Wine Style “A very aromatic wine with a rich, full-bodied taste”

Vinalgros "Brilliant color with raspberry reflections, expressive bouquet of red fruits and blackcurrant with hints of dried fruits. Beautifully full, the aromas in the mouth continue to unfold; from vanilla to toast and blackberry ...In the mouth, a velvety tannin."

The Winemaker "Dense fruit, spicy, complex, muscular elegance, plump approaches and a very long finish. It shows a very nice nose with aromas of cherries, cassis, cedar, cocoa, coffee, pencil, bay leaf, thyme, pepper and violets."Grapes are from vines which are 25 years old or more. We use no herbicides, and the grapes are hand-picked. Vinification is by traditional techniques, with 14-18 months in oak barrels (30% new barrels)"

60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc

Chateau Jean Voisin was founded in 1583 and is a family run estate. Now owned by the Chassagnoux family, Chateau Jean Voisin has a reputation as an award winning winery. The prestigious Guide Hachette des Vins has awarded the estate stars over several vintages. Currently run by Xavier and Laurence Chassagnoux, the fifteen hectare vineyard is located on the Saint-Émilion plateau which is known for its exceptional terroirs. Neighbours include famous grands crus wineries such as Château Cheval Blanc, Château Figeac and Pétrus (Pomerol appellation).

Saint-Émilion is a key wine region in the Libournais district of Bordeaux, important in terms of both quality and quantity. Vineyards have been situated in the region since Roman times, and today the Saint-Émilion wine appellation is one of the most prolific in the Bordeaux region, producing more than 250,000hl of wine each vintage. It is also responsible for some of the most prestigious, long-lived and expensive wines in the world – Châteaux Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Figeac and Pavie. Only red wine qualifies for the Saint-Émilion appellation; although a small amount of white wine is made within the appellation, but it must be labelled as Bordeaux Blanc.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Wine & Waters “Beautiful, red color in the glass with bright reflections. Soft, harmonious notes of red berries such as currants and raspberries on the nose. On the palate, it is supple with well-integrated tannins. The finish is silky and elegant.” (2017 vintage)

A small, exclusive winery that focuses on quality and exclusivity – in 2017 they produced only 14,400 bottles. This Grand Cru is made with an unusually high proportion of Cabernet Franc (45%) for this region – the other grape used is Merlot.

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru wines are produced under slightly tighter production restrictions than regular Saint-Émilion wines. As with other grand cru appellations, the intention behind this is to improve the quality, and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more everyday wines.

Cellar Tracker "Muted nose of stages of decomposed forest leaves, plums, red fruits of raspberry, citrus, wet straw, touch of herb garden, splash of spicey fungus. Palate of savory glycerine with earth, saline, finishing with more spice than tar, but finished long. Very good. Started to loose it's body with lamb. But still delicious." (2016 vintage)

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "This structured wine comes from a chateau in the the eastern Entre-deux-Mers. Firm tannins and acidity combine well with juicy black-currant flavors. A dry core indicates that the wine will age. and be ready from 2020." (2016 vintage)

The House of Ségur is an old French winery dating back to the 9th century. The Marquis de Ségur, Nicholas Alexandre (1697 – 1755) was the largest owner of vineyards in Bordeaux (owning three First Growths: Latour, Lafite and Mouton) which earned him the nickname “Prince of Vines” from King Louis XV. Under the Marquis' influence, the wines of Chateau Lafite became firmly established in the London market. British Prime Minister Robert Walpole was a frequent customer, purchasing a barrel every three months.

Today’s 47-hectare vineyard, planted in 1992, is owned by Gisèle and Daniel Vidal – it is situated on a vast limestone plateau overlooking the breathtaking Segur Valley.

1 x Chateau Les Chaumes Lalande-de-Pomerol 2016 - Bordeaux , France

Awarded Chateau

Roger Barlow "There is finesse to this smooth, supple Les Chaumes; it is a wonderful expression of plum and bramble fruits and the careful use of oak leads to a complex finish without oak flavours dominating the fruit."

The Winemaker "Fruity and floral. This wine has great finesse with an impressive expression of red and black fruits." (2014 vintage)

A blend of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and is carefully oaked with only 10% new wood used each year.

Chateau Les Chaumes is a 3.5 hectare estate in Bordeaux located between two of the best appellations; Siaurac and Moncets. It has been owned for many generations by the Vigier family. Château Les Chaumes creates great organic wine, well known all around the world. The vineyard's terroir is mostly composed of clay-limestone soils. The best reds of the Château Les Chaumes winery are matured for 12 to 18 months and develop spices and vanilla notes. The wines are fruity and pleasant, reflecting the unique characteristics of the terroir.

Situated on the Right Bank of Bordeaux, Pomerol is dominated by small estates producing premium wines. Pomerol wines are rich, decadent reds, with notes of chocolate, dark cherry, plums and spice, soft tannins and elegance courtesy of the Merlot grape. The most lush—and expensive—wines come from a plateau of clay, gravel and iron, while lighter, more acidic wines come from the region's sandy soils. Approximately 80 percent of the region's plantings are Merlot, unlike other regions of Bordeaux where no one grape dominates so singularly; and one disadvantage is that bad weather can wreak havoc on an individual vintage.

Bordeaux is made up of many sub-regions that each have their own soil and climate. However, there are two major areas in Bordeaux, the Left Bank and the Right Bank. The names are derived from the location of each area to the left (west) and right (east) of the Gironde Estuary and Garonne River.

Unlike many other regions in France, where wines are made from single grape varieties, Bordeaux blends five major varieties in the production of its reds: Cabernet Sauvignon for structure and tanning, Merlot for softness and fleshy ripe fruit, Cabernet Franc for lightness in the body, aromatic finesse and peppery perfume, Malbec for flavor intensity, complexity and tannins, Petit Verdot which is used in small amounts for color adjustment and tannin.

Decanter ‘'Fine fresh cassis fruit, elegant tannins, structure and polished finish.’’ (2012 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson "Deep dark cherry. Very sweet and oaky nose. Mint verging on eucalyptus. Really oaky on the palate – chocolate and oak tannins dominate the fruit.'' (2012 Vintage)

For over half a century Château Vieux Robin has been producing excellent wine. This family owned Cru Bourgeois winery is located in Begadan at the far north of the Médoc.

The Médoc is a district of Bordeaux amid coastal lagoons, sand dunes and pine forests. It is home to four of the world's most prestigious wine villages: Pauillac, Margaux, Saint-Estèphe and Saint-Julien.

Silver Medal - Concours Mondial de Bruxelles (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "Some berries, spice and walnuts. Chocolate, too. Full-bodied, creamy and polished. Solid intensity." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "Aromas of berries, ash and light chocolate follow through to a full body with round, polished tannins and a long, creamy-textured finish. Nicely done. Try after 2023." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "With the extra year, this wine has softened from its initial tight and crisp character. It has an attractive touch of spice along with bright apple and tangy lemon zest. Drink this balanced wine now. Roger Voss" (2018 vintage)

James Suckling "Attractive, ripe dark fruit, spiced biscuits and currants abound. Impressive, dark-fruit flesh at the mid-palate and an even wrap of tannin. Good depth and drive. Drink or hold." (2017 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "The second white wine of Latour-Martillac shows great richness as well as fruitiness." (2017 vintage)

James Suckling "I love the ripe red and black-fruit nose, where hints of graphite and vanilla add complexity. An elegant, mid-weight wine with nice freshness, as well as good concentration and a long, clean and moderately dry finish that promises well for the future. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Better from 2020." (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "Some coffee and chocolate there, but the cassis fruit is dominant. Mid-weight with crisp acidity and some nice dry tannins that build on the fresh finish. Drink now." (2014 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This selection from different parcels in the Latour-Martillac vineyard is released when the chateau believes it is ready to drink. This wine is showing attractive signs of maturity as well as some of the tannins that mark out this vintage. It will probably remain on the dry side, meaning it will always be a food wine." (2011 vintage)

Falstaff "First maturity on the nose with chocolaty and nutty nougat notes as well as rudimentary almost truffle aromas. Melted palate at the beginning, round and soft at the beginning and then slightly tapering over the course of the palate and with mellow graininess in the tannins, juicy with surprisingly mild acidity considering the vintage, mineral undertones and a long-lasting, spicy juiciness on the finish. Should continue to refine for a few more years and then stay on its maturity plateau for a long time. -Ulrich Sautter" (2010 vintage)

The winemaker “On the nose, aromas of red fruits (cherry, wild strawberries) and blackcurrant. The palate is elegant and soft with notes of red fruits and lightly oaked. Well-balanced with good tannins on the finish.”

55% Cabernet Sauvignon; 40% Merlot; 5% Petit Verdot

Decanter "The Kressman family are reliable producers of often good value classified Pessac. Here again this is a very attractive wine....This is expertly done, no question that they are working with the vintage, and I am all for savoury fruit but this is lean in the mid-palate, and is one for lovers of classic-styled Bordeaux. The tannins are firm and oaking evident without being too much, ground coffee beans on the finish."

Château Latour-Martillac is a well-known Grand Cru Bordeaux property owned by the highly regarded Kressman family. The wines of Château Latour-Martillac gained widespread attention in 1934, when the red vintage was selected by the Wine and Spirit Benevolent Society of London for the celebration of the coronation of His Majesty George VI in December 1936.

Pessac-Leognan is a prestigious appellation for wines produced in a particular area of the Bordeaux region of south-western France. A relatively new appellation, it was carved out of the Graves sub-region in 1987 – recognized in its own right on the merits of its high-quality red and white wines. This was a significant change, as many of the chateaux in what is now Pessac-Leognan were the best performers in the Graves Classification of 1959.
