Chateau Vray Croix de Gay, Pomerol
Chateau Vray Croix de Gay is a precise and well-honed wine that in many vintages passes unnoticed by the wide majority of Pomerol buyers, which is unusual as its consistent poise and balance, and proximity to esteemed neighbours Châteaux Lafleur, Hosanna and Lafleur-Pétrus make it a very impressive prospect.
"Earth, chocolate and dark cherry with supple textures and good concentration on ripe, sweet black plums in the finish." The Cellar Insider (2011 vintage)
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2011's deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by hints of plum sauce, soy, black currants, black cherries, smoke and new barrique notes. The wine has loads of flavor, a corpulent, fruit-driven style, and lots of potential. It should drink easily for 10-12+ years.£95.00
Chateau de Ferrand Saint Emilion Grand Cru '06 Magnum
The wines from the Saint-Emilion area in Bordeaux are appreciated by lovers worldwide for their finesse and elegance. On the calcareous clay soils of this domain the Merlot grape dominates, which is supplemented by a small proportion of Cabernet Franc grapes in Cuvée. The Lambert family attaches great importance to a careful, traditional ageing in oak barrels (about 18-24 months), so their wines never show an intrusive or superficial "wood tone".
The 2006 vintage presents itself full-bodied and rich, a supple red wine with a rich bouquet of blackcurrant, ripe strawberries backed by fine, spicy aromas. The initial taste on the palate offers a firm but supple backbone, predominated by fruitiness, with tight, flavoursome tannins. The finish benefits from splendid, long-lasting aromas. An interesting fact about this Grand Cru wine, it is from the estate of the late Baron Bich - of Bic pens fame. Also, Chateau Ferrand is only sold when ready for drinking yet, while it is drinking well now it could mature further.Learn More£95.00Out of stock.

"Opulent apricot nose. Plump and robust, with rich mandarin fruit. A long, spicy finish." Decanter Magazine£135.00
Clos De La Roche Grand Cru, Georges Lignier & Fils
Clos De La Roche grand cru is often the most robust of the wines from the terroirs of Morey-Saint-Denis which gives it a more rustic side in the tannins and allows it to age more than others. It has a very fruity bouquet with notes of cherries, violets and a touch of nuttiness. The best vintages will age for up to 25 years later without any trouble, even if a small deposit always forms with the years.Learn More£145.00
