Displaying subtle fragrances of honeysuckle, powerful passion fruit and goosebery flavours on the nose, which develop into blackcurrant leaf, lime and ripe nettles on the palate.
This 92-point claret is made by Château Meyney, the only winery in Bordeaux that has clay soils similar to those at £2,500-per-bottle Pétrus.
A deep and lush ruby colour, with an alluring nose of rich fruit, and subtle touches of violet, smoke, and leafy herbs. Fulsome yet elegant, the tannins are smooth and the palate tightly structured.
With a classic 'left bank' nose of smoky blackberry fruit and pencil lead the palate is rich and rounded with assertive tannins, ample fruit and well integrated oak. Perfect with beef or lamb.
A fantastic Rioja Reserva aged for six years by the bodega. Fresh cherry. Sweet spices.
A layered, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery behind The Chocolate Block.
"Very deep garnet-purple colored, notes of warm blackberries and blueberries with nuances of menthol, some spice cake, anise and bacon fat". 91 points. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate.
