The 2019 vintage of Jean-Marie Guffens' new cuvée has recently been released and the good news is that it has been awarded a whopping 92 point rating from the Wine Advocate. That's a score that many a Premier Cru Meursault would be very pleased to receive! The even better news is that it is a real bargain - just £160 per doz in bond.
The anticipation surrounding the releases of the 2016 Brunellos has been tangible. After the excellent, powerful and plush 2015s, a slightly cooler growing season in 2016 has given us purity, poise and depth. It is clearly the best vintage for Brunello di Montalcino since 2010, and one quite different in style to 2015.
2012 Château Cantemerle is, according to Robert Parker, “a wine of unmistakable finesse and delicacy”. This is one of the cheapest Classified Growths that are ready to drink available now.

2019 is another brilliant vintage in the Rhône, and Maison Chapoutier has made a "Flawless" set of wines according to Jeb Dunnuck, giving out multiple 100-point scores.
The Produttori del Barbaresco is a cooperative with a difference: it’s more of a members’ club, made up of fifty or so growers. The 2017 is an outstanding wine which Atonio Galloni gives 94 points.

Does the 2016 Bordeaux vintage live up to the hype? Is this one of the greatest vintages of our times? It seems that the answer is a resounding YES according to Neal Martin. His latest article in Vinous backs up what we all thought - 2016 is very special indeed.
Our ever-popular rosé from the south of France is on hand for this warm spell. Puech-Haut Prestige Rosé may have changed its name to Argali Rosé, but the liquid in the bottle is still the same fabulous wine.
Jean-Marie Guffens had the slightly crazy idea to produce a blend of the wines from his three Domaines and so Triangle de Guffens was born. It is a fascinating insight into the mind of this genius white wine maker.

Château Batailley 2005 and 2009 are two wines that offer great value, are ready to drink and are from two fabulous vintages. Great value mature Pauillac does exist!

We are convinced that you will not find a better Margaux at a lower price from the great 2009 vintage than the wonderful Ségla.
