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


    “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 2015


    “Solidly built, with a core of dark plum and blackberry preserve flavors leading the way, backed by a tasty ganache note. Notable flashes of tobacco and warm earth course through the fleshy finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,633 cases made. 92 points”

  • Chateau La Grave a Pomerol 2016


    “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


    “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 Larose Perganson Haut-Medoc 2015


    “66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

    Very dark crimson. Luscious and round and fresh but with lots of ripe fruit. Silky Margaux-like texture. Creditable. Lip smacking and quite stony. Drink: 2017-2024. 16.5 points”

  • Chateau Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Medoc 2016


    “The 2016 Larose-Trintaudon has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and pencil box aromas, not quite as intense as the best Haut-Médoc but certainly translating the quality of the growing season. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, rounded and almost velvety in texture, plush and pure with ample red cherries and wild strawberry on the finish. This is a very approachable, early-drinking Cru Bourgeois but there is class here and the substance to suggest it will age well. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. Drink: 2020-2030. 89 points”

  • Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2014


    “Bright red cherry, raspberry and expressive floral notes from the Cabernet Franc are some of the signatures in the 2014 Latour à Pomerol. A wine of precision, tension and energy, the 2014 exudes class. Hints of white pepper and cranberry add further brightness as the wine gradually opens up. The 2014 has become more polished and finessed over the last two years than it was from barrel. Today, it is sublime. Drinking window: 2024-2044. 95 points”

  • Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2016


    “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 Rocheyron Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014


    “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. 92 points”

  • Chateau Rocheyron Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016


    “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”
