2006 Bordeaux Fine Wine Mixed Case
The following mixed case will includes one bottle each of;
1 x 2006 Château Langoa Barton, St-Julien 3ème Cru Classé
"Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Langoa Barton has a lifted nose of small dark cherries, blackberry, incense and marmalade - quite showy for Langoa Barton - but there is joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and demonstrating impressive density plus a firm grip. This really coats the mouth in tannin, although it is still balanced. It just needs another 4-5 years in bottle, the stubborn little lady." Drink 2019 - 2035

1 x 2006 Château Lafon Rochet, Saint Estèphe 4ème Cru Classé
"Earthy, autumnal, vegetative notes intermixed with sweet cola, black cherry, and black currant are present in this dense purple-colored wine. Firm tannins are present, but the wine has excellent fruit, depth, and texture."
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
1 x 2006 Château Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac 5ème Cru Classé
"I raved about the 2006 Château Grand Puy-Lacoste when I tasted it from barrel ten years ago. It has evolved a really quite beautiful, very classic Pauillac bouquet with vivacious blackberry, raspberry and wild mint aromas that deftly absorb the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps a more forward "GPL" than other vintages, but there is genuine fineness to the tannin and that backward finish has great precision. There is the substance to suggest that it will be a long-term Left Bank and you could probably broach it after another 3-4 years." Drink 2019-2038

1 x 2006 Château Giscours, Margaux 3ème Cru Classé
"...the aromatics have evolved well, now offering quite plush redcurrant, strawberry and ferrous scents that are nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, savory in the mouth with dried blood, rosemary and sage notes towards the finish. I like the depth here, the cohesion and length. It might not be the most flamboyant recent Giscours, however in the context of the vintage, this is certainly a commendable wine that is beginning to deliver on its promise." Drink 2015-2032

1 x 2006 Château Cantemerle, Haut Médoc 5ème Cru Classé
"The 2006 Cantemerle was the "surprise package" of the blind tasting at Farr Vintners' horizontal. It has a conservative nose with rosemary and undergrowth scents that open nicely in the glass, but retain a sense of classicism. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, lightly spiced red berry fruit, sage and white pepper, quite persistent on the finish, which feels very pure. What an outstanding 2006 Claret - a Cantemerle that punches well above its weight." Drink 2016-2030

1 x 2006 Château Beauregard, Pomerol
"...firm black pepper spice and dark fruits that line the path through the palate. Holding firm for now, the plush fruit should deepen over the next few years and already the woodsmoke edge adds complexity. This is a good wine that will continue to age from here, and has plenty of estate character in terms of balance, elegance and juice." Drink 2020-2028
