BARON DE BRANE
Margaux

2nd Wine of Second Growth Chateau Brane-Cantenac
The top wine currently sells for approx. £75 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.

Wine Spectator -
Bright and intensely floral, with a lovely violet aroma and long, rich plum sauce, blackberry and currant notes. There's lush toast, but it's nicely integrated. Very suave.

2010 £32.00 WS92

CHATEAU CLARKE
Baron Edmond de Rothschild
Listrac


RP/Neal Martin -
The 2015 Clarke has an attractive blackberry and briary scented nose with just a hint of dark chocolate emanating from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, the acidity nicely judged with fine tension on the cedar and tobacco-tinged finish. I appreciate the freshness and refinement demonstrated by this Château Clarke, a classic Listrac that should give 10-12 years of pleasure.

2015 £27.00 RP/NM92

BLASON d'ISSAN
Margaux

2nd Wine of Chateau d'Issan
The top wine currently sells for approx. £58 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.


Antonio Galloni
The 2015 Blason d'Issan is a superb second wine. Dark, powerful and enveloping, the 2015 has so much to offer in its fleshy, inviting personality. Dark plum, leather and cedar are some of the many nuances that flesh out in this resonant, super-expressive Margaux.
I loved it.

CHATEAU LASCOMBES
Margaux

 RP -
 An intriguing blend of 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this inky purple-coloured wine is ripe, progressively styled, big, rich, thick and juicy. In other words, the 2012 Lascombes is loaded. No doubt the high percentage of Merlot in the final blend gives this wine a fleshiness and succulence that is unusual in the Médoc

2012 £69.00 RP94

SEGLA
Margaux

2nd Wine of Chateau Rauzan-Segla
The top wine currently sells for approx. £84 for a 75cl bottle! So this represents real value.


RP/Neal Martin
-
The 2015 Segla is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, and a "seasoning" of 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, representing just over half the total crop, matured in 25% new wood. It has a fragrant, very precise bouquet with mineral-rich, very pure blackberry, blueberry and cold flint-like aromas. There is wonderful tension here for a deuxième vin. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy opening, just a tingle of spice on the tip of the tongue. There is very fine tension here, moderate weight but great persistence and sense of energy on the finish. On a budget? Thinking of a second wine? Look no further.

2015 £42.00 RP/NM92

SEGLA
Margaux

CHATEAU
RAUZAN-SEGLA

Margaux

 RP/Neal Martin -
 The 2015 Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
 It has a very intense, almost crystalline bouquet with blackberry, briary, flint and just a touch of violet petal. There is incredible delineation here and the new wood is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with extremely fine tannin, perfectly judged acidity, otherworldly purity and a mineralité rarely seen in this Margaux estate. This is a brilliant Rauzan-Ségla, not necessarily more powerful than previous vintages, though enhanced by its precision, frisson and energy, perhaps longer on the finish. Winemaker Nicolas Audebert has conspired with the benevolent growing season to produce a benchmark wine for the estate.

2015 £82.00 RP/NM98

CHATEAU
RAUZAN-SEGLA

Margaux

 RP/Neal Martin -
 To reiterate, the 2010 Rauzan Segla is like a super-duper version of the 1986. Displaying fabulous density, an inky purple colour and a superb nose of forest floor with a hint of menthol as well as loads of crème de cassis, mocha and touches of chocolate and subtle oak, this full-bodied, deep, concentrated wine represents only 45% of the estate’s production. It is certainly not for those who can’t wait a few years for it to round into shape, as I suspect it needs at least 5-8 years of bottle-age, but it should last for half a century or more.

2010 £128.00 RP96
2018-43
