Red Burgundy 2015 Bonnes Mares

Dujac

1 Bottle 75cl £775
  • Tasting note: There is enough reduction present to warrant decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is good freshness to the rich, powerful and overtly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before culminating in a hugely long finish where the only reproach is a subtle warmth. What I like about this wine though is the subtle interplay of structural elements that contribute mightily to the sense of harmony and grace, which is relatively unusual for such a big wine. In short, this is first-rate as well though I would note that my score assumes that the reduction displayed on the nose will not last.

Red Burgundy 2016 Echezeaux

Dujac

1 Bottle 75cl £395
  • (the estate's vines in the lieu-dit Les Champs Traversins lost about 35% of their fruit to the frost): Healthy medium-deep red. Darker on the nose than usual for the Dujac Echézeaux, offering musky scents of black raspberry and licorice. Rich, thick, seamless wine with lovely sweetness and a savory complexity; strong in extract but not particularly clenched in the early going. Finishes with ripe, dusty, chocolatey tannins, a slightly roasted fruit element and excellent length. This will need time in bottle to harmonize.

Red Burgundy 2015 Echezeaux

Dujac

2 Bottle 75cl £425
  • Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of maraschino cherry, dried flowers and red licorice. Silky, juicy and fine-grained, conveying terrific intensity and a light touch to its red fruit, milk chocolate and mint flavors. The tactile, palate-staining finish features noble tannins. I find this more typical and more aromatic than the 2016 version. The yield here was under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jeremy Seysses, but the wine showed a distinctly relaxed quality.

Red Burgundy 2015 Clos Saint-Denis

Dujac

2 Bottle 75cl £575
  • Bright, dark red. Perfumed but reticent aromas of raspberry and rose petal. Very pure but tightly wound, showing more red fruit lift than the Clos de la Roche but less showy today. A darker note of medicinal black cherry contributes to this young wine's serious mien. Less thick than the Clos de la Roche but still very 2015 in character. Finishes very long and floral, with firm but suave tannins. This wine calls for patience but I would not be surprised if it gave pleasure earlier than the Clos de la Roche.

Red Burgundy 2015 Vosne 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts

Dujac

1 Bottle 75cl £275
  • Healthy medium red. Distinctly more minerally on the nose than the Charmes-Chambertin, offering complex scents of black raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, violet and dark chocolate. More open-knit on the palate as well, but at the same time a bit more monolithic than its younger 2016 sibling, conveying a touch of smoky reduction to its very dense, ripe flavors of purple fruits, chocolate and minerals. Still, this very ripe, tactile wine has the stuffing to support its big, broad tannins, which reach the front teeth.

Red Burgundy 2014 Vosne 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts

Dujac

2 Bottle 75cl £185
  • Bright medium red. Complex, terroir-driven scents of raspberry, crushed rock, flint and smoke. Concentrated and fairly full, conveying a hint of superripeness to its flavors of berry fruit, minerals and wild herbs. My first sample displayed good energy but a slight dryness on the back end but my second was sweeter and more vibrant, finishing with firm tannins and excellent saline length. My score is for the better bottle.

Red Burgundy 2015 Vosne 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts

Dujac

2 Bottle 75cl £395
  • The 2015 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru has a gorgeous bouquet whose only fault is that it will be difficult to resist in its youth. Copious red cherry and wild strawberry fruit lace with minerals, superb delineation and focus - this is a Malconsort that oozes confidence. The palate is medium-bodied but there is more density and volume here compared to previous vintages. The stem addition discretely interwoven with the fruit lending a light sous-bois note towards the sustained finish, and a tingle of spice on the aftertaste. Brilliant. Tasted at Flint Wines's Domaine Dujac tasting in London.

Red Burgundy 2012 Bonnes Mares

Mugnier JF

1 Bottle 75cl £575
  • The 2012 Bonnes Mares presents an intriguing push and pull between some of the more delicate notes that appear initially and its underlying, restrained power. This is another wine where so much is implied rather than overt. As always, the Mugnier Bonnes Mares is above all else a wine of restraint, although in this vintage, there is plenty of depth as well.

    235, The Wine Advocate

    I was eager to taste the bottled 2014 Las Beatas, and then I realized I was not only going to taste the 2014 but also the 2015, as it was already bottled. 2014 saw a warm winter with average rain and a dry and warm spring followed by a fresh and dry September with some rain that challenged the end of the ripening period. This is a field blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, Garnacha Blanca and others fermented in 1,000- and 3,000-kilogram oak vats and matured in 1,200-liter oak foudres for 15 months. I see this more in line with the 2012 rather than the 2013, with a little more ripeness within the elegant style of the vineyard. It's spicy, floral and faintly balsamic with very elegant tannins. The consistency of this wine is in the palate, as the nose changes a lot more. 1,488 bottles were filled in May 2016.

Vintage Port 2003 Taylor's

1 Case 6 150cl £430
  • The 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port improved each time I raised it to my nose or mouth. It displays a black color and a salty, graphite-laced nose packed with sweet black fruits that is reminiscent of a stellar vintage of Chateau Latour. With air, notes of molasses, burnt sugar, spices, and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich, as well as thick, this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins, molasses, licorice, black cherries, plums, and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex, seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate, kirsch, red as well as black currants, dark cherries, and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power, depth, and purity, this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership. Projected maturity: 2035-2060. Score: 98+

    228, The Wine Advocate

    The 1986 Chateau Margaux is one of the dark horses of the vintage. It has an exquisite bouquet that is now fully mature, with a mixture of red and black fruit, violets, pastilles and hints of cold stone. It blossoms in the glass, gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a more robust Margaux as you would expect given the vintage, clearly with firm backbone, more straight-laced than the 1985 or 1989. Yet there is wonderful delineation and focus here. If you seek strictness and classicism in a wine, then this is the place to come, plus there is superb mineralité and tension on the ferrous finish. Perhaps a little overlooked in recent years, the 1986 Margaux comes highly recommended for those who love the property. This is a wine finally coming of age. Tasted July 2016.

Red Bordeaux 2009 Margaux

1 Case 3 300cl £6,900
  • A brilliant offering from the Mentzelopoulos family, once again their gifted manager, Paul Pontallier, has produced an uncommonly concentrated, powerful 2009 Chateau Margaux made from 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As with most Medocs, the alcohol here is actually lower (a modest 13.3%) than most of its siblings-. Abundant blueberry, cassis and acacia flower as well as hints of charcoal and forest floor aromas that are almost Burgundian in their complexity are followed by a wine displaying sweet, well-integrated tannins as well as a certain ethereal lightness despite the wine-s overall size. Rich, round, generous and unusually approachable for such a young Margaux, this 2009 should drink well for 30-35+ years. -Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #199, March 201

Champagne 2008 Dom Perignon - Lenny Kravitz Edition

3 Case 6 75cl £790
  • Lenny Kravitz Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 IN ESSENCE

    Dom Pérignon vintages set their own release dates, and Vintage 2008 required more patience than Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009, which was presented earlier – an unprecedented event in Dom Pérignon’s history.

    Further than a collaboration, the partnership with Lenny Kravitz is the shaping of a creative vision. It expresses their respective taste for audacity, the aura of two powers of inspiration united, the resonance of a myth in the process of being written in the most contemporary format.

    The Dom Pérignon bottle itself is a design of untouchable perfection. Lenny Kravitz elevates the iconic label by borrowing from the craft of goldsmiths to work hammered metal on the surface of the shield, creating a patina that lends the metal an inalterable contemporary vibe.

    The artist’s vision creates the atmosphere, the singular quality of the act, seeking no other pretext than the occasion of life itself. The collaboration with Dom Pérignon proposes a new reason to enjoy the bonds forged by a friendship in a pure celebration.

    Issue 244 End of August 2019, The Wine Advocate

    2017 was not an easy act to follow, but the 2018 Aconcagua Costa "Las Pizarras" Chardonnay managed nicely. From a cool year, it has notes of white flowers and nuts and is a little lighter than the 2017, which was more structured. It doesn't have the depth and sharpness of the 2017, but it has very good freshness. It's vertical and mineral and has nice tension, following the path of the 2015 and 2017. This is now matured mostly in 300- and 400-liter oak barrels, and the oak is nicely integrated. Only 50% of the wine went through malolactic. 6,557 bottles and 60 magnums were filled in February 2019.

    Issue 244 End of August 2019, The Wine Advocate

    There is a jump in quality in the 2018 Aconcagua Costa "Las Pizarras" Pinot Noir, from what was a cold year in Aconcagua Costa, slightly drier and slightly cooler than 2016. So, I'm not surprised this cool-climate variety behaved quite well. The wine has great purity and transparency and is very clean and expressive, with good complexity and aromas of blood orange and sour cherries, a note of iron and a touch of cinnamon. They used some full clusters in the fermentation, which seems to have added some grip, and the wine matured mostly in 300- and 500-liter oak barrels. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins, good weight and juicy fruit and comes through as nicely textured, balanced and elegant, but not heavy or ripe. The wine is a lot more elegant, and I think it's the best vintage so far of a wine that can now be the benchmark for the variety in Chile.

    Outstanding
    Note: from .89 ha parcel planted in 1910
    Producer note: The always candid Jean-Marie Fourrier told me that 2009 was a "generous vintage but that doesn't really explain things the way it often does. The reason is that there was a huge percentage of shot berries. I have a sorting screen of only 6 mm and there were plenty of berries that were able to pass through. In some vineyards as much as 50% of the crop was in the form of shot berries. This explains why the '09s seem to be much more concentrated than the yields would otherwise suggest. I began picking on the 17th of September and brought in a very clean crop that ranged in potential alcohols from 12.5 to 13%. The primary fermentation proceeded relatively quickly and the malos were finished early as well, which is to say by April. As to the wines, they are already delicious and deceptively accessible, which means that too many of them are going to be drunk too young. The '09s are going to surprise people in terms of how well they age." I will repeat that Fourrier deliberately bottles with high CO2 levels as a partial defense against oxidation and thus if you elect to try an example or two young, be sure to decant for 20 to 30 minutes first.

    Tasting note: A beautiful panoply of floral and herbal suffused red and blue pinot fruit liberally laced with ample minerality that also defines the textured and ultra pure middle weight flavors that possess excellent precision and verve on the driving and wonderfully long and linear finish.

    Tasted: Nov 18, 2016
    Drink: Try from 2025+
     
    Tasting note: (with thanks to Doug Barzelay). Initially this was heavily reduced and required a full 45 minutes in a vigorously shaken decanter to really dissipate the funk. Like many '05s at this stage in their evolution this remains reserved and tight but the concentration and balance is seriously impressive. That said, the reserved nose, while offering glimpses of what is to come, is still notably closed and the supporting tannins shaping the impressively scaled flavors remain markedly firm. I remain highly optimistic that in time this is going to be a genuinely great Clos St. Jacques but for now it's basically infanticide, and this is true even with extended aeration. I would advise just letting this slumber away for the better part of another decade as it's going to need it but when it finally matures, we're in for a real treat! Tasted twice in the last 3 years with almost identical results.

Champagne 2008 Dom Perignon

2 Case 3 150cl £975
  • BOTTLES & MAGNUMS “….I have no hesitation in claiming that 2008 is the greatest Dom Pérignon vintage ever produced.” Tom Stevenson

     

    The 2008 Dom Pérignon is fabulous, but quite remarkably, it was even more open when I tasted it a year ago. Bright, focused and crystalline in its precision, the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2008 its chiseled, bright profile. Several recent bottles have all been magnificent. What I admire most about the 2008 is the way it shows all the focus, translucence and energy that is such a signature of the year, and yet it is also remarkably deep and vertical. In other words, the 2008 is a Champagne that plays in three dimensions.
