Critic Notes

Blueberries and chili on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. The texture is beautiful to this wine. Try in 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Score: 92-/100James Suckling

The 2009 Chambrun, cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare, is a final blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc that hit just over 14% natural alcohol. Bottled unfined and unfiltered by oenologist Michel Rolland, the wine possesses notes of chocolate fudge, blackberry jam, toasty oak, charcoal and graphite. A superb texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a terrific finish all make for a wine that should cost two or three times what this will fetch. Drink it over the next decade. ||These are two absolutely spectacular, over-achieving wines from Silvio Denz, who has managed to do the same brilliant work at St.-Emilion’s Chateau Faugeres and his Cotes de Bordeaux-Castillon property, Cap de Faugeres. There are two cuvees from this 21-acre vineyard planted on a clay and silex-like flinty soil over a deep bed of limestone. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Score: 92-/100Robert Parker

Fabulous aromas of crushed berry and blackberry, with hints of mineral and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a clean, fresh finish. The is the third year of Silvio Denz's ownership of the estate, and it gets better and better. 90 percent Merlot and 10 percent Cabernet Franc

Score: 90-93/100Wine Spectator

As well as offering a pleasing reduction in price versus their last two vintages, this welcome surprise set the tone for potentially one of the most exciting En Primeur campaigns ever. Last week our first releases ...

Mark my words here: Pichon-Lalande is an estate to watch. The terroir here and its potential has never been in question.  The 1996 is praised by many as being of first growth quality, and anyone lucky enough to own or have drunk the 1982 will tell you that it is about as good a bottle of claret as one could ...

Blending Masterclass at Chateau Pichon Lalande
Blending is an art form and remains rarely understood amongst us normal wine enthusiasts. The more one thinks about the process and the many variables the more difficult it seems to contemplate. The choices seem endless and the more one tastes the more confusing it seems to get! How can you tell that a certain combination is better than another? ...

Pomerol: Small but Beautiful
Bordeaux: the foundation of any cellar.  The greatest, and most famous wine producing region in the world.  The heart of fine wine production.  These are all arguable.  And, conveniently, there is rather a lot of it.  The average left bank chateau will have an annual production of up to 20,000 cases per year, and barrel cellars the size of football ...

Pomerol: A Tale of Two Vintages
We report from a visit by Pomerol Séduction, an organisation promoting eight top wines from the iconic Right Bank appellation in Bordeaux. On the tasting table were Bordeaux 2012s and 2015s - two very different vintages that both have stories to tell. As the scramble for this year’s En Primeur offerings from Bordeaux reached its climax last week, the FINE+RARE Team saw ...
