The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
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!
A venerable vintage from Chateau Brane Cantenac, demonstrating the longevity of wines from this estate. 1966 was a good year for the Medoc and this wine is worth taking a chance on! A fully mature wine which should be drunk sooner rather than later!
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!
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.
Another medal winner from the 4th generation family-owned domaine. Deep colour with crimson tints. Brimming with black fruit flavours (black berry, black cherry), red fruits (cassis, crushed strawberry) and liquorice. Mineral, spicy
and toasty. Medium-bodied, mouth-filling texture and balance, with ripe and fine tannins. Long on the finish.
Great with red meat...
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.
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. The 2012 offers aromas of apricot, citrus and pineapple, combined with a concentrated fruity palate. The finish is long with honeysuckle and cleme…

This is a great value alternative to the sweet wines of Sauternes with candied and ripe fruit character! Monbazillac is an AOC appellation for sweet wines made in an area in the wider region of Bergerac, in southwestern France. While not as famous nor as expensive as their western neighbors from Sauternes, Monbazillac wines are some of the most well-known sweet white wines pro…
