With pure fruit and well-judged acidity, this 2022 is sensual with a persistent and lightly spiced finish. Superb.” 94-96 pts., Neal Martin, vinous

2022 Chateau La Lagune 3eme Cru Classe, Haut-Medoc 6x75cl

“Reminding me, like the 2019, of a modern-day version of the lovely 1990, the 2022 La Lagune bursts with aromas of dark berries, cassis, licorice and violets. Medium to full-bodied, supple and... fleshy, it's a broad, sensual wine with velvety tannins and a suave, charming profile. With 13.8% alcohol, it remains classically proportioned, with a rather high pH of over 3.8 likely contributing to its open, giving style this year.” 93-95, William Kelley,

This has plenty of fruit on the nose: small red cherries, redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit, a touch of... cedar in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful definition and mineralité, dark fruit, hints of block tea and spices, really harmonious and sappy on the finish. Possibly the best Les Cruzelles that I hove tasted at this stage and sure to be an unbeatable value-for-money.” 92-94 pts. Neal Martin,

This has a perfumed and floral bouquet, with iris and peony infusing the black and red fruit and a light marine... influence in the background.

2022 Chateau Chantalouette, Pomerol 12x75cl

"The commune of Pomerol is consistently brilliant in 2022, and Chantalouette is a superb example, and all the tastier for its sensible price. Beautifully aromatic with ripe black cherries and winter... spice, there is a red fruit lift bringing freshness to the rounded, softly textured dark fruit core. Impressive for its explosive quality, seldom seen at this level, Chantalouette punches well above its weight." (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2022 Chateau Potensac, Medoc 6x75cl

"Fragranced, black bramble fruit, so scented and aromatic. Crystalline pure fruit, blackcurrants, cherries and plums, with grippy, but super fine and fresh tannins and balanced acidity. You get the... structure - wide, firm, so refined in terms of tannic impression, they're at the fore but so discerning and integrated, really supportive and help to focus the wine from start to finish.

2022 Chateau Ormes de Pez, Saint-Estephe 6x75cl

"The 2022 Ormes de Pez is matured in 45% new oak for a planned 16 months. It has a perfumed and floral bouquet, quite sensual for a Saint-Estèphe, developing blue fruit with time in the glass. The... oak is neatly enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a high-toned and racy opening. Good acidity, the Merlot (51%) occupies the driving seat and ensures its silky-textured finish, a mote of chalk dust on the aftertaste. Just needs its élevage to knit it all together." 92-94, Neal Martin,

2022 Chateau Cissac, Haut-Medoc 12x75cl

“This Haut-Médoc stalwart continues its subtle stylistic evolution towards more charm and finesse with the 2022 Cissac, a strong effort evocative of graphite, tobacco, smoke, cassis and violets... mingled with well-integrated hints of oak. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and layered, it's classy and vibrant, concluding with a slightly austere finish. This long-lived red is a blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 5.5% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec.” Yohan Castaing,

2022 Connetable Talbot, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

"Rich and concentrated fruit, dark blackcurrants, bramble fruit, juicy with a tiny hint of sweetness but quite light and aerial in terms of fleshiness, tannins are super fine and sleek giving this a... taught frame and sense of slick direction. Actually feels really classy and classic, not massively layered but delivers a really enjoyable glass. Excellent. Harvest 9-28 September. Yield of 40hl/ha. 3.81pH." 90 pts, Georgina Hindle,

2022 Chateau Duhart-Milon 4eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 3x75cl

"The 2022 Duhart-Milon underwent a short 15- to 18-day maceration and is raised in 50% new oak and the rest one-year-old barrels. It has a very graphite/mint-scented nose that is Pauillac through and... through. The palate is fresh and vibrant with fine tannins. This is beautifully sculpted with a vibrant pencil lead-tinged finish reminiscent of Grand Puy Lacoste. The 2022 is a fabulous Duhart-Milon that should give 30 to 40 years of drinking pleasure. It's a Pauillac a bit like the late Steven Spurrier insofar that it's a Pauillac always conservatively dressed in a pin-striped suit, but that's the essence of Duhart. 2030-2060" 93-95 pts, Neal Martin,

"Dense fruits, violet reflections, with a hit of iris, peony and roses.

2022 Chateau Talbot 4eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

“A great effort in 2022 with such excellent precision and detail to the tannins and fruit.

2022 Chateau Montlandrie, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

“The 2022 Montlandrie was picked 8-23 September and matured in 50% new oak. The Cabernet components in the blend defined the nose that leans toward the Left Bank - graphite and tobacco filtering... through the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture, white pepper and clove, quite structured for this Castillon Cote de Bordeaux with a similar sapid finish as the Les Cruzelles.” Neal Martin,

2022 Saintayme, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

“The 2022 Saintayme is bright, floral and vibrant in this vintage, almost surprisingly so. Crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, chalk, mint and white pepper all run through this taut, nervy Saint-Emilion. All the elements are so well balanced. I especially admire the wine's persistence and inner perfume. Terrific.” Antonio Galloni,

2022 Chateau Senejac, Haut-Medoc 12x75cl

2022 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

"The 2022 Grand Puy Lacoste was picked from 7 to 23 September and contains more Merlot due to the high quality of the fruit, matured in 75% new oak. There is 14.2% alcohol. Therefore, this lends this... GPL a little more precocity and sensuality compared to other vintages, not cut from the some "classical" cloth as, say, the 2019 or 2020. Underlying this velvety veneer are enticing traits of freshly-rolled tobacco and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with finely-sculpted tannins. Silky smooth in texture, so much so that it belies that backbone underneath. There is a peacock's tail of mineral-rich, quite peppery black fruit on the finish, completing a Pauillac endowed with huge potential." 96-98 pts., Neal Martin,

2022 Chateau Marsau, Francs-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

"Lovely dark fruity fragrance with perfumed floral aromas on the nose, smells expressive and open. Smooth and supple, a lovely combination of tension, mouthwatering acidity and fruitiness here, such... sleek texture with definition and soft juiciness. The tannins have grip and purpose with a softly fleshy and mineral sensation - liquorice, wet stone and graphite - giving a wide and interesting expansion on the palate. Feels cool and controlled, serious and focussed, with balance, still with concentration and power and grip. Feels very classy on the palate." 94 pts., Georgina Hindle,

2022 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

"The 2022 Tour Saint Christophe, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, is deep garnet-purple in color. It bounds out of the glass with exuberant notions of baked blueberries, juicy black plums, and... boysenberry preserves, followed by suggestions of star anise, crushed rocks, and cardamom. The concentrated, full-bodied palate is jam packed with black and blue fruit preserves, framed by velvety tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and spicy." 93-95, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW,

2022 Chateau Laroque Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

""Clearly one of the new superstars in the appellation, Château Laroque is located on the cooler, eastern edge of Saint-Emilion and consists of pure, classic upper plateau limestone soils. The... estate covers a whopping 54 hectares, which gives director Davie Suire ample flexibility when putting together the Grand Vin. Looking at the 2022 Laroque, it's a blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc from healthy yields of 41 hectoliters per hectare, representing just 45% of the total production, and it will spend 16-18 months in 50% new French oak. This deep purple-hued beauty offers a classic Saint-Emilion bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco, and a liquid rock-like sense of minerality. It’s medium to full-bodied, has incredible purity, and ultra-fine tannins. It’s unquestionably another beautiful vintage for this chateau that readers will love". 95-97 pts., Jeb Dunnuck

2022 Chateau Chasse-Spleen, Moulis en Medoc 6x75cl

"Beautifully poised and well delivered black fruits here, and this is excellent quality, unusual spices of sweet cinnamon, vanilla bean, turmeric, gourmet edging, with depth and tannic grip. Great... stuff, flashes of heat, but a ton of personality, and serious architecture that promises to age well. 40% new oak barrels for ageing. Now contains part of the vines from newly-purchased Château Brillette, with good quality Cabernet Sauvignon from gravel terroir, in place as of this 2022 blend vintage." 93 pts, Jane Anson,
