Ch d’Issan 2016 | £570 per 12 | “This is a beautiful D’Issan” 93-95 poins Neal Martin

June 7th 2017


At Goedhuis & Co we adore the wines made by Emmanuel Cruse of Chateau d’Issan. His wines are always among the top five wines made in the region of Margaux, and a joy to drink. This wine is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon / 36% Merlot. The 2016 has an exquisite bouquet, so characteristic of Margaux, a soft, silky texture and beautiful purity. There is an underlying power, yet the wine remains subtle and gentle on the palate. The word seamless springs to mind and I thoroughly agree with Neal Martin when he says “this is a beautiful d’Issan”.

Ch Gruaud Larose 2016 | £620 per 12 IB | “Excellent” 93-95 points Neal martin

May 30th 2017


Gruaud Larose, situated to the west of Chateau Beychevelle on deep Garonne gravel soil, has the ability to produce stunning wine. The 1982 and 1986 vintages are close to 1st Growth in quality and the 1990 and 2000 are both brilliant wines. The 2016 is certainly the greatest wine produced by this estate since their 2009 and 2010.

Ch Palmer 3ème Cru Margaux 2016 | £1,440 per 6 | “Mesmerizing” 99-100 points, JS

May 19th 2017


  Any drinker who loves the beauty of classic Margaux must consider this exceptional wine for their portfolio. In 2016 they began their latest ever picking on the 3rd October – it was a warm September but it wasn’t hot. While tasting we were told it became evident very quickly that the quality of the grapes coming into the chai was top flight.
