  1. Château Langoa Barton, Saint-Julien 2007

    A blend of 77.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 7.5% Cabernet Franc. This has a ripe blackberry, violet tinged nose that is perhaps lacking the clarity and vigour that it often shows at this stage. A touch of seashells become apparent in the glass. The palate is full-bodied, quite sinewy comparative to other Saint Juliens with good concentration and purity of fruit with no signs of under-ripeness. The Langoa 2007 has a persistent finish with good depth and focus with blackberry and cedar to the fore. Very fine, as usual. Tasted April 2008 Score: 90/91 Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, April 2008
  2. Chateau Latour, Pauillac, 1971

    The history of Chateau Latour dates back at least to the 14th century, even though the vineyards for which it is now world-renowned were not fully established until the 17th century. The estate is located at the southern edge of Pauillac, bordering the St. Julien vineyards of Chateau Leoville Las Cases and covers 78 hectares. A perfect bottle - fully mature and showing wonderful softness and complexity with notes of sweet earth, roasted nuts and dark fruits. Silky and smooth and very Latour with tell-tale flavours of tar and smoky gravel. Quite mature, Cellar potential: Now - 2020. Bottle label is aged.
  3. Chateau Margaux 1975

    Chateau Margaux's first growth history dates back to the 12th century. The Margaux vineyard is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. The style of Chateau Margaux at its best, blends elegance, purity of fruit, harmony, and finesse. The purity of fruit has evolved into dried fruits with hints of leather, tobacco leaf, and truffle. If wines were actors, perhaps it could be described as having the charm, style, finesse and elegance of Cary Grant. There was a reason America's third President and first serious wine collector favoured Margaux. In 1787, he said "Chateau Margaux is one of the top 4 Bordeaux wines". Over 200 years later, his words still ring true! Drink now to 2018.
  4. Chateau Lynch Bages, Pauillac 2005

The property is owned by the famous Jean Michelle Cazes and currently run by his son Jean-Charles. A sublimely masculine heavyweight Lynch. It is a Pauillac personified with an impenetrable but incredibly ripe nose bursting with pure, mineral cassis. Mouth filling creamy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit is phenomenally smooth and boasts great structure with hints of tobacco, coffee, leather, and mint. The tannins are rich and silky with rare freshness. Drink now to 2027.

  6. 1993 Perrier Jouet 'Belle Epoque' Blanc de Blancs

    Established in 1811, Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque stands out visually amongst the other Grand Cuvee Champagne houses, thanks to the beautiful Japanese anemones on the bottle, designed by Emile Galle in 1902. Aromas of white fruits, lemons, white peach and pear gives way to hints of pineapple. This is followed by richer aromas of nuts, marzipan, and sweet spice. The palate is lively, with marked minerality. Sensual and silky, harmonious and beautifully balanced, the flavours mingle to leave a long, fine finish. An iconic vintage from Perrier Jouet. The last bottle that we know of left outside the Champagne House. Drink now to 2018.
  7. 1975 Fonseca Vintage Port

    Fonseca was founded in 1822 when Manuel Pedro Guimaraens acquired control of the Fonseca & Monteiro Company. As a condition of the sale, Fonseca insisted his name be retained. Today, Fonseca Guimaraens is still a family wine shipper with David Guimaraens being the 6th generation involved in the industry. Superb complexity of the aromatics, with dried red berry fruit, anise and herbal notes. Concentrated, sweet flavours of dried cherry, espresso and distinct liquorice followed by fine, ripe tannins. Quite lively, yet round - has years of life ahead of it, but the overall balance and palate presence is superior in this vintage Port. Its excellent long and lingering finish is memorable. Drink now to 2030.
  8. Flor de Pingus 2014 Ribera del Duero

    Dominio de Pingus is a Spanish winery located in Quintanilla de Onésimo with vineyards in the La Horra area of the Ribera del Duero region. It was established in 1995 by Danish oenologist Peter Sisseck who believes in a system of never fertilising or treating the vineyard with pesticides.

    “Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh boysenberry, floral oils and incense, with suave vanilla and woodsmoke nuances building in the glass. Sweet and plush on the palate, offering intense, smooth dark fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors. Really stains the palate, finishing with superb thrust and clarity; velvety tannins add gentle grip.”- Josh Raynolds

  9. Ornellaia 2014 Bolgheri DOC Superiore

    2014 was one of the longest and most delayed harvest at Ornellaia, with the first Merlot harvested the 6th of September, and a large part of the historical vineyards – including some Merlot – harvested in October. The 2014 harvest, that ended on the 22nd of October, was the latest ever.

    The clusters were hand-picked into 15-kg boxes and then selected by hand on a double sorting table, before and after destemming, and finally softly crushed. Each grape variety and single vineyard block was vinified separately. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 26-30°C for two week, followed by 10-15 days of maceration on the skins. The malolactic fermentation took place mainly in oak barrels, 70% new and 30% once-used. The wine then remained in barriques, in Ornellaia’s temperature-controlled cellars for about 18 months. After the first 12 months of maturation, the wine was assembled and then returned to the barriques for an additional 6 months. After bottling, the wine aged a further 12 months prior to release.

    “2014 was one of the most demanding years in memory of, and has allowed us to produce high quality wines that are offering great delight. The late ripening of the grapes allowed the fruit to fully express its liveliness and freshness. What is particularly striking is the high quality of the tannins on the palate: silky, refined, without rough edges. This year represents the heart of the estate, Ornellaia’s ‘Essence’: its natural style, the exceptional quality of its terroir, and the competence of those who work in the vineyards and the cellar.”

    Axel Heinz – May 2015

  10. Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2015

    ~ Voted Wine #1 of the Year from Wine Advocate ~

    85% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Cabernet Franc

    Sassicaia is today one of the most sought-after fine wines in the world. This is largely because of the vision, energy and drive of proprietor Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. The name Sassicaia means place of many stones, and the gravelly soil has been compared to those found in the Médoc. He planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and engaged the services of Piero Antinori`s winemaker, Giacomo Tachis.

    A very good vintage that influenced in a very positive way the wines of 2015. Intense, concentrated and deep ruby-colored, this wine offers elegant, complex aromas of red fruit. In the mouth it is rich and dense, yet harmonious, with sweet, balanced tannins. The wine has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extraordinary longevity.
