    Undoubtedly a success for the vintage, this immensely charming, dark ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits floral, black currant, and smoky, toasty oak aromas. There is admirable richness, excellent ripeness, not a great deal of density, or superb concentration, but plenty of finesse, suppleness, and character. It can be drunk young, or cellared for 12-15 years.

Red Bordeaux 1998 Batailley

[Duty Paid]

1 Case 12 75cl £425£380
  • An excellent dark plum color is followed by scents of tobacco, cedar, black currants, and earth. There is good ripeness, medium to full body, smoky, herb-tinged flavors, and fine length. The tannin is firm, but not excessive. This 1998 is tasting significantly better from bottle than it did during its elevage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2017.

    The medium-bodied, tasty, flavorful St. Julien possesses soft, briery, berry fruit intermixed with herbs, earth, and spice box, which are moderately intense. The wine is low in acidity, with sweet tannin, and fleshy fruit. It should be drunk during its first 10-12 years of life.

    This wine is a medium/dark ruby-colored offering with a nose of toasty oak, dried herbs, sweet cherries, and spice. This elegant, medium-bodied wine finishes quickly. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

    This 1999 is a gorgeously elegant style of wine, with notes of violets, black currants, and sweet oak. This delicate yet authoritatively-flavored wine is, as I said last year, the quintessential example of the finesse and nuance expected of a classified-growth Margaux. It is pure, graceful, with delicacy rather than weight, and lovely balance. It can be drunk now and over the next 12-14 years.

Red Bordeaux 2003 Pichon Baron

[Duty Paid]

1 Case 6 150cl £1,225£1,180
  • A brilliant effort, this 2003 displays a vigorous, intact, deep blue/purple color as well as notes of scorched earth, barbecue spices, incense, creme de cassis and cedarwood. Long, lush, medium to full-bodied, round and generous, this opulent Pauillac can be drunk now and over the next 5-8 years. Drink 2014-2022

    Score: 94 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014

    This is a brilliantly run property year in and year out, and especially since the mid- to late 1980s has produced one of the top four or five wines made in Pauillac in virtually every vintage. With 13.4% alcohol, the 2003 is one of the most powerful efforts this chateau has ever made. Its dense purple color is accompanied by sweet, jammy creme de cassis notes intermixed with roasted herbs, smoked meats, and chocolate. Although ripe, dense, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, it is silky (because of its low acidity and high glycerin) as well as accessible. It should firm up in the bottle, and be at its peak between 2008-2025.

    Tasting note: A ripe and highly complex nose redolent of a mix of both primary and secondary black and blue fruit aromas nuanced by obvious spice and earth notes that are also reflected by the maturing yet still noticeably tannic medium full-bodied flavors that culminate in dusty, linear and focused finish that displays just a touch of backend dryness that will probably always be present. I recommend drinking this with the appropriate food.

Red Burgundy Roumier 2009 Bonnes Mares

[Duty Paid]

1 Bottle 75cl £1,450£1,425
  • Allen Meadows: 96

    This is also remarkably fresh with very ripe but not over ripe aromas of cassis, spice, stone and raspberry liqueur. There is a palpable sense of energy running through the rich, powerful and brooding broad-shouldered flavors that benefit from a huge dollop of dry extract that pushes the very firm tannic spine to the background on the explosive and youthfully austere finish that possesses genuinely outstanding length. I very much like the balance here and this should age effortlessly for decades. Drink: 2027+

Red Burgundy Roumier 2010 Bonnes Mares

[Duty Paid]

1 Bottle 75cl £1,400£1,375
  • The 2010 Bonnes-Mares is explosive and totally exciting. A big, broad-shouldered frame supports a core of black fruit, mint, flowers and licorice in this powerful, massively structured wine. Here, too, it is the wine's energy and focus that truly stand out most. The finish turns weightless and totally sublime. As usual, I tasted the Bonnes-Mares from its two main components, and then in the blend, and it was the blend that was most convincing of the three wines. The 2010 Bonnes-Mares is a wine built for a long rest in the cellar before it begins to approach the early part of what promises to be a long drinking window.

White Burgundy Raveneau 2011 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre

1 Bottle 150cl £485£425
  • Tasting note: The expressive and ripe nose displays various floral nuances, citrus, stone, oyster shell and ocean breeze scents that are trimmed in just a hint of wood. There is really beautiful detail to the stony, sappy and sleekly muscular middle weight flavors that display a lovely sense of harmony and vibrancy on the moderately dry and impressively persistent finish. Tasted several times over the last few years and while this most recent bottle was not quite at its peak, it's not so far away that it couldn't be enjoyed now. Note that my scores have ranged between 92 and 93 points.

Rhone Beaucastel 1994 Chateauneuf du Pape

4 Case 12 75cl £540£495
  • The 1994 seems less successful than my early tastings indicated. The high percentage of Mourvedre (40% versus the normal 30%) has given it an earthy, leathery character with hints of mushrooms and tree bark. Although dense and chewy, it remains tannic and firm. It will keep for two decades, but it is not a hedonistic example and how much pleasure it will provide remains to be seen

    Score: 90 Robert Parker, RobertParker.com, January 2003

    Beaucastel Rouge 1994 - It reminds me of a more concentrated 1985, with nearly the character and size of the prodigious 1989 - a sweet, rich, thick, chewy wine with full body, and a superb nose of smoky black fruits, Asian spices, licorice, olives and herbs. Full, concentrated and lush, it should drink well for 15-20 years.

    The medium ruby-colored 2000 Cote Rotie does not possess a great deal of power or richness, but it offers an elegant, superficial yet pleasant, herb-tinged raspberry and cherry character with hints of vanilla and white flowers in the background. Enjoy this delicate Cote Rotie during its first 5-7 years of life. The son of the late Robert Jasmin continues to demonstrate a fine touch with his elegant, finesse-styled Cote Roties, which emerge from three hillside vineyards above the village of Ampuis.

Champagne 1990 Bollinger Grande Annee

[Duty Paid]

1 Bottle 150cl £340£300
  • Gold-tinged color. Deep, maturing aromas of toffee, butterscotch, ginger and molasses. Fat and rich in the mouth, with excellent intensity; in the mature Bollinger style but far more successful than the bottling from the lower-acid 1989 vintage. Thick with extract, and palate-staining on the aftertaste. A main-course Champagne.

Champagne 2006 Pol Roger Cuvee Winston Churchill

2 Case 3 150cl £750£695
  • Like Fred and Ginger, this dances gracefully on the palate, with rich and expressive flavors of peach tart, raspberry sorbet, candied ginger and orange peel, and sleek acidity that leaves a mouthwatering impression on the satiny finish. Drink now through 2031.

    Score: 95 Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, January 2017

    (the varietals are a “proprietary secret” with fruit from old vines in grand cru vineyards). A whiff of petrol can be found on the ripe aromas of baked apple, brioche and soft floral scents. The exceptionally rich yet powerful flavors possess an almost creamy mid-palate mouth feel despite the presence of a firm supporting effervescence that also shapes the sappy and wonderfully complex finale. This is a bold, indeed even robust vintage for this famous cuvée and while it could certainly be enjoyed now, I would suggest holding it for another 5ish years as
    my sense is that even more complexity is almost certain to develop. 93/2021+
