THE WINES.
1. Château Recougne, Bordeaux Supérieur RED 2018. 78% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc.
2018 was a breakthrough vintage for entry level Bordeaux with a hot and dry summer leading to lashings of pleasure in even the entry level reds. This is a straightforward wine but a complete crowd-pleaser with rich aromatics and easy-drinking smoothness. Recently awarded a gold medal at the Gilbert and Gaillard International Challenge 2020.
Drink now to 2025.
The post-arrival price will be $26.56. Today's pre-departure price is $21.95 in any dozen.

2. Château Recougne Bordeaux WHITE 2019. 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris. New vintage
A crisp dry white that nails the drinkability sweet spot. The Sauvignon Gris adds a nice twist of juniper spice and palate finesse. Screw cap.
Drink now to 2023.
The post-arrival price will be $22.93. Today's pre-departure price is $18.95 in any dozen.

3. Château Tour Bayard, Montagne-Saint-Émilion 2014. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. New back vintage release.
2014 was a relatively cool summer but the south-facing (i.e. sun-oriented) amphitheatre of vines at Tour-Bayard came into its own to extract every last bit of energy that the heavens had to offer. The wine therefore is an extraordinary combination of ultra-high fruit definition and intensity but without any of the jammy over-ripeness that has been a potential pitfall of years like 2015 and 2018. The palate is 14% but there is an undeniable medium-bodied and elegant feel here and the tannin is firmly grippy and long lasting. This is a wine of classical finesse and understated power that defines the signature aromatics of Bordeaux.
Drink now to 2030. 
The post-arrival price will be $38.66. Today's pre-departure price is $31.95 in any dozen.

4. Château Au Pont de Guitres, Lalande-de-Pomerol 2016. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc.
2016 was a dream vintage for the boutique 3-hectare vineyard of Château Au Pont de Guitres, which is owned by the Rousselot family, friends and collaborators of Marc and Élodie. The wine is only aged in older oak barrels and so the fruit jumps to the fore with notes of blackberry and cassis, then mint, cranberry, and chocolate, and just a little smoky oak around the edges of the blossoming aromatic halo that radiates from this wine. The palate is full and dense, with silky tannins and a luscious, glossy richness.

Drink now to 2030+. 
The post-arrival price will be $48.34. Today's pre-departure price is $39.95 in any dozen.

5. Château Boutisse, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru red 2014.
 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Carmenère, 5% Cabernet Franc. This is the top and most cellarable wine from Marc and Élodie and it is all about channelled power and finesse. 2014 was a knife-edge vintage but this is an absolute screamer and the epitome of Bordeaux's old school Claret style. The aromatics are classic Bordeaux, cassis and cedar - ultra perfumed - charcuterie and spice, while the palate offers a sappy medium-bodied palate of gripping tannin and an endless finish.  This is a mesmerising wine of perfumed elegance.

Drink now to 2035.
Post-arrival price will be $60.44 per bottle. Today's special pre-departure price is $49.95 in any dozen.
