2021 La Dame de Montrose, Saint-Estephe 6x75cl

DE90
"Cocoa dusted blackberries and strawberries, you get that deep core, the baked fruit with aromatics touches - more herbal than the grand vin. Quite high-toned, verging on sharp with a real brightness... and vivacity to the red cherry and strawberry fruit. Fruit forward, smooth and direct, with mouthwatering acidity to the fore. You salivate such a lot here - and then get the wet stone mineral notes cleansing the palate. Pierre Graffeuille replaces Hervé Berland here, having arrived in March and taking over fully in October. 3% Cabernet Franc completes the blend." 90 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2021 Chateau Pibran, Pauillac 6x75cl

DE90
"Gorgeous florally, so sweet and welcoming. Lightly framed, delicate but fun and playful. Sweet purple flowers. Smooth, sweet but also sour, the succulent and creamy chalkiness is lovely. A nice... balance between the sweet fruit, the floral flowers and the freshness. Tannins are so fine and integrated. Such easy drinking, still with quite a vein and backbone of the spiced minerality - really long length. It’s gentle with this depth of flavour and intensity of perfume while still being light but the spice also gives depth. A lot going on here, with this lick of stone and graphite, dark chocolate and clove." 90 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2016 Buon Tempo, Brunello di Montalcino 6x75cl

DE90
"Open-knit and friendly, this cheerful Brunello leads with cherry and blackberry. Charmingly accented by flint and pepper, the palate offers lots of crunchy, fresh acidity. Smooth overall, with just... a touch of astringency showing up on the finish, it will make for delightful drinking over the next five to seven years." 90 pts., Michaela Morris, decanter.com
