2011 vintage of Château Léoube Rosé
"In time for the warmer months is the release of two new rosé vintages from French winery Château Léoube: the rosé de Léoube 2011 and Le Secret de Léoube Rosé 2011. Rosé de Léoube 2011 is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvedre, while Le Secret de Léoube Rosé 2011 is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery lies in a coastal cove on Cap Bénat, on a protected site in the Var region and the wine is cultivated with time-honoured traditions, in an environmentally friendly way."
Secret de Léoube Rosé Recommended in the Belfast Telegraph
Secret de Leoube Ch Leoube Rosé 2011
"Crisp, dry and a little more serious, Le Secret de Leoube Rose 2011, Cap Benat (£19.99, www.corneyandbarrow.com) hails from the olive groves and vineyards of Domaine Leoube, owned by the founders of Daylesford Organic. A well-rounded rose with juicy stone fruits at the peak of ripeness, the bottle’s embossed with stylish white script for real impact and the chic presentation imbibes the beauty and glamour of a Riviera lifestyle."

Muddy Water voted a top Pinot Noir in a top vintage
Hare’s Breath Muddy Water 2010
"Lighter in style and picked earlier than the regular Muddy Water label. Edgier and more aromatic, with an appealing subtlety but certainly not lacking in power. Supple and elegant, capturing the charm and feminine side of Pinot Noir. Delicious."
Slowhand Muddy Water 2010
"20-year old vines on their own roots, unfined and unfiltered. This is mid-weight in style with an ethereal texture and a linear and lengthy palate. Subtle red cherry fruit, floral and mineral notes and a suggestion of spice."
Pinot Noir Muddy Water 2010
"Soft with plum, cherry, berry and spice flavours including a hint of eucalyptus from gum trees planted near part of the vineyard. Bright, fresh, high-energy flavours. Some whole bunches were used in the fermentation to add extra complexity."

Top Bordeaux's Reviewed in Decanter
Château Phélan Ségur 2001
"The extensive, principally gravelly parcels of Phélan-Ségur make attractive wines of poised classicism year after year. Recent vintages have upped the concentration levels commendably, but for a wine if beautiful intrinsic balance which is drinking superbly at present, try this 02001: graceful aromas of red fruits, hazels and cigar leaf, with a poised, fresh and now open-textured flavour of gratifying digestibility."

Château Pétrus 2008
"Knockout nose: exotic and spicy, with floral, blackcurrant, coffee and chocolatey aromas. Then rich and multi-layered; creamy yet elegant. If you can find it, go for the 2009, which is as good as wine can hope to get."
Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2008
"Pretty violet and blackberry aromas, silky smooth refinement, and exotic berry fruit. Flavours backed up by firm, harmonious acids."
Château Trotanoy 2008
"Beautifully focused, amazing density of fruit; long, rich and layered. Few Bordeaux estates have enjoyed as successful a run of vintages as Trotanoy has over the last decade."
