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
11 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
6 75cl

BRANE-CANTENAC
Margaux


RP
- This stunning, evolved, dark plum/ruby-hued 2008 reveals aromas of forest floor, sweet black and red currants, licorice and roasted herbs. Classic, elegant and medium to full-bodied, it provides a sexy, complex, intellectual as well as hedonistic turn-on.

2008 £48.00 RP92
2011-26
 
7 75cl

CANTENAC-BROWN
Margaux


RP
- The greatest Cantenac Brown I have ever tasted, this monumental effort possesses enormous concentration, with loads of black and blue fruits intermixed with damp earth and forest floor. I have never seen a Cantenac Brown so seamless, so powerful, yet at the same time, so elegant and densely complex. They have certainly done something here that has not been accomplished over the last three decades I have been tasting this estate’s wines. Opaque purple in color and full-bodied, this big-time sleeper of the vintage merits serious attention for the first time in my professional career.

2009 £59.00 RP96
2010-40
 
103 75cl

CHATEAU CLARKE
Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


Wine Spectator -
Sweet tobacco and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Concentrated for the appellation. Well done.

2009 £32.00 WS93
2014-24
 
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 £29.00 WS87
2010-18

A Lovely Drinker - The Ladies love it!
5 75cl

BLASON D'ISSAN
Margaux

2nd Wine of Chateau D'Issan
The top wine currently sells for approx. £32 a bottle!
So this represents excellent value.

RP - A gorgeous second wine, the 2012 Blason d'Issan is beautifully sexy, soft, and creamy textured, with a dense purple colour and attractive blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some liquorice and camphor.
It is stunning, lush, sexy and very, very forward, an ideal second wine that reflects its appellation of origin but delivers gorgeous, even luxurious fruit levels.

2012 £20.00 RP90
2015-25
2 75cl

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 £39.00 RP90
2015-30

10 75cl

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 £51.00 RP90
2011-28
 
4 75cl

GISCOURS
Margaux

RP
- The deep plum/purple-coloured 2001 exhibits notes of melted liquorice, barbecue spices, violets, black currants, and a hint of blackberries. Medium-bodied and fleshy, with a cunning style that sneaks up on the palate, building in increments, this pure, rich, concentrated yet elegant, charming effort provides further evidence of this chateau’s strong rebound.

2001 £59.00 RP90

MALESCOT-ST-EXUPERY
Margaux

RP - Another great wine in this vintage, the 2012 Malescot offers up tremendous level of black fruits, charcoal and intense, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sensational purity, low acidity and ripe tannins. It is full-bodied, stunning, multidimensional, and a compelling example of this vintage.

2012 £42.00 RP93
2017-30

ALTER EGO PALMER
Margaux


2nd Wine of Chateau Palmer
The top wine currently sells for approx. £160 a bottle! So this represents excellent value.

RP- Another brilliant example
from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, liquorice and subtle background oak. Opulently textured, full-bodied and stunning, this is an outrageously successful second wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.

2012 £55.00 RP93
2015-30
 
46 75cl

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 £32.00 RP89
2015-30

Great Value!

14 75cl

CHATEAU RAUZAN-SEGLA
Margaux

RP
- The 2014 Rauzan-Segla has a very pure, mineral-driven bouquet that could almost be from the Côte de Nuits! This is as refined as you will discover in Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, caressing and smooth in texture with well-judged acidity and fanning out with crushed strawberry, Morello and a touch of orange rind on the finish.

2014 £65.00 RP/NM92
2020-45
9 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 £56.00 RP94+
2022-52
12 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 £24.00 RP92
2009-24
