Château-Haut-Bergey Pessac Leognan 2014
Château-Belgrave Haut Medoc 2009
Château-Belgrave Haut Medoc 2010The wine is almost black, and deep. It reveals a complex bouquet, though still restrained by the wine's youth, and exudes powerful, fruit-laden, spicy notes with a hint of mint. The wine is generous, silky and very well balanced on the palate, and gains structure from the extremely fine-grained Cabernet tannins, which envelop the palate and are present throughout the tasting. The body, structure and freshness of the wine are remarkably wellbalanced, and add to the exceptionally long finish. An extremely elegant Belgrave wine, born of a vintage of great ageing potential.
Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2014Château Meyney's vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.
Chateau Reysson Haut Medoc A.C. 2012Robert Parker's Notes- 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet, 5% Cabernet Franc - this dark plum/ruby-colored wine presents a juicy, fruit forward, endearing style of cru bourgeois with attractive notes of ripe fruit, spice box and earth along with light, velvety tannins. Drink 2015-2021. A sleeper of the vintage.
Chateau Reysson Haut Medoc A.C. 2011Nick's Pick and Staff Selection! - 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet, 5% Cabernet Franc - Very accessible for drinking now. Loads of silky soft tannins, mocha dominates, dried blackberries with wild raspberry nuances, touches of graphite, and very toasty oak on the finish. 14-18 months in 30-40% new oak, then 2 years in neutral oak. Sustainably farmed in clay and loam soils. Drink 2018 to 2023 - D'Arcy Barrett
