[Add to shopping basket] Fleur Cardinale St Emilion £240 £180 - £240 - 15-16 88-90 89-90 89-91 86
Hide the tasting notes

Juicy black cherry, a nice bit of liquorice, and then very furry tannins that don’t really belong in this structure. Peppery spice to finish. Will these tannins ever fully resolve? (15.5)

Score: 15 - 16 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2026

A slightly confected nose with liquorice, tar. Sweet black fruits fill in the middle with lots of extract, finishing dry.

Score: 88 - 90 Albany Vintners

Attractive cool berry character with chalk undertones. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a silky-textured finish.

Score: 89 - 90 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Fleur Cardinale was picked between 15 and 23 October at 17hl/ha - a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a pleasant bouquet with ripe blackberry and cassis notes, perhaps just a touch of alcohol giving it lift. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is good weight here and decent tension on the finish, though it cuts away a little quickly. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 89 - 91 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Deep, dark colour. Dark fruit and chocolate notes. Touch more extraction. Slightly drying finish but the fruit there.

Score: 86 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2025

Quite solid, with a core of plum and boysenberry fruit studded with anise and roasted apple wood notes. This has a nice muscular feel, particularly for the vintage.

[Add to shopping basket] Fleur de Bouard Lalande de Pomerol £175 £150 - £195 - 17 88-91 90-91 - 86
Hide the tasting notes

85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Plum, redcurrant, milk chocolate, really charming and interesting, Smooth palate. Some coffee character on the finish. Very characterful, and more immediately appealing than their Le Plus cuvée.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2015-2025

Bright black damson fruit, very forward on the nose, less open on the palate. Lush and ripe with nice acidity and vanilla on the finish.

Score: 88 - 91 Albany Vintners

A very pretty wine for the vintage with a pretty center palate and richness. Full body and integrated with a long finish. A beauty.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Open, expressive dark fruit nose. Fresh and lively on the palate. Tannins fine. Not big but harmonious.

Score: 86 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2016-2020

Light, with a crunchy feel to the pomegranate and cherry pit notes. Savory and bay hints emerge on the finish.

Score: 86 - 89 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Gazin Pomerol £415 £360 - £480 - 16 90-92 - 89-91 89
Hide the tasting notes

Loads of cedar and clove notes from new oak, but the fruit is bright and bold too. Sieved but insistent mouth-coating tannin. Shame the finish is a bit brief.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2016-2022

Black cherry and violets on the nose then, pure and clean with high-toned black and blueberry fruit and minerals. Juicy fruit in the middle, ripe with nice structure and a lovely elegant fresh finish.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Nicolas de Bailliencourt told me that for the second year running the Grand Vin is pure Merlot. It has a perfumed and much more floral bouquet compared to recent years. There is fine precision here, though it is not a powerful Gazin. The palate is medium-bodied and just a little pinched on the entry. The structure feels firm, lending it a mannered, conservative feel, whilst the finish is balanced with a truffle tinged finish. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 89 - 91 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Pretty red berry aroma. Full, round and juicy. Fresh. Firm and masculine in style.

Score: 89 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Shows a firm plum skin frame, with a core of cherry, bitter plum and blackberry fruit. Lightly singed anise notes appear on the finish.

Score: 86 - 89 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Black cherry jam, vibrant and chewy on the palate. Full of vigour. Shame that the body and length are victim to the 2013 gentleness! Even so, a good, well-made wine. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2016-2023

A pretty fresh nose, then in the mouth light but juicy with cherries, brisk acidity and vanilla toast on the back end.

Score: 88 - 90 Albany Vintners

Clean and tangy with dried-berry and raspberry character. Medium body. Silky tannins. Gloria made the most of its grapes this year.

Score: 88 - 89 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

I tasted the Château Gloria three times and was never totally convinced that it will amount to much after bottling, which is a shame because the estate has turned round some outstanding wines in recent vintages. It has a rather herbaceous, undergrowth-scented bouquet that is missing some fruit concentration. The palate is pinched on the entry with high acidity and the finish is too abrupt. This is nowhere near the quality of the estate's superb wines in recent vintages. Tasted March 2014.

Score: 84 - 86 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Dense colour, good smoky cassis nose, depth and clarity of fruit, still green but good depth and class.

Score: 89 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2025

A plump, almost gutsy style, with dark plum and blackberry fruit, bolstered by ample roasted cedar and apple wood notes. Lacks range but shows solid muscle.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
