Alter Ego de Palmer 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (AG) (92-94)

Palmer's 2021 Alter Ego is fabulous. Dense and rich in the glass, with positively explosive energy, the 2021 dazzles from start to finish. A rush of dark cherry, plum, spice, blood orange, menthol and licorice infuses the palate with tremendous intensity. Hints of rose petal and pomegranate appear later to round things out. The 2021 possesses tremendous textural richness that is evident from the very first taste. The aromatics alone are especially present today.

Carruades de Lafite 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (AG) (91-93)

The 2021 Carruades de Lafite is a dark, brooding wine. Dense and plush, with quite a bit of tannin presence, Carruades is quite distinctive in 2021. Blue/purplish fruit and floral notes show tremendous primary intensity. Bright acids on the finish add an attractive sense of freshness that is quite appealing. The 2021 is a serious Carruades.

Langoa Barton 2021 (6x75cl)

The Drinks Business (93-95)

Langoa-Barton (St Julien; 61% Cabernet Sauvignon; 36% Merlot; 3% Cabernet Franc; 13% alcohol; tasted at the UGCB press tasting and at Lagrange with very similar notes). Another wine that is very true to its own style here. Nutty, with a pleasing ripe natural sweetness to the fruit; a little hint of the oak and a trace (but only that) of vanilla and of grated dark chocolate, almonds and frangipane, alongside the dark plump black cherry and bramble fruit – mulberries too. There is good depth and density to the fruit, which is very pure, though I find the mid-palate a little less defined and precise than with the leading handful of wines of the appellation. My second tasting suggests that’s just a little harsh (and I revise my score up a notch). A great mouthful – with sapid gobbets of fresh fruit. Full and rich, bright and tense. Promising in the context of any vintage and very fine indeed in the context of this one.

Vinous (AG) (93-95)

The 2021 Laroque is a standout. Bright and racy, with tremendous persistence, Laroque stakes its claim as Saint-Émilion's brightest rising star. Bright limestone accents run through a core of red/purplish fruit, rose petal, mint and white pepper. There is a linear intensity to Laroque that is hugely appealing. Technical Director David Suire fashioned a gem. Don't miss it.

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!

Nenin 2021 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93-94+)

I was immensely impressed by the quality of the 2021 Nenin, a wine that's the fruit of an immensely strict selection—and several consecutive nights of frost protection. Offering up aromas of sweet plums, wild berries, raw cocoa, black truffles and nicely integrated new oak, it's a medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety wine with lively acids, melting tannins and a layered, concentrated profile with a long, penetrating finish. Tasted twice.

Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux (93)

This has punch and mouth-watering juicy acidities. Cheerful, enticiting, blackberry and loganberry fruits, and all is in place to add on further depth over ageing. There is rusticity that speaks of the vintage, but it is charming and this is easy to recommend. Another great vintage at Ormes de Pez, one of the value wines of the year. 45% new oak.

Palmer 2021 (3x150cl)

The Drinks Business (95-97+)

Palmer (Margaux; 56% Merlot, 41%Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot; aging in oak barrels, 70% of which are new; a final yield of just 22hl/ha; 13.5% alcohol; tasted at the property). A very exciting wine and a rare exception to the left-bank rule in this vintage that the more Merlot in the blend the more difficult the wine is. For what makes this great is the Merlot. As with Alter Ego, this starts promisingly with a pleasing natural ripe sweetness on the nose that is reflected on the plate. The intensity of the dense yet vibrant fruit is fabulously impressive. Wow! A kaleidoscope of colour. Black, purple and lots of vivid red berry fruit – raspberry and loganberry purée – plump mulberries and brambles too. This has impressive volume for the vintage and quite a bold structure. Yet the frame is amply and in fact densely covered and there is no dip in the fruit intensity. There is also a lovely salinity and creaminess to the mid-palate. But what is perhaps most exciting about this wine is the way in which the sapidity and the salinity work together. For they seem to combine to produce little vertical fireworks of vibrant fruitiness, discharging biodynamic explosions of fresh juiciness at the top of the palate. Spectacular and refreshing in equal measure!

Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Grunlack Spatlese 2021 (6x75cl)

An emblem of this pioneering and historic winery, the first-ever Spätlese Riesling created and added to the portfolio in 1775, Riesling Grunlack Spätlese is always the most collectable cuvée in the range. Grunlack Spätlese is a classic medium-sweet wine, and it is always a top scorer. With its previous vintage awarded a magnificent 99pts from Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate), one can rest assured that 2021 will be another splendid year from the “finest Rheingau Riesling producers”.

Spot-on balance of ripeness and freshness at the long, wet-stone finish. A cuvée of pinot bianco, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc with a history going back to 1893. Drink or hold.

Palmer (Margaux; 56% Merlot, 41%Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot; aging in oak barrels, 70% of which are new; a final yield of just 22hl/ha; 13.5% alcohol; tasted at the property). A very exciting wine and a rare exception to the left-bank rule in this vintage that the more Merlot in the blend the more difficult the wine is. For what makes this great is the Merlot. As with Alter Ego, this starts promisingly with a pleasing natural ripe sweetness on the nose that is reflected on the plate. The intensity of the dense yet vibrant fruit is fabulously impressive. Wow! A kaleidoscope of colour. Black, purple and lots of vivid red berry fruit – raspberry and loganberry purée – plump mulberries and brambles too. This has impressive volume for the vintage and quite a bold structure. Yet the frame is amply and in fact densely covered and there is no dip in the fruit intensity. There is also a lovely salinity and creaminess to the mid-palate. But what is perhaps most exciting about this wine is the way in which the sapidity and the salinity work together. For they seem to combine to produce little vertical fireworks of vibrant fruitiness, discharging biodynamic explosions of fresh juiciness at the top of the palate. Spectacular and refreshing in equal measure!

Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Grunlack Spatlese 2021 (6x75cl)

An emblem of this pioneering and historic winery, the first-ever Spätlese Riesling created and added to the portfolio in 1775, Riesling Grunlack Spätlese is always the most collectable cuvée in the range. Grunlack Spätlese is a classic medium-sweet wine, and it is always a top scorer. With its previous vintage awarded a magnificent 99pts from Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate), one can rest assured that 2021 will be another splendid year from the “finest Rheingau Riesling producers”.

James Suckling (93)

Full, yet subtle nose of crisp pear and candied lemon with delicate herbal notes and a whiff of flint. Impressive substance and textural complexity on the simultaneously generous and precise palate. Spot-on balance of ripeness and freshness at the long, wet-stone finish. A cuvée of pinot bianco, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc with a history going back to 1893. Drink or hold.
