2023 La Dame de Montrose, Saint-Estephe 6x75cl

DE92VM92-94
“The 2023 La Dame de Montrose is a rich, heady wine. Succulent dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice, menthol, licorice and mocha are beautifully amplified. Explosive to the core, the 2023 possesses tons of aromatic intensity and pure volume. This showy, Merlot-based Dame is quite alluring.” 92-94 pts. Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Lascombes 2eme Cru Classe, Margaux 6x75cl

VM92-94
"The 2023 Lascombes marks a new direction for the Chateau. Dark and virile, with real intensity, the 2023 marries richness and energy. Black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice emerge from... the glass. This fleshes out beautifully on the finish, showing terrific breadth and nuance. The 2023 is, without question, the most elegant, finessed Lascombes made in many years. That won't surprise readers familiar with wines here that were often monolithic and one-dimensional. The 2023 will be a fascinating wine to follow. This is also a new chapter for Estate Director Axel Heinz, formerly at Ornellaia, who strikes me as a liberated winemaker these days—someone freed from the burden of expectations. Tasted three times." 92-95 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Pichon Comtesse Reserve, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM92-94
“The 2023 Reserve de la Comtesse is fabulous. This is the first vintage in which Cabernet Sauvignon drives the blend, the result of extensive replanting over the years and vines that are now old... enough to be used here. Among other things, that means the Reserve is more closely aligned with the Grand Vin in style, starting in the vineyard. Potent and explosive, the 2023 offers up a heady melange of dark fruit, leather, spice, grilled herbs and lavender. It's a stellar wine in every way. Tasted three times.” 92-94 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM92-94
"The 2022 Le Petit Mouton has an intense bouquet with violet infused cassis and blackberry fruit, just a faint touch of Medjool dates in the background. It opens extremely confidently in the glass.... The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. Structured, granular in texture and multi-layered, it's quite difficult to recognize this as a mere Deuxieme Vin. Long on the aftertaste, this is an outstanding Le Petit Mouton". 92-94 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Clerc Milon 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM92-94
“The 2023 Clerc Milon was picked from September 7 to 29 and is matured in 55% new oak It has much more fruit concentration on the nose than the Pastorelle—quite precocious, with blackberry and... cassis fruit. It's floral and more flamboyant than the d'Armailhac. The palate is very well balanced with a slightly creamy texture and a lovely mouthfeel. Its concentration is neatly counterbalanced by the acidity, and it feels very harmonious and long on the finish. Superb. If Mouton-Rothschild is beyond your budget—yes, I am familiar with that feeling—then this is where you should look.” 92-94 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2019 Domaine de Cambes, Bordeaux 6x75cl

VM92-94
"The 2019 Domaine de Cambes is stellor. Rich, ample and inviting, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth and textural resonance from the very first taste. Dried herbs, cedar, pipe tobacco, lavender,... spice and menthol are all kicked up in a wonderfully expressive Domaine de Cambes that hits all the right notes. This is such a gorgeous wine." 92-94 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

VM92-94
"The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion offers more red fruit on the nose than the La Chapelle de La Mission, perhaps more vibrant and expressive at this early stage. Touches of orange sorbet come... through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and forward. A hint of dark chocolate appears towards the generous finish that develops more structure after three or four hours in the glass." 91-93 pts., Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

2022 Domaine William Fevre, Chablis Grand Cru, Bougros 6x75cl

JM92-95VM92-94
"Fresh pale green tint. Didier describes this as the entry level grand cru. The average age of the vines is at or above 60 years. There is admirable tension here, an electric start, more middleweight... through the middle, then quite a powerful middle with decent dry extract, and good length. Keeps coming back." 92-95 pts., Jasper Morris MW, www.insideburgundy.com

2019 Domaine Albert Bichot (Pavillon), Pommard Premier Cru, Les Rugiens 6x75cl

JR17VM92-94
"Smoke and wild raspberry notions make for a most attractive nose, carrying a touch of reductive flintiness in the wings. The Rugiens tannins assert themselves, they are firm but crunch like starched... Atlas silk, breaking down into purest pleasure. This has class and structure, freshness and poise, lasting aroma and an overtone of poetry. Exquisite." 95 points, Falstaff.com, 03/2021

2020 Comte Armand, Volnay Premier Cru, Fremiets 6x75cl

VM92-94
*ON ALLOCATION - £408 per case of 6 bottles IB* One of the very finest producers in all of Burgundy, Domaine du Comte Armand is approaching its 200th anniversary very much at the top of its game.... After Pascal Marchant from 1985 to 1998, Benjamin Leroux from 1999 to 2013, Paul Zinetti is the third highly talented winemaker at the helm of this grand estate, and he is producing wines of rare depth, purity and character. The monumental Clos des Epeneaux, for a long time the only wine produced here, still gives the best Grands Crus a run for their money, but just as impressive is the unbeatable value delivered by the Auxey-Duresses cuvées and the delicacy and perfume of the Volnays. You can't go wrong at this address.

2021 Samuel Billaud, Chablis Premier Cru, Sechet Vieilles Vignes 12x75cl

VM92-94
“The 2021 Chablis Les Séchets ler Cru has another very backward nose and raised only in stainless steel for 18 months, this is another "serious", perhaps "mean" nose that is designed for the most... purist Chablis-lovers. The palate is very well balanced with a killer line of acidity, taut and fresh with a lip-smacking saline finish that begs another sip. Only to be drunk with a large plate of fresh oysters!” n92-94 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2022 Chateau Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol 6x75cl

VM92-94
“The 2022 Les Cruzelles was picked between 1 and 12 September and matured in 50% new oak. This has plenty of fruit on the nose: small red cherries, redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit, a touch of... cedar in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful definition and mineralité, dark fruit, hints of block tea and spices, really harmonious and sappy on the finish. Possibly the best Les Cruzelles that I hove tasted at this stage and sure to be an unbeatable value-for-money.” 92-94 pts. Neal Martin, vinous.com

2021 Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux 6x75cl

VM92-94
"Palmer’s 2021 Alter Ego is fabulous. Dense and rich in the glass, with positively explosive energy, the 2021 dazzles from start to finish. A rush of dark cherry, plum, spice, blood orange,... menthol, and licorice infuses the palate with tremendous intensity. Hints of rose petal and pomegranate appear later to round things out. The 2021 possesses tremendous textural richness that is evident from the very first taste. The aromatics alone are especially present today.” 92-94 pts, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
