2015 Bollinger PNVZ 6x75cl

RP93
"Offering up aromas of green pear, honeycomb, rye toast, candied peel and buttery pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, vinous and enveloping, with a creamy attack, fine depth at the core and ripe but... racy acids, complemented by a pinpoint mousse. This is a charming, gourmand and elegantly balanced Blanc de Noirs that represents a fine addition to the Bollinger portfolio." 93 pts., William Kelley, robertpartker.com

2019 Penfolds, Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia 6x75cl

DE98
"Cabernet Sauvignon has provided a high point in Penfolds tastings through recent years, and this beauty seduces from the first whiff. Showing note-perfect varietal aromas, with a breeze of ripe... purple fruit over fresh, leafy herbs and rich red earth, the perfume is full and persistent. The entry is sharp and arresting, with fruit purity on point and channelled down the right corridors by supple tannins and a clean acid seam. It shows exemplary balance through to the long finish." 98 pts., David Sly, decanter.com

2019 Yann Chave, Crozes-Hermitage, Rouvre 12x75cl

RP93
"Blackberries, plums and a touch of oak appear on the nose of the 2019 Crozes Hermitage le Rouvre. Full-bodied and concentrated, it's richly tannic yet fully ripe, with layers of rich, velvety tannins unfolding through the long, licorice-tinged finish." 93 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

2019 Cloudy Bay, Pinot Noir, Marlborough 6x75cl

"A ripe, aromatic and satisfying style. Full and mouth-filling, it glides along the palate and slips down easier than a cartoon character on a banana skin. There are no edges to this wine - it's all... roundness and perfect for guzzling now. Flavor-wise, cherry fruit and damson skin meet vanilla pod. Is it a challenging, academic style that will titillate wine snobs? No. Can you drink a shed-load of it and feel content? Yes. " Rebecca Gibb, vinous.com

2020 Domaine Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Blanc 6x75cl

DE94
"A much broader, riper aromatic profile than its Clos la Roquète. White flowers, citrus oils, rich and ripe pear. Full-bodied, broad and unctuous, it's precise both aromatically and in texture; a... perfectly balanced Vieux Télégraphe blanc for early drinking - longevity is hard to predict at this stage. All from La Crau. Mostly aged in foudres and demi-muids, plus a few barriques, two of which were new this year." 94 pts., Matt Walls, www.decanter.com

2020 Domaine Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge 6x75cl

DE96
65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault and others. Cask sample. Spicy, rather funky character on the nose. Sweet fruit but there is a hint of astringency here which takes away from... the whole. Acidity quite forward. Berry fruit on the palate. Firm tannins, less immediately appealing than many a 2020 Châteauneuf. 15.5+ pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

2009 Enzo Boglietti, Barolo, Case Nere 6x75cl

VM90
"Good deep red. Very ripe, high-toned aromas of mocha, coffee and cocoa powder; slightly porty. Then sweet, very ripe and rather easygoing in the mouth, with a wild musky quality enlivened by notes of herbs, clove and pine needles. Fairly oaky Barolo but sweet and pliant, even silky." 90 pts., Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com

2019 Domaine Anne Herve Sigaut, Chambolle-Musigny, Les Bussieres Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

DE91
"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières Vieilles Vignes is Sigaut's finest communal-level bottling this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of plums and raspberries mingled with hints of... cinnamon and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with an ample core of succulent fruit and powdery structuring tannins, it's seamless and complete." 91 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2018 Chateau Meyney, Saint-Estephe 6x75cl

VM93
"The 2018 Meyney is every bit as impressive as it was en primeur. Technical Director Anne Le Naour has done a terrific job in reining in some of the excess weight and power of previous vintages, but... without sacrificing richness. Classy and layered, Meyney boasts fabulous depth and tons of character. Ripe red/purplish fruit, spice, blood orange, smoke and incense are some of the many aromas and flavors that mesh together. The 2018 offers striking immediacy, but also has enough structure to develop well in bottle for 15-20 years, maybe more. The 2018 Meyney is a wine of immense pleasure. Best of all, it is a tremendous value." 93 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2018 Chateau Duhart-Milon 4eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM94
"Just as it was from barrel, the 2018 Duhart-Milon is a real powerhouse. Black cherry, gravel, spice, espresso and savory herbs infuse the 2018 with notable depth and power. A brooding, virile wine,... the Duhart-Milon packs a serious punch. I would give it a few years to soften. The 2018 has really come together since en primeur. In fact, the bottled wine bears little semblance to the en primeur sample, which is a very good thing. There is real density and weight here, with all of the natural richness of the year." 94 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
