"2020 is an incredibly exciting vintage for Bordeaux. ….. a year brimming with phenomenal wines at all levels, from the big names down to bottles the average consumer can still afford to purchase by the case.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous
2020s are wonderful . We sold out of many of our wines but have secured some some very good values at more affordable prices for nearer term drinking. All these wines will be open for tasting. Critics notes are below.
How the offer works: Mix and match any wines at their discounted six or twelve bottle prices. Some are in stock now, the rest are arriving in the next two or three weeks. Some in limited supply and are offered subject to prior sale..

Ch. Haut-Bergey, Pessac Leognan $38 $35 $33

Ch. Tour Saint Christophe, St. Emilion Grand Cru $49 $45 $42
vibrant red/purplish fruit, beams of minerality, sweet floral notes and a touch of savory intensity on the close. What impresses me most about the 2020 is the purity of flavors. The creamy, resonant finish is a thing of beauty." - Antonio Galloni
Ch. Haut Brisson, St. Emilion Grand Cru $40 $36 $34
deep, fleshy and totally seductive. Inky dark fruit, plum, chocolate, leather, gravel and cloves all build as this sumptuous, opulent Saint-Émilion shows off its curves.

Ch. Grand Mayne, St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe $64 $58 $55
Very enticing, pure bouquet unfolds wonderfully in the glass, with ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, orange pith and subtle tobacco scents. with a precise, lightly spiced and persistent finish that leaves you wanting more. There's no excuse not to have a few bottles.
Ch. Maillet, Pomerol $57 $52 $49
Rich, ripe blackcurrant, plum and damons. potent, almost a liqueur aspect to the fruit which is just reined in by hig should be a smooth and seductive, if still highly charged, Pomerol in a few years. Decanter
Ch. Seraphine, Pomerol $199 $189 $169
highlights exactly why Merlot on the soils of Pomerol takes on an expression that is hard to repeat elsewhere. Highly Reccomended” Jane Anson, Decanter
