1978 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Pessac

750ml | SKU 4701 | Available
97 VM

There was one younger wine. The 1978 La Mission Haut-Brion is one of the best wines of that decade and did not disappoint. Still youthful and dark in hue, it has that wonderful bouquet of blackberries, gravel and black olive, here displaying a heightened ...

750ml | SKU 46565 | Available
99+ WA

Proprietor Denis Durantou has produced a blockbuster Pomerol from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, tipping the scales at just over 14.5% natural alcohol. A riveting wine, pure, elegant, but at the same time, extremely powerful and concentrate...


1990 Chateau Leoville Barton - St. Julien

750ml | SKU 9315 | 11 Available
93+ WA

Believe it or not, the 1990 Leoville Barton can actually be drunk - something that cannot be said about the broodingly backward, still excruciatingly tannic 1982. The exceptionally concentrated 1990 reveals more polished, sweeter tannins along with a big,...


1983 Chateau Margaux - Margaux

750ml | SKU 25 | Available
96 WA

As I have noted consistently, this can be a breathtaking wine, but having tasted it close to a dozen times since the last edition of this book, over half the bottles were marred by tainted corks. In fact, one would almost wonder if there was TCA problem i...


2008 Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac

750ml | SKU 43984 | Available
95 WA

Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2008 Mouton Rothschild has always been in the shadow of the ensuing couple of vintages, but I was not the only person at this tasting that commented upon the class in show here. It replicated previou...

750ml | SKU 7051 | 30 Available
96 VM

The second part of this tasting kicks off with the 1989 Pichon Lalande. Off the charts aromatic intensity, silky tannins and exceptional finesse give the 1989 much of its considerable allure. Crushed flowers, sweet red fruit, tobacco, cedar and incense ar...

3L | SKU 84481 | Available
98 WA

Of these new Baroli from Conterno Fantino, the 2016 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Sori Ginestra shows the most underlying power, linearity and determination. While the other wines are a little softer and richer, especially on the mid-palate, this wine is all musc...


2016 Guigal - Cote Rotie La Landonne

750ml | SKU 82380 | 18 Available
(95-98) WA

The 2016 Cote Rotie La Landonne is showing a bit more grip than last time I tasted it, with hints of green coffee bean on the nose alongside ripe black cherries and a heap of dried spices. Medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration and plenty of tann...


2016 Guigal - Cote Rotie La Mouline

750ml | SKU 82381 | 12 Available
(95-98) WA

Picked later than the 2015, the 2016 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows more dark fruit in its profile?think cassis and black olives?plus licorice and peppery spice. It's full-bodied, rich and supple, with a long finish. It may be nearly as good as the 2015, yet...

Inky magenta. Candied cherry, blackcurrant, exotic spices, violet oil and a hint of olive on the powerfully scented nose. Velvety, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering palate-staining, mineral-laced black/blue fruit preserve, floral pastille, smoky bac...
