2019 Jean-Luc Colombo, Cote Rotie, La Divine 6x75cl

"Real intrigue on the nose with the viognier imbuing red apple skin to contrast syrah’s olive-black fruit, sweetly spiced notes and hints of smoke. On the palate juicy, sweet/dark fruit, with a... recurring streak of apply viognier and pepper. Well-structured, round, superbly concentrated; great length, juicy, with a generous, peppery finish."

2019 Le Petit Haut Lafitte, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

VM94
"The 2019 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is bright, airy and effusive. Even with 20% Sémillon, the Le Petit Blanc is light on its feet. Lemon peel, white flowers, crushed rocks mint and chalk are... beautifully sculpted. This chiseled, nuanced white is all class. A bright, saline finish rounds things out in grand style. Gorgeous." 93 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

VM89
"The 2019 Connetable Talbot is a hearty, rustic wine. Black cherry, dark spice, leather, tobacco and game show a good deal of intensity. ...this is nicely done and a tasty second wine from Talbot." 88 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2019 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

JR17
"Mid ruby with a touch of sediment – a sample blend, rather than a finished wine, as with the last two release presentations. Quite reticent on the nose, just giving hints of what it’s got – a... flash of creamy vanilla, a scent of ripe, plummy, black fruit and some toasted tobacco. Full bodied, with mouth-coating but fine-grained tannins. Plump and velvety – Merlot making its presence felt here. Pretty good length too. This is embryonic and a little closed, but I think has plenty to give – an attractive Guidalberto that will reward cellaring." 17 pts., Tim Jackson MW, jancisrobinson.com

2019 Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco, Asili 6x75cl

"Most approachable, even at this early stage. Yet the Asili Barbaresco shows mightily impressive depth of flavour for a cuvée that is all about delicacy and elegance. No doubt this is courtesy of... the naturally limited yields of the 2019 growing season, and the fleshy texture brings a level of opulence that befits this cuvée beautifully. Pretty gorgeous stuff… " Mr Wheeler Wine Tasting Note

2019 Roc de Cambes, Cotes de Bourg 12x75cl

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 Ridge, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Cruz Mountains 12x75cl

VM92
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers a hugely appealing mix of fruit richness married to the savoury, structured style that is the Ridge signature. The 2019 is beautifully exotic, but natural... without the volume of Monte Bello. I imagine it will drink splendidly with minimal cellaring. Succulent cherry, blood orange, mint, cinnamon and pomegranate." 92 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2019 Gerla, Rosso di Montalcino 12x75cl

VM91
"The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino makes itself known with a captivating display of dusty rose, fresh strawberries and hints of confectionary spice. This silky and feminine effort impresses further with a... savoury mix of red and hints of blue fruit, as salty mineral tones create a more tactile feel toward the close. A note of sour cherry pits lingers under an air of purple-tinged flowers as it tapers off lightly structured. The 2019 would benefit from a short stay in the cellar, and it should emerge as an incredibly pretty Rosso." 91 pts., Eric Guido, vinous.com

2019 Ben Glaetzer, Amon Ra, Barossa Valley 6x75cl

RP96
"The 2019 Amon Ra Shiraz is 100% Shiraz and 100% from the 2019 vintage, as Ben Glaetzer felt it—unlike many previous vintages—didn't need to be freshened with a small proportion of younger wine.... From old vines in the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley, it offers classic notes of blackberries and spice, framed by hints of cedar and vanilla (it's aged in 100% new oak hogsheads, mostly French). It's full-bodied yet crisp, supple but tight and really long. Offering lovely dark fruit, hints of espresso and black olive, it finishes mouthwatering and firm. Give it some time in the cellar and drink it from 2025 – 2040." 96+ points, Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com

2019 Domaine Rossignol Trapet, Savigny-les-Beaune, Les Bas Liards 12x75cl

"...a deep cherry colour with garnet highlights. It boasts a bouquet of small red and black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and flowers (violet). The body is ample and discreetly tannic and... the fruit remains present. Frequently one will find an elegant hint of Morello cherry. Roundness, volume, power and balance are all here, and in just the right proportions." Domaine Tasting Note

2019 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas 12x75cl

Under the vigilant and inspired stewardship of Thierry Faravel, Domaine de la Bouïssière has become one of the leading producers in Gigondas, producing classic, age worthy and expressive wines of... great balance. The 2020 is a traditional blend of three-quarter Grenache with Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the balance. The 60 year-old vines deliver an intense wine with dried Mediterranean herbs lifting the juicy black cherry aromatics. This is superb now and will improve over the next 3 to 5 years.

2019 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas, Font De Tonin 12x75cl

"This great wine is the worthy representative of the “mountain” of Gigondas. Composed of 80 percent Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, this dense, structured, textured yet fresh wine captures... fully the character of grapes produced by our oldest vines, growing on the limestone scree at the base of the Dentelles de Montmiral, between 300 and 500 meters in altitude. It too is vinified on whole clusters. ‘Le Font de Tonin,’ completely aged in barrel (a small part of which is new oak), shortly after bottling shows no marked presence of wood at all, revealing a wine that is powerful and rich yet pure and fresh, wrapped in smooth tannins. Its ability to evolve beautifully over the years is remarkable." Domaine La Boussiere tasting note

2019 Domaine de Cambes, Bordeaux 12x75cl

JR16
"70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Fruit pushed to the edge of overripeness but it works. Bright, dark-fruit notes with toasted overlay. Palate sweet, silky and gourmand, bringing a freshness to the finish. Clearly surpasses its appellation status. " 16 pts., James Lawther, MW, jancisrobinson.com

Virile, imposing and massively constituted, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth as well as persistence. As always, Feytit-Clinet is an especially rich, dense Pomerol.

2019 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz Margaret River 12x75cl

JR17.5
Bright, elegant, and fragrant, the nose has heightened floral notes of violets, lavender, cardamom and pepper medley. The core of fruit is in the line of black cherries and blueberries. Clove,... cinnamon, burnt toffee and petrichor provide delicate complex. Gentle textures, woven layers and bright acidity meet seamlessly. Dense Satsuma plums, redcurrants and raspberries surround the mid palate. Elements of smoked cedar and cracked coffee bean combine with a mineral thread, leading to long structural tannins.

"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières Vieilles Vignes is Sigaut's finest communal-level bottling this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of plums and raspberries mingled with hints of... cinnamon and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with an ample core of succulent fruit and powdery structuring tannins, it's seamless and complete." 91 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2019 Clos des Lunes, Lune d’Argent, Bordeaux 6x75cl

RP88-90
"Such an aromatic nose, wow, the aromas just jump out the glass - lime, mandarin peel, candied lemon - smells more on the Sauvignon side. This is lovely on the palate, it has a great weight with... definition and structure from the Semillon. There is acidity but it's really well integrated giving a rounder, more wide and weighty wine than light and super fresh. I like the style, it's gourmet and rich but still with a lovely lift and overall appeal. This also has a really delicate but wonderful florality to the fruit - perfumed lychee, pear and peach. Delicious. Just short of unctuous but on the good side. Crack open now and enjoy with food." 93 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2019 Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 12x75cl

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

2019 Chateau d’Yquem Premier Cru Superieur, Sauternes 3x75cl

DE97
"For certain, it has a highly-aromatic bouquet that is beguiling in purity, enticing aromas of honeysuckle and saffron, soon joined by camomile, white flowers and orange blossom. It has wonderful... delineation and gains intensity with aeration. The palate is supremely well-balanced with fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious and armed with just the right amount of viscosity, this Yquem is surprisingly understated at first but gains presence, offering irresistible flavours of layers of honey, lemongrass, lemon thyme and orange pith. Yquem is so tempting in its youth, but I feel that this vintage will repay those with the nous to cellar for at least a decade." 98 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com
