It looks like this could be St Julien’s week. This commune was one of our favourites during the Union des Grands Crus tastings, and vies with St Estèphe as the best of this top-rated vintage. This morning sees, amongst others, Ch Langoa Barton out of the blocks.

Ch Fonréaud 2016 | £130 per 12 bts IB

May 10th 2017


This is a new discovery for us. We bought a parcel of the delicious 2009 last year which has become a go-to drinking claret for us. It was with great pleasure, therefore, that we discovered the 2016 stood out as a highlight amongst its peers at the Union des Grands Crus tastings. At £130 a case it offers excellent value as a drinking claret, with classic left-bank structure and style.
