Chateau Clerc Milon 2005, Grand Cru Classe Pauillac£135.00 Buy An exceptional vintage for Pauillac. Intense claret hues from the glass. Notes of bramble, leather, coffee bean, liquorice and pencil lead are dominant. The tannins are fine and well integrated throughout the wine. Expect notes of mushroom, game and a hint of spice to bring up the rear on the finish. Drinking fabulously now but will definitely reward further cellaring.
Moulin de Duhart 2016, A.C Pauillac (Three Bottle Case)
£116.85Buy Beautiful dark ruby with no purple edge. The nose is fresh with red fruit, toasted spice, pencil shavings, cinnamon, warm slate and blackcurrant. The oak is well-integrated. The palate is pleasant, soft and elegant with layers of fruit and spice. The tannins remain silky smooth and round. Excellent length, very much in the classic style of Duhart’s terroir. Moulin de Duhart 2016 isn't one of those wines that shows everything it has upfront, it slowly reveals its complexity throughout the course of the evening. Classically styled and brilliant value Pauillac - two terms that aren't usually mentioned in the same sentence.
