Chateau Valiniere Blanc is a great example of the quality available from relatively inexpensive whites from Bordeaux, especially form the Graves region, south of Bordeaux city. In fact some of the worlds finest white wines are made in this region, made from a Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend - fresh balanced wines with good minerality.
This second wine of the ever improving Chateau Lynch Moussas, offers smoky tabacco aromas a generously textured palate, and a really impressive length. This is classified as Haut Medoc but the stylistic Pauillac vineyard characteristics are evident.
Unlike its big brother in Pauillac, the second wine of Chateau Lynch Moussas is produced from vineyards in Haut-Medoc. Fresh red and black fruit aromas fill the glass with a touch of spice. Everyday claret!
Château Caronne Ste-Gemme is located in the municipality of St Laurent Medoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Emile Borie purchased the Chateau in 1900, it was passed down to his grandson Jean Nony-Borie who has directed the property since 1943 with his nephew François Nony. This is quite a big property over 150 hectares with gravelley soils. The varietals are divided bet…
Fourcas Dupre 2009 is now beginning to open up and show the evocative style of the 2009 vintage really well. It is still an infant mind, with ten years life ahead. The smoky coffe bean flavours are starting to emerge. Medium to full bodied ideal with full flavoured and savoury dishes.
Owned and run by the Lafon family since 1903, Chateau Tour St Bonnet is spread across 40 hectares with an average vine age of 35 years old. The estate is known for producing elegant and intense wines with dark fruit driven flavours. The 2006 is no exception, aged for around 18 months in oak foudres which gives a more subtle flavour than the commonly used barriques, there are notes of dried plum and pencil shavings on the nose with dominant dark fruits on the palate - theres a definite savoury note here. This is a great wine to serve alongside a meal, try it with a roast beef dinner.
This is a full bodied wine from Chateau Saint Paul, deep red in colour with a good level of acidity and red fruits on the palate. The savoury notes here make it an ideal match for a joint of beef or perhaps a piece of venison. A top quality wine at a great price.
This is a lovely, mature St Emilion offering those desirable tertiary aromas and flavours (coffee, tobacco, nuts) balanced wonderfully with the Merlot's ripe and rich characteristics and a fresh acidity.
An absolute Bargain!

A deliciously approachable wine from this excellent value Cru Bourgeois producer. The nose shows plenty of red fruit and subtle oak. On the palate, red currants and sweet spice with rounded tannins. Drinking well now (November 2018)

With 70 % Merlot and equal balancing amounts of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the Fleur Cardinale is a complex Claret for laying down for several years before it fully unveils the multi-layered character. The forward nature of the 2007 brings us an accessible and early maturing style.
Chateau Reynon is one of the best known estates in the Premieres Cotes appellation. This notariety extends to its owners the Dubordieu family, who are amongst the most respected in the region. Chateau Reynon Rouge 2009 (quoted as the best Reynon Rouge ever by wine critic Stephen Tanzer), is a hedonistic treat! Comprised of 80% merlot, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 10% petit verdot…
Fabien Vincent certainly gets the best out of his land, in Red, White and Rose. This second tier, in terms of quality, white bordeaux is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, on soil which reminds Fabien of that in Sancerre, and certainly there are similarities in the wine too. This is touch stricter than the entry level Bordeaux white, with a streamlined precision, it is dry, but …
Le Grand Rossignol is produced from 100% Merlot grapes from a single seven acre plot. It should be enjoyed along with red meat or duck and decanted before serving.
This unoaked Bordeaux Sauvignon has to be one of the best value wines in our portfolio, its fresh green fruit aromas and notes are very refreshing, and the flavours linger very well.
Chateau Rieussec is synonomous with great sweet wines; now part of the Chateau Lafite stable, continued investment has been guaranteed and the wines continue to impress.

The Vieilles Vignes cuvee is produced from 33 hectares of low yielding vines with an average age of 70 years. This wine carries a great deal of aromatic complexity; lots of dark fruit, warm spices and some tobacco. The acidity and tannic structure suggest that a few more years of rest would perfect this feast for the senses.
Rieussec is one of the top producers of Sauternes in the world, creating many memorable and delicious vintages. Carmes De Rieussec is the second wine from the Chateau, and tends to have aromatic flavours with a focus on citrus notes.
