Pauillac de Lynch Bages – The third wine of Château Lynch Bages was first created in 2009 and is made entirely from the fruit of the property. The wine comes from the younger vines and is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc.
It is a wonderful introduction to the property and while clearly Pauillac, the young fruit character gives a forward, supple style that delivers delicious early drinking.
One of Listracs most prominent estates with 17 hectares of vines. Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Yves Raymond looks to Merlot and Cabernet Franc, rather than Cabernet Sauvignon as the essence of his wines in order to help them achieve optimum ripeness. This is a rich and slightly spicy Bordeaux with concentrated tannins. Very good indeed, drink now or keep for 10-15 years
Superb quality Brunello, kept for three weeks on the skins, then three years in barrel and a further year in bottle. Flavours of wild berries, orange peel. Dry and austere on the palate, very long finish. Classic Brunello, great with venison or aged cheeses
Limited to just 3,000 bottles, this is a red, still, Grand Cru Champagne from Bouzy. 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown in a selected plot, complex aromas, gentle earthiness and light tannins complement the red berry and cherry flavours with hints of leather and spice.

Founded in 1974, Avignonesi is the leading winery in the Montepulciano area of Tuscany. The Desiderio is the perfect balance of sweet fruity aromas with blackcurrant, eucalyptus and cherries on the palate. Desiderio is the name of a Chianina bull, pictured on the label, which lived on the Avignonesi’s Capezzine farm over one hundred years ago and has become a legend. At his time, Desiderio was the largest bull in Tuscany and because of his amazing stamina, this majestic animal helped refine and define the Chianina cattle breed endemic to Tuscany

Incredible wine! Great complexity and aromatic intensity, notes of cherries, spices, tobacco, cassis, white pepper, and cloves with touches of mint and chocolate. Good structure and acidity, velvety and sweet tannins. Full bodied with a long and persistent finish.
Claude Marechal makes his wines as naturally as possible, taking his inspiration from his late friend Henri Jayer who he trained with early in his career. He makes wines above and beyond the expectations of his terroirs. His wines are pure and sleek with vibrant fruit and great potential to age. These wines are available in very limited quantities but are something you should definitely have in your cellar.
Maxime Dubuet-Boillot is a winemaker to keep an eye on – grandson of Pierre Boillot and currently the assistant winemaker at Domaine Remoriquet. His Volnay Sur Roches comes from 60-year-old vines and appears to be ‘only’ village-level Volnay. Sweet red berry fruit – strawberry, raspberry, sweet spices and a little wood. Very drinkable now but could keep for a decade or two (if you can wait that long!).
In the heart of Volnay this is an estate that was handed over to the son 8 years ago. Pierrick has since won the title of ‘Young Vigneron of the Year’ from Bourgogne Aujourdhui magazine. He uses minimal sulphur, none during fermentation and lets the wines evolve naturally. The results are wines with very pure fruit, not masked by oak, silky tannins and really good length. They are fantastic Volnay and taste just as Volnay should.
A single vineyard blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane & Mataro (Mourvedre). Pepper and raspberry aromas leading into dark plum and blackberry flavours with a hint of cocoa. Dry with chalky tannins and a lingering finish. This is excellent now but will gain complexity over the next 10-15 years too.
A classic Amarone with flavours of cherry, spice, chocolate and plum.
Domaine René Cacheux is tiny – just 3.26 hectares – but they have some very fine vineyards in the heart of the village of Vosne-Romanée.

Full bodied, structured and lightly spiced, this wne is elegant and fresh with a long finish.
A rich and opulent Super Tuscan from Argiano, a historic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot that’s full of molten black fruits and vanilla. Drink now for up-front flavour and intensity or wait and drink from 2023 for a more subtle and mellow experience.

This is one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon’s around at the moment. Black and red currants with hints of graphite and tar. There’s also complex notes of wood, tobacco and cedar. The terrior is really unique and that is expressed in the wine. The name, Main Road & Dignity comes from the names of the vineyards that the grapes come from.
Starting in 1859, the Gaja family have become pioneers in wine making for five generations. As each generation takes over, they bring innovation on top of their heritage; today Giovanni has acquired some of the best vineyards in Barbaresco and Angelo has introduced new methods of higher density planting, green harvesting, shorter macerations and longer corks.
The Ca’Marcanda Magari is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Lots of aromas and flavours of black fruits including black cherry, blackberry and liquorice with notes of Mediterranean herbs from both the Cabernet grapes. A richly flavoured wine with balancing freshness and acidity with refined tannins that give this wine an excellent aging potential. Drink with roasted red meats, casseroles and even pizza or pasta!
The Pousse d’Or domaine at Volnay was established in 1954.

A pure and silky wine which could comfortably sit alongside some of the greats from Burgundy. Powerful, yet elegant.
Valbuena is the purest expression of red wine at Vega Sicilia and is aged over five winters in barrel then bottle, hence the name of the end product: Valbuena 5º. The crucial first year of ageing takes place in barrel, with 75% French oak and 25% American oak. In this first stage, the aim is to amplify the wine’s structure, sense of sweetness and density. The second year of ageing takes place in large wooden vats and, during this stage, it gains elegance, complexity, tension and subtlety. The 2016 vintage is a floral and elegant wine, juicy and tasty with focused and clean flavours. A very good vintage that can age for decades – one to keep!
This is the estate’s flagship wine and the pinnacle of Ribera del Duero. A minimum age of ten years between barrel and bottle, one of the longest ageing processes in the world. Aromas & flavours of strawberries, autumnal leaves and fresh leather mingle with darker notes of bramble fruit and a hint of blackcurrants, sweet spice and dried chamomile flowers. Ripe and yet compact tannins lead to a long smooth finish. A delicious and yet brooding Único that will evolve beautifully.
