SKU 854 Chateau Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien (Grand Cru Classe) 2012 $158 Sold Out

The colour of this Gruaud Larose 2012 is a beautiful garnet. The nose is expressive and opens with spices and black fruits.

The ageing in barrels is still noticeable with nice roasted notes. In the mouth, it has the presence of great wines, both powerful and elegant. The tannins are supple. The spices assert themselves first then, after good aeration, it is the fruity notes that come to caress the palate. It reserves a very nice complexity. A great Bordeaux wine for a difficult vintage.

SKU 1059 Château Léoville Poyferré Saint-Julien (Grand Cru Classé) 2017 $158

Before the licorice, black cherry, truffle, and cocoa-filled bouquet seductively arrives, you’ll notice a startling depth of color. Full bodied, rich and flowing with the darkest of red fruits and gently dusted with a blast of even darker chocolate, this wine is wrapped in cashmere. It is graceful and fresh from the very first dance to the long good-bye.

SKU 1127 Château Branaire-Ducru Saint-Julien (Grand Cru Classé) 2014 $128

This Fourth Growth St Julien estate has been performing consistently well for the past several vintages and 2014 is no exception. The nose is pretty, attractively perfumed, fresh and expressive. The palate is dominated by rich, fleshy fruit. There is a purity here, great precision and ripe tannins which grip, and offer an intense focus. High acidity, complexity and a persistence on the finish suggest this wine has excellent potential for aging. Elegant and fine, it is a wine that the château can be proud of. Bravo indeed.

SKU 1064 Chateau Lagrange Saint-Julien (Grand Cru Classe) 2017 $98

2017 was early and contrasted. The total rainfall is lower than the average of the last twenty years. The month of April was particularly dry. The cool nights culminated in severe frost on the 27th April. Spring was warm with average rainfall. Flowering occurred early, quickly and in ideal conditions. The summer was warm and dry until September 8th. A tremendous work carried out to mark 250 000 vine stocks during colour change made the intra­plot selection process easier at harvest ­time.

SKU 1058 Château Léoville Poyferré Château Moulin Riche Saint-Julien 2016 $88

A new chapter in the life of Château Moulin Riche would begin at the end of the 1980’s, focusing on a significant restructuration of the vineyard to better express its identity. At one time, it was the second wine of Château Léoville Poyferré, but later gained its independence as a ‘grand vin’ in its own right.
