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

19 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)

54 75cl CHATEAU JEAN FAURE
St Emilion

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2016 Jean Faure is a gorgeous wine endowed with considerable near and medium-term appeal. Raspberry jam, leather, smoke, espresso and exotic floral/savoury notes all race through this perfumed, expressive Saint-Émilion. The Cabernet Franc is particularly expressive here.

2016 £42.00 AG92
2020-30

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!

57 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 £40.00 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!

20 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 £44.00 WS91
2013-25

48 75cl PETIT-FIGEAC
St Emilion
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau FIGEAC.

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni
- The 2016 Petit-Figeac is a gorgeous, silky second wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet floral notes add freshness and lift to this expressive Saint-Émilion. In 2016, Petit-Figeac has a bit more Franc than usual which also contributes to the wine's perfumed personality. This is impeccably done.
2016 £48.00 AG92

60 75cl PETIT-FIGEAC
St Emilion
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau FIGEAC.

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni
- The 2015 Petit-Figeac has come together nicely since I last tasted it. Fruity, forward and supple, it is tasty second wine meant to be enjoyed in its youth. The slightly roasted character I saw en primeur is less evident today.
2015 £42.00 AG89
2018-25
12 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2017 Figeac is outrageously beautiful. Rich, deep and ample, the 2017 soars out of the glass with vertical intensity and explosive power. The flavours are just pulsing with energy. Time in the glass brings out a captivating range of lavender, spice, mint and rose petal overtones. The 2017 Figeac is a towering achievement from Technical Director Frédéric Faye and his team. When Michel Rolland was appointed consulting winemaker some years back, many feared the personality of Figeac would be lost. It is impossible for an outsider to truly know how small or large the impact of a single person is, but Figeac has indisputably been one of the very finest wines of the Right Bank over these last few years. The 2017 is a real "wow" wine; don't miss it.

2017 £156.00 AG97
2025-47
10 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP/Neal Martin - Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Figeac put in a marvellous showing under strict blind conditions and it has clearly blossomed in bottle. It has an immediately engaging bouquet with vivid blackberry and raspberry fruit, wonderful mineralité and fine delineation. This is very composed, with a touch of graphite that almost takes you towards Pauillac rather than Saint Emilion. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, harmonious and lively with commendable precision towards the finish. This is a sophisticated and well-crafted Figeac that appears to be on an upward trajectory. Tasted January 2016.

2012 £118.00 RP/NM93
2022-46
11 75cl CHATEAU FIGEAC
St Emilion

RP/Neal Martin - Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property and then in Bordeaux a year later. The 2010 Figeac was a "problem child" in its youth, very variable and difficult to pin down, vexing on occasion. 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. The aromatics need to up their game and match what's evolving on the palate—if they do, this will be a very serious Figeac. Tasted July 2016.

2010 £194.00 RP/NM95
2020-45
24 75cl CLOS FOURTET
St Emilion

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2017 Clos Fourtet is vivid, rich and super-expressive. Beams of salinity give the 2017 its energy and shape. In the glass, the 2017 is wonderfully vivid and nuanced. Lavender, mint, blue fruits and blood orange all build into the beautifully layered, exquisite finish. In 2017, Clos Fourtet is all class. This is a terrific showing from the Cuvelier family. Tasted three times.

2017 £89.00 AG96

CHATEAU LAROZE
St Emilion


RP/Lisa Perrotti-Brown The medium to deep garnet-purple coloured 2015 Laroze hits the ground running with vibrant, expressive red currants, black raspberries and warm plums scents with touches of violets, chocolate-covered cherries and lavender plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and elegantly styled with plush, come-hither tannins and plenty of youthful, exuberant red and black fruit layers, it finishes with bags of perfume and polish.
Very classy!

MOULIN St GEORGES
St Emilion


This estate adjoins Chateau Ausone
and is made by the same top winemaker.
Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2017 Moulin Saint-Georges has turned out nicely. Plump, juicy and forward, the 2017 will drink nicely right out of the gate. Inky blue and purplish fruit, licorice, spice and floral overtones are front and centre in this mid-weight, supple Saint-Émilion from the Vauthier family.

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.

2015 £38.00 RP/NM92

MOULIN St GEORGES
St Emilion


This estate adjoins Chateau Ausone
and is made by the same top winemaker.
AG/Ian D'Agata - Inky-purple. Intense aromas of violet, ripe citrus fruit, strawberry and cedar. Then fresh and bright in the mouth, with rich raspberry, dark plum and mineral flavours. The mounting tannins stay smooth on the long finish. One of the best Moulin Saint-Georges I remember at a similar stage of development, if not the best. Very well done.

2010 £42.00 AG/IA91
2015-28
82 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.
