Château Amelisse

2020 Château Amélisse, St-Emilion Grand Cru

Dry | Red | Still

A Lay & Wheeler favourite for years, what's not to love about this St-Emilion, part of the Durantou family of wines. Silky and fine, with loads of savoury tannins, and long and pure finish. Buy this in bottles, and magnums, and make sure you've always got both to hand over the years to come.

Château Batailley
Critic Score
94.25/100

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 Branaire-Ducru, Cru Classé St-Julien

Dry | Red | Still

In a rich vein of form, the 2020 Branaire-Ducru is an astonishingly beautiful wine, particularly at this price. It's silky and fine, with detailed tannins, and wonderful floral lift. A complex, delicious wine that's not to be missed.

Château Branas Grand Poujeaux

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 Cantenac Brown, Cru Classé Margaux

Dry | Red | Still

The 2020 Cantenac-Brown is a huge achiever in 2020. Incredibly supple, silky, with stunning precision, it's possibly the finest Cantenac-Brown we've tasted. It's a must buy in the vintage.

Château Capbern

2020 Château Capbern, Cru Bourgeois St-Estèphe

Magnum Dry | Red | Still

From the Calon stable of wines, the 2020 Capbern is a real beauty. Fine boned and savoury, with just the right level of austerity, this is a delicious claret for the years to come. It's the sort of bottling we love - one for every cellar. And don't miss the chance to secure it in larger formats.

Château Caronne-St-Gemme

Dry | Red | Still

One of our go-to wines every year, the 2020 Caronne Ste Gemme is no different. It's just down the road from St-Julien, yet sells at a fraction of the price. It's everything we want from everyday claret, with cool fruit, refined tannins, and a noble freshness on the finish.

Château Figeac

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.
