Description

2 x Chateau Fourcas Dupre Listrac-Medoc
The 2016 Fourcas-Dupres has a very elegant bouquet without shortchanging on fruit. The aromatics here are packed with blackberry, raspberry and light cassis aromas, the oak nicely integrated and with a subtle estuarine note emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, grainy tannin. There is plenty of fresh, energetic black fruit here laced with black olive and a pinch of brine, fanning out towards the satisfying, long finish.

2 x Chateau Tanesse Cadillac
This fantastic chartreuse property is owned by Eric Gonfier a very succesful vignerons and it is among the best of the appellation, producing firm, rich wine from predominately Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Tanesse has classic structure, but in recent vintages and with skilled winemaking this fruit forward style has really delivered a smooth easy drinking red with an extra depth of softness, some subtle oak, ripe tannins, and an excellent balance.

2 x Chateau Mayne-Vieil Fronsac
The vineyard is planted on fairly steep slopes of clay and silt soil. The 35 year old Merlot vines are trained low and planted close together. Permanent grass cover and green harvesting keep yields low. A ripe and pure nose, offering creamy black fruit and dark roast coffee. Tannins are firm but ripe and beautifully pure and linear, and the palate is concentrated and already well-knit, if still a little youthful. Packed with intense black, mulberry-flavoured fruit, the ripeness makes this very drinkable now and it will continue to develop more complexity over the next 5 years.

2 x Chateau Haut Grelot Rouge Cotes de Blaye
Notes of red fruits, slightly spicy from a blend of 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon, supple easy-drinking everyday claret.

2 x Chateau Fayau
A deep purple colour, this wine reveals flavours of red fruits, wild strawberry and cherry. It is supple and round on the palate with fine tannins and a plesant aromatic freshness. Fantastically modern and versatile Bordeaux.

2 x Chateau de Lavison
Medium depth of colour with red berry fruits such as raspberry and cranberry with a sprinkling of white pepper. There are some fine, elegant tannins on the finish which helps the length along.
