2021 Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux 6x75cl

VM92-94
"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.” 92-94 pts, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2021 Chateau Pontet-Canet 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM93-95
“The 2021 is the most classically Pauillac Pontet-Canet I have tasted in modern times. Medium in body, with striking aromatic presence, the 2021 screams with character. Grilled herbs, incense,... leather, lavender and plum open with a bit of coaxing, all framed by beams of tannin and bright, salivating acids that give the wine shape and real sense of direction. There's a bit more Petit Verdot in this year's blend, and that comes through in the wine's intensely savory profile. Aging is 50% in new wood, 35% in amphora and 15% in one year-old barrels. The 2021 was impressive all three times I tasted it” 93-95, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2021 Chateau Langoa Barton 3eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

RP92-94
"A dark, brooding nose, full of bramble fruits and cherry chocolate drops. Tannins are to the fore; they coat the mouth giving a chewy, supple texture lifting the bright strawberry, bitter raspberry... and juicy red cherry fruits and giving this an air of knitted tension - all delivered in one straight line. I like the focus, it doesn't waver from start to finish and is intense the whole way also with sweet cedar, clove and cinnamon edges to the finish which gives nuances and depth. Good effort." 93 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2021 Chateau Mauvesin Barton, Moulis en Medoc 12x75cl

VM89-91
"...It has a vibrant nose with black cherries, bilberry and perhaps more floral scents than I have encountered apropos previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, not a deep or powerful Moulis, yet well-balanced and surfeit with freshness, a pleasant bitter swerve on the finish." 89-91 pts., Neal Martin, vinous

2021 Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

JR17
"A terrific success, the 2021 Léoville Barton unwinds in the glass with aromas of blackcurrant, wild berries and plums mingled with hints of pencil shavings, loamy soil and cigar wrapper. Medium to... full-bodied, deep and seamless, it's concentrated and tensile, with beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and all the class that an elevated percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon growing in deep gravel can provide. It's the first vintage vinified in the Barton family's new winery, and I suspect that contributes to the ultra-refined quality of tannin this year. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times." 93-95 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2021 Lions de Suduiraut Sec 6x75cl

JR19
"52% Sémillon, 48% Sauvignon Blanc. Previously Le Blanc Sec de Suduiraut, now Lions from this vintage. Round, supple and broad across the palate thanks to all the Sémillon but with freshness as well. Citrus aromatics. Stays a bit on the finish. Satisfying." 16 pts., James Lawther MW, jancisrobinson.com

2021 Chateau Beaumont, Haut-Medoc 6x75cl

“Pretty, expressive, with a juicy core of cassis and blueberry, hints of cedar and tobacco leaf. A fresh, juicy and creamy texture and plenty of energy, with its long finish and fine-grained, lightly firm structure. Very fine indeed, and a bargain to boot”. Mr Wheeler tasting note

2021 Chateau Angludet, Margaux 6x75cl

VM88-90
“Mid crimson. Rather alluring ripe nose. Very soft and round. Not a long-distance runner but a true Margaux-style wine for early drinking. There’s even a hint of an ethereal quality about this.” Drink 2025-2034. 16 pts., jancisrobinson.com

2021 Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

RP90-92
“Deep ruby red and simply oozing with spicy toast and forest berries. From a blend in this vintage of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 2% each of petit verdot and cabernet franc, skilful... work in the vineyard enabled all the varietals to be harvested at optimum ripeness, and the judicious use of new oak has given a superbly balanced savoury texture to the wine – this really is a very classy Pauillac. It is outstanding now and is destined to provide great enjoyment from the middle of this decade until late in the next." Mr.Wheeler Tasting Note
