[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Aile d'Argent Dry Whites Unreleased - 95-96 - - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

The impressive ripeness and intensity combined with elegance and finesse are what make this wonderful white. Honeysuckle, apricots, glazed grapefruit, spices and nutmeg. Medium to full body and fleshy fruit that’s lifted by the delicious acidity to the long finish.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

A plump style, featuring lemon curd, pear and shortbread notes starting to define themselves, with white peach and honeysuckle accents.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Super-intense citrus – pink grapefruit. Smoky, scented richness, full and fragrant with apricot in the mouth. Firmly textured, structured, dense and still so fresh. Very, very long. Chalky depth on the creamy textured finish.

[Add to shopping basket] Alter Ego de Palmer (2nd wine of Palmer) NEW Margaux £585 New - 92-93 - - 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

This shows excellent body and depth of fruit. Rich and very deep. Layered and flavorful. Solid and chewy. Serious second wine.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Lively, featuring lots of lavender and savory hints mixed with black cherry and plum flavors. Shows a light bramble note. Open-knit, with juicy energy on the finish.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The second wine of the estate, the 2017 Palmer Alter Ego is a similar blend to the Grand Vin and is 53% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. It has beautiful ripeness and density as well as ample black fruits, licorice, and toasted spice aromas and flavors. With good volume, a big, concentrated mid-palate, and a good finish, it’s slightly more elegant and streamlined than the Palmer and will be drinkable at an earlier age.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Angelus St Emilion Unreleased - 96-97 - - - -
Hide the tasting notes

This is a centered and deep red with blueberry, raspberry, mineral, stone and lemon aromas. Full-bodied, focused and polished. Lovely length. Gentle yet structured. Supple.

Score: 96 - 97 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

One of the darkest colored wines in the vintage is the 2017 Angélus. Its final blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, which includes more Cabernet Franc than usual. It's a polished, elegant, layered wine that has beautiful notes of crème de cassis, spice, graphite, and minerality. It has medium to full-bodied richness, fine, silky tannin, beautiful purity and more elegance and charm than normal. I suspect it will put on weight with time in barrel and have two decades or more of longevity.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Armailhac Pauillac Unreleased - 93-94 - - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Opulent and powerful for d’Armailhac with blackcurrants, blackberries and black olives. Full-bodied, tannic and extremely muscular. Very well done indeed.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Juicy and forward, with anise-tinged plum and cherry fruit backed by a light brambly structure. A lingering chalk echo adds length. This delivers nice latent depth.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
