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!

2014 £42.00

49 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!

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
2011-23
79 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.

2009 £35.00 WS91

56 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
9 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP - 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 £106.00 RP/NM94
2022-45
4 75cl CHATEAU FONROQUE
St Emilion

RP -
This biodynamically farmed vineyard owned by Alain Moueix has turned out an attractive, deep plum/ruby-hued 2011 offering dusty, earthy notes intermixed with hints of tobacco leaf, liquorice and red and black currants. With attractive levels of fruit, this mid-weight St.-Emilion can be drunk over the next decade.
2011 £21.00 RP88
2012-22

From one of the few bio-dynamically farmed vineyards in St.-Emilion!

Very pure and tasty wines at reasonable prices.

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.

MOULIN St GEORGES
St Emilion


This estate adjoins Chateau Ausone
and is made by the same top winemaker.
RP - An excellent wine from the Alain Vauthier family, this wine, which tends to be dominated by Merlot with some Cabernet Franc, has a dense, ruby/purple colour and a nice sweet nose of blackcurrants, raspberry and incense. It is medium-bodied with excellent concentration and a long, nicely textured heady finish.

MOULIN St GEORGES

This estate adjoins Chateau Ausone

RP - Copious aromas of liquorice, charcoal, damp earth, black raspberries, black currants and a hint of espresso jump from the glass of this deep purple-coloured 2009. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, plenty of baby fat and a seductive personality.

9 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.
2012 £28.00 RP89

3 75cl QUINAULT L'ENCLOS
St Emilion

RP -
The style here has changed completely since it was purchased from Dr. Alain Raynaud by the owners of Cheval Blanc. The 2009, a blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc from this enclosed vineyard situated within the town of Libourne, displays loads of blueberry and raspberry fruit along with crushed rock and a host of floral notes. Deliciously fruity, medium-bodied, and very elegant, with a nice succulence, this is not a big wine by any means, but it is very stylish, pure, velvety textured and precocious.

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.
