It displays loads of beautiful cassis, cedar, and Christmas fruitcake notes along with impressive purity, texture, and a full-bodied mouthfeel”. Robert Parker.

  • 2016 Chateau Les Carmes Haut Brion Le C des Carmes
    Bordeaux, France
    51 % Merlot 48 % Cabernet Sauvignon 1 % Petit Verdot
    Using a more traditional blend, C des Carmes Haut-Brion focuses on Merlot subtly complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is in the spotlight here, offering an elegant range of aromas. Drunk young, the wine develops a crisp intensity which will gain the patina of beautiful complexity as the year's pass. -The 2016 Le C des Carmes Haut-Brion comes from vines located in the clos over towards Martillac, rather than the vines in the original Les Carmes Haut-Brion vineyard in the Bordeaux suburbs, known as "Le Clos des Carmes Haut-Brion" up until the 2013 vintage. It is a blend of 51% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot, matured in 30% new oak and the remainder one-year-old barrels. This includes 25% whole berry fruit. It offers plenty of brambly black fruit on the nose, crushed violets, fresh fig, and a touch of spice that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, neatly integrated oak, a little plushness on the entry thanks to the Merlot, and then it dovetails into a more structured, gently grippy, chalk-textured finish with attractive black fruit. Give this two or three years in bottle just to shave off a little abrasiveness and you will have a fine Pessac-Léognan. 2020 - 2035 90/92 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (230), April 2017-

  • 2011 Chateau Bellevue de Tayac, Margaux
    Bordeaux, France
    55% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot 10% Petit Verdot
    This Margaux estate has evolved a lot since Jean-Luc Thunevin bought it in 2004. The vines span 4 hectares of limestone soils and are farmed respectfully. The soils are tilled to ensure the roots dig deep into the soil and manual harvests are followed by careful, precise vinification. The wines are sought after for their excellent balance between density and freshness. Dense yet fresh, this wine is fleshy and reveals a particularly long finish with intense evolved aromas. The ripe blackcurrant and toasty notes mingle with spiced, savory aromas. The Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon grapes are vinified in stainless steel vats to preserve their freshness while the Petit-Verdot is put in oak. The wine is then raised in new oak barriques.

  • Domaine des Bosquets, Gigondas, Southern Rhône
    Rhône, France
    75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 3 % Mourvèdre and 2% Cinsault.
    "Home to the first Gigondas vines in 1376, Domaine des Bosquets is today run by brothers Laurent and Julien Bréchet with the same commitment to quality as at Château de Vaudieu. The 26 hectares of vines are up to 75 years old and lie at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Julien has identified three distinct soil types at different altitudes within his vineyards: marl at 250-300 metres above sea level; sandy clay at 200-220 metres; and blue clay at 170 metres. These offer the potential for varying ripeness levels and fruit characters in the wine. All the vines are cordon-trained for the optimum exposure and ventilation of the grapes, and the fruit is hand-harvested and goes through rigorous selection. The Gigondas is a blend of different parcels and is dominated by 75% Grenache, with 20% Syrah, 3 % Mourvèdre and 2% Cinsault. It has a lift and balance, as well as a powerful fruit character. The wine is aged for 18 months in total. For 12 months it ages separately: the Syrah is aged in 228-litre oak barrels, the Grenache is aged in 600-litre barrels and the rest is aged in concrete tanks. All three are then blended and bottled six months later. The 2011 Gigondas 'Le Lieu Dit' is from a 1.3-hectare parcel at 300 metres altitude giving the wine freshness as well as ripeness. It is made of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah and is matured for 18 months, 12 months of which was spent in French oak barrels. A complex nose of sweet blackberries, red plums, roasted provençal herbs and macerated cherries. On the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied wine, with good structure, beautiful tannins and a clean finish.

    Located in the AOC Sainte-Foy Cotes de Bordeaux, bordering the Dordogne River in Eynesse, Château Martet is spread over 33 ha.

  • Château Mont-Redon Lirac Rouge, Rhone
    Rhône, France

    Lirac is situated on the right bank of the Rhône River, west of Châteauneuf-du-Pape between the towns of Orange and Avignon. Château Mont-Redon's 35 hectares of vineyards are located on a plateau with soils of sand and pebbles, similar to nearby Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Summers are dry and hot with the warm Mistral winds keeping away any humidity. The grapes are selected and hand-harvested beginning in early September.

With fermentation complete, approximately 1/3 of the wine is aged for a short period in small oak barrels with the remainder remaining in large vats. The wines are then blended and aged for an additional 18 months prior to bottling. Taste of red-cherry and blackberry notes are shaded by tones of anise and forest floor in this full-bodied, Grenachedominant red. Red-currant acidity lends crispness to the midpalate, accented by fine but drying, grippy tannins on the finish.

  • 2001 Chateau La Fleur-Petrus, Pomerol
    Bordeaux, France
    Merlot, Cabernet Franc
    'Very pretty licorice and spice character on the nose. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is slightly cooler and racier than the 2000, but I love them both.' James Suckling Château La Fleur-Pétrus is a Pomerol estate that has been owned by Jean Pierre Moueix (who also owns Pétrus and Trotanoy) since 1952. Four years after it was purchased, Bordeaux was hit by its worst frosts in living memory and most of the vineyards at Lafleur-Pétrus were destroyed and had to be replanted. La Fleur-Pétrus's 9.08 hectare vineyard is on a plateau east of Pomerol sandwiched between Lafleur and Pétrus. The soils are rich in gravel and the vineyard is planted with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. La Fleur-Pétrus's grapes are hand-harvested and then fermented in temperature-controlled concrete vats. The wine is then aged in small oak barriques (50% new) for 18 months. Lafleur-Pétrus produce elegant, smooth, and refined Pomerols that, whilst lacking the concentration and intensity found in Pétrus, are still amongst the finest wines of the region.

  • 2000 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
    Bordeaux, France
    71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
    The wine of Chateau Lynch-Bages is part of the lineage of the great Pauillac wines. Blended mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, it combines structure and finesse, elegance, and longevity. It is further distinguished by its opulence. Generous right from its youth, it develops more flavors and greater complexity as it matures. Manual harvests, rigorous selection, and aging for 12 to 15 months produce wines with superb concentration, rich tannins, and notes of spices and menthol. With time, they develop an exceptional aromatic complexity. 'Very dark ruby with some evolution. Toasty and appetizing. Very appealing subtlety and complexity on the nose though on the palate, it is clearly not as ripe as some. Maybe higher yields? An attractive drink but far from intense.' Jancis Robinson - jancisrobinson.com, 23 Mar 2010 'Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years.' Robert Parker Jr - Wine Advocate #196 Aug 2011

  • 2015 Domaine de Valmengaux, Bordeaux
    Bordeaux, France
    90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
    Located in the town of Vérac between Pomerol and Saint Emilion Domaine de Valmengaux is the brainchild of musician come winemaker Vincent Rapin. Certified Organic and using Biodynamic techniques the vineyard is run as Vincent puts it on 'common sense and pre-pesticide practices with only natural treatments being used and complex co-planting of other species in between the vines to promote their health. In his custom-made winery, Vincent is moving toward the use of less oak and has been investing instead in stockinger 12HL and amphorae to allow the wine to express its true character. The grapes are hand-harvested, only natural yeasts are used and Vincent does not use SO2 but favors a polyphenol liquid which is also organic. The wines show a lightness of touch, elegance, and if I dare say it a touch of mystery. This is a very interesting new producer who I believe has the potential to become renowned for their different/innovative approach to Bordeaux wines and who could gain a real following in the UK market. An exciting new wine from the right bank made organically with minimal use of oak and 10% amphora aging. This smooth, medium-bodied red exudes subtlety and elegance while also being generous and complex in flavor. The nose shows damson and bramble fruit which is equally as evident on the palate with the addition of some savory notes. The uniqueness of this wine is that despite its reasonable amount of firm tannins, it has a real lightness of touch which makes it very approachable and easy to drink. This would be the perfect bottle to compliment lamb cutlets or a cote de boeuf. Taylor made fermenters allowing full but gentle extraction No added sulfur but instead an organic polyphenolic solution Only fermented using natural yeasts Some aging in terracotta jars (currently 10% but will increase in future vintages) Certified organic

  • 2014 L Esprit de Chevalier, Pessac-Léognan, Graves
    Bordeaux, France
    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc
    "Subtle fruit and oak, superb hints of Havana and flint, we feel a great depth that we find in a powerful, elegant mouth, with noble tannins, aromas that never cease to lengthen and a freshness guaranteeing great potential." Domaine de Chevalier is one of the few Graves estates to produce both first class reds and whites. The property was purchased by the Ricard family in 1865 and remained in their hands until it was bought by the Bernard distilling company in 1983. Domaine De Chevalier has 35 hectares of vines and red wine accounts for 80% of the production. Made from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats and then matured in oak barriques (50% new) for 18 months. Domaine de Chevalier is fortunate to have such a fine team to run its affairs. Olivier, whose family business owns the estate, is the outgoing but canny administrator whilst Rémi Edange is hands-on, knowing every vine and every barrel. Whilst their white wines have always been amongst the very finest, the reds were simpler affairs. But from the 1995 vintage, onwards greater flair and concentration were in evidence. The quality curve is now further accentuated by the team's bold move to appoint Stéphane Derenoncourt, of La Mondotte fame, as consultant winemaker. Domaine De Chevalier is classified as a Graves Cru Classé.

Quality has been rising fast in recent years and the wine is known for its perfume and silky texture, especially after six or seven years of aging. There is documentary evidence that wine has been produced in some of the estate vineyards since 1608. The estate was sold to Simon Malescot in 1697, and the second part of the name comes from Count Jean-Baptiste Saint-Exupéry. A great second wine for drinking now, this has lashings of damson fruit to back up the acidity. The tannins are not as intense as they would be in a great vintage but it's good quality, with polish and real appeal.

  • Les Vignobles Foncalieu Corbieres La Lumiere
    Languedoc, France
    70% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre.
    The tale of the Atelier Prestige de Foncalieu is one of a handful of producers working together to reach new heights, to strive for even greater excellence. In this sunny land in the south of France, they constantly cherish their land to stir and inspire us: artisanal work to enhance the fruit and create concentrated wines with remarkable balance and freshness. Gilles Ferrand, Fabrice Oliver, and Marceau Lacombe have worked on the vine-like sculptors – a work of art brimming over with the light typical of Corbières, a land shaped by the sun. Nose with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur and dark chocolate. Mourvèdre signs this wine with its aromas of white pepper and its minerality. Remarkable sweetness in the attack and great concentration extending on a cocoa finish. A wine like the Corbières, wild, pure, with character.
