BARON DE BRANE
Margaux

2nd Wine of Second Growth Chateau Brane-Cantenac
The top wine currently sells for approx. £75 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

Wine Spectator -
Bright and intensely floral, with a lovely violet aroma and long, rich plum sauce, blackberry and currant notes. There's lush toast, but it's nicely integrated. Very suave.

2012 £35.00 WS92
2017-28

Top Vintage

48 75cl

CANTEMERLE
Haut Medoc

Wine Spectator
- Bright and racy, with red currant and plum fruit lined with a lively tang of iron that streaks through the finish. A touch taut, but should unwind nicely with modest cellaring.

2014 £24.00 WS90
2017-28
10 75cl

CANTEMERLE
Haut Medoc

RP
- With a dense, ruby/purple colour, low acidity, ripe tannin and well above-average depth, this is really an elegant, cleanly made, pure style of wine, with floral notes, mixed with blueberry and black cherry. It’s medium bodied, with light tannin.

2012 £22.00 RP88
2015-27

CHATEAU CLARKE
Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


RP/Neal Martin -
The 2015 Clarke has an attractive blackberry and briary scented nose with just a hint of dark chocolate emanating from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, the acidity nicely judged with fine tension on the cedar and tobacco-tinged finish. I appreciate the freshness and refinement demonstrated by this Château Clarke, a classic Listrac that should give 10-12 years of pleasure.

2015 £27.00 RP/NM92

CHATEAU CLARKE
Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


 RP -
One of the better Clarke's ever made, this wine from the cool, backwater appellation of Listrac displays serious density, an opaque ruby/purple colour, and lots of earth, black currants and raspberries. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

2009 £28.00 RP89
2012-24
 
18 75cl

CHATEAU CLARKE
Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


Wine Spectator -
Offers cool mineral and dark berry fruit, with hints of mint. Full-bodied, showing silky tannins and a solid core of fruit. Slightly lean, but balanced in the finish. Nicely crafted for the vintage.

2007 £24.00 WS87
2010-18

GISCOURS
Margaux


RP
-  The plump, rich and densely purple-coloured 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 liquorice and crème de cassis notes, and a broad, round, juicy mouthfeel.

2012 £36.00 RP90

GISCOURS
Margaux


RP
- Dark plum/garnet, this elegant, medium to full-bodied, beguiling, seductive 2008 is a sleeper of the vintage. Round and silky-smooth with lovely black cherry and black currant fruit imbued with touches of smoke, herbs and earth.

2008 £40.00 RP90

SÉGLA
Margaux

2nd Wine of Rauzan-Segla
The top wine currently sells for approx. £56 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

RP -
The 2012 Ségla, the second wine of Rauzan-Ségla, is soft, fruity, dense ruby/purple, with some nice plum, blackcurrant and cherry fruit and well as hints of earth, liquorice and spice.
A strong effort for a second wine, this round and generous 2012 should drink well for 12-15 years.

2012 £29.00 RP89
2015-30

Great Value!

6 75cl

CHATEAU RAUZAN-SEGLA
Margaux

RP
- The 2012 Rauzan-Ségla (54.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is a classic Rauzan-Ségla, still relatively backward and tannic, but concentrated and extremely promising. Dense blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit along with some liquorice, vanilla, foresty notes and spice are all present in this full-bodied yet structured and big, beefy style of Rauzan-Ségla . It may turn out to be somewhat atypical for this château in its size and masculine structure, but this is impressive wine, and one of the great successes of the vintage.

2012 £62.00 RP94+
2022-52
4 75cl

The Winemakers Collection No.4
by Stephane Derenoncourt
Haut Medoc

RP - Stephane Derenoncourt’s Cuvee Numero 4 is a more forward style with velvety tannins, and sweet black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with subtle smoke and liquorice. This well-made, medium to full-bodied effort should drink gorgeously well young, yet evolve for 10-15 years.

2008 £23.00 RP92
2009-24
