2017 Chateau Cissac, Haut-Medoc 12x75cl

JR16
"66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot on gravel. A cru bourgeois. Unnecessarily heavy bottle. Colour of black cherries with purple rim. Rich black fruit on the nose, a touch of cassis... leaf adding lift, surprisingly open. Sweet-fruited and with some oak sweetness on the palate too but with the savoury quality of the Médoc to balance the fruit. Finely textured and supple tannins and a lovely freshness from start to finish." 16 pts., Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

2021 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

JR16
"80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. 35 hl/ha. Cask sample. Lively and fresh with red-berry notes. Tension and length on the palate but sufficient fruit to add a bit of flesh. Chalky, terroir finish but nothing tough or exaggerated. Pleasing medium-term drinking." 16 pts., James Lawther MW, jancisrobinson.com

2021 Le Petit Cheval, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

JR16
"60% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc. 13% of production. Cask sample. Dark-fruit aroma. Long and linear on the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon marking the blend (first time this much in Petit Cheval). Crunchy fruit with a firm grain of tannin. Structure for a bit of age." 16 pts.

2019 Domaine de Cambes, Bordeaux 12x75cl

JR16
"70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Fruit pushed to the edge of overripeness but it works. Bright, dark-fruit notes with toasted overlay. Palate sweet, silky and gourmand, bringing a freshness to the finish. Clearly surpasses its appellation status. " 16 pts., James Lawther, MW, jancisrobinson.com
