    80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This is full of spice, rich chocolate and fruit cake characters, while the tannins provide an underlying drive. The finish is packed with appealing sweet black fruits, hints of caramelised vanilla and cinnamon.

    Score: 89-92

    The 2018 Domaine des Cambes is plush, dark and enveloping, with striking depth and texture. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, leather, licorice, spice and menthol run through this supple, luscious Côtes de Bordeaux. The blend is 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec.

    Score: 18

    The Asian spices and cloves on this wine are incredible. It has a cooler feel than the L’Aurage (q.v.) and the control and length are astounding. The freshness of red fruit on the surface of the flavour coupled with the depth of black fruit in the core is extraordinary. This is a wild, fabulously velvety wine with a sweetness and lift on the nose which is exquisite. Unlike any other wines in the region, the Mitjaville portfolio is more otherworldly than usual in 2018.

Bordeaux

When the Romans first planted a few vines on the limestone outcrops of St Emilion in the early years of the first century, and tasted what was, by all accounts, rather thin, bitter wine, they can hardly have imagined that the region's greatest red wines would become the most sought afterfine wines in the world. From the days in the seventeenth century when the then owners of Ch Haut Brion, the de Pontac family, became the first to export to the UK, selling their wine in their own tavern, the Pontac's Head, red Bordeaux or claret has been the Englishman's favourite. The wines of the 1855 Classification are merely the tip of the iceberg. Bordeaux AC accounts for about half of all wine produced in the area, from vineyards outside the regional or communal appelations and often blended by the negociant houses. Simpler beasts these although still clearly related to their more illustrious cousins - relatively light and fresh, full of fruit, with soft tannins making for delicious, and good value, early drinking.
