2013 Henschke, Mount Edelstone Shiraz, Eden Valley 6x75cl

DE97RP96+
“This Museum & Rare Collection release maintains a firm but fine backbone of polished tannins which, together with the youthful primary fruit (predominantly black), brings potency and great... presence to the palate. Sage, winter greens and underripe strawberry lend nuance and freshness. There is subtle viscosity too, with tertiary tapenade character and nutty, savoury oak. But there's plenty of mileage here too, with mouth-coating tannins and cleansing acidity to the finish.” Drink 2024-2043. 97 pts., Sarah Ahmed, www.decanter.com

2013 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard, Lalande de Pomerol 6x75cl

RP92-94
"The luxury cuvee, the 2013 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard, is a limited production from what is considered to be the best parcel in the vineyard. This 100% Merlot reveals unreal concentration as well... as an opaque blue/purple color, and abundant notes of blueberry liqueur, lead pencil shavings, violets, black currants and black cherries. Deep, opulent and voluptuously textured, this is a candidate for the wine of the vintage. It should drink well for 10-15 years, perhaps longer. It may be hard for readers to believe these two Lalande de Pomerols are better than many first-growths, but they are." 92-94 pts., Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com

2013 Christophe Pichon, Cote Rotie, Promesse 12x75cl

RP90
"A classic Côte Rôtie, the 2013 Côte Rôtie Promesse checks in as a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier, completely destemmed, and spent 14 months in one-year-old barrels before bottling. While... there’s only 200 cases or so of the top La Comtesse en Côte Blonde, there’s over a thousand cases of this beauty, so it should be easier to find. Offering textbook black raspberry, violets, bay leaf and raspberry notes, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, fine tannin and a sexy, forward, elegant and already hard to resist profile. I’d happily drink it anytime over the coming decade." 90 points, The Wine Advocate
