  5. Chateau Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc 2018(Ex Chateau arrival time 4 months)
    Taken from mostly older vines (60+ years), this brings much more intensity and depth to the whole. The breadth of flavour here is staggering and the acid is crystalline and electric. There is some power here and some weight, too, and ... Learn More

  8. Chateau Fieuzal rouge 2018(Ex Chateau arrival time 4 months)
    This feels closed in and confident but is not giving much away. It has a silky texture with firm and bristling tannins - you can feel the latent power, pretty much in line with 2010 or 2016 in terms of its construction. ... Learn More
