2023 Clos des Lunes, Lune d’Argent, Bordeaux 6x75cl

VM90-92
"The 2023 Lune d'Argent was picked from August 28 to September 21 over several passes through the vines. It comprises 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. The Lune d'Argent has an open nose, a... little lighter than expected, though it gains intensity with aeration. Scents of Golden Delicious apple and light grass clippings emerge from the glass. The palate is nicely balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and sapid, presenting a lovely umami sensation. It has a fair bit of complexity toward the pithy finish thanks to that Semillon. Excellent." 90-92 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2023 Chateau La Serre Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

VM90-92
“The 2023 La Serre was picked September 13 to October 4. This has a lovely, sensual nose with raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and just a hint of vanilla. It's always one of J-P Moueix's more... seductive entry-level wines. The palate is medium-bodied with plush tannins, fine acidity, a velvety mouthfeel and a vivid, red cherry and black pepper finish. Very promising.” Drink 2026-2038. 90-92 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Potensac, Medoc 6x75cl

VM90-92
"The 2023 Potensac has a well-defined nose: predominantly black fruit, with touches of seaweed in the background. I warm to it more with acquaintance, and it gradually coheres. The palate is... medium-bodied with pliant tannins and a fine line of acidity. Silky-smooth in texture, you can tell that there is some quality new oak on the finish, which is simpatico with the fruit. It's a good, solid Potensac that will require three or four years in bottle.

"The 2020 Volnay Les Mitans 1er Cru has a generous bouquet with red cherries, blackcurrant and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite spicy with white pepper and clove notes towards the finish. Very fine, but it needs time." 90-92 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

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

JM92-94VM90-92
"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
