Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan
LIMITED In Stock (1 Available)

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Really classy, breedy nose. Great `pepperminty` taste. The real Haut Brion finesse of texture on the palate. 03/04

Representative blend: 45% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. The second wine is Clarence de Haut Brion (previously Bahans Haut Brion).

Haut Brion is sited across the road from its sister property, La Mission Haut Brion. Both are within the southern suburbs of the city of Bordeaux, and surrounded by development on all sides. It is in part this very specific (and quite warm) microclimate which gives Haut Brion its unique taste - Havana tobacco, earth and spice. It can also be the most velvety and seductive of all the first growths, and to some extent remains underappreciated for its myriad subtleties and beauties.

Haut Brion has been owned by the American Clarence Dillon family since the 1930s.

Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (4 Available)

Label artist: Raymond Savignac

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Lovely, warm, generous nose. Soft, spicy and so easy on the palate, with so much more fruit than most 1999s. This is made to be drunk from its tenth birthday. 01/07

Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan
In Stock (11 Available) SEE MORE SIZES

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Tasted at a great Imperial dinner in Hong Kong in 2011. Such an extraordinary spice bazaar bouquet – it reminds me of a stroll through the Cairo market! Then a touch of sweet mint and basil. So soft and velvety, with a glorious ‘inky’ finish. Tobacco and mineral, meaty and huge. An impressive vintage here and a totally winning wine. From bottle in 2013, full of character and absolutely stupendous. An explosion of fruit and sheer Havana depth. Huge tannic structure too. 02/13

Latour, Pauillac
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (6 Available) SEE MORE SIZES

Representative blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot. Annual production: 16,000 cases of Grand Vin and 8,000 cases of Forts de Latour. The third wine is simply called Pauillac de Latour.

At the very southern end of Pauillac stands the unmistakable medieval tower of Latour, which marks the heart of the vineyards, sloping gently down to the Gironde river beyond. This proximity to the river both wards off spring frosts and cools the vineyards during particularly warm summers. The result is that Latour produces extremely consistent wines, however tricky the vintage. Above all, this is a wine of power: enormous tannic structure and great density of fruit make this one of the most long lived of all Bordeaux (rivalled only perhaps by its neighbour Léoville Las Cases).

In recent times Latour has made waves by withdrawing from the annual Futures campaign; its wines are now only offered when the estate considers them ready for drinking.

Latour is owned by French businessman Francois Pinault.

Yquem, Sauternes
Bordeaux: Sauternes: 1ER CRU SUPERIEUR
In Stock (10 Available) SEE MORE SIZES
Serena Sutcliffe, MW: "Very scented, concentrated and heady on the nose. Glorious creamy rich texture combined with great elegance and length, reminiscent of 1986/1988. Another bottle had a great peachy bouquet. Incredibly unctuous, guava richness on the palate. A hugely original Yquem, with stunning fresh acidity. In 2007, an Imperial was absolutely show-stopping, perfect, icy beauty that was truly awe-inspiring and incredibly creamy. I could not get enough of it. All this was reconfirmed in 2010." 10/10

Latour, Ex-Chateau
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (11 Available)

This bottle was released from the cellars of Ch. Latour in 2014

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Last tasted at a great Imperial dinner in Hong Kong in 2011. A lovely ‘sweet’ bouquet, almost ‘floral’, like the 2000. Very hedonistic. Under all the ripeness, there is terrific structure. Red fruits on the finish. Marvellous wine which wowed everyone. 11/11
