SKU 756 Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Medoc 2016 (Offer $92 UP $98)
The Cabernet, dry-footed ripens well here and Merlot develops complexity - all helped by the proximity of river and ocean both moderating temperatures. 2016 is rounded and sappy with black-fruited finesse, all supported by well-integrated, silky tannins and graphite minerals.
The nose is dominated by the fruits, very aromatic with hints of black fruit, blackberry, blueberry. The palate is powerful enough tannic but the balance between fruit and tannins give a perfect balance to the lingering finish of this great wine.

Ruby red, plenty of dark, toasty oak spices and meaty barrel-ferment characters. The palate has a slightly greenish thread with flavors of wild raspberries and mulberries.

Situated in the appellation of Haut-Medoc, Chateau Peyrabon is a cru bourgeois with a strong personality. Its current owner Patrick Bernard, of the wine merchant Millésima, fell under the spell of the charming 50 hectare estate of promising gravel terroir in 1998. Since then, M. Bernard and his team, led by Xavier Michelet, have been passionately dedicated to creating authentic wines that are elegant, silky, and marked by their freshness and fruity character – typical of an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.

SKU 1107 Chateau Larose Trintaudon Haut-Medoc 2014 $48
Larose-Trintaudon is a little unclean on the nose, while the palate is soft and fleshy but needs more backbone and delineation on the slightly meandering finish.

SKU 1108 Chateau Larose Trintaudon Les Hauts de Trintaudon Haut-Médoc 2015 $42
Made from the property’s younger vines and with vinification at low temperature to favour fruit and the smoothness of the tannins.Ruby colour with a hint of tile red. The fresh red fruit aromas combine with subtle notes of coconut and tobacco from careful oak ageing. On the palate, roundness, fruit and a moderate tannic structure give an overall sensation of softness and creaminess. The finish is simple, soft and delicate.
