2015 Château de la Dauphine, Fronsac Dry | Red | Still

Pure and silky, this is a fantastic example of Fronsac that offers great value next to the more illustrious appellations of the Right Bank. It has precise berry fruits on the nose and a peppery spice, as well as sweeter spice and wild herb aromas. Concentrated but still refined on the palate, with a long savoury finish.

Ready: 2022 - 2038
2021 Château Montaiguillon, Montagne-St-Emilion Dry | Red | Still

Tasted April 2022. Montaiguillon’s 2021 is another example of what incredible value this property represents. Situated in an elevated spot right on the border of St Emilion, the terroir is exceptional. This year the wine has concentrated blackberry, cassis and spiced plum fruit, but a distinct fresh red fruit character as well, giving amazing freshness. There are developing savoury, graphite, earthy notes beneath which will develop and integrate with age. This is a fantastic, balanced, classic Bordeaux for every occasion.

2019 Château Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis-en-Médoc Dry | Red | Still

The 2019 Branas Grand Poujeaux is delicious and incredible value. It’s full of left bank character with cassis and blackberry fruit, a floral violet note on the nose and fresh, appetising acidity. There’s plenty of breadth and velvet texture on the palate and hints of earthy complexity developing. It really does punch above its weight, you could easily mistake it for a Grand Cru Classé.

Young: 2023 - 2042

A truly unique wine, only one barrel made for the Napa Valley Premiere wine auction. It’s a collaboration of four leading winemakers, Cathy Corison, Rosemary Cakebread, Dawnine Dyer and Diana Snowden. And it’s the only blended wine ever to be sold at the auction. It’s incredibly complex, drawn from fruit from four corners of the Napa Valley. The complex berry fruits are complemented by tons of wild herb aromas and elegant mineral notes. It’s concentrated but refined, with incredible length and potential to cellar.

Young: 2024 - 2050
