Leoville Barton 2020 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (96-97)

A full-bodied red that builds on the palate with lots of blackberry and blueberry character, as well as chocolate. Mineral and graphite undertones. Chewy, yet very integrated. Excellent, as expected.

Leoville Las Cases 2021 (6x75cl)

The Drinks Business (96-98)

Léoville Las Cases. (St Julien; 80% Cabernet Sauvignon; 15% Cabernet Franc; 5% Merlot.; 13.2% alcohol; pH 3.71; IPT 77; tasted at the property). If you’ve ever wanted to know what Las Cases’ Cabernet would taste like without (most of) the Merlot, here’s your chance (and you can play the same game with most of the first growths too). The answer, in a word, is wonderful (and please don’t take that as a criticism of Las Cases’ Merlot in any other vintage). This is serene and profoundly beautiful on the nose. Cool, precise, elegant, suave and sophisticated, with an intense and gracious dark purple and black fruit. It is the very epitome of cool-summer Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) – and that, in a sense is the point. We have, too, the florality of the vintage – here violets and a more discrete sensation of spring flowers. With air on the nose – and, again, on the palate (especially when one draws in a little air) – there is an utterly divine intense presence of cedar that both envelops and somehow cosets the dark fruit. As beautiful a Las Cases as I have had the pleasure to taste en primeur and, for me, the wine of the appellation in the vintage. Like Margaux and, in a slightly different way, Lafite, it embraces and works with rather than struggles against the characteristics of the vintage. Tranquillity, cool perfection and supreme elegance. I find this quite an emotional La Cases. Stylistically, my favourite ever!

Montrose 2016 (6x75cl)

Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux (100)

Right from the first nose, you start salivating in anticipation. Has the exact right amount of sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, the tug of tannins that are confident and perfectly placed, ready to soften soon, but not quite yet. Velvet texture, with turmeric, black chocolate and violet notes, crushed mint on the finish. You know is going to last decades, and is a bottle that falls bang into that rare category of age-defying wines. The definition and the structure of this is right at the top of what Montrose can deliver. Harvest September 23 to October 14.
