Chateau Branaire-Ducru, 2016

St Julien, 4th Growth Classification

The 2016 Branaire-Ducru is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc picked from 28 September until 19 October at 50 hectoliters per hectare, one of the longest harvest periods at the estate.


Reviews:
The 2016 Branaire Ducru has a fragrant bouquet of plush blackberry and graphite aromas, hints of bilberry and briar developing in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is quite succulent and multilayered, offering supple tannin and gentle grip on the finish. Real potential here. One of the best Branaire Ducru in recent years. Chapeau! Drink 2023-2055.

Chateau Kirwan, 2016

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification

The Chateau Kirwan from the 2016 Vintage has a tightly knit bouquet of blackberry, pencil lead, crushed stone and pressed iris. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity, and a little more succulent than it showed in barrel, leading to a persistent finish.

Reviews
"The 2016 Kirwan is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot picked up 49 hectoliters per hectare between 27 September until 18 October. The nose needed some encouragement from the glass, perhaps not quite as cohesive as I was expecting, angular black fruit with a dash of white pepper.

St-Julien 3rd Growth Classification

The 2016 Langoa Barton is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and opens with cedar, red and black currants, kirsch and menthol with smoked meats. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and packed with youthful, energetic fruit, finishing long and perfumed.


Reviews:

96 points James Suckling
Beautiful aromas of flowers and berries, intermingled in fresh and brambly mode with a cedary edge. This is very fresh. The tannins carve an exceptionally deep, long line through the dark berries and cassis and deliver a very powerful, unwavering finish. This is in great form. Very powerful and focused.

Chateau Coutet, 2012

Barsac, Premier Cru Classe

The 2012 Chateau Coutet is youthful on the nose, aromas of honeysuckle and honey alongside some sweet and unresolved oak. The palate has a fat and creamy nature, with a well rounded and broad presence. Although rich it has elegance and freshness, defined by a nice backbone of acidity, as well as a lovely floral edge. This is really very good indeed and could well be excellent. Will keep developing over many years.

Chateau Palmer, 2011

The 2011 Chateau Palmer red wine comes fifty years after the legendary 1961 vintage, this year’s wine stood out for its extremely low yields; the result of hail, and extreme heat in June. The concentrated result was both beautiful and unexpected, which should herald excellent ageing potential.

The opaque blue/purple-coloured 2011 Palmer reveals a stunning bouquet of licorice, truffles, camphor, spring flowers, black raspberries and black currants. One of the superstars of the vintage, this brilliant 2011 possesses superb concentration and purity, medium to full body, and remarkable length of close to a minute.

Chateau Cardinal-Villemaurine, 2010

New

St Emilion Grande Cru

The 2010 Cardinal-Villemaurine is rich full- bodied with smooth tannins. Villemaurine is best enjoyed in the first 5-20 years of life.
Look out for deposits, decanting, just enough to remove the sediment leave for an hour will sofen the tanins even more.
Oaked but not in your face, black berry, plummy scents, the wine is fleshy, ripe, fresh, concentrated, plummy and easy to drink

Les Tourelles de Longueville, 2010

2nd Wine of Chateau Pichon Longueville (Baron)

2010 Torelles de Longueville

Tasting Notes
Aromas of blueberries and spices with lots of fresh flowers. Full body, with a beautiful core of ripe fruit that balances beautifully with the tannins and bright acidity. A wine for the future yet so enjoyable now. Second wine of Pichon Baron.

Score: 92 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2013

Dark, sleek and inviting, with gorgeous plum cake, fig and blackberry coulis notes mixing with melted licorice snap and tar on the finish. Not small by any stretch, with mouthwatering acidity and vivacity pulling you in now. Should develop with cellaring.

Chateau Yquem, 2009

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

100 Points Neil martin
Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2009 Chateau d'Yquem is one showstopper of a wine and perhaps it is only in a vertical that you realize this is up there among the legendary wines of the past - the 2001 included. It has a wonderful nose that expresses the Semillon component majestically: heady aromas of lemon curd, nectarine, jasmine and honeysuckle that all gain momentum in the glass. The oak is supremely well-integrated. The palate is extremely well-balanced with an unctuous entry. You are immediately knocked sideways by the palpable weight and volume in the mouth, which is almost ""bulbous,"" with layer upon layer of heavily botrytized fruit.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 2008

St Estephe, 2eme Cru Classe (Half Bottle 37.5cl)

The 2008 Cos d'Estournel is inky/purple-hued and is still very young most likely to improve even further as the wine came out of malolactic fermentation very late. It reveals exceptionally precise, fresh aromas of black fruits, crushed rocks, licorice, flowers, and subtle smoke. Dense and high in tannin, the extraordinary richness of polyphenols has given the wine power, substance, and depth, but the sweetness of the tannin and the seemingly low acidity, even though the wine tastes remarkably fresh and the pH is only 3.57 (compared to pH’s close to 4 when the fruit is this ripe), has given the wine a precision and elegance that is remarkable.

Chateau Lynch-Bages, 2008

Sale

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

Reviews for the 2008 Chateau Lynch-Bages: "A sensational effort for the vintage, this textured, opulent, superb Lynch Bages is already strutting its stuff and should easily last for 20 years. Medium to full-bodied with an opaque dense purple colour, notes of flowers and cassis, a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo!" Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2011.

"Juxtaposed against the Pichon-Lalande, the Lynch Bages is far more reticent on the nose with more overt graphite and sous-bois aromas inflecting the fruit.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, 2007

St Julien 2me Cru Classe

This 2007 vintage Bordeaux wine from Ducru Beaucaillou was tasted blind at Farr Vintners Bordeaux tasting; it has a generous red cherry and wild strawberry bouquet armed with very good fruit concentration. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy in the mouth with slightly lower acidity than its peers. Harmonious and velvety smooth, there is a fair amount of new oak here, but it is very well integrated with a caressing finish. It still has that Burgundian flair. This is excellent considering the growing season. Tasted March 2015.

A 2006 St Emilion Grand Cru Classe red wine magnum bottle.

Now under full control of the Moueix family, with Christian Moueix's son Edouard managing the estate, and their new technical director Eric Murisasco is making the wine.
In 2006 the Moueix family did not own the estate outright, but did have some influence, and the 2006 is certainly a good effort, with notes of kirsch liqueur, crushed rock, and some subtle herbs. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 05)

"This is an impressive showing for Gruaud-Larose under blind conditions. It has a reserved, cedar, leafy nose with good definition and poise with good lift – very Pauillac in style with the Cabernet driving it along. The palate is full-bodied, very well balanced with good acidity. Firm tannins, ripe and elegant, very well poised on the briary finish. Charming. Tasted January 2010." Neil Martin, Wine Journal.

Ambassade de Sauternes, 2005

Grand Vin De Bordeaux
Half-bottle 37.5cl

The 2005 Ambassade de Sauternes is a bright gold colour. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet, and yet explosively sweet with flavors of fresh nectarine, scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. The sweetness pours out of the freshness, so it's impossible to taste them apart. The flavors last, perhaps because it's the kind of wine you'll want to roll around in your mouth over and over.

Chateau Branaire-Ducru, 2005

St Julien, 4th Growth Classification

*** 95 Points - Robert Parker ***

From the classic 2005 vintage this is one of the greatest Chateau Branaire-Ducru's bottled and a flamboyant and expressive example of St Julien. Highly rated by the critics and for good reason. The wine is structured and rich, full bodied and harmonic.

The wine is still young and will drink best after 2020.

Robert Parker- 95 Points

"As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000,
