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

RP92-94
"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, robertparker.com

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

RP94-96
"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, robertparker.com

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

RP95-97
"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, robertparker.com

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

RP98-100
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, robertparker.com

2021 Boekenhoutskloof, Syrah, Franschhoek 6x75cl

VM93+
“The 2021 Syrah was picked later than the 2020. It contains more whole bunches than prior vintages (65%) and matured for 18 months, 90% in Stockinger foudre and Stockinger demi-muids. This is quite... concentrated on the nose with dark berry fruit, bay leaf and white pepper, perhaps less floral than some of its peers. The aromatics feel tightly coiled at the moment. The palate is smooth and harmonious on the entry, with a fine structure. It is compact at the moment with cracked black and white pepper and garrigues notes flourishing toward the persistent finish. Much more backward than expected, I would cellar this for three to five years before cracking open as it's a serious Syrah.” 93+ pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2021 Boekenhoutskloof, Cabernet Sauvignon, Franschhoek 6x75cl

“The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Franschhoek, blended with 12% Cabernet Franc, is naturally fermented and aged over 22 months, 95% in French barriques. It has a more fruit-forward bouquet than its... Stellenbosch counterpart: brambly red fruit, blood orange, hints of marmalade and tobacco. Quite exuberant with touches of menthol developing. The medium-bodied palate has succulent tannins, juicy and generous with black pepper-infused black fruit. Oddly, this is quite Syrah-like in style, a 'fun' Cabernet, leaving the seriousness to the Stellenbosch Cabernet.” Neal Martin, vinous.com

2019 Chateau Angludet, Margaux 6x75cl

DE91RP91VM91
"The 2019 d’Angludet is the first vintage with partial aging in clay amphora (30%); around 35% of the barrels were new. I must confess that I like the aromatics here: macerated red cherries,... crushed strawberry and raspberry fruit, a little earthiness and a hint of leather. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, and clean, fresh fruit that merges into more tertiary, slightly peppery notes toward the finish. Fine." 91 pts., Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

2021 Domaine Jacques Carillon, Puligny-Montrachet 12x75cl

"Mid-pale lemon. Very classic, fresh but ripe apple and lemon. Medium-bodied with tangy, brisk acidity. Touch of leesiness, and spice and vanilla from the oak. Fresh and vigourous. Moderate volume and length." 16 pts., Matthew Hayes, jancisrobinson.com

2020 Penfolds, Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz, Barossa Valley 6x75cl

“The 2020 Bin 150 is drawn from the Marananga sub region known for the impressive power and density of the local wines. While this label is generally opulent, the 2020 vintage has crafted a more... elegant, refined and almost St Henri like expression that is measured but still delivers wonderful power and complexity. It offers up focused tarry, licorice, choc-berry fruits with picture perfect sweet oak sitting pretty. There is then fantastic underlying strength which delivers a powerful core of flavour and extraordinary length with firm tannins in strong support. It's muscular and brooding right now but will flesh out beautifully over the next decade or more.” 94 pts., Angus Hughson

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, decanter.com

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

DE95JR17
"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, decanter.com

2020 Jean-Jacques Girard, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Serpentieres 6x75cl

One of Savigny’s oldest domaines, originally founded in 1529. Jean-Jacques has been producing wine here as the sole proprietor since 1998, and with significant recent investment in the cellar and... winery he is producing outstanding wines. With his long experience of viticulture, Jean-Jacques firmly believes that the best wines are made in the vineyard and thus focuses his efforts on optimising the quality and health of the grapes themselves. This effort is reflected in his delightfully supple, elegant and classic wines, with his Savigny and Corton releases of particular note in 2020. Jeane-Jacques Les Serpentières offers such great value. Opulent and concentrated raspberries and cassis are intertwined with hints of sweet-scented oak and velvety tannins. Outstanding.

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

2021 Boekenhoutskloof, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 6x75cl

VM91
“The 2021Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch contains no Cabernet Franc. It is matured 60% in new French barriques for 22 months. This is more compact on the nose than the Franschhoek bottling with... darker fruit, perhaps a little more Old World inspired. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp and focused. It's edgier than the Franschhoek cuvee, full of energy with a focused, graphite-infused finish lingering long in the mouth. Excellent.” 91 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

"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.

2022 Domaine Jacques Carillon, Chassagne-Montrachet 6x75cl

JM88-91
"Planted in 2013 close by the Château de Chassagne. Clear pale lemon yellow, with quite an open bouquet, light apple fruit, without the complete feel of the Puligny. A little youthful bitterness, but good length, an attractive wine which does not quite challenge the Puligny." 88-91 pts., Jasper Morris MW, www.insideburgundy.com

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

RP95+
"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, www.robertparker.com

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

DE93
“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, decanter.com
