Château Bélair-Monange Saint-Emilion

Château Bélair-Monange Saint-Emilion

Blue fruit, minerals, lavender and liquorice aromas are wonderful. Full body and ultra-refined tannins with an integration and refinement that make the wine seamless and beautiful. The powerful tannins reveal themselves progressively, but what structure at the end. It goes on for minutes. Try in 2024. 100 points

Château Trotanoy Pomerol

Château Trotanoy Pomerol

Breathtaking aromas of perfectly ripe fruit with blackberry, black olive, liquorice, cedar and sweet tobacco. Full body, incredible depth and power, yet this is always in reserve and check. Everything is in the right place for this new legend from Trotanoy. Try it in 2026. Will age for decades. 100 points

Château Margaux Margaux

A haunting young wine that shows a subtle and hidden strength on the nose with rose petal, currant, currant leaves, stone and plum. Wonderful ripeness yet brightness, too. Takes your breath away with the intensity and structure. Full-bodied, powerful and muscular, yet there’s an agile undertone. Compact and condensed. A new legend for Margaux. The 1961 that didn’t happen. Try in 2024.  100 points

Château Canon Saint-Emilion

Seductive. The nose draws you in deep. It’s like staring into a well of pristine dark cherry, dark plum, blackberry and mulberry. All the oak is perfectly subsumed. The palate is flawless, with immense depth and power, and it’s so balanced it appears to float. Immaculate fresh dark berry and plum flavours. Silky and deep, ribbon-like finish. Perfect. Best from 2022. 100 points

Château L'Evangile Pomerol

Stunning aromas of blackberry, black olive, brown sugar and dried flowers. Tar. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Superfine tannins, yet muscular and long. An amazing wine reminiscent of the great L’Evangiles of the 1950s. Straight track. Goes on and on. Truly great wine. Try in 2024. Just a baby. 100 points

Château Beauséjour Daffau-Lagarosse Saint-Emilion

This is extraordinary. There has never been a wine like this here since the famous 1990 or underrated 1989. Violets, flowers, stone and limestone. Oyster-shell undertones. Full-bodied, muscular and so structured. A phenomenal wine that reminds me of the great Bordeaux of the 1950s. Try in 2026. 100 points

Vieux Château Certan Pomerol

Vieux Château Certan Pomerol

The blackberry, blueberry, oyster shell and violet are so mesmerising. Full-bodied, focused and deep. It takes you to another space and plane. Dried flowers and dark fruit. The tannins are perfectly crafted. Keeps going as you taste it. Drink in 2023, but why wait? 100 points
