2017 Penfolds, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

"Attractive and pronounced nose, notes of grilled bacon and meat with a leathery gamey note. There’s plenty of freshness and rounded but firm tannins. Excellent cedary oak spice and a linear and polished mouthfeel." 17+ pts., Alistair Cooper MW,

2019 San Polino, Brunello di Montalcino, Helichrysum 6x75cl

“With unimpeded views towards Monte Amiata in Montalcino’s southeast, the Helichrysum vineyards are characterised by arid, stony soil, winds from the Sahara, and significant temperature... differences between day and night. While the 2019 possesses the vintage’s – and this site’s – signature fragrance, it disperses it with measured precision. The subtle progression leads from camomile, liquorice and fennel to cocoa and tobacco. The palate is taut, compact and concentrated yet never heavy. A dark red cherry backdrop is laced with exotic spice, while tactile tannins encircle the core with a terracotta-like cling. Tuck this away for a few years.” 96 pts., Michaela Morris,

2019 San Polino, Brunello di Montalcino 6x75cl

“From San Polino’s holdings in the northeast on loamy clay soil. Exuberantly youthful and becoming, the 2019 rings out with violet and oily balsamic herbs. It gives a midweight impression – yet... is packed with brambly fruit. An orange peel flourish is heightened by zesty acidity. And as this opens, savoury iron depths are revealed. Promising but needs to come together. Solid, clayey tannins clamp down on the finish.” 93 pts., Michaela Morris,

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Cotes du Rhone, La Reserve Rouge 6x75cl

"There was no 2021 made, but the 2022 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve, tasted as a blend drawn from the seven demi-muids (one new), is a terrific wine. A co-fermented blend of 70% Grenache and 30%... Mourvèdre, it delivers lush black cherries, refreshing, complex garrigue notes and just a hint of cedar. Full-bodied and rich, it's plush and velvety in feel, with a lingering finish." 92-94 pts., Joe Czerwinski,

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Les Safres Rouge 6x75cl

"Delectable swirls of strawberries, cherries and red raspberries mark the nose of the 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres, a 90-10 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre from the sandy soils of the les... Bédines lieu-dit. Full-bodied yet silky, this vintage shows even more persistence of flavor on the finish than usual." 94-96 pts., Joe Czerwinski,

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Les Quartz 6x75cl

"The 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a return to the blockbuster style of the 2020, yet it retains a sense of freshness. Hints of menthol and crushed stone on the nose accent black cherries... and blueberries, while the full-bodied palate is plush and expansive without being at all heavy. Lush and long, produced from yields under 20 hectoliters per hectare, it's a stunning blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah." 95-97 pts., Joe Czerwinski,

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, La Reserve 6x75cl

A candidate for perfection, the 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre from sandy parcels in Guigasse and Pignan. Alluring scents of crushed stone, floral... elements and almost truffle-like complexities accent black cherries and plums on the nose, while the wine is full-bodied and expansive in the mouth yet manages to do that without seeming heavy or overly rich, and the silky finish is near-endless, reverberating with notes of dark fruit and licorice." 98-100 pts., Joe Czerwinski,

2022 Famille Perrin, Gigondas, Domaine du Clos des Tourelles 6x75cl

"Beautifully elegant, perfectly ripe and juicy, with incisive acidity. This has great tannic finesse, serious intensity, concentration and structure but is so fresh. A pure, classic example of... Gigondas. Fast becoming one of the landmark wines of the appellation. A proportion of whole bunch is included. Vineyards around the Clos on the southern edge of the village, 4ha parcel." 95 pts., Matt Walls,

2022 Famille Perrin, Gigondas, L’Argnee Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

"Soft, velvety, approachable and powerful. Remarkable acidity, with intense, searching tannins and driving salinity. A deeply vinous wine. The oak is present on the nose and palate for now but it... should integrate. It’s long and juicy. The alcohol feels well balanced, and this should age with real interest. 1ha plot of pre-phylloxera vines near the village of Gigondas. All aged in demi-muids, half new, half one-year-old." 95 pts, Matt Walls,

2019 Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Pinot Noir 6x75cl

“Our 2019 Pinot Noir opens with luscious dark red and black cherry, dried wild herb florals, with a touch of savoury brown spice. As the wine dwells on the palate layers unfurl, revealing silken... texture. Fine textured structure rises gracefully whilst being surrounded by a crunchy tang of acidity and a slight mocha note with some brown spice more vibrant red cherry notes on the long finish.” Matt Dicey, Winemaker

2020 Thibault Liger-Belair, Vieilles Vignes, Moulin-a-Vent 6x75cl

"The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes, from several parcels in the north of the appellation, contains 40% whole cluster and was picked from 27 August. It has quite a precocious bouquet with... raspberry coulis, blueberry and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe red cherry fruit laced with orange peel, just a touch of spice on the finish. Fine."

2022 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

“Bright ruby red and with a lovely ripe and aromatic hedgerow fruit nose, accompanied by a whiff of cassis and vanilla to round things off. Beautifully balance fruit and tannins already, and a... crisp underlying acidity to provide the underpinning for medium term ageing. The cabernet sauvignon in the blend takes you down the Bordeaux route, but there is always a question mark raised by the sangiovese as to where in Italy it sits. No matter - this is the best of both classic varieties expressed through its Tuscan terroir. Really lovely”. Drink 2026 to 2035 Mr Wheeler.

2017 La Rioja Alta, Vina Ardanza Reserva, Rioja 12x75cl

"A more vibrant and fruitier expression of Ardanza this year with strawberries, mussels, warm spices and berries. Round and silky on the palate with lovely spices and a long, nicely saline finish. A nice touch of creaminess works really well here and further extends the finish." 95 pts., James Suckling

2022 Domaine Jacques Carillon, Puligny-Montrachet 6x75cl

Pale yellow, firm bouquet as a little bit of sulphur at this stage. Clean, brisk, medium powerful. Fills out really well on the palate, with a grapey generosity. More spritz in a second sample, a... tiny bit more alcohol, but excellent length. The third is crunchy and spicy. Excellent. Seven plots in all across the village Drink from 2027-2032.

A gently oaked blend of 45% cabernet, 35% merlot, 18% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot from the property’s younger vines in this critically acclaimed, exceptional vintage, it offers immediate... drinking pleasure that is fresh, exuberant and sumptuous – pleasure that is pure Pessac. Pleasure in which the notion of craftsmanship and pedigree that is sensibly priced couldn’t be more deliciously exemplified.

2018 Glenelly, Lady May, Stellenbosch 6x75cl

"Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and the remainder Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Lady May is firm and red-fruited with a broad yet compact frame. Medium to full-bodied, the wine... is generous and juicy on the palate with a robust frame. It is slightly shy in its cocoon phase and should reemerge in about five years and remain a stoic and epic South African red blend for decades to come. This is what you want in your cellar. 2028-2050". 95+ pts., Anthony Mueller,

2015 Chateau d’Armailhac 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

“This wine is definitely softening and taking on shape in the bottle. The juiciness is starting to appear and you can see why this is the most easily approachable of the Mouton stable when young.... Really enjoyable, delicately shaped but with the Pauillac signature of menthol and slate. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend.” 93 pts., Jane Anson,

2022 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Bourgogne, Pinot Noir 6x75cl

Fleshy, with firm tannins, and juicy acidity, the 2022 Bourgogne rouge from Domaine Livera is ambitiously structured showing delicious cherry fruit at its core and succulence on the finish. Like many 2022s it is delicious now but this one needs waiting another 5 to 7 years to really deliver on this early promise. (Mr.Wheeler Wine)

1995 Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

The 1995 and 1996 Las-Cases are both monumental wines and the former does not disappoint here. It has a spellbinding nose of blackberry, cassis, melted tar and sous-bois with so much vibrancy and... vivacity. The palate is full-bodied with succulent, rounded tannins, enormous depth and power. The finish is beautifully poised and minerally, much more feminine than the ’96. This is a Las-Cases with guile and grace, but it deserves at least 2 hours decanting to open up. Tasted February 2011. 96 pts., Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

2018 Castellare di Castellina, Sodi San Niccolo, IGT 6x75cl

"Lovely abundance and expression on the nose, you get that perfect clarity of fruit - black fruits and blackcurrant laced with violets. Strong, round and rich - this is densely concentrated with... power and punch. Gorgeous texture - dry with firm firm tannins and a direct fruit profile - tension and linearity yet there's plushness and ripeness here too. It's round yet direct but also sweet and succulent. I love that immediately juicy perfumed hit you get on the tongue, such brightness and energy here, the sweet red cherry edge is so delicious. Supremely charming but also fun, such playfulness going on with the flavours and the textures." 96 pts., Georgina Hindle,
