Special Selection by Esme Johnstone, Co-Founder


I’ve often been asked to recommend a selection of wines, so here goes: a case of three fantastic clarets from 2010 and 2015 which were 10/10 vintages in Bordeaux.


All of these are ready for drinking now and give you a great chance to compare the two vintages over dinner with friends.


Petite Sirène 2015 is the third wine of classed growth Château Giscours, Château Les Moines 2010 is an award-winning wine from northern Medoc and Château Croix-Mouton 2015 is smoky with fine tannins and plenty of red-berry fruits.


If any more encouragement is needed, we're offering a £12 saving for the launch of this case.


I hope you enjoy the wines, and do let me know of any other selections you would like to see.

Petite Sirène de Château Giscours, Bordeaux 2015

"From a corking vintage from Ch. Giscours (the much-loved Third Growth from Margaux) made by the same winemaking team as the Grand Vin. A blend of 70 per cent Merlot and 30 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s richly flavoured and succulent with red and dark berry fruit, whispers of vanilla and spice and a long, mouth-filling finish. It’s an extremely approachable entry level claret with impeccable pedigree and reassuringly accessible price. In short, it’s perfect." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator


Château Croix-Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur 2015

"If there is a better value in Bordeaux wine today, buy it. I’ve looked and it is going to be hard to find." - The Wine Cellar Insider


Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc 2010

"Last tasted in 2015 when I rated it 90/100, this is cellaring very well indeed, still showing that ripeness of fruit that is modern and appealing, but not at the expense of classic Médoc character, a hint of game, cedar and liquorice, a pleasing dose of volatile leading on to a curranty, dry palate, but there's a slick chocolate to the tannins, the 14% alcohol no doubt aiding that generous mouthfeel, into a long finish where the sweet fruit persists." - Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com (previous vintage)
