Critic Notes

Score: 16.75-/20Decanter

Full and very chewy. A powerful and rich sample. Best ever'

Score: 91-92/100James Suckling

Score: 91-/100Tim Atkin

The dark plum and currant fruit is pushed by a strong tobacco note, along with accents of charcoal and grilled savory. Shows good heft through the finish without sacrificing definition.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.

Score: 89-92/100Wine Spectator

The 2014 Belgrave, which has been owned by Dourthe since 1979, has a backward, cedar and woodland-scented bouquet with hints of cold stone percolating through the black fruit with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well integrated oak and a sense of harmony and composure towards the finish that just needs to lose a little nascent hardness. This is a well-made Belgrave to enjoy over the next decade. Mar 2017, www.robertparker.com

Haut-Brion 2009: Double Magnums & Imperials
Robert Parker calls this 100 point scoring Haut-Brion 2009 "one of the most compelling examples of Haut-Brion ever made" and we have a handful of exceedingly rare 3 and 6 litre formats available... According to Jancis Robinson Haut-Brion 2009 combines "pleasure and luxury", and what could offer more pleasure or be more luxurious than the same wine in double magnum ...
