Margaux 3me Cru Classe
From the good 1978 vintage, this wine still has a quite dark colour with a moderate amount of age showing
around the rim. The bouquet is a little earthy at first but reveals some complexity. The taste is much better than the bouquet reavealing some typical cassis fruit and medium length finish.
Price: £129.00 (10 in Stock)
Pauillac 5th Growth Classification
A very charming, supple wine that is a delight to drink now, the 1978 Haut-Batailley is a straightforward, effusively fruity wine, with a nice touch of spicy oak, light tannins, and a warm, round finish. Ready now.
Price: £89.00 (4 in Stock)
St Julien 2me Growth Classification
A deep tawny rim with a mahogany core. This has a delightful nose, very good intensity with notes of cooked meats, roasted chestnut, toffee and a touch of marzipan. It smells as if it is from a hot vintage! After five minutes in the glass, it become a little muffled but develops a touch of mint. The palate certainly has more fruit concentration than the 1980, a rounded texture, quite sharp acidity with notes of sour cherry, a touch of leather and a dry, rather gamey, but attenuated finish. Not bad for a 1978

Medoc Mid to high shoulder

Price: £89.00 (3 in Stock)
Clos de L'Oratoire
The 1978 Clos du L'Oratoire has a pale and clearly developed colour. Smells of underbrush and some dark berries. Medium body, good length, and wonderful acidity, little tannins left. Delicious! Scores on elegance rather than power. Fully mature.
