2022 Domaine William Fevre, Chablis Premier Cru, Vaillons 6x75cl

VM90-92
"The 2022 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru had been blended the previous week, during which a majority of the lees is kept. Often one of my favourite cuvées from William Fevre, the entrancing bouquet has... impressive intensity on the nose. The palate is well-balanced with lemon verbena and touches pear, a fine sense of energy and composure, and a persistent finish. This already looks very promising." 90-92 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2022 Chateau Montlandrie, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

JS93-94VM90-92
“The 2022 Montlandrie was picked 8-23 September and matured in 50% new oak. The Cabernet components in the blend defined the nose that leans toward the Left Bank - graphite and tobacco filtering... through the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture, white pepper and clove, quite structured for this Castillon Cote de Bordeaux with a similar sapid finish as the Les Cruzelles.” Neal Martin, vinous.com

2020 Benjamin Leroux, Volnay Premier Cru, Les Mitans 6x75cl

JM88-91VM90-92
Benjamin has been a good friend of ours since his days at Comte Armand, and his powerful, impressive winemaking style shines through in 2020 where concentration meets with backbone and guile in the... Volnay commune. He remembers his first ever visit to the UK back in 1999 where he spent some time staying with Richard Wheeler (Johnny's father, sadly passed away last year), memorable not least for the friendly dispute regarding the relative merits of local Mersea native Oysters versus their French counterparts! Benjamin’s Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans reflects the greatest attributes of this excellent vintage. Density, richness and structure are all to the fore in a cuvée which gets better with every passing vintage.
