"2009 Tour Seran is the best wine I have ever tasted from this property" - Robert Parker.
Château Tour Seran is a top notch cru bourgeois, one of the best we have come across. It shows an impressive structure, an intense nose of blackcurrant and a hint of mint.

|What experts say|
89-91/100 "This fat, opulent 2009 La Tour Seran is the best wine I have ever tasted from this property. Its dense purple color is accompanied by lots of blackberry fruit, cassis, and floral notes. Layered and unctuously textured, it is a total thrill to drink. Enjoy it over the next decade."

|91/100 "Very enticing, with lovely mocha and vanilla aromas giving way to fleshy, mouthfilling raspberry, cassis and plum sauce notes. Very suave on the finish, with the toasty edge showing for now, but plenty of fruit to soak that up after modest cellaring."|
Château de By 2010 is the typical simple Médoc made during a great vintage: a nose of black berry jam with a minty touch and a supple palate with well integrated tannins. Finish is surprisingly long for this category of wine, reflecting the perfect conditions of the 2010 vintage - which is already a myth in Bordeaux. A simple but well-made Médoc for...
An absolute beast! - Château Haut-Condissas has become, over the years, an iconic "Vin de Garage" - known for tiny quantity and tiny yield - offering amazing concentration of flavours. Partly made of old vines, it boasts extraordinary aromas of black cherry, red berries and cedar wood. Wine is huge on the palate, with a velvety structure and spicy,...
