Smith Haut Lafitte 2019 (6x75cl)

Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux (99)

Sumptuous, seductive and extremely poised. This inches forward with layers of bitter chocolate, smoked caramel, liquorice root, fresh mint leaf, rosebud and black truffle. Behind all this sits caressing, slate-filled tannins that give real grip to the palate. Within 15 minutes of opening you feel even more volume in the mid palate, before things close in towards a mouthwatering salinity on the finish. Shows why Le Petit Smith Haut-Lafitte is so exceptional in this vintage. Full of signature Smith Haut Lafitte gloss, but this is also a serious wine that will reward ageing. 60% new oak.

Standish Schubert Theorem Shiraz 2020 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

The 2020 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz was made with fruit from the Roennfeldt Road vineyard in Marananga, with 70% whole bunches in the ferment. This is the only cuvée in the collection that sees any inclusion of a different maturation vessel: the northeastern corner of the vineyard goes into concrete, because it retains the pure blue fruit characters that so define the wine. When one considers the dirt that is in this vineyard (and I ask you, without dirt, just where would we all be?), when one sees its black, shaley sparkle, one can get a sense of what to expect in the wine. It is always the black, brooding beast of the pack, but there is always—and I repeat, ALWAYS—a core of very pure fruit at its heart. This year is no different, and it is encased in fine but structuring tannin. It soars long across the palate, and yet within it, this wine is elegant and pliable. If the Lamella is the intriguing, pretty wine, and The Standish is the savory powerhouse, then The Relic is the iron fist–velvet glove... which makes this the enigma. I cannot overstate how attracted I am to the prowling, slinking nature of it. The tannins here—of all the wines—have a blueberry skin gravel to them; they are chalky and fine and a little bit gritty… excellent. This is a sensation, in every respect. A hot contender for best wine in the release this year.

Standish Single Vineyard Shiraz The Standish 2020 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2020 The Standish Shiraz was made with fruit from the Laycock family vineyard, in Greenock. The first vintage was 1999. This vintage saw 30% whole bunches in the ferment. It offers notes of red dirt, a bit of blood, salted heirloom tomato and satsuma plum. This is concentrated, compacted, plush, dense and muscular, with notes of ras el’hanout, allspice, torched cinnamon and salted Dutch licorice. This wine is like playing "Magic Eye." There’s a lot going on, but if you relax, a pattern emerges and the detail becomes obvious for all to see. Within the fine but plushly tannic frame, there is saltbush and bay leaf, exotic spice and cascading layers of berry fruits. The dirt in which the roots are entangled similarly shows its colors—and these are red, ochre, earth and dust. At first glance, the foolish and the rash will overlook this for being singularly muscular and full-bodied, but like all the best IYKYK (if you know, you know—wink wink) scenarios, there is far more than meets the palate here. Another blockbuster Standish.

Standish The Relic Shiraz-Viognier 2020 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (99)

The 2020 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier is made with fruit from the Hongell family vineyard in Krondorf, with 15% to 20% whole bunches in the ferment and 1% Viognier skins co-fermented. This is the best I’ve seen it. There’s something about the combination of the hot year and the diminished yields—it has recoiled and recompressed the Viognier on top of and into the Shiraz and brought them into balance/harmony. Beneath its floral and stone fruit guiles is a pool of savory, muscular, red-dirt Shiraz. There is bacon fat and pure berry fruit and spice for days… I’ve recently looked at a previous vintage of this wine alongside an older but immaculate Chateau d’Ampuis, and while their origins were clear in the glass, the Relic proved an Australian perspective more than relevant. The balance between the varieties—and the classic push/pull of sweet and savory—is more harmonious this year than in any I can remember, and the only thing I am more excited about when I consider this wine is what I will say next year, through the lens of an excellent, cool and elegant year. What a fine pair they will make.

Suertes del Marques Las Suertes 2020 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96+)

The second vintage of the single-vineyard Listán Negro from El Ciruelo is under its new commercial name, the 2020 Las Suertes. From a centenary cordón trenzado vineyard, this fermented with 90% full clusters in concrete without temperature control and indigenous yeasts and macerated for 21 days. It matured in used 500-liter oak barrels for 11 months. It's slightly lower in alcohol (at 12.5%) than the 2019, with a pH of 3.52 and 5.64 grams of acidity. It's a tad fresher. There is great finesse here, as well as complexity and depth and incredible texture from super elegant tannins. It has finesse but structure and bones. It can be drunk, but it should be able to develop in bottle. This is the finest Listán Negro here. And one of the finest, if not THE finest Ciruelo (Las Suertes) so far... 4,100 bottles were filled in December 2021.

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2008 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (100)

The perfect blanc de blancs. Full-bodied with a lovely framework of acidity and dry fruit, such as apples, pears and peaches. Opulent. Dense and muscular. Yet, it’s balanced and harmonious. Line of acidity at the end. Totally in tune. Superb. Deep and complete. Has everything. One for the cellar. It is the greatest Comte ever. It has everything. A perfect upgrade from two years ago. Drink or hold.

Vincent Paris Saint-Joseph Les Cotes 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (91-93)

Vibrant blackberry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, pungent flowers and smoked meat. Juicy black/blue fruit and allspice flavors show very good energy and become weightier with air while maintaining focus. Fine-grained tannins add framework to the spice- and floral-driven finish, which leaves a building mineral note behind.

Vinedos de Sonsierra El Manao 2017 (4x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (95)

Located close to the River Ebro at 410 metres, El Manao is a 0.24-hectare parcel that was planted in 1927. The soils should be alluvial, but are actually clay and limestone. Aged in new French oak, this is a fresh, focused, beautifully balanced wine with that poise that seems to come naturally to the best old-vine sites. Long and profound.

Tim Atkin MW (96)

These proud, beautifully tended bush vines are farmed by José Luis Morete, even in semi- retirement. Located on sand and limestone at 490 metres, the 0.69-hectare plot is called Gallocanta and has produced a stunning, world-class Tempranillo: dense, scented, focused and chalky, with super-fine, velvety tannins, layers of dark bramble and blackberry fruit and incredible palate length.
