Château Brown Blanc, Pessac-Leognan 2014
Château Brown is situated in the Graves region just south of the city of Bordeaux and owes its name to a rich Scottish wine trader, John Lewis Brown, who settled in the region shortly after the revolution, in 1795. Since 2004, it has been run by Jean-Christophe Mau who has driven the Château’s quality and reputation to reach new heights. During the 8 to 10 months aging in 50% new oak, the wine undergoes lees stirring or battonage, the technique of creating more complexity to the final wine. Racy and well-defined, with lemon peel, apricot, clementine and baked apple. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful. 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon
Château Peyredon Lagravette, Haut-Médoc 2016
Nestled in the midst of prestigious neighbors such as Château Chasse Spleen and Château Poujeaux, Lagravette is a blend of 60 year old organically-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines. Each parcel is vinified separately in stainless steel and concrete, and aged for 12 months in French oak sourced from the forest lining this serene estate. Made in a classic and traditional style with concentrated black currant and dark plum flavors supported by firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity.
Connétable Talbot, St. Julien 2016
Sandwiched between Margaux and Pauillac on the left bank of the Gironde, St Julien offers the best of both worlds, combining the elegance of Margaux and the power of Pauillac. Château Talbot’s Connétable is one of the best second wines of the Médoc. Like its elder, this is a classic, densely structured wine with a long, fresh finish. Sourced from younger Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, it shows plenty of black cherry and wild berry fruit alongside cedar aromas. Refined yet full-bodied with supple, silky tannins.
Paveil de Luze, Margaux 2012
Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines of Margaux. Paveil de Luze resides in the illustrious company of Rauzan-Segla, Labegorce and Château Margaux. The 32 hectare vineyard of Paveil de Luze is planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot with an average age of 35 years. The wine is made in small, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats and aged in 30% new oak for 12 months. The 2012 is supple in texture, medium to full-bodied with ripe blackcurrant and cassis, hints of sous bois and delicate floral notes. Drinking beautifully now but will keep for the next 5 to 10 years.
Haut Roc Blanquant, St. Emilion 2015
Haut Roc Blanquant falls under the umbrella of Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, the owner and producer of several prestigious estates, including La Fleur Petrus, Trotanoy, Belair-Monange, and Dominus and Ulysses in Napa Valley, California. This estate is named after a historic parcel of the Belair-Monange vineyard and it literally translates to ‘High White Rock’, indicating the vineyard’s geology. 2015 is often compared to the great vintages of ’05 and ’82 with purity of fruit, elegance and precision. Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cab Franc, the wine is medium-bodied, rich and opulent with dark berry and currant fruit and a touch of oaky spiciness.
Château de Sales, Pomerol 2010
This estate has been in the same family hands since 1464 and sets a record in Bordeaux for continuous ownership of a chateau and vineyard for a single family.
The area under vine is considerable compared to the average holdings of most Pomerol estates with 47ha of contiguous vineyards, the majority planted with Merlot, with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot. Declared a modern classic by wine critics, the 2010 vintage was superb on the right bank, particularly for Pomerol and St. Emilion. Eleven years of bottle has softened this wine but still shows signs of youthfulness with concentrated black plum, blackcurrant, licorice and spice. Full-bodied with plush, integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish.
