    These 'drinkers' represent very good value, as they are very well made, without having to pay for the 'name' of their more famous cousins.

La CHENADE
Lalande de Pomerol

RP/William Kelley - The 2019 La Chenade is a lovely Lalande-de-Pomerol from the Darantou family, bursting with aromas of plumy fruit, wild berries, rose petals, smoke and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with supple tannins, succulent acids and a nicely defined finish, this charming wine represents one of the great values of right bank Bordeaux.

CHATEAU SAINTAYME
Saint Emilion

RP/William Kelley - Produced by the Durantou family, the 2019 Saintayme is a Saint-Émilion derived from soils rich in large stones in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse. Offering up aromas of sweet raspberries, raw cocoa, spices and rose petals, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, with a fleshy core of fruit and fine, powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish. This will reward a bit of bottle age. It's 100% Merlot, all planted on vigour-reducing riparia rootstocks.

VIEUX CHATEAU SAINT ANDRE
Montagne Saint Emilion

Jane Anson
- Exceptionally good, there is such heart to this wine, with rugged-textured tannins, edges of slate and salted black chocolate, sculpted blueberry fruits, touch of sage and fresh earth. Great stuff from owners and winemakers Jean-Claude and Jeff Berrouet. Will soften over next few years, but no need to wait too long to get going on this lovely wine. 20% new oak.

2020 £22.00 JA94

MONTLANDRIE
Cotes de Castillon

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The 2019 Montlandrie is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It comes bounding out of the glass with bright, cheerful scents of warm redcurrants, Morello cherries, wild blueberries, and boysenberries with touches of lavender, red roses, cinnamon stick and cast-iron pan. Wow. I LOVE this energy on the elegantly styled, medium-bodied palate. The red and black fruit layers practically dance, intermingled with grainy (Cabernet-like) tannins and tons of freshness. It has a satisfyingly long, fragrant finish.
Truly impressive!

CAPBERN
Saint Estephe

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown -
The 2018 Capbern is composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot and comes in at 14.6% alcohol. It's anticipated to age for 16 months in barriques, 60% new. Deep purple-black in colour, it leaps from the glass with vibrant scents of black raspberries, kirsch and fresh blackcurrants with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead and forest floor plus a waft of lavender.
Full-bodied, rich and packed with juicy fruit, it has a firm line of grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.

CAPBERN
Saint Estephe

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown -
Very deep purple-black in colour, the 2019 Capbern explodes from the glass with notes of prunes, baked black cherries and fruitcake plus suggestions of mocha, Chinese five spice, tobacco leaf and cedar chest with a touch of peppercorns. Full-bodied, rich and voluptuous (15.1% alcohol!), the palate has a firm, chewy backbone and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.

GRAND VILLAGE
Bordeaux Superieur

RP/William Kelley -
Increasingly replanted or grafted over to vine genetics from Lafleur, and lavished with the same viticultural attention to detail, this estate is fast becoming a loss-making (but in many respects enriching) venture for the Guinaudeau family. Offering up aromas of cherries, wild berries, petals and sweet spices, the 2019 Grand Village is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a long, mineral finish. It's a brilliant wine that makes a mockery of the traditional appellation hierarchy.

RP/WK93
2023-49

William Kelley -Is there a better value in contemporary Bordeaux than Grand Village?
This 17-hectare estate is run by the Guinaudeau family, who in recent years have decided to work here just as they do at Château Lafleur (Top Pomerol estate).

 

24 75cl

LACOSTE BORIE
Pauillac
Chateau Grand-Puy Lacoste

RP/William Kelley -
The 2019 Lacoste-Borie is a wine of immense charm. Wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis, licorice and sweet spices, loamy soil and cigar wrapper, it’s medium to full-bodied, fleshy and seamless, with ripe tannins, succulent acids and a round, giving profile.

2019 £22.00 WK90
