and a delicious touch of vanilla, while the powerful and harmonious finish displays very attractive length.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 2007

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,

*** 94 Points - Robert parker ***

Reviews:
"A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2007 Lafite Rothschild (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot) reveals classic Lafite aromas of graphite, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants, cherries, and a hint of truffles. The complex aromatics are followed by a round, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, an overall subtle smoky component, and a rich, round, generous, plump finish. Already evolved and delicious, it should continue to drink well for two decades." Erobertparker.com
