  • 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 2010

    £93.75

    “The 2010 Cuvée Jean Gautreau is pure Cabernet Sauvignon picked between September 24 and October 15. It has a fresh blackberry, graphite and woodland bouquet that handles the oak well. The saline palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen thread of acidity, and conveys a sense of symmetry toward the long and – surprisingly for the vintage – tender finish. This is a strong follow-up to the excellent 2009 Cuvée Jean Gautreau and one does not miss the Merlot contribution. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet. Drinking window: 2021-2035. 93 points”

  • Clos Louie 2016

    £64.95

    “From the Castillon region located east of Saint-Emilion, the 2016 Clos Louie is a killer, old vine selection of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Malbec, aged in 70% new French oak, that comes from the talents of Claude Gros. Possessing incredible limestone character as well as beautiful red fruits (black cherries, raspberries), incense, and cedar, this medium to full-bodied effort develops a thrilling floral character with time in the glass, is elegant and seamless on the palate, and has a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years. Drink: 2019-2034. 94 points”

  • Clos Louie 2020

    £64.95

    “The 2020 Clos Louie is gorgeous. Rich and explosive, the 2020 possesses terrific energy that distinguishes it. Inky black fruit, graphite, gravel, dried herbs, blood orange and lavender are all finely knit. The 2020 deftly marries fruit intensity with vibrancy and energy. It is a wine of tremendous appeal. Bright floral and spice accents perk up the finish. Clos Louie isn’t a big wine, but it sure is impressive. Drinking window: 2025-2035. 91-93 points”

  • Clos Saint-Martin Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2018

    £99.95

    “The 2018 Clos Saint-Martin is a wine that I last tasted from barrel on my final visit to Bordeaux before the pandemic. Now in bottle, it has a sensual, almost understated bouquet at first, but incredibly pure, offering black cherries, touches of blue fruit and iris petals. The oak here is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, a wonderful seam of acidity and one of the silkiest finishes that I have encountered in Saint-Emilion this vintage. Chapeau!

  • Clos Saint-Martin Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2020

    £92.95

    “Since tasting from barrel, the 2020 Clos Saint-Martin has gained more composure on the nose with black cherries, cassis and fresh fig. This has achieved some breeding. The palate is medium-bodied with plush, ripe black fruit, a graphite element not in situ in barrel, tensile with a gradual build on the finish. This deserves a more generous score. Tasted twice four months apart yet with consistent notes. Drinking window: 2027-2045. 94 points”

  • Durfort-Vivens Le Hameau Margaux 2019

    £44.95

    “The 2019 Durfort Vivens Le Hameau offers up rich aromas of blackberries, licorice, mint and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that’s supple, seamless and elegant, with succulent acids and a nicely defined finish. Sensual, complete and incipiently complex, it’s a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot from the commune of Cantenac. Drink: 2025-2055. 94 points”

  • Durfort-Vivens Le Plateau Margaux 2019

    £44.95

    “From holdings on the plateau of Bellevue characterized by deep sandy gravels, the 2019 Durfort Vivens Le Plateau offers up rich aromas of blackberries and cherries framed by creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a deep core of fruit, polished tannins and ripe acids, it’s the most textural, muscular wine in the trilogy. Drink: 2025-2055. 93 points”

  • Durfort-Vivens Les Plantes Margaux 2019

    £41.50

    “Exhibiting aromas of cherries, blackberries, spices and vanilla pod, the 2019 Durfort Vivens Les Plantes is medium-bodied, open-knit and vibrant, framed by powdery tannins that assert themselves with gentle back-end grip. Derived, as the name suggests, from young vines, it’s the least concentrated and complete of the trilogy. Drink: 2021-2045. 89 points”
