75cl Bottles, Case of 12: €78.00 (In Bond)
3 bottles Château Méaume, Méaume Reserve du Château 2010
Alan Johnson-Hill only makes the Reserve du Château in really good years—it is the pick of his crop and is aged in second year barrels bought from the legendary Le Pin in Pomerol.
Alan's notes on the wine:
"Our 2010 is developing into a really powerful, robust wine. The Tannins are slightly stronger than the 2009, making it a very structured wine, with plenty of ripe fruit."
3 bottles Château Beaumont, Haut-Médoc 2010
Beaumont, owned by the same company who run Beychevelle, has overachieved once again to produce a splendid 2010—excellent plummy sweet fruit with good concentration, balance and complexity.
"Distinctive autumnal notes on the nose. Fresh and vital and relatively lightweight but very serious. Round and polished on the palate. Full of appeal and with just a bit of leafiness to stop it being sickly. Lots of pure pleasure and confident attack here. Appetising. Sinewy." —Jancis Robinson 16.5
3 bottles Château Tour St Bonnet, Haut-Médoc 2010
From the northernmost point of the Haut Medoc Tour St Bonnet has always made reliable, classic claret at a very good price. The wines tend to be a little tough when young but after 3-4 years open up with lots of blackcurrant fruit and lovely tobacco notes.
"Solid, well balanced, just very slightly tart but lots to get your teeth into here. Quite suave even if a bit lacking in charisma. Lots of mineral character."
—Jancis Robinson MW 16/20
3 bottles Château Marjosse, Bordeaux Superieur 2010
One of the great value 2010’s which in our view is a step up from the 2009. Made by Pierre Lurton, ‘Cheval Blanc and d’Yquem’s famed wine maker.’ Drink 2012-2016.
"Lots of licorice and ripe berry character, full body, with ripe tannins and a fresh finish. From Pierre Lurton of Cheval Blanc."
—James Suckling 89-90
