36 75cl ALVERNE
St Emilion

Louis Mitjavile makes this near Ch Ferrand Lartigue.

Jancis Robinson MW - Tasted blind. Both sweet and sharp with lots of density. And pretty tannic on the end. Lots going on there. Interesting!

48 75cl FONBEL
St. Emilion

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown -
This property is owned and managed by the Vauthier family of Château Ausone. Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2015 Fonbel—composed mainly of Merlot with splashes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère and Petit Verdot—is scented of warm black plums, blackberry preserves, tar and bay leaves with touches of scorched earth and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied with very fine, silky tannins and amazing freshness, the palate offers stacks of red and black fruits, going minerally on the long finish.
2015 £25.00 RP92
2019-33

This is a top value-for-money wine, as it has the benefit of being managed by one of the very best estates in St Emilion (Chateau Ausone)

10 75cl LA DOMINIQUE
St. Emilion

RP -
An unqualified sleeper of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2008 La Dominique reveals black olive, liquorice, tobacco leaf, raspberry and kirsch liqueur characteristics. Deep and medium to full-bodied with supple tannins, an endearing texture and a lush, long, seamlessly constructed finish.
2008 £30.00 RP90

68 75cl CHATEAU JEAN FAURE
St Emilion

Wine Spectator- This is classy, with a lovely caressing feel to the plum, fig and black cherry fruit, which has melded nicely already with smouldering tobacco, lightly singed cedar and black tea notes. Offers a flash of loam through the finish.

2010 £35.00 WS91
2014-27

This estate is right next to Chateau Cheval Blanc, and no doubt benefits from the same excellent terroir as the latter top estate.

Lovely good value wines - please give them a try!

27 75cl CHATEAU JEAN FAURE
St Emilion

Wine Spectator - A high-toned style, with red currant, pomegranate and raspberry aromas and flavours, supported by lively acidity that brings a racy blood orange note. The finish is pure and lengthy.

37 75cl PETIT-FIGEAC
St Emilion
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau FIGEAC.

Antonio Galloni
- The 2012 Petit-Figeac is everything its name says it is. Wonderfully perfumed and expressive. The 2012 is supple, precise and beautifully delineated from start to finish. Silky tannins and a mid-weight sense of structure give the 2012 its classic feel. Scents of lavender, mint and white flower add an attractive aromatic top register. The Petit-Figeac is one of the hidden gems. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

36 75cl PETIT-FIGEAC
St Emilion
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau FIGEAC.

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown
- Composed of 32% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple coloured 2015 Petit Figeac reveals notes of warm cherries, red currant jelly, aniseed and forest floor with touches of wild blueberries and blackberries. Medium-bodied, very finely crafted, elegant and refreshing, it fills the mouth with open-knit red and black fruits, finishing with a velvety texture paving the way.

12 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP/Neal Martin - Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property and then in Bordeaux a year later. Now with a couple of years in bottle, it is really beginning to show what it can do and it far surpassed my expectations. Certainly, it is more withdrawn on the nose compared to the more generous 2009 Figeac. The aromatics are holding everything back. Then, with continued aeration it reveals a subtle marine influence—seaweed and sea spray scents, estuary mudflats. The palate is medium-bodied with moderate depth, but what really distinguishes this wine are the fineness of the tannin, the symmetry of the structure and freshness on the finish, facets hitherto kept secret. As such, it surpasses the 2009, the weightless but intense finish beckoning you to take another sip.

2010 £195.00 RP/NM95
2020-45
31 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP/Neal Martin - The 2014 Figeac builds on its promise from barrel and delivers a very fulfilling bouquet with red plum, crushed strawberry, cedar and light graphite aromas that I suspect will close down for a period after bottling. The palate is very well defined with a crisp line of acidity, sorbet fresh in the mouth and fanning out towards its structured, tensile finish.
It is a great Figeac, a superb forerunner to the brilliant 2015 and it should not be underestimated.
Chapeau winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team.

2014 £115.00 RP/NM94

12 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP/Neal Martin - The 2015 Figeac is a blend of 29% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked from 21 September with the Merlot until 15 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon at 41 hectolitres per hectare. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose - classic Figeac in many ways - black fruit, a touch of cassis, pencil and a touch of rose petal. The palate is drop-dead gorgeous, its foundation a lattice of filigree tannin and perfectly judged acidity. It is very fresh from its vivacious start to its pencil-lead finish imbued with effortless grace. Head winemaker Frédéric Faye has overseen a tip-top classic Figeac without any of the greenness that occasionally affected older vintages, now boasting a level of precision up there with the very best in the Right Bank. It was difficult to find fault with this quite astonishing Saint Emilion and who knows what could transpire once it is in bottle.

MOULIN St GEORGES
St Emilion


This estate adjoins Chateau Ausone
and is made by the same top winemaker.
RP/Neal Martin The 2015 Moulin St Georges is a blend of 80% Merlot picked 2, 5 and 10 October and 20% Cabernet Franc picked on 5 October, matured in 85% new oak. At the moment, the bouquet is showing the new oak component, with broody black fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied and seems to have absorbed the wood quicker than the nose, smooth and sensual with touches of dark chocolate lining the long finish.

110 75cl QUINAULT L'ENCLOS
St Emilion

RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown -
A blend of 69% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon aged exclusively in 500-liter barrels, 50% new, the deep garnet-purple coloured 2015 Quinault l'Enclos opens with expressive black cherries, red currants and black raspberries notes with hints of baking spices, cigar box and bay leaves plus a waft of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with vibrant red and black fruits, supported by finely grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and spicy.

3 75cl QUINAULT L'ENCLOS
St Emilion

RP -
The wine reveals a bright, flowery, berry fruitiness with hints of roasted herbs, damp earth, raspberries and cherries. Surprisingly, the alcohol hit 14% in this medium-bodied blend of 80% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc. Yields were extremely tiny, only 23 hectoliters per hectare because of the poor flowering in spring. This offering may put on a little weight as its mid-palate needs to fill out, but it is an elegant, attractive example of Quinault.

LA TOUR FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP -
A sleeper of the vintage, La Tour Figeac’s 2006 (80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) is a lusciously-styled effort displaying a deep ruby/purple colour as well as copious quantities of sweet black cherries, black currants, liquorice, toasty oak, and forest floor. The wine is opulent, nearly flamboyant, and hedonistic with the potential to become even more complex over the next 10-15 years.

VILLEMAURINE
St Emilion

RP -
Things have changed incredibly since the acquisition of this property by Justin Onclin. The terroir is fabulously situated just adjacent to the walls of this medieval village, and the wine has gone from strength-to-strength. The 2012 has a dense purple colour, a rocky and chalky minerality, medium to full body, and is long, rich and intense, elegant yet noble. Consumers have to be pleased that this long-time underachiever has finally raised its game under the new ownership. This is a property to seek out in St.-Emilion.
