Chateau d’Agassac 2000 Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc, France
Chateau d’Agassac is located in the Haut-Medoc and dates back to the 13th century. This is the top wine from the estate and achieved Cru Bourgeois status in 2000. The grapes are picked from their oldest vines and with the use of both old and new French oak this is a very smart and sophisticated wine. Wine Spectator put this wine in their top 100 wines in 2004, and it has only got better with age!

This is a perfect example of mature claret. Eloquent bouquet of blackcurrant, mint, dried tobacco leaf, mushroom, leather and cedar wood. The palate is medium bodied with incredibly delicate tannins, a surprising amount of freshness and intensity on the finish.

Waddesdon Pauillac 2015, by Chateau Mouton A.C. Pauillac
£32.50More info & buy After an hour in a decanter our Waddesdon Pauillac awakens from its slumber to reveal a nose of cassis, charred vanilla, cedar, black cherry and cedar. There's evidence of the ripeness this vintage possesses with a plump fruit-forward entry to the palate which is tapered by fine tannins and well balanced acidity. It's clearly Pauillac and true to the 'house' style - yet it's accessible and attractive now and doesn't require a decade patiently waiting in the cellar. Decant for an hour and enjoy this Pauillac with a roast beef.
Chateau Peyre Lebade 2010, A.C. Haut Medoc
£24.95More info & buy After an hour in the decanter this wine reveals a nose of cassis, cigar box, tobacco and graphite. It's developed yet structured and will stand up nicely to some roast beef. The 2010 vintage was considered one of the greatest thanks to warm days and cool nights, and whilst Ch. Peyre Lebade 2010 shows very well now it does possess the ability to cellar for a few years.
