2018 Michele Chiarlo, Barolo, Cerequio 6x75cl

DE96
“Coffee, cola cubes, cherries and sweet cinnamon - such a gorgeous smell of Barolo. Smooth, delicate and refined with lifted acidity giving this such supreme drinking pleasure with subtle hints of... toasted sweet spice, dried herbs, floral scents and bright red fruits. Succulent and so joyous, the mouthwatering acidity is excellent and the overall impression is so detailed and nuanced. Careful and controlled with layers of elegant flavour. Really very good with brilliant Barolo signature. Still so fresh and expansive on the finish. Fermentation in 55l oak vats for 20 days with skins, minimum of three years' ageing; two in oak casks, one in bottle.” 96 pts. Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2019 Wynns, Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label, Coonawarra 6x75cl

DE95JR17.5
“The 64th vintage of this wine, and everything about this is magnificent. It is desperately classy and much more grand, seasoned and noble than expected. Bygone vintages have tended to err on the... muscular side of the tracks, but not anymore. This is a thoroughly civilised Cabernet with a finely tuned alcohol level, expressive, refreshing fruit and a heroically long finish.” 95 pts., Matthew Jukes, decanter.com.

2010 Chateau Musar, Red 6x75cl

JR18
“Bright ruby. Heady, rich and gamey on the nose. Very hedonistic and accessible on the nose with real density and lifted slight gaminess. An attractive singed character on top of very ripe fruit.... Great balance and freshness (but not excessive acidity) on the finish. Very neat on the end. Something rather wild and Romany about this. Already accessible even if I'm sure it will develop even more complex tertiary aromas.” 18 pts., Jancis Robinson

2018 Chateau Musar, Red 6x75cl

“The 2018 vintage has a deep garnet colour in the glass with dried cherries and mature red fruits on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated with cranberries, raisins, and dates; there is... good acidity with fine tannins. It has an enticing smoky, dusty fruit with soft liquorice undertones and at 6 years of age upon release, it is already developed and mature.” (Chateau Musar)

2019 Yann Chave, Hermitage 3x150cl

VM94-96
"A complex bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, cherry compote, licorice and violet, energized by a spicy cracked pepper nuance. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering densely packed, smoke-tinged... black/blue fruit, exotic spice and floral pastille flavors that pick up a minerally nuance as the wine opens up. Shows superb delineation and spicy lift on a long, silky finish framed by steadily building tannins. There were five demi-rnuids of this wine in 2019, all of them new." 94-96, Josh Raynolds, www.vinous.com

2019 Chateau Berliquet Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

VM92
"The 2019 Berliquet has a refined bouquet of lifted dried iris petal scents mingling with blackberry and wild strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins and fleshy red berry... fruit laced with tobacco and Chinese five-spice, and very well proportioned and detailed on the finish. Sophisticated. Tasted twice." 91 pts., Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

2019 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, Champonnet 6x75cl

JM92-95
"Delicious gorgeous purple. 100% whole bunch but smothered by the fruit. A balanced headiness if you like, and beautifully attractive. The stems add a little structure, almost some muscle to the back, which I think is valuable in these richer years." 92-95 pts., Jasper Morris MW

2012 Prunotto, Barolo, Bussia Colonnello Riserva 6x75cl

WE95
"A strong red in color with ruby highlights in color, the wine displays floral aromas of rose petals along with perfectly ripe red fruit (raspberries and pomegranates) and spicy and balsamic notes.... The flavors are intense with full, enveloping and supple tannins and a long and persistent finish and aftertaste. Its solid structure and firm body are an excellent match with meat and game dishes and with cheese." - tasting notes from Prunotto The Bussia cru is one of the most prestigious locations in the township of Monforte, the heart of the Barolo area. Within the confines of the Bussia sub-zone, Prunotto has identified a 2.5 acre plot known by local growers as “Vigna Colonnello” (“the Colonnello vineyard”). The plot enjoys a west-southwestern exposure with vines between 35 and 40 years of age. The soil consists of 25% sand, 25% clay and 50% loam. Given these special characteristics, the Colonnello fruit is fermented and aged on its own to produce a very special Barolo Riserva wine.

2019 Roc de Cambes, Cotes de Bourg 6x75cl

RP92
"The 2019 Roc de Cambes has turned out brilliantly, offering up aromas of cassis, sweet berry fruit, cigar wrapper, first floor and rich spices, followed by a full-bodied, layered, elegantly muscular... palate that's deep and concentrated, its fleshy core of fruit framed by ripe acids and ripe, powdery tannins. This is a terrific effort that may nip at the heels of the 2016. Despite its modest appellation, don't hesitate to cellar this, as Roc de Cambes is invariably better integrated and more interesting with a decade on the clock than on release." 92 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2019 Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

RP97
"The 2019 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a terrific success from the Mitjaville family. This amphitheatrical vineyard on the clay-limestone slopes of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, planted with low,... cordon-trained vines, has delivered a striking wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries and cherries mingled with notions of violets, cigar box, sweet spices and loamy soil. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, velvety tannins and lively acids, it will richly reward a decade and more of bottle age. Interestingly, proprietor François Mitjaville contended that 2019's distribution of rainfall had tended to invert the usual stylistic distinction between Tertre Roteboeuf and Roc de Cambes, his wine from the Côtes de Bourg; yet, on the day of our tasting, geology trumped weather, because as usual the former was more sensual, the latter blockier and more structured." 97 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2018 Castellare di Castellina, Sodi San Niccolo, IGT 6x75cl

WS96
"Lovely abundance and expression on the nose, you get that perfect clarity of fruit - black fruits and blackcurrant laced with violets. Strong, round and rich - this is densely concentrated with... power and punch. Gorgeous texture - dry with firm firm tannins and a direct fruit profile - tension and linearity yet there's plushness and ripeness here too. It's round yet direct but also sweet and succulent. I love that immediately juicy perfumed hit you get on the tongue, such brightness and energy here, the sweet red cherry edge is so delicious. Supremely charming but also fun, such playfulness going on with the flavours and the textures." 96 pts., Georgina Hindle, www.decanter.com

2019 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Monts Luisants 6x75cl

RP92
"The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Monts Luisants is another fine success, delivering aromas of plums, cassis, bergamot, spices and violets. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, it's supple... and succulent, with melting tannins and lively acids. Of Verdet's three premiers crus, this will drink the best young." 92 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2018 G.D. Vajra, Barolo, Bricco delle Viole 6x75cl

RP95
"The 2018 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is not super intense, but it is balanced in its own way. The wine is subdued but complete with softly yielding tannins to support an elegantly streamlined... mouthfeel. Bricco delle Viole is a high and cool growing site in Barolo at 400 to 480 meters in elevation with characteristic Sant'Agata marl soils with fossils. The wine represents a selection of fruit from over seven hectares. With fermentation in steel tank and aging in large Slavonian oak, you are invited to a silky, lifted and beautifully delicate experience with an accessible personality." 95 points, Monica Larner, www.robertparker.com

2019 Kanonkop, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 6x75cl

"The Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 displays aromas of blackberry, cassis, and blueberry combine with tobacco, cedar, and oak spice to create a complex bouquet. On the palate, concentrated black... fruit is supported by oak spice, roasted nuts, and a trace of fragrant fynbos. The tannins are robust, yet well-integrated and interwoven." Kanonkop Estate

2019 Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino, Montosoli 6x75cl

RP97VM97
“An enticing blend of steeped plums, blood orange, sage and sweet smoke makes the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Montosoli a total pleasure on the nose. Elegant and soothing, it flows across the... palate with a silken wave of ripe red fruits and spices as saline minerals slowly saturate under an air of violet inner florals. The 2019 is seamless and harmonious, leaving a coating of edgy tannins to contend with a bump of refreshing acidity as suggestions of tart cranberry and a bitter tinge of clove slowly taper off. This is Montosoli terroir at its very best, and even at this early stage, it's impossible to resist pouring another glass.” 97 pts., Eric Guido, vinous.com

2019 Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino 6x75cl

RP95VM94
“A dark ruby color in the glass, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a beguiling blend of dusty earth, crushed rocks, savory herbs and dried roses. This is racy and sleek, with vividly ripe... wild berry fruits elevated by orange and sage, all guided by vibrant acidity. Grippy tannins take control through the finish, yet the mouth is left watering for more as a bitter licorice tinge and dark chocolate adds a crunchy sensation.”

2019 Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Pinot Noir 6x75cl

“Our 2019 Pinot Noir opens with luscious dark red and black cherry, dried wild herb florals, with a touch of savoury brown spice. As the wine dwells on the palate layers unfurl, revealing silken... texture. Fine textured structure rises gracefully whilst being surrounded by a crunchy tang of acidity and a slight mocha note with some brown spice more vibrant red cherry notes on the long finish.” Matt Dicey, Winemaker

2016 Taylor’s, Vintage Port 6x75cl

"Dense and heady on the nose with an attractive green, leafy edge. Sweet and pump on the palate with lovely bright cherry and damson fruit – nicely defined but not as big as some. Firm, tight-knit tannins on a long, linear finish which shows off the lovely purity of fruit. 6,500 cases in total." 96 pts., Richard Mayson, decanter.com
