Hide the tasting notes

Deep purple ruby. Classic, fresh aromas of ripe blackberry, currants and cocoa. Smooth and silky with great length with some toasted oak and cedar/eucalyptus lift on the finish.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

This is very structured and tight with chewy polished tannins and blueberry, blackberry. Full and savory. Should develop beautifully.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark ruby. Sweetly gamey on the nose. A little light compared with some but very correct. Quite advanced. But just slightly austere in style. No one could object but I can't imagine many falling madly in love. Stones on the finish.

Score: 16 - 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2038

Pretty and aromatic, with flavors of kirsch and cherry preserves mixed with tobacco and bay notes. Stays energetic through the relatively sleek finish. Wins on purity.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Aromatic but plenty of lift and richness, gloss, sweetly ripe black fruit. Lightish, maybe not as concentrated as usual.

Score: 91 - 93 Albany Vintners

This is very big and rich wine with dense and rich tannins, lots of ripe fruit. Blackberry, blueberry flavors. Muscular yet polished.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Exceptionally deep crimson. Meat and wild flowers on the nose - very interesting. Definitely out of the ordinary. Left-field wine that should not disappoint. Racy and lifted. Really very elegant. Chapeau!

Score: 17 - 18 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2038

This has a mix of enticing dark plum and blueberry fruit woven with a solid graphite note and carrying through an alder-edged finish. Has the vintage’s velvety feel, but a little extra cut.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Overripe nose, lots of extract and gloss. Overdone. Finishing very dry.

Score: 86 - 88 Albany Vintners

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Calon Segur St Estephe Unreleased £440 - £560 - 92-95 93-94 17 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

Calon Segur is one of the great names of St Estephe. Quality has been in the ascendant since 2009 when Vincent Millet (previously head of R&D at Chateau Margaux) took over as Technical Director, with more emphasis on Cabernet fruit. Strict selection, a long-term replanting programme and a reasonable pricing policy means that there is never enough to go around en primeur. 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. Extremely frgrant with cassis, violets and black cherries. Medium body and concentration with poise and balance, effortlessly smooth tannins and a very long graceful finish.

Score: 92 - 95 Albany Vintners

This is very fine and integrated with black currant, walnut and fresh tobacco. Full body, pretty polish. Sophisticated. Well done for the vintage for this appellation.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. 47 hl/ha. 20 months in 100% new oak. Dark crimson. Pure and aromatic. Pretty dense and dry with a hint of sweet oak. Solid and concentrated. All set for the long term. Pretty introvert. Edgy finish but more sweetness than there used to be. Intense - more intense than usual for this property. A little attenuated on the end. Very solid indeed! 13.3%. (17+ Points)

Score: 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2036

A solid effort, with plum and dark cherry fruit showing the fleshier side of the vintage. Shows silky tannins underneath and a pleasant tobacco edge on the finish.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Canon St Emilion Unreleased £400 - £650 - 96-98 100 17-18 94-97 -
Hide the tasting notes

A gorgeous nose, broad, perfumed lifted St Emilion with bright pure blackberries, mineral and cloves notes. Bramble fruit with a dense sweet soft juicy texture. Beautiful balance. Long cashmere tannins, a dancing acidity and very good pure fruit length. Superb! The best Canon that we have ever tasted.

Score: 96 - 98 Albany Vintners

This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine.

Score: 100 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

72% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc. About 2/3 of the wine will go into the grand vin. 30% second-year barrels. 70% new. Sample 1, from a new Taransaud barrique: Very dark crimson. Very complete and juicy on the nose. Very rich and glorious! Luscious and spicy. Deep and rich. Quite savoury and structured. Very fine and tight. Dry finish. Not as much fun to taste in isolation. Doubtless a useful ingredient. Slightly drying end. Sample 2, from a new St Martin barrique: Very dark crimson. Very sweet and floral on the nose. Ripe and round. Lots to enjoy here! Real lift and very sophisticated. So long! Sample 3: And finally an official sample at the château: strong hint of iodine on the nose. Very luscious and supple at first and then with massive velvety tannins and almost dried-fruit sweetness and concentration. Bravo! (17.5+ Points)

Score: 17 - 18 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2023-2040

This delivers a pretty awesome display of blueberry, plum and raspberry fruit, both in its purity and depth, while the finish is carried by a very refined minerality. Large-scaled for sure, but seriously pure.

Score: 94 - 97 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
