Score: 97-98, James Suckling - Fantastic core of dark fruit with blackberries, blueberries, licorice and crushed stones. Full body, beautifully polished tannins and a long and energetic finish. Pinpoint. Superb.
Château Figeac is offered to last year’s buyers @ £1,860.00 IB per case or £930.00 IB per case of six. Once 2015 buyers have been satisfied – We will offer any remaining cases.
In Pomerol, Château La Conseillante, which suckling describes as the “greatest Conseillante of modern times” is offered at £1,860.00 IB per case or £930.00 IB per case of six.
We have a tiny amount of the superb Château Ausone which will be allocated to last year’s buyers...
Château L’Evangile occupies prime Pomerol position as it nestle between’s Cheval Blanc, Pétrus and La Conseillante. We have a few cases available (after satisfying last year’s buyers) which are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis @ £1,062.50 IB per case of six.
Château Leoville Las Cases, which and from a qualitative perspective, sits comfortably with all the first growth and very best right banks. Granted, the price is a little higher than one would have hoped for however, it is difficult not to highly recommend such a superb wine @ £2,100.00 IB per case or £1,050.00 IB per case of six.

From a longstanding favourite, Château Pontet Canet, which has been on meteoric form since 2005 and firmly stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Châteaux Leoville Las Cases, Cos d’Estournel and Ducru Beaucaillou year-in-year-out and in some vintages competing with the First Growths...
We can also offer Château Figeac’s second wine, Petit Figeac @ £222.50 IB per case of six.I understand they have zero crops for 2017 which is a direct result of the recent frost damage.
Château Smith Haut Laffite ‘Rouge’ £935.00 IB per case or £467.50 IB per case of six which is very difficult to recommend given the huge price increase over the 2015 which opened up @ £625.00 IB per case...
