2023 Chateau Clinet, Pomerol 6x75cl

AG94-96WI95-97
"The 2023 Clinet is powerful and racy right out of the gate. Crushed flowers, spice, mocha and a kiss of French oak meld into a core of dark red- and black-toned fruit. This modern, stylish Pomerol... is so expressive. Hints of graphite, lavender, crushed rocks and pencil shavings linger on the substantial finish. Tasted two times. 2030-2048." 94-96 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Beychevelle 4eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 6x75cl

AG94-96
"The 2023 Beychevelle is fabulous. As always, Beychevelle includes quite a bit more Merlot than most wines in the appellation, but the Cabernet is especially high here. Inky dark fruit, crème de... cassis, mocha, licorice and lavender build in the glass. This juicy, extroverted Saint-Julien has a ton to offer. The combination of fruit intensity, acid and supporting structure is superb. The 2023 is showy, but not at all overdone. Beychevelle remains one of the most distinctive wines in all of Bordeaux. It is especially classy in this edition. Tasted two times. " 94-96 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Brane-Cantenac 2eme Cru Classe, Margaux 6x75cl

AG94-96DE96
“A great aromatic hit on the opening beats, giving way to silky tannins, spiced plum, rhubarb and slate, cassis and bilberry fruit, all showing depth and intensity. Such an accomplished wine, once... again showing how it's done. 100% new oak for malolactic and ageing, 8 coopers, 28 different toasts. 45.7hl/h yields, which is generous for this vintage in the Margaux appellation. Harvest September 14 to October 2. 3.59ph.” 96 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2023 Domaine de Chevalier, Blanc Cru Classe, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

AG94-96
"The 2023 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc was picked from August 28 to September 6 at 45hUha. It's a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. This has wonderful purity on the nose, revealing scents... of lime, green apple and crushed stone—one of the most precise I have encountered at this early stage. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that lends this white Pessac-Leognan superb focus. There's real intensity here, building with a sense of nascent confidence toward the mineral, almost slate-like finish. Very long and tender, this is a white Domaine de Chevalier from the top drawer.

2023 Domaine de Chevalier Cru Classe, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

AG94-96
“The 2023 Domaine de Chevalier was picked from September 7 to 30 and contains 13% alcohol. This is quintessential "DdC" on the nose: black fruit, sous-bois and hints of black olive at first, subtle... marine notes emerging with time in the glass. There's wonderful focus and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with pencil-shaving-tinged black fruit on the entry. Perhaps a bit grippier with more spine than one would expect (especially following the more sensual 2022), this is very traditional in style, with a tremendously long and satisfying saline finish. Superb.” Drink 2029-2060. 94-96 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2021 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 3x75cl

AG94-96
"The 2021 Grand-Puy-Lacoste if fabulous. Bright and punchy, with terrific aromatic presence, the 2021 is a terrific example of the modern classicism of the year at its best. It’s the sort of wine... that needs years or maybe even decades to truly blossom, and yet all the requisites are there for that to happen. There is something about Grand-Puy-Lacoste that is absolutely striking in 2021. I can’t wait to taste it from bottle. Tasted two times." 94-96 pts, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
