  • Tenuta di Biserno Il Pino di Biserno 2021

    £48.25

    “The Tenuta di Biserno 2021 Il Pino di Biserno is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet-adjacent aromas come through nicely with dark fruit, blackberry and exotic spice. The wine is full-bodied in texture and structure, although it manages slightly more contained richness on the mid-palate. That gives Il Pino a more accessible disposition. It closes with a bright note of sweet cherry.Drink: 2022-2031. 94 points”

  • Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino 2018

    £43.95

    “A darkly floral bouquet of musky red currants and hints of savory spice wafts up from the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino. lt’s silky and pliant, with herbal-tinged red and black fruits that flow across a core of saline-minerality. The 2018 finishes long and staining to the senses, with a web of fine tannins offset by hints of citrus-tinged blackberry. There’s an underlying power here seldom seen in the 2018 vintage, but patience will be required. Drinking window: 2025-2031. 93 points”

  • Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Duelecci Est 2016

    £78.95

    “The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Duelecci Est keeps you coming back to the glass with its seductive bouquet of mineral-tinged cherries, blackberries and exotic spice. With coaxing, balsam herbs, tobacco and hints of dried citrus come to the fore. It’s deeply textural, almost creamy in feel, yet perfectly balanced, offering rich dark fruits offset by hints of sour tangerine, as an air of earth tones and violets forms toward the close. This is structured and long, youthful and chewy, yet still primary and intense, promising many years of positive development in collectors’ cellars. Well done. Drinking window: 2024-2032. 94 points”

  • Tenuta di Trinoro Le Cupole 2021

    £37.95

    “The 2021 Le Cupole (a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot) is the well-priced entry-level red from one of the most prolific and creative wine estates in Tuscany. Le Cupole is velvety and full-bodied with dark fruit, dried cherry and sweet earth or terracotta. This is an incredible value. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, and the wine is matured in neutral barrique and cement. Some 100,000 bottles were released. Drink: 2023-2035. 94 points

    Andrea Franchetti, one of the most beloved figures in Italian wine, passed away at the end of 2021 at 72 years old. Andrea created Tenuta di Trinoro, an iconic estate in Tuscany and was an Etna trailblazer. He founded Passopisciaro (now Vini Franchetti) on the Sicilian volcano. His son Benjamin Franchetti continues in his footsteps with winemakers Lorenzo Fornaini and Cologero Portanesse. Carlo Franchetti makes Pinot Noir under the name Sancaba in San Casciano dei Bagni.

  • Tenute Sella Bramaterra 2015

    £33.95

    “The 2015 Bramaterra is beguiling, complex and full of character. Sweet dried cherry, tobacco, cedar, wild flowers, star anise and mint are very nicely lifted in this attractive, weightless Bramaterra from Sella. This is an especially savory style, with the fruit pushed into the background. Drinking window: 2022-2030. 91 points”

  • Tenute Sella Lessona Omaggio a Quintino Sella 2006

    £89.95

    “Tenuta Sella’s 2006 Lessona Omaggio a Quintino Sella is a poignant reminder that we really need to drink more wines from northern Piedmont. Even better than it was last year ago, the 2006 soars out of the glass with a heady mélange of new leather, tobacco, savory herbs, black cherries and spices, all underpinned by bright saline notes that refresh the palate after every taste. 96 points”

  • Tertre Roteboeuf Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2017

    £149.99

    “The 2017 Tertre-Rôteboeuf is once again one of the wines of the year. Deep, unctuous and concentrated, the 2017 is wonderfully rich from start to finish. Inky dark cherry, chocolate, licorice and cloves all open up in the glass. The 2017 is going to need a few years to soften, as the tannins are pretty imposing, and yet all the elements are in place for it to develop into a great wine. Tertre-Rôteboeuf remains one of the most distinctive wines in all of Bordeaux. Wow. Drinking window: 2025-2047. 97 points”

  • Thierry Allemand Cornas Chaillot 2014

    £229.95

    “Vivid purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blackberry, complicated by notes of candied flowers, incense and smoky Indian spices. Sappy and expressive, offering intense red and dark berry and violet flavors underscored by juicy acidity. Impressive urgency is supported by a nervy spine of acidity. Shows excellent focus and vivacity on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with superb floral tenacity. 93-95 points.

    Calling 2014 “a seriously challenging and stressful vintage,” Thierry Allemand added that it “required a lot of work in the vineyards because the fruit flies attacked strongly and the fruit had to be very carefully selected.” Coupled with the delayed ripening caused by the cool summer, “it is definitely a vintage where the best growers stood out.” The relative softness of acids and tannins in the ’14s will make them better wines to enjoy young than the ’13s, he thinks, “and they show very good depth and richness” that might make them age surprisingly well, “since they have plenty of fruit to age on.””

  • Thierry Germain Saumur-Champigny Franc de Pied 2021

    £37.95

    “The 2021 Franc de Pied is mellow and supple yet precise, with its line of 2021 vintage acidity piercing its core and pulling it tight. Savory and herbal, it shows aromas reminiscent of fennel, wormwood, black olives and violets. It has a floaty-light, gentle nature, a sense of roundness and notable purity of fruit, which all elevate it above the crowd. The delicate extraction of fine tannins is commendable. While the 2021 is neither as long as in the previous vintage nor as deep, it is still in the upper echelon of what could be produced in 2021. Drinking window: 2023-2033. 93 points

    Thierry Germain might be a Bordelais by birth, but having ended up in Saumur Champigny “par hasard”, he is now one of the appellation’s leading lights. The range of wines from Domaine des Roches Neuves has the transparency, delicacy and ease you encounter too infrequently. Red wine represents the majority of production at this estate, with vineyards scattered around the appellation. Still, a lightness of touch and purity of fruit are common threads, no matter the soil type or orientation. Even at the ‘entry-level’ Saumur Champigny, whose label changes color every year just to keep us confused, the hands-off hand of Germain is clear. You’re sure to be indoctrinated in the ways of biodynamics if you encounter the affable Germain, but whatever your thoughts on this farming, the results speak for themselves.

    While Louis Germain, Thierry’s son, called 2021 a nightmare, the resulting wines are some of the best in the region: charming, balanced and delicately poised. But that should be expected from this domaine.”

  • Thierry Germain Saumur-Champigny La Marginale 2021

    £35.49

    “From a clay-limestone site, the 2021 La Marginale is simply delicious. It is a quiet seducer with it silky charm, while remaining floaty and light on its feet. There’s plenty of tannin contained within the core of this wine, coating the mouth finely. The long, fragrant finish is redolent of redcurrant, raspberry, violet and pencil lead. The 2021 is fresh and vibrant yet delicate. Drinking window: 2024-2033. 90 points

  • Thierry Germain Saumur-Champigny Les Memoires 2021

    £43.49

    “From vines planted on clay-limestone in 1904, the 2021 Les Mémoires is fragrant, refined and long. It offers up rich concentration within an elegant, rather delicate package. As you’d expect from a wine of this age, it’s youthful and bright, with primary fruit aromas of redcurrant alongside florals, black olive and even a whiff of wood smoke. There’s certainly depth and substance of tannin, but they melt in your mouth. The finish is refined and assured, with scintillating acidity providing a fabulous backbone.

  • Thierry Germain Saumur-Champigny Terres Chaudes 2021

    £27.95

    “First tasted in barrel in July 2023, and again from bottle in December, the 2021 Terres Chaudes is a highly aromatic, light-bodied style although there is a touch of juiciness through the mid-palate. True to its vintage, there’s no doubting the refreshing acidity and the touch of herbal in the flavor profile. The tannins are well handled, and the fruit is pure and adulterated, as well as lightly spiced. Drinking window: 2024-2029. 89 points
