80 75cl L'ARROSEE
St Emilion

RP -
The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 possesses copious notes of graphite, blueberries and black raspberry liqueur intermixed with subtle smoky oak.
A more structured effort than other recent vintages, deep, pure, full-bodied and impressive, this property has regained its momentum over the last 4-5 years, and their 2010 is another powerful yet elegant effort that admirably translates its terroir.

66 75cl BARDE-HAUT
St Emilion

RP -
Loads of blueberry, black cherry and dusty, loamy soil notes as well as hints of herbs, liquorice and incense jump from the glass of this well-endowed, supple wine. Tannins are sweet and the acidity sufficient to give delineation to the wine. Full-bodied and impressively endowed, it should drink well over the next 10-15 years.

The 2010 Barde-Haut is a delicious, seductive style of St.-Emilion made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Proprietress Helene Garcin-Leveque purchased the estate in 2000 and has been pushing quality ever since

6 75cl BARDE-HAUT
St Emilion

RP -
Made from tiny yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare (May hail damage resulted in this small crop), the opaque purple-coloured 2009 reveals an extraordinary nose of mulberries, black cherries, charcoal, barbecue smoke and forest floor. Rich, full-bodied and opulent with silky tannins as well as a broad, unctuous texture, this beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 15+ years. It is fashioned from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

75 75cl BEAUSEJOUR CUVEE 1901
Montagne St Emilion

100% Merlot; from wines planted in 1901!
This  wine represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2007.
Coming from older vines, it has a very pure and profound taste, without being too tannic; as 2007 is a good 'drinking' vintage.
2007 £24.00

2010-20

From 110 year old vines - TRY the DIFFERENCE!

29 75cl BELLEVUE
St Emilion

RP -
Made under the guidance of Hubert du Bouard, this blend of primarily Merlot and a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc (around 9%) from the limestone soils on the hillsides of St.-Emilion exhibits a dense purple colour, lots of chalky minerality and a big, sweet perfume of boysenberries, blackberries, liquorice and burning embers. It is full-bodied and opulent with an abundance of fruit, glycerine, power and silkiness. Some tannins lurking in the finish suggest a half dozen years of cellaring will be required.
2009 £48.00

2018-35

77 75cl BERLIQUET
St Emilion

RP -
The wine displays oodles of strawberry jam intermixed with kirsch, dusty, loamy soil notes, garrigue, spice box and vanillin. It is full-bodied, opulent, very flamboyant and showy, with a hint of chalky minerality to add complexity and precision.

Showing far better than it did from barrel, this wine comes from a beautiful southwest-facing hillside slope near Angelus. With the 2009, Berliquet has turned out one of their best wines in many a year. Yields were only 21.5 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine is a final blend of 73% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon that tipped the scales at 14% natural alcohol under the guidance of Stephane Derenoncourt.

52 75cl LA BIENFAISANCE
St Emilion

RP -
A stunning effort from this property in St.-Christophe des Bardes, this 25-acre vineyard is planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Made in a flamboyant style for the vintage, it reveals a dense purple colour along with an expressive, ostentatious nose of sweet cherry liqueur intermixed with crème de cassis, toast, spring flowers, incense, melted liquorice, and chocolate. Full-bodied with high but sweet, velvety tannins, it is already approachable, but promises to develop more nuances over the next decade.
2005 £34.00 RP92
2008-28
11 75cl CHAUVIN
St Emilion

RP -
A superb wine, this opaque purple-coloured effort boasts a vividly pure nose of graphite, melted liquorice, crème de cassis, espresso, and wet stones backed up by subtle, high quality, spicy, new oak. Multi-layered, full-bodied, dense, concentrated, and pure, with sweet tannin and superb length, this future classic will be at its best between 2008-2019.
2000 £43.00 RP92
2008-19
2 75cl CLOS FOURTET
St Emilion

RP -
Having just had the 2003 and 2005 from my cellar, I can attest to the magnificent turnaround in quality this famous estate on the eastern side of St.-Emilion has achieved. All of it is attributable to its dynamic proprietor, Philippe Cuvelier.
The 2012 Clos Fourtet (usually 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) has beautiful blackberry and blueberry fruit and an inky purple colour. With flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning richness, this is impressive and certainly one of the vintage's top wines.

69 75cl CLOS LA MADELEINE
St Emilion

RP -
This tiny St.-Emilion gem has fashioned excellent wines in both 2009 and 2010. The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 exhibits crushed rock, raspberry and blueberry notes along with an unmistakable minerality. Medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant, pure and textured, it should drink well for 12-15+ years.
2010 £38.00 RP91
2013-26

Very exclusive wine as small production!

44 75cl CLOS LA MADELEINE
St Emilion

RP -
The wine is an impressive blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, made under the supervision of Hubert de Bouard. I don’t think Clos La Madeleine has ever made a better wine. This 2009 has liqueur of dusty chalk intermixed with red and black fruits, hints of blackberry and black cherry, and loads of full-bodied opulence yet great structure and definition. This is a sleeper of the vintage and a personal best for Clos La Madeleine, long under the radar of wine consumers.
2009 £42.00 RP93+
2018-35

Very exclusive wine as small production!

116 75cl LA DOMINIQUE
St. Emilion

RP -
The wine displays plenty of liquorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, liquorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerine and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don’t discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it.
2010 £40.00 RP93
2013-33
64 75cl LA DOMINIQUE
St. Emilion

RP -
Finally we have returned to the great La Dominique's made in 1989 and 1990. This has much of the style of the 1990, with supple tannin and loads of spicy fruitcake, liquorice, cassis and kirsch-like notes that jump from this dense ruby/purple wine. Fat, fleshy and full-bodied, with beautiful richness, purity and length, this wine will be approachable in its youth yet last for two decades (just like the 1989 and 1990)
2009 £38.00 RP93
2012-35
23 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

84 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 £38.00 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!

68 75cl PETIT-FIGEAC
St Emilion
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau FIGEAC.

Wine Spectator - Solid, featuring pomegranate, cherry paste and plum flavours, lined with anise, alder and iron notes. Not big, but has range and purity, with fresh fruit lingering on the finish.
2012 £35.00 WS89
2015-24
96 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP - Tasted at the property, the 2013 Figeac was the first vintage that saw Michel Rolland assist with the blending. It has a very respectable bouquet for the vintage. Serve this blind and see if your guest would suggest it was from this derided vintage. The nose is delineated and fresh with blackberry, wild strawberry and minty scents emanating from the Cabernet component. The palate is well balanced with crisp tannin, well balanced with good substance for a 2013. What I appreciate here is that it maintains the style of Figeac: structured with just a touch of austerity, backed up by a crisp line of acidity and a cedar-tinged finish.
 If you are intending to purchase a 2013 Right Bank, then I would park you car here.

2013 £72.00 RP/NM91
2018-32
12 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

Wine Spectator - A beguiling tobacco leaf note weaves up and away from the core of steeped plum and mulled currant fruit, while a sleek iron accent forms the spine and a loamy element creates the backdrop. Shows some pleasant latent grip while the currant detail echoes.

2012 £77.00 WS93
2018-30
8 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

Wine Spectator - The plum and black cherry fruit has a floral edge, giving this version an elegant feel overall, while subtle tobacco, singed tea leaf and wood spice notes fill out the lengthy finish. This lovely wine has dropped serious muscle since the barrel tasting and is showing elegance and finesse that belies its age.

The dense plum/purple-hued 2009 Fonroque offers up notes of sandy, loamy soil, sagebrush, sweet cherries and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, rich and moderately tannic, it is one of the more firmly structured, reserved 2009s. Everything needed for a long evolution (two decades or more) is present, but this offering should be forgotten for 5-7 years.

Alain Moueix, who farms this vineyard bio-dynamically, has lowered yields considerably and tamed the rustic tannins and muscular style that had been trademarks for many decades.
The medium to full-bodied 2005, a blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, offers beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, loamy soil, spice box, liquorice, and roasted herbs, substantial but sweet tannin, good acidity, and a long finish.

79 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.
