2015 Sirène de Giscours Charity Edition, Margaux

Dry | Red | Still | 14%

This is a special late release from Château Giscours: their second wine from an outstanding vintage. The label is the winning design from a competition launched in March 2021, designed by James Albon, and 100% of the profits from the sale of this wine will be donated to The Drinks Trust’s Covid-19 relief fund, to support members of the UK hospitality industry adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The wine itself is beautiful. Notes of violets and pure, dark Cabernet fruit on the nose, while the palate is detailed, with fine tannins and a savoury note underpinning the core of ripe fruit. The finish is chiselled and intense, with lots of energy shining through. This demonstrates why 2015 in Margaux is such a legendary vintage: it’s a stunning wine, for an excellent cause.

Ready: 2021 - 2035

2020 Château Montlandrie, Côtes de Castillon

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The largest estate in the Durantou stable, and one undergoing huge work - including on the olive groves, here. The 2020 is a lovely wine, with silky tannins and lots of bright red fruit. The finish is savoury and mouthwatering. Just a lovely wine.

2020 Château Montaiguillon, Montagne-St-Emilion

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

Montaiguillon’s 2020 is another resounding success, continuing a string of excellent vintages at the estate. It is a deep ruby colour with notes of spiced plums, cassis and blackberries on the nose. There’s a savoury, graphite note woven through the juicy, sumptuous palate. Its rounded tannins are already integrated with the plump fruit, and the finish has a fresh, balanced length, the likes of which you’d expect from wines with much bigger price tags.

92/100

2019 Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The final vintage from Denis Durantou, and a wine that’s not to be missed. This is grippy and finely judged, with a very long, savoury finish. I wine you simply want to drink.

Young: 2025 - 2038

2020 Château Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis-en-Médoc

Dry | Red | Still

The 2020 Branas Grand Poujeaux is an impressive wine, from an estate in a hidden corner of the Médoc that’s worthy of your attention. It’s deep and pure on the nose, with notes of iron oxide and lots of dark cabernet fruit. The palate is finely judged, with refined tannins and very long, savoury finish. This looks like a wine of a far higher price. A top addition to your cellar.

2020 Château Labégorce, Cru Bourgeois Margaux

Dry | Red | Still | 14%

The 2020 Labégorce is a beautiful Margaux, that's undoubtedly Cru Classé quality, but that's available at a much lower price. Notes of lavender and woodsmoke on the nose, and a structured yet elegant palate, that shows the best of this commune. A must-buy in 2020.

Young: 2025 - 2040

2015 Château Turon La Croix, Bordeaux Supérieur

Dry | Red | Still

The 2015 Turon La Croix is a delicious Bordeaux, that performs well above its price point. That's no surprise: it was made by Jean-Claude Berrouet, who made Château Pétrus for more than 40 years. Juicy fruit and lovely tannic structure define this 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc star. At this price, stock up.

Ready: 2021 - 2025

2020 Château La Garde, Pessac-Léognan

Dry | Red | Still

La Garde sits on a gravel bank above Latour-Martillac, and offers some of the best value we know of. It's classic claret, with black fruits, as well as classic Pessac smokiness, and well-judged, matte tannins. Such a great bottle to have in your cellar, particularly at this price.

2020 Château Lafon-Rochet, Cru Classé St-Estèphe

Dry | Red | Still | 13.5%

The 2020 Lafon-Rochet is a pick of the vintage. Basile sees this as the culmination of their efforts over the last six decades running the estate: validation, if you will. The wine is powerful yet silky, with incredible, velvet tannins, and a long, savoury, saline finish that screams of top St-Estèphe. It's an astonishingly good Cru Classé, that's not to be missed.

Young: 2026 - 2046

2018 Château Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis-en-Médoc

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The 2018 Branas Grand Poujeaux is a beautifully styled left bank claret, with loads of ripe berry fruit on the nose, notes of violets and a hint of baked earth, and plenty of lift, too. The palate is silky and detailed, with stunning length for a wine of this price. Tasting it blind, you’d mistake this for a Grand Cru Classé.

2020 Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

From the Durantou family of wines, this is a bottle that will never disappoint. There's a coolness here, but still so much fruit, and wonderful tannic structure. For a wine at this price point this will age brilliantly - everyone should have a bottle or two in their cellar.

Young: 2026 - 2039

2020 Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte, Pessac-Léognan

Dry | Red | Still

The first vintage this is called Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte, this is a brilliant start. Floral and focused, with plush fruit and lots of spice, it’s a wonderful reflection of its bigger brother. A remarkable red from the Cathiard stable.

Young: 2026 - 2040

89/100

2020 Château de Fonbel, Grand Cru St-Emilion

Dry | Red | Still

From the Ausone stable, Fonbel is an excellent source of good value right bank Bordeaux. The 2020 is punching above its weight, with a refinement yet exuberance that's not normally seen at this pricepoint. It points to the quality of the Vauthier winemaking.

Young: 2026 - 2037

2020 La Chenade de Denis Durantou, Lalande de Pomerol

Dry | Red | Still | 14%

The Durantou stable of wines are, once again, not to be missed, and this is the perfect example. So much going on here, with lots of bright fruit, crunchy tannins, and a long, stony finish. For the medium term this will surprise and delight. Stock up.

2020 Château Ormes de Pez, Cru Bourgeois St-Estèphe

Dry | Red | Still | 13%

Ormes de Pez is the kind of wine we buy year in, year out En Primeur here at Lay & Wheeler. Made by one of Bordeaux's most talented teams - the team behind Lynch-Bages - it's a wine that delivers spectacularly for its price. Savoury and focused in 2020, there's beautiful energy here: this is classic claret that will never cease to impress. In short, it's a cornerstone of your cellar in the years to come.

2020 Château Haut-Bailly, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Dry | Red | Still

The 2020 Haut-Bailly is spectacular: a wine that demonstrates where this estate is heading. Complex, powerful, incredibly fine, and remarkably long, this is one of the wines of the vintage. Whisper this quietly, but it’s not far off the quality of the firsts: one to secure while you have the chance.

2020 Château d'Armailhac, Cru Classé Pauillac

Dry | Red | Still

The 2020 d'Armailhac is a lovely Pauillac: one of the best barrel samples we've tasted from this well-located estate. Pure Cabernet fruit on the nose, with a beautiful gravelly texture, and a very long, savoury, well-balanced finish. Very well judged: a top pick.

2020 Château Batailley, Cru Classé Pauillac

Dry | Red | Still

The 2020 Batailley is true Pauillac. Dark blackcurrants on the nose, with lots of pencil shavings, and a structured yet beautifully refined palate. We can't wait to see how this ages: a smart purchase.

2020 Château Figeac, 1er Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

Dry | Red | Still | 14%

The 2020 Château Figeac is one of the wines of the vintage. Incredibly refined and almost haunting in its aromatics, this is so mineral, focussed, and utterly beguiling. The finish lasts an age: this is one of the longest, purest, most complex wines we've tried this year. You have to have it.

Young: 2028 - 2053

2020 Château Puygueraud, Cotes de Francs

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The other wine from the Thienpont family, the owners of VCC, Larcis-Ducasse, and Pavie-Macquin among others. This is a brilliant wine from the Cotes de Francs, with juicy merlot fruit, and an easy, supple texture. Far outperforms its price point.

93.75/100

2020 Château Latour-Martillac, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Dry | Red | Still | 14%

The 2020 Latour-Martillac is one of the hidden gems of the campaign this year. Matte tannins and smoky notes mark this out as a stunning Pessac: there's incredible vibrancy on the finish, too. This is a top notch effort, and is not to be missed.

Young: 2027 - 2045

2016 Keyneton Estate Euphonium, Henschke, Barossa

Dry | Red | Still

A blend of 57% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. The Shiraz comes from up to 50-year-old vines growing in the Eden and Barossa valleys, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from selected vineyards in both regions, some of which were planted by Cyril Henschke at his Eden Valley property in the 1960s. It’s pure and smoky on the palate, with lovely energy, and an impressive mineral finish. This punches well above its weight.

Young: 2021 - 2027

2016 Annonce de Bélair-Monange, Jean-Pierre Moueix

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The 2016 Annonce is detailed, deep, complex and very long. A blend of merlot with just a dash of cabernet franc, it’s a wine that impresses with its purity and power: it shows the very best of this spectacular vintage in Bordeaux. This is easily Grand Vin quality. At this price, secure it.

Ready: 2021 - 2033
