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.

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 d'Armailhac, 2014

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification

93-94 points James Suckling
Very minerally, silky and refined with a full body, firm tannins and currants, stones and citrus. Racy and fine. This has a little more Merlot in the blend but is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon as always. One of the best Armailhacs in a long time. Mar 2015

90-93 points Vinous
The 2014 d'Armailhac is absolutely delicious. Dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate, spice and floral notes are bold and exuberant in the glass. This is an especially extroverted, silky d'Armailhac long on class, finesse and resonance. All the elements are in the right place. Ripe, silky tannins add to an overall impression of creaminess, but there is also a terrific element of pure energy here.

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 Giscours, 2012

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification

Reviews for the 2012 Chateau Giscours

The plump, rich and densely purple-colored 2012 Giscours, has turned out very well in this vintage, offering loads of fruit. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it has a moderate finish, and is medium to full-bodied, with excellent licorice and crème de cassis notes, and a broad, round, juicy mouthfeel. This is a wine that can be drunk young or cellared for 12-15 years. Drink: 2015 - 2030.
Score: 90 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015

This deep, dark ruby-colored effort reveals developed and forward notes of licorice, roasted herbs, sweet black currants, incense and a touch of smoky barbecue/oaky characteristics.

Chateau Pontet Canet, 2012

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

The charming Pontet-Canet owner, Alfred Tesseron, is always keen to share his philosophies on wine-making, which are almost-entirely focussed on making the wine as pure and expressive of the terroir as possible. This year they have taken this philosophy a stage further, with a portion of the 2012 vintage matured in specifically-designed concrete amphorae that are intended to give the perfect level of lees contact - and therefore a wine with maximum purity. Certainly I know of no wine this vintage to have such a pure and expressive nature. The nose is extraordinary, much more expressive than most, with beautiful Cabernet notes of cassis, violet and blackberry.

Chateau Cissac, 2011

Medoc, Cru Bourgeois

A 2011 vintage Bordeaux wine. This is the beauty of decent Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux if stored well - it makes demands on the taster (patience and consideration). Not a wine from those who prefer to 'pop and pour' who miss out on most of the quality and character.

The 2011 has a good rich colour - browning just a little at the rim. This bottle demands patience when opening as it needs time to develop. Good blackcurrant nose. Plum, damson on the palate with balancing blackcurrant acidity. Dusty tannins on the end palate at first but the tannin softened in the glass, even without food. With food it is excellent.

Chateau Pontet Canet, 2011

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

Alfred Tesseron has lifted the reputation of this fifth growth property up to that of a ‘super second’. Along with Lynch Bages, this has become one of the most sought after wines year on year. 100% Bio-dynamic, with large parcels worked by horses; Melanie explained that there was no delestage, no pigeage and no de-leafing in 2011. Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2011 has been cropped at 32hl/ha, so there will be 25% less wine than in 2010.


There is lovely perfume here; notes of cassis, sweet earth and violets. On the palate, perfumed purple fruit caresses the mouth; there is tremendous depth of fruit and lots of dry extract.

Chateau Brane Cantenac, 2010

Margaux 3rd Growth Classification

"With a gorgeously evolved, extremely complex bouquet of forest floor, spring flowers, lead pencil shavings and red and black currants, this full-bodied, dense, ruby/plum/purple-colored wine hits the palate with an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a very layered, profoundly concentrated style that is, at the same time, both powerful and sublime. This gorgeous wine from proprietor Andre Lurton will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and evolve for 25-30 years. 95+ pts." (eRobertParker.com, Feb 2013).

Beautifully expressed Cabernet fruit, pure Margaux elegance that combines intensity and finesse, long flavours, excellent balance that shows up Brane's specific style.

Reviews:
96points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035.

The Wine Advocate - The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Langoa Barton is scented of warm red and black plums, dried mulberries and blackcurrant cordial with touches of dried mint and new leather. Medium to full-bodied with a solid frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, it has loads of red and black berry preserves layers on the long, savory finish.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - 14/03/2019

Jancis - Mid crimson with quite a pale rim. Pretty light – early picked? There’s a nice freshness and neatness to this but it’s overall a bit dry and grainy.

Chateau Troplong Mondot, 2009

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
*** 99 Points Robert Parker ***

The 2009 Chateau Troplong Mondot is an outstanding wine that shows smoke, earth, stone, black cherry and truffle. With air, the medium/full bodied, sensuous, wine filled out in the glass while becoming softer, with more richness. Ready to drink and close to maturity, ends with fresh blackberry and spicy plum sensations.

It boasts an inky/purple colour along with a gorgeous bouquet of mocha, chocolate, blackberry and cassis fruit, an unctuous texture, a full-bodied, viscous mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like, multilayered finish. This spectacular wine is nearly overwhelming in its richness, thickness and intensity.

Domaine de Chevalier, 2009

Graves Pessac-Leogan

** 93 Points - Robert Parker **

Reviews: One of the fabulous sleepers of the vintage and a wine for serious Bordeaux afficionados to consider buying, the 2009 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. Surprisingly backward for a 2008, it is medium to full-bodied with moderate tannins, lots of purity and abundant charcoal, black currant and floral notes. The sweetness of the fruit, depth of flavor and textured, lush mouthfeel in this medium to full-bodied, ageworthy 2008 are impressive. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 2008

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

Varietal mix
Cabernet Sauvignon 83%
Merlot 17%

This 2008 Mouton Rothschild has a very high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, once again this red wine 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 cedar wood.

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 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.

Showing better than it did from cask, this soft, generous, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2007 exhibits sweet black currant fruit intermixed with cedar, roasted herbs, and subtle smoke. Round, hedonistic, and already complex, this blend of 73.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26.5% Merlot should drink well for a few more years.
