[Add to shopping basket] Canon St Emilion £370 £300 - £480 - 17-18 89-91 91-92 90-92 90
Hide the tasting notes

Cherry and plum, luxurious violet and pepper scent. Attractive layering of flavour and high tannins that don’t seem too ambitious given the good concentration on the mid palate. Good length too. Has a lovely sense of traditional structure with generous, sweet fruit and plenty of development to come. (17+)

Score: 17 - 18 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2019-2026

Mid-ruby colour. Lots of high-toned redcurrant fruit aromas and black tea. Bright and lively on entry then the fruit builds in the mouth to reasonable density of pure red cherries. Fresh and supple with a crisp finish.

Score: 89 - 91 Albany Vintners

A delicate and refined young red with a seductive and fresh character. Medium to full body, with a lovely subtle tangerine peel and a very fine silky texture. Bright acidity. All in elegance.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The 2013 is the first vintage in a long time with a high percentage of Cabernet Franc: a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. The vines were de-leafed on one side in July and the second side in September to achieve ripeness. It was picked from 1 October until 10 October and sees 70% new oak. There is a subtle marine influence on the nose with touches of marmalade and seaweed infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. This feels plush in the mouth with an attractive spicy, confit finish. This is a finely tuned, elegant Canon in the making. Nothing new there. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Fresh, brambly nose. Dark and red fruit with a leafy note. Mid-palate is smooth and sweet. Firmness and length on the finish.

Score: 90 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2019-2030

Shows a slightly firm woodsy frame, with balsa wood and sandalwood notes guiding the modest cherry and damson plum fruit. Presents a lightly dusty edge through the finish, leaning toward the austere side. This feels like the winemaking overreached a bit.

[Add to shopping basket] Cantemerle Haut Medoc £190 £175 - £225 - 16-17 87-89 - - 88
Hide the tasting notes

Black cherry, savoury and structural. No lack of ripeness, but pretty firm and unyielding at this stage. Reliable, classic claret with very enjoyable savoury character. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Sweet confected nose with plums, then pure fruit and mentholated notes, finishing dry.

Score: 87 - 89 Albany Vintners

Good fresh red and black fruits, some depth and class. An elegant southern Médoc.

Score: 88 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2024

Charming, with slightly high-pitched red cherry and damson plum fruit lined with a violet note. Not dense by any stretch, but manages purity and balance.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Capbern Gasqueton St Estephe £120 - - 17 - - 86-88 89
Hide the tasting notes

91% Cabernets, 6% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. Lovely medicinal character, classic blackcurrant fruit, dry but not at all astringent. The tannins are grippy but welcoming. This suits its medium body, seems to be very restrained and traditional. Lovely!

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2017-2027

The Chateau Capbern-Gasqueton 2013 is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon raised in 30% new wood. It has a light graphite scented bouquet that is a little subdued on the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins; graphite infused black fruit with a light classic finish. This is easy drinking but deftly crafted.

Score: 86 - 88 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Fragrant red and black fruits nose, freshness and minerality on the palate, very elegant wine.

Score: 89 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2026

Light savory and pepper hints fleck a core of soft plum and cherry fruit, with a floral twinge on the finish.

Score: 86 - 89 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Carbonnieux Blanc Value for money Dry Whites £210 £200 - £230 - - - 93-94 91-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

A very tangy and bright white with intense white peach, grapefruit and mineral character. Full body, crisp acidity. Gorgeous. One of the best Carbonnieux ever.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Carbonnieux Blanc 2013 possesses a very pretty bouquet furnished with citrus lemon and lime flower at first, delicate peach notes following later. The palate is clean and fresh: "zippy" in the mouth with commendable depth and a dab of lemon sherbet enlivening the finish. This is a very composed and "animated" Carbonnieux Blanc that will be worth seeking out after bottling.

Score: 91 - 93 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

This has an open, high-pitched feel, with chalk and quinine out front, followed by lovely savory, straw, verbena and white peach notes. A mouthwatering white.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Carbonnieux Rouge Value for money Graves £200 - - - - - 88-90 -
Hide the tasting notes

The sample of Carbonnieux Rouge has a dense, almost broody bouquet with dark plum and blackcurrant that is well defined and snugly knit with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a subtle marine influence on the entry. The tannins feel a brittle and the texture shows some hardness, but that will soften by the time of bottling. This should turn out to be a more masculine Pessac-Leognan that might benefit a year or two in bottle.

Score: 88 - 90 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

The vivid raspberry and bright cherry fruit is lined with an iron note, staying focused through the lightly taut finish.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
