  • Chateau Bel-Air – Marquis d’Aligre Margaux 2010

    £67.95

    “The 2010 Bel-Air Marquis d’Aligre is even better on the nose than the 2009: beautifully defined with blackberry, raspberry preserve, a hint of tobacco and later a hint of black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with tangy red berry fruit, raspberry and wild strawberry. This is endowed with impressive density and it offers a captivating and slightly saline finish. You could broach this now if you wish, though I would prefer to let this age for another four or five years. What a magnificent, cerebral proposition this is. Tasted at the Bel-Air Marquis d’Aligre dinner. Drink: 2021-2035. 93 points”

  • Chateau La Grave a Pomerol 2016

    £44.99

    “Ripe, polished and youthful strident, this sports a solid core of plum and cassis detail that is well-enmeshed with roasted apple wood, black licorice and sweet tobacco notes. The juicy finish has latent grip, with a great graphite edge, as it moves through with authority. For the cellar. Best from 2023 through 2036. 2,200 cases made. 93 points”

  • Chateau Lagrange a Pomerol 2016

    £44.99

    “The 2016 Lagrange (Pomerol) is an intriguing wine. Savory herb, dried rose petal, mint and earthy notes add quite a bit of character to a core of fleshy, dark red fruit. The 2016 offers good depth and plenty of persistence in a slightly rustic style that nevertheless holds considerable appeal. 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Drinking window: 2021-2036. 92 points”

  • Chateau Lagrange a Pomerol 2019

    £41.75

    “l’ve criticized many previous vintages of this Pomerol, but the 2019 Lagrange gives notice of improvements afoot. Now in bottle, it has a very pleasant and quite concentrated bouquet of black cherries, raspberry coulis and light truffle scents laced with blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a velvety entry and a ripe, slightly confit, spicy finish. A surprisingly plush and well-defined Lagrange that has lived up to its promise and is well worth checking out. A harbinger of things to come? Drinking window: 2025-2038. 92 points”

  • Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2016

    £95.99

    “The 2016 Latour à Pomerol is a very beautiful wine. It is also quite a bit more reticent than most Pomerols in this vintage. Savory herb, leather, rose petal, blood orange, cedar, tobacco, menthol and dried cherry lift from the glass. En primeur, the 2016 was quite sensual, whereas today is decidedly powerful and structured. It will be interesting to see where things go in the coming years. One thing is for sure. I would not dream of opening a bottle anytime soon. Drinking window: 2026-2046. 94+ points”

  • Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2019

    £79.49

    “The high point in the Mouieux portfolio this year is the 2019 Latour à Pomerol, a terrific wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of cherries, sweet berries, rose petals, cigar wrapper and loamy soil. Full-bodied, ample and concentrated, it’s seamless and layered, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a vibrant, beautifully balanced profile. Drink: 2025-2050. 94 points”

  • Chateau Rocheyron Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014

    £83.25

    “The 2014 Château Rocheyron, the property owned by Peter Sisseck and Silvio Denz in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc matured in 35% new oak and a modest 13.4% alcohol. It has a backward bouquet at first that gradually opens in the glass with blackberry and cranberry fruit, expressing fine mineral tension and a hint of Chinese five spice. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly furry tannin, but impressive depth and excellent balance. The acidity is finely tuned here, lending this a linearity and focus not seen in Rocheyron’s first three vintages, and then it gently fans out towards the finish with hints of cedar and smoke lingering on the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended—one of the best vintages thus far. Drink: 2020-2035. 94 points”

  • Chateau Rocheyron Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016

    £96.25

    “The 2016 Rocheyron, from Peter Sisseck’s property in Saint-Émilion, is unquestionably the best to date. The bouquet bursts from the glass with fresh blackberry and boysenberry fruit that is seamlessly integrated with the one-third new oak. The palate is framed by fine tannins and a superb line of acidity. There is plenty of crisp black fruit here, and the smooth, energetic finish leaves a crushed stone residue. If you couldn’t locate any Pingus this year, just come here. Drinking window: 2023-2045. 94 points”

  • Chateau Rocheyron Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2018

    £91.45

    “The 2018 Rocheyron has a very detailed, pure bouquet of perfumed black cherries, crushed violet and light minerally scents. It is not powerful, yet the aromatics are very sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, well-judged acidity and a subtle dash of licorice that just lifts the silky-smooth finish. This is a very accomplished, classy Saint-Emilion from Peter Sisseck and Silvio Denz that should improve with a further 3-4 years in bottle. Drink: 2023-2040. 92 points”

  • Chateau Sociando-Mallet Jean Gautreau Haut-Medoc 2009

    £84.99

    “The 2009 Cuvée Jean Gautreau is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot picked between September 18 and October 5. The bouquet is not dissimilar to the 2005, offering well-defined blackberry, raspberry preserve and cranberry fruit, followed by incense and sandalwood. The new oak is neatly subsumed. The palate is lively and energetic on the entry, then quite spicy and saline, displaying supple but firm tannin and hints of dark chocolate toward the finish, which fans out confidently. Superb. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet. Drinking window: 2021-2035. 93 points”

  • L’Aurage 2016

    £34.95

    “The 2016 Domaine de l’Aurage is the recently introduced Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux by Louis Mitjavile, son of François Mitjavile of Tertre-Rôteboeuf. It has a pure, seductive bouquet of strawberry pastille, morello cherries and touches of blood orange and crème de cassis. The medium-bodied palate is well balanced and offers supple tannin, a judicious sprinkling of white pepper and oregano and a feisty, joyful finish that exudes energy. There is a straightforwardness to this L’Aurage that I like. A wine determined to give pleasure. Drinking window: 2022-2035. 91 points”

  • L’Aurage 2018

    £34.95

    “The 2018 Domaine de L’Aurage shows all of the radiance of the year in this super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, blood orange, mint and floral notes. L’Aurage is an attractive wine, but I feel the ripeness is a bit pushed for my taste. Drink: 2021-2030. 88 points”
