1. 2012 Chateau Petit Cantenac Saint Emilion Grand Cru 

Saint Emilion, France
RRP: €32.50 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

This is the second wine made from our older Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, the fruit for this wine was picked in perfect conditions during the cool early mornings of late September and early October. The colour shows a deep dark red which is marked by its’ beautiful Cabernet character, complete with fresh, lush rich notes of black plums, cassis, cherry, raspberry, figs, and fine leather, with further hints of liquorice, spice and soft vanillary new oak. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a pleasant attack of fine soft tannins and an aromatic evolution that spreads satisfyingly tight across the palate and becomes more defined as the wine lingers in the mouth. It is savoury, delicious and well-made wine, quite forward in style, with an elegant and rounded, supple blackberry and plum finish that displays good restraint and poise. Drink 2015-2020. 

 

2. 2016 Chateau MacCarthy Saint Estephe
Saint Estephe
RRP: €38 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

Château MacCarthy is a wine from the Saint-Estèphe appellation area, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux region, France. Once a significant and independent estate, it was bought by the Duboscq family of Château Haut-Marbuzet in 1988 and the brand has since then been used to label the second wine of their production. The estate was named after Dennis MacCarthy (1719–1796), a member of the eldest branch of clan MacCarthy-Diarmuid-Reagh, formerly established at Cloghan Castel, county Cork, Ireland. It is believed that the MacCarthys were Jacobite Catholics who followed King James II Stuart to France in 1692, after his defeat at the Battle of the Boyne. Among other noble Irishmen, like the Lynchs, the Clarkes and the Dillons, Dennis MacCarthy settled near Bordeaux, an active French port of the time, where he established his family.
Applied to Bordeaux, the broader movement of Irish exiles to Continental Europe known as Flight of the Wild Geese is called the "Flight of the Wine Geese" as many of them left traces in the Médoc wine industry by creating estates which bore their names.

 

3. 2015 Pezat Rouge Bordeaux Superieur - Gold Medal International Wine Challenge
Bordeaux Superieur
RRP: €24 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

Chateau Teyssier are behind this famous red from Bordeaux. Pezat is the brainchild of Jonathan Malthus, owner of Chateau Teyssier who realised he could make outstanding wines if he applied the same high standards of winemaking, using the same equipment as that which he uses for Chateau Teyssier Saint Emilion Grand Cru. The key differentiator would be bringing in grapes from outside of Saint Emilion, which would help keep the cost down, but the quality really high. Pezat is a stone's throw away from the legendary appellation St.-Emilion, where renowned winemaker Jonathan Malthus also makes his Grand Cru Bordeaux. Herein lies a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc hand-picked grapes aged in 1/3 new French oak. On the nose, aromas of red and dark berries, toasted notes, and hints of tobacco. Ripe plum, spice, medium acidity, and low tannin. Try pairing with bacon-wrapped anything and pork sausage.

4. 2015 Chateau Begadan Medoc
Cru Bourgeois, Medoc
RRP: €24 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

Château Begadan is located between Begadan, the small rural town which gave its name to the Château and Valeyrac, along the Garonne river. Here the Médoc’s poor gravel soil is perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, the back-bone of the wines of the Médoc.

 

5. 2014 Les Brulieres de Beychevelle 
Haut Medoc
RRP: €39 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

A delicate, harmonious wine. The palate is fresh and elegant with notes of red berries. Silky tannins. A delightful wine and now drinking even better than the 2015 vintage, with its 5 years of age.Brulières de Beychevelle's 12 hectares of vines are 5 km from Beychevelle's vineyard; being further from the Gironde estuary, they benefit from a cooler climate. The vineyard is in the Haut-Médoc appellation and has been managed organically since 2008. Brulières' blend consists of just two grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Vinified and aged in a separate winery, it is produced with the same level of care as Château Beychevelle and Amiral de Beychevelle.

6. 2016 Chateau Roc de Levraut 
Bordeaux Superieur
RRP: €22.50 per bottle
1 x 75cl bottle

Château Roc de Levraut is owned  by Remy Ballerin, a third generation winemaker. It is a cult wine with a following. The 2016 has just landed and true to the promise, it is exceptional. Critics like Jancis Robinson and Steven Spurrier have suggested snapping up this wine when you get the chance. Jancis remarking that it is softer and more supple than other Bordeaux. It will age comfortably over the next 7 – 8 years but it drinks lovely now. One made for drinking now and over the next few years a true sign of a classic wine.
