The Vintage Years Wine Gift Box
For those with a penchant for properly aged claret, here are three vintages with over fifteen years of maturity and finesse.
2009 Le Marquis de Calon Segur, St.Estèphe
"50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. The second wine of the Medoc's most northerly classed growth, Château Calon-Ségur, this approachable Saint-Estèphe is a great introduction to the Grand Vin. The estate's vineyards cover 74 hectares of land located to the north of the village of Saint-Estèphe, and grow on 5 metre deep gravel beds mixed with varying amounts of sand, limestone and clay. The grapes were picked by hand, and then fermented for 21 days. Prior to bottling the wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new. Mid crimson. Lots of richness and breadth but with the mineral undertow of a fine St Estèphe. A Good Buy! Lots of life here. Drink 2014-2024."
17 points, Jancis Robinson MW
2005 Château Haut-Bergey, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
One of our best finds from this small, Right Bank chateau doing something truly delicious with one of the best vintages Bordeaux has enjoyed over the last twenty years. A mature, cabernet sauvignon-led blend with all the classic Graves characteristics to delight the Bordeaux enthusiast.
"One of the finest under-the-radar estates in Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergeys 2005 (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) offers up aromas of scorched earth, wet stones, burning embers, charcoal, and copious black currant and cherry fruit. The sumptuous bouquet is accompanied by a full-bodied wine displaying dazzling purity, sweet tannin, and a long, opulent finish. This beauty will be drinkable at a relatively early age for a 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
2006 Château Branaire Ducru, Cru Classé Saint Julien
"Good lift. Very fluid and juicy. More charm than most 2006 St-Juliens. Racy and stony. Good finish and persistence." Drink 2015-2030, 17 pts., Jancis Robinson
