Château de Camensac probably has one of the finest terroir in Haut-Médoc, right on the border with Saint-Julien. 2010 was a vintage of an exceptional quality, and so is Camensac: a dark colour, flavours of ripe black fruit and black pepper, it is beautifully structured on the palate with subtle tannins and a long finish. An elegant wine which will be loved by women.

|What experts say|
16.5 - "Intense and juicy with a savoury edge. Good balance though a little spindly. Quite rich and velvety textured."
|89-91 - "Possibly the finest Camensac I have tasted, the dense purple-colored 2010 offers loads of fruit (black currants and blackberries) intermixed with subtle notions of smoke, graphite and oak. Medium to full-bodied and rich, it is capable of lasting 15 or more years. It could turn out to be a sleeper of the vintage."|
|16.5 - "Finely expressed Cabernet fruit, good clarity and depth, quite tight now but will expand to fill its Cru Classé potential, a confirmation of the very recent improvement. Drink 2016-26."|
|88 - "This has a brambly, chewy feel, with dark currant and steeped fig notes allied to a smoldering tobacco edge on the finish. Pleasantly rustic, boosted by the oomph of the vintage."|
|15.5 - "For a big pleasure and no complex, this wine offers a lot of freshness."|
90 - "This has weight, dark tannins, very taut and mineral. Spice comes from the wood."
Château Fourcas Dupré's "Number 2" is a great Bordeaux for your home meals. Made from vines coming from specific parcels of the estate, it compares very well to many well-made Médoc wines.

This bottle is not exactly a second wine, but a cuvée coming from parcels located in the Haut-Médoc appellation and elaborated in the winery of the Château by the same team.

Château Haut-Bages Libéral is a 5th classified growth from Pauillac, offering an extremely good value. Half of the vineyard is situated right next to Château Latour, and the other half is just behind Château Pichon Baron! This family estate has been able to maintain a steady quality thanks to heavy investments over the past decade or so. You will surely...
The second wine from Château Tour de Pez is actually pretty close to its older brother in terms of quality. Elaborated with younger vines of the property (25 vs 35 years old) and also aged in oak barrels for 12 months, it still shows a very nice complexity. You will love its fruit flavours and the aromatic, expressive finish. Great catch for a...
Château Tour de Pez is a classic and elegant Cru Bourgeois, widely praised by Bordeaux lovers. Unlike most Saint-Estèphe wines, over half of the estate is planted with Merlot - ensuring smooth tannins, minty aromas and a round structure. The majority of Merlot in this blend makes it ready to drink earlier than its peers from the appellation. Really worth...
Labastide, the second wine of Château Dauzac, is made from younger vines of the domain. This bottle is true silk, offering tasty notes of red fruit, blackberry, grilled nuts and a hint of vanilla.

Château Dauzac is one of the oldest estates in Médoc, with vines first planted since the 12th century! Its reputation has been going through the roof over the past few years following heavy investments in the winery and in the vines, leading to a growing quality. The 2011 offers a classy nose of red fruit (raspberry, cherry), violet and cedar. Palate is...
Pagodes is widely seen as one of the second wines having the closest quality to its big brother's. This 2011 is just impressive, and is now at the beginning of its drinking window. You will love its strong black fruit flavours with complex notes of cedar and sweet spices, but also its balanced structure and the smooth, long finish. Absolutely superb for...
For many Bordeaux connoisseurs, Cos d'Estournel is simply the number one Saint-Estèphe. Probably the greatest success in the region for that vintage, the 2012 is a big, full-bodied and aromatic red. Displaying wonderful aromas of blackcurrant, spices and cinnamon, you will not come across many wines with such concentration and power - and with such a long...
