2014 Château Carbonnieux Graves Pessac‑Léognan Blanc

The Château Carbonnieux Blanc 2014 has a pretty nose in the making: precise apple blossom and blackcurrant leaf aromas that gently waft from the glass. The palate is crisp on the entry, the acidity not as shrill as some of its peers, thus rendering it a more "languid" Pessac-Léognan. There is already a very elegant, gravelly finish that lingers in the mouth–a very promising Carbonnieux Blanc that may merit a higher score after bottling. Drink 2018-2032. Rated (90-92).- Neil Martin, Wine Advocate, Issue 218 April, 2015.

2015 Château Marjosse Bordeaux Rouge

Pierre Lurton's 2015 Marjosse is a big, bold wine packed with black cherry, tobacco, chocolate, smoke, leather and licorice. This dark, brooding wine should drink nicely upon release. There is plenty going on! Tasted April 2016. Rated (87-89). - Antonio Galloni, vinousmedia.com, April, 2016

2016 Château Marjosse Bordeaux Blanc

The 2016 Marjosse Blanc is terrific in this vintage, as it has a bit more depth and richness than is often the case. Green pear, lemon confit, flowers and mint notes are bright and beautifully delineated, while the 10% Muscadelle adds a distinctive aromatic profile. Best of all, it should be superb value. Drink 2017-2019. Rated 89. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, April, 2017

2015 Bordeaux Rouge Instant Bécot

Another winner from the 2015 vintage. Instant Bécot is overseen by the same wine producing team as the Saint-Émilion 1er Grand Cru Classé Château Beau-Séjour Bécot. Produce of 84% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec from vineyards planted to clay and limestone soils south and east of Saint-Émilion; aromas of fleshy ripe Merlot apparent (fleshier still with some aeration), with nuance of dried cherries, cherry pit and earth tones; slippery smooth on the tongue with gentle tannins that give structure and carry the typical Merlot flavors suggestive of ripe cherry long on the finish. Brilliant value in high quality everyday red Bordeaux.

2016 Château Roquefort Bordeaux Rouge

Produce of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit of vines on average about 30 years old and planted to chalky clay soils in the Bordeaux countryside southeast of Saint-Émilion; attractive ruby in color with aromas suggestive of spiced plum, cherry, red berries and woodsmoke; polished, gently structured on tongue, with bursting ripe berry flavors and ripe round tannins providing the gentlest astringency; all in all, a brilliant choice for everyday claret-styled wine.
