Unlike many of the 2007s this is a robust and full flavoured claret with tannins that are starting to integrate well and will please traditional claret lovers. Excellent value.

Chateau La Chenade 2008 (12) £16.29 £195.48
Lalande de Pomerol      
Not as forward as the 2009 - this is drier in style with less upfront fruit but well balanced tradtional styled Claret.      
       
Chateau Senejac 2012 (12) £18.99 £227.88 
Haut Medoc      

Hopefully arriving in the near future.

     
Clos de la Cure 2006/2010  (6) £19.50  £117.00

We have small quantities of this delightfully pleasing St Emilion. A most deliciously fragrant and sweet mouthful of claret but still upheld by good structure and tannin content.

 

Chateau La Haye 2009  (12)  £24.50 £294.00 
 St Estephe

 Another of the 2009 vintage which is stunningly good value as it can be drunk now, but will wait as well. Delicious velvety claret with excellent structure a real delight and recommended.

 

Chateau Potensac 2010  (12) £27.95  £335.40
 Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Dark in colour, still fairly intense blackcurrant flavours. Rich in style with firm tannins. This is a truly excellent example of medoc wine,

 Always an elegant and rewarding claret to drink, even in unfashionable vintages.

 

 Chateau Haut Marbuzet 2008  (12) £36.50 £438.00 

St Estephe

Still quite dark in colour, but starting to really come forward. Beautifully balanced, steady fruit with tannins that are integrating well. It will improve and mature in the next 5 years.

 

SWEET WHITE WINE

 Chateau La Fleur d'Or 2009

This is Bill Blatch's own label, so comes with its own reccendation. Fully sweet yet a long finish - excellent.

 

£12.50

Domaine de L'Alliance 2009 (50cl) O W C

Concentrated, deep nose, lovely sweetness on first taste. Followed by an explosion of delicate fruit and a long finish. Delicious and different.

 

 £23.00
Chateau Loit 2003  £29.00

Complex, smooth well made sauternes which compliments both Foie Gras and puddings beautifully. Always good value. (Limited stock.)

 

Domaine de Grange Neuve Monbazillac £9.75

This has more concentred sweetness than the Sauternes above, but still has elegance and style making it very good value.

 

Campbell's Rutherglen Muscat (Australia) £15.75 

 Sumptously rich, and almost caramel in colour, for those who love a real sweetie, this is it!

 

NB. As long as one case of wine is ordered a bottle of Sweet Bordeaux may be added if you do not require the whole case.
