''It is an attractive, subtle, medium-bodied Bordeaux with already emerging complexity, plenty of mulberry and black cherry fruit, sweet tannin, and a surprisingly long finish.'' Wine Advocate Magazine
Bernard Baudry Les Granges Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015
2015 was a wonderful vintage for this address with superb ripeness. It's packed with fleshy, floral-noted, purple fruit aromas and flavours and finishes with crunchy freshness and mouth-filling perfume.
Aromas of strawberries, raspberries, dark chocolate, roast herbs. On the palate plump, concentrated and rich. The finish is a real cocktail of red fruit, cocoa and roast spices. A good, long, lingering finish.
Chateau Fleur Cardinale Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2007
''I can't recall knowing this cru with such a body and precise frame in the past. The tannins are particularly well defined. This is a very unique expression of Saint-Emilion.'' 92 Points, Jean-Marc Quarin
Amazingly intense. Lifted and perfumed. Something a bit floral on the nose. Lots of zest and great structure plus masses of ripe fruit. Dry finish. Lots in reserve here. Real freshness,'' Jancis Robinson
Chateau Haut Faugères Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2010
''This features aromas of liquorice, chocolate, boysenberry aromatics, plush, soft, round textures and a ripe, chocolate and black cherry finish are found in this wine.'' 91 Points, The Wine Cellar Insider
''This offers up smoky, kirsch, cassis and floral notes. Beautifully textured, loads of ripe fruit; this is a sexy, hedonistic style of wine to drink over the next decade.'' 92 Points, Wine Advocate Magazine
"Wonderful aromas of ripe fruit that are deep and delicious. Hints of walnuts and meats. Full body, with soft tannins and a juicy, velvety textured finish. Lots going on here." 93 Points, James Suckling
