[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Branon Graves Unreleased - - - 91-92 - 92-95 -
Hide the tasting notes

A red with layers of berries, dark chocolate and stones that follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh center palate.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Very backward, with a loamy wall of grip in front of the core of dark plum, currant and fig fruit. Features a long, bramble- and tar-filled finish. There's a lot going on here, but the parts are still wrestling with one another. Shows great energy overall, however, so this is easily worth one's patience.

Score: 92 - 95 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Carbonnieux Rouge Graves Unreleased - - - 89-90 15-16 88-91 -
Hide the tasting notes

A very typical Carbonnieux with wet-stones, berries and walnuts. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish.

Score: 89 - 90 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark crimson. Intense fruit juice nose (little evidence of oak!) and very enthusiastic extraction. Acidity dominates.

Score: 15 - 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2030

Has a brisk edge, with plum pit and Campari notes, followed by a hint of rose petal. Iron and sanguine hints chime in on the slightly sinewy finish. Should flesh out a touch more with the élevage.

Score: 88 - 91 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Chapelle de la Mission (2nd wine of Mission Haut Brion) Graves Unreleased - - 89-91 93-94 16 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Spicy peppery nose followed by leafy Cabernet notes. Tightly wound.

Score: 89 - 91 Albany Vintners

A wine with dark berry and currant character that is juicy and rich. Full-bodied, round, velvety and savory. Second wine of La Mission.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Mid crimson and medium weight. Solid bright fruit with some fine, well-managed tannins but very much a second wine. Chewy finish and altogether a bit lightweight and lacking any opulence.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2028

Vibrant blueberry and pastille notes form the core, with good energy from the savory and tobacco accents. Has a lightly chewy edge through the finish, giving this a grippy feel. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Clarence Haut Brion (2nd wine of Haut Brion) Graves Unreleased - - 90-93 93-94 16-17 91-94 -
Hide the tasting notes

Pure lifted aromas of blackberry and mint. Quite disjointed at this stage, with the component parts of Merlot and the Cabernet seemingly quite distinct. Nicely textured with a spicy oak finish.

Score: 90 - 93 Albany Vintners

Gorgeous second wine for Haut-Brion with firm and savory tannins. Full, refined and layered with meat, tobacco, dark fruit and earth. Serious.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Deep crimson. Rather silky and opulent. Polished fruit and some real depth. But pretty strict in terms of dryness. An edge of firmness and quite marked acidity. Only medium bodied. But some nobility in terms of oak quality and tannin management.

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2021-2030

Plump, fleshy and inviting in feel, with a strong plum pâte de fruit note leading the way, backed by anise, blueberry and tar flavors. Picks up lots of briary grip on the finish. Still youthfully raw, but exhibits good energy and stuffing. Tasted non-blind

Score: 91 - 94 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Domaine de Chevalier Rouge Graves Unreleased - - 93-95 93-94 17-18 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Complex, stylish nose with crisp black fruit, smoke and minerality. Soft and supple in the mouth with blueberries and smokiness coming through. Unforced and very beguiling with lacy tannins. Not too dry and the whole impression is very harmonious.

Score: 93 - 95 Albany Vintners

Very dense and beautiful with chocolate, currants and spices. Walnut and hazelnut character too. Full body, silky tannins and a long finish. Balanced and fine.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Particularly dark crimson. Intense nose. Quite thick and dense. Then soft and beguiling on the palate. Unusually low in acidity! Quite luscious. And a cool finish. Complete.

Score: 17 - 18 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2022-2036

Tightly focused, with red currant, bergamot, Campari and sandalwood notes woven together and carrying through the well-polished finish. Has a noticeable twinge of singed wood and sweet earth at the end. A touch more backward than most of the Pessac pack right now.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
