[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Beaumont Haut Medoc Unreleased - - - 90-91 16 - -
Hide the tasting notes

Deep colour with a classic nose of juicy blackberry fruit and cigar box continuing onto the palate. Soft black fruit, a hint of spice and a strictness to the structure making this a traditionally-styled claret.

Score: - Albany Vintners

A solid wine with tar, dark chocolate and berry character. Full and chewy. Impressive.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Pretty dark purplish crimson. Broad, luscious nose. Energetic and well balanced even if only medium weight and medium ambition. Easy to like with attractive fairly open fruit, even if hardly complex or long term. Drying finish with grainy, sandy tannins.

[Add to shopping basket] Belgrave NEW Haut Medoc £145 - - - 91-92 16 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

Full and very chewy. A powerful and rich sample. Best ever?

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Very dark purple. Savoury, meaty with just enough flesh and a very firm, almost astringent texture. Pretty severe.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2027

The dark plum and currant fruit is pushed by a strong tobacco note, along with accents of charcoal and grilled savory. Shows good heft through the finish without sacrificing definition.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Cantemerle Haut Medoc Unreleased - - - 93-94 16 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Rich nose with blackberry, pastry and white pepper. Polished with reasonable weight of ripe fruit and balanced structure.

Score: - Albany Vintners

This is a knockout. Excellent concentration of fruit and firm tannins. Very, very long. Fruity and intense. Same quality or better than 2010. Impressive.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Blackish crimson. Very opulent and perfumed. Rather light and simple though certainly friendly in the short term. Tannins are a little underripe with some greenness. Certainly respectable even if not a standout.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2019-2026

Rock-solid, with a lovely loamy edge to the steeped currant and blackberry fruit. Hints of warm paving stone and smoldering tobacco emerge on the finish, and should develop with time. A textbook Médoc Cabernet.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Senejac Haut Medoc Unreleased - - - 91-92 16 - -
Hide the tasting notes

This is exceptionally well done with currant, dark berry and blueberry character. Full body, firm tannins and a bright finish.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Mid crimson. Quite rich and floral. Well put together though not exactly earthy - more like a composite confection. Tannins and fruit far from married and the strength of the perfume is a little disconcerting but it should give pleasure. Dry finish.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2024

[Add to shopping basket] Sociando Mallet Haut Medoc £175 - - - 92-93 16 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

Chewy and rich with serious fruits and a nutty character. Full and long. Excellent length.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Deep crimson. Vibrant, deep-flavoured but slightly dark chocolatey fruit. Pretty tough on the end. Not Sociando’s finest vintage.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2032

Fresh, with good cut to the plum and black currant fruit, showing extra tobacco and iron notes on the finish. Has a good shot of toast, but enough fruit and minerality to soak that up. Rock-solid.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
