Bordeaux 2014 - Haut Brion & Mission Haut Brion

Domaine Clarence Dillon have released today two of the star wines from 2014: Chateaux Haut Brion (£2320/case) & Mission Haut Brion (£1420/case). These were the last two wines we tried during our time in Bordeaux and what a send-off it was. The Haut Brion is supremely elegant with an incredibly long finish and the Mission Haut Brion showed its inimitable dark, spicy fruit on the nose but it is also made in a very elegant and focused style this year.

Bordeaux 2014 - Wines of Mouton Rothschild

We are pleased to offer today the wines from the Mouton Rothschild stable, including the Grand Vin itself. All the wines are made by the same team and quality is very high across the board. 

We thought the Armailhac shows lovely fruit and balance and at £230 per case, represents good value. The Clerc Milon is also very good but considering the price of £320 per case, we think Armailhac is the better buy.

Marquis d'Angerville

In our opinion, Volnay is the finest red wine appellation in the Cote de Beaune and Marquis d'Angerville is the finest producer of Volnay. The domaine makes wines which somehow combine the ripe and rich dark fruits of the Cote de Beaune with the breed and finesse of the wines of the Cote de Nuits.
