DOES PLEASURE EXIST BEFORE WE SHARE IT
From unity to diversity or from diversity to unity
Our selection of exceptional bottles from the Château, the container for each of them, is the result of a unique work, carried out by each of the Châteaux below. The large formats, for a long time reserved for collectors, because they are very difficult to find, are now a container that is very often requested at the Primeur. Generally speaking, the larger the format, the better the ageing potential. Thanks to the relationships we have with all the Bordeaux estates, we have been lucky enough to be able to obtain bottles that have become impossible to find on the market. Often they are part of the cellar reserve, preciously kept by the Châteaux. We can now offer you this collection in anticipation of the next few days, which we hope will be happier.

Château Latour-Martillac 2015 : A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. This 2015 vintage has a magnificent deep garnet red colour. The very intense nose illustrates a beautiful maturity with notes of red fruits (raspberries, Morello cherries) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). The wood is present but not excessive. Shaking reveals complex aromas of peony, liquorice, crème de cassis and cocoa. The full, dense and tight mouthfeel is already seductive. The tannins, both powerful and caressing, contribute to the classic profile of this wine. The finish is long and delicately toasted.
Château De Fieuzal 2010 : Blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Petit-Verdot. Château De Fieuzal 2010 is a very generous wine. It is both racy and supple, with a beautiful precision that translates into an unsuspected acidity. The aromas are dominated by notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and violet, but also of tobacco, even spices, with slightly peppery accents. This is undoubtedly the result of a blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot. This wine is the result of a historically small crop and has a unique capacity to evolve over time. A vintage that will undoubtedly set the standard.
Chateau De Fieuzal 2012 : A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc were vinified in stainless steel tanks, while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot were vinified in concrete tanks. The few batches of Cabernet Sauvignon, rich and concentrated, were isolated in five wooden vats. This blend gives off notes of berries, spices and some woody accents. Blackcurrant is the main flavour, with hints of pepper and vanilla. The Cabernet Sauvignon and undoubtedly also the Petit-Verdot express all their power here and dominate the aromatic palette as well as the sensation in the mouth. Combining density and richness in the attack, this wine then becomes fine and delicate, with a flawless structure and a fresh finish.
Château Haut-Bailly 1999 : A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit-Verdot. A great wine, almost “hand-crafted”, a character marked by classicism, a very Haut-Bailly vintage !
Château Haut-Bailly 2012 : A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot. Fruity, fresh and dense, the 2012 vintage has tight tannins and expresses all the virtuosity of Haut-Bailly.
Château Lagrange 2006 : A blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot. The colour is rich and deep. The nose is dominated by fresh fruit without over-ripeness, and by toasty notes. Hints of citrus mingle with the woody envelope and liquorice aromas. On the palate, the attack is well structured and ample. The evolution remains virile, very generous and remarkably powerful. The finish is long and silky, without tannic hardness. This is a typically Médoc vintage, combining concentrated elegance and smoothness, while preserving the freshness provided by the superb Cabernets. To be enjoyed between 2014 and 2040.
Château Lagrange 2008 : A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. Notes of iodine and violets appear with time. On the nose, a sensation of freshness and purity of aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with ripe tannins. Well-balanced, it opens up in the glass but its tannins will take years to mellow. Drink it between 2015 and 2035.
Château Cheval-Blanc 2011 : A blend of 43% Cabernet Franc and 57% Cabernet Franc. The colour is a deep crimson red. The first nose immediately reveals its complexity. The expression of the aromas delivers floral facets of violet and peony which evolve towards red fruit, raspberry and black cherry. This vintage is characterised by its brightness, its aromatic freshness, its precision and its clarity.
On the palate, the attack is ample. The mid-palate is full, fat, voluminous, voluptuous, with an interminable finish.
The tannins are smooth, silky and elegant, and the balance is perfect. This wine leaves an aromatic return of fruit and freshness.
Clos Fourtet 2000 : A blend of 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Robert Parker was the first to announce an exceptional quality for this vintage. The wines have excellent tannic firmness, a sign of long ageing. This is a powerful, dark-coloured vintage, with a nose that is a mixture of finesse and elegance. The well-melted tannins give way to a round and silky wine.
Clos Fourtet 2001 : Blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. Typical Bordeaux vintage, from a temperate climate. The red wines, born under the sign of freshness, balance and a good tannic structure, will mature in bottle to become models of harmony and finesse. The colour is deep and dense. On the nose, aromas of toast, black cherry jam, blackberries, liquorice and a touch of chocolate. The tannins are well blended, rich, soft and firm, with frank aromas and a slight acidity. Elegant, mineral, perfectly expresses the terroir.
Clos Fourtet 2003 : Blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. The heat wave vintage is exceptional in more ways than one. The harvest, already damaged by the spring frosts, was roasted under a blazing sun. Harvested in mid-August, the grapes showed unprecedented maturity and sugar content. The result is an extraordinary wine, with low acidity but exceptional concentration. The summer heatwave left its mark on the wines as well as on the spirits. Records for earliness, very low yields, red wines rich in colour, alcohol and tannins, bouquets with Mediterranean accents. Dense and deep colour for the vintage. Rare aromatic precision of black cherries, blackberry liqueur and liquorice subtly nuanced with violets. Fleshy and ample on the attack, it describes a soft and sensual curve, the acidity is low. The tannins are dense and silky. The finish is persistent, fresh and mineral.
Clos Fourtet 2004 : A blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. This late harvest offers a wine rich in colour. A wine with a powerful nose. Great freshness and finesse.
