Chateau D'issan 3eme Grand Cru Classe, Margaux 2015
Château D’issan is a Third Growth of the 1855 Imperial Classification. The wine is made from the old vines in the Château D’issan enclosure in the middle of the Margaux appellation. The soil here is mainly made up of surface gravel on top of a clay subsoil, which contributes to optimal ripeness and freshness in our two grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It has plenty of black plum flavor, although the firm tannins will play an important part in its development. The ample acidity and fresh finish are other harbingers for the wine's good future.

Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse De Lalande 'Reserve De La Comtesse', Pauillac 2015
The 2015 Réserve de la Comtesse is a superb second wine. Time in barrel and egg white fining have softened some of the tannins the 2015 showed as a barrel sample, but the fruit intensity, pedigree and class of the estate are all in the glass. Black cherry graphite, smoke and licorice are some of the many notes that infuse this potent, almost shockingly virile Comtesse.
Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 5eme Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac 2009
Ch. Grand-Puy-Lacoste is an exceptional wine in 2009. Elegant, concentrated yet fresh, this has a delicious basket of red and black fruit flavours and wonderful mineral precision. Sweet ripe tannins and a long, persistent savoury finish dominate the palate. Absolutely charming, this could be one of the best buys of the vintage. Sensational.
Chateau Prieure-Lichine 'Confidences De Prieure-Lichine', Margaux 2016
The red fruit is very appealing here with a wealth of raspberries and mulberries, as well as redcurrant notes. The palate has attractively juicy and succulent red berries and a chalky, piercing finish. Second wine of Château Prieuré-Lichine
