Château Prieuré-Les-Tours 2002, Graves
New! £9.99 or £7.99 when you buy 2 bottles
Smoky bramble fruits on the nose with a rich, generous texture on the palate. Perfect with roast beef.
Château Moulin à Vent 1999, Moulis, Cru Bourgeois
New! £9.99 or £8.99 when you buy 2 bottles
Cassis, truffle and cedar on the nose, with a rich, round, refreshing palate, a softening structure and great persistence. Utterly charming.
St-Julien 2004, Grand Vin de Bordeaux
Classic St-Julien from a truly great source, with a beautifully balanced palate showing the depth, freshness and grip characteristic of this very good vintage.
Château Haut Tayac 2000, Margaux, Cru Bourgeois
Shines with Margaux’s trademark finesse and purity. The nose reveals tobacco and leather notes with plummy fruit, while the palate is complex and savoury.
Château La Grave Figeac 2002, St-Emilion Grand Cru
Benefits from the same terroir as the prestigious vineyards of Cheval Blanc. Offering red berries, blackcurrant, blueberry and a hint of spice, it’s drinking well now but can be cellared for up to five years.
