Margaux

Alter Ego de Palmer

£295.00

Case of 6

17

40% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot. A fragrant nose that is so quintessentially Margaux. The joy continues on the medium bodied palate which displays a sumptuous bouquet of crunchy red fruit and crushed granite with a fine, ethereal (almost Burgundian) finish. Only 6,000 cases were produced, half the usual amount. If priced correctly, this may sell out before you blink.

Pessac-Leognan

Château Haut-Bailly 2017

£445.00

Case of 6

17.5

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. Beautifully poised red berries, with a lovely intensity of raspberry fruit and fine, tightly packed tannins. Really well judged, with a very attractive perfume-coating to the tannins. Yields averaged 20 hl/ha overall due to frost. It is being aged in 50% new oak. 

St-Julien

Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases 2017

£445.00

Case of 12

16.5

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A red-fruited nose, ripe and with peppery spice and a sous bois herbaceousness. The medium-bodied palate is resoundingly ripe, with tomato leaf detailing. Being aged in 30% new oak.

St-Julien

Léoville Las Cases 2017

£890.00

Case of 6

17.5

79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot. Cassis and blackcurrant on the nose, with a deft crushed-violet aromatic lift. The palate is immediate and approachable on the attack, with deep forest fruits, firm, aristocratic tannins and a long, long finish. Cropped at 37hl/ha. It is being aged in 90% new oak. 

Margaux

Château Lascombes

£600.00

Case of 12

16.5

A ripe red and blue-fruited nose, with a sensitive lick of cedary oak. The palate is invitingly open on the entry, before forceful, firm tannins assert themselves on the mid-palate. Give this some time for the oak to integrate. A more modern, assertive style, but nothing wrong with that – a success this year. 

St-Emilion

Château Canon-La-Gaffelière 2017

£327.00

Case of 6

15.5

60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. High-toned dark cherries, with glossy black fruit. A modern style, with grippy tannins, unapologetically high-octane. The score reflects the likely spread of opinion! Cropped at a tiny 16hl/ha and being aged in 55% new oak. 

Pauillac

d' Armailhac

£385.00

Case of 12

16.5

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. A pure raspberry-fruited nose, with hints of violets. The medium-bodied palate is immediate and bracingly red-fruited, crunchy, with bright acidity and fine tannins. Good wine, which will be approachable early. 

Margaux

Château Prieuré-Lichine 2017

£330.00

Case of 12

16.5

63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Raspberries and blackcurrant on the nose, with a herbaceous seam, leading into a palate of bright red berries, buoyed by nicely lifted acidity. Well balanced, with a marked lightness of touch and rose petal perfume persisting on the finish.

Margaux

Château Rauzan-Gassies 2017

£440.00

Case of 12

17

An infectiously lovely nose of red berries and violets, with a hint of grapefruit. The palate is medium-bodied and focused on the entry, with juicy, poised acidity balancing against fine, fruit-coated tannins. A really good wine with everything in its right place, which will likely drink earlier than the 2016.

Pauillac

Blanc de Lynch Bages 2017

£175.00

Case of 6

16

40% Sauvignon Blanc, 41% Semillon and 19% Muscadelle. Crisp green citrus and orchard fruit on the nose, with grassy aromatics giving away the significant proportion of Sauvignon Blanc here. The palate is nicely weighted with a deft line of acidity and glimpses of tropical fruit. This is being aged in 45% new oak. 

Pauillac

Château Lynch Bages 2017

£890.00

Case of 12

17.5

The 2017 Lynch Bages, from proprietor Jean-Michel Cazes, has an intense, classically-proportioned nose, of blackcurrant detailed by graphite and cigar box notes. The palate is mid-weight, with supple, elegantly extracted tannin, cedar and pepper persisting on the finish. It is being aged in 75% new oak for 18 months. A success of the vintage, which deserves to sell well.

Pauillac

Echo de Lynch Bages 2017

£300.00

Case of 12

16.5

The second wine of Lynch Bages has a delicate blackcurrant and fine rocky mineral nose, with a touch of cedar. The medium-bodied palate has a light touch of tannin speaking of gentle extraction, with a finely textured mid-palate. This is being aged in one-year old barrels for 12 months.

St-Julien

Clos du Marquis 2017

£425.00

Case of 12

17

An attractive nose of pure red berries and rose petals. The palate is cool and focused, nicely weighted and with crunchy, seated red berries emerging on the mid-palate. The tannins are very fine and play a supporting role. A well-judged wine, which is being aged in 55% new oak. Harvested mid-September to 4th October.
