Vintage Port (Offer includes Original Barros Box as pictured)
The Barros 2005 vintage port has a very solid, vivid crimson colour and a nose that is rather spirity at first, with a fresh, almost herbal edge to bright raspberry and vinous fruit, in a style that immediately suggests this is a lighter, more fresh style of Port. On the palate there is plenty of sweetness, with cassis and ripe, sweet liquidised cherry, but also a touch of raisin and date-like fruit. A certain silky, vanilla and thick plum underpinning emerges into the finish, but so does some quite grippy tannin and again a slightly spiritous edge in a wine that perhaps will become a little more harmonious with time in bottle.

Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe
This bordeaux has bags of fruit, tannin and acidity, all tied up in an impeccably-balanced, polished package. Sweet cassis fruit is accompanied by a spicy edge and a long, fresh lift. This is very pretty now but ideally wants another five years to really get going, and will easily keep for another five after that.

St Emilion Grand Cru
This is a world-class Bordeaux red from Saint-Emilion. Its class is hinted at by the fact that close neighbours include the illustrious Châteaux of Cheval Blanc, Conseillante and Figeac. This is the sort of wine that is a real find: because the property underperformed under its previous owners, it has gradually been rebuilding its reputation since it was purchased by Olivier Decelle in 2004. Current releases are now revealing what
potential this property has.
a special wine estate this is. In September 2012 the work here was rewarded and Jean Faure became a Grand Cru Classé again.
A very ripe nose with kirsch, plum, a touch of nail varnish and creme de menthe with a lot of toasty new oak.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
*** 93 Points - Robert parker ***
"From another of the properties of cult/boutique winemaker Jonathan Malthus, the 2005 Laforge is largely dominated by its unfiltered, old vine Merlot component. With dark chocolate, raspberry and espresso notes, sweet cassis, loads of earth, spice, and medium to full body, this is an attractive, bigger-than-usual style for Laforge, with some tannins still to resolve. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years." Erobert Parker 2015.

Frome the outstanding 2005 vintage, the 2005 Picard has a very interesting nose of tobacco, cedar, spice and fruit. The palate stands up with high acidity and forest-floor notes. Medium finish should go well with pasta or red meat.
Saint-Estephe is one of the many famous wine-growing areas of Bordeaux. It gives its name to the red wine appellation AOC Saint-Estephe which is situated at the northern end of the Haut-Medoc region on the gravelly western shores of the Gironde estuary. The wines from Saint-Estephe are richly coloured and deeply flavored, and are known for their longevity.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
92 Points - Wine Spectator
Good medium ruby. Lively aromas of wild blackberry, minerals and violet (this has 40% cabernet franc); smells austere. Then sweet, bright and penetrating, with lovely energy and minerality to the dark berry flavors. A very ripe wine that finishes with palate-coating tannins and very good thrust. Consulting enologist Stephane Derenoncourt predicts that this will go truffley with a decade of cellaring.
Château Tertre Daugay is distinguished by its elevated situation, on a promontory, or ‘tertre’, with far-reaching views over the Dordogne valley. In the Middle Ages, the hill site served as a ‘tertre du guet’, or lookout mound, and it is to this that the Château owes its name.

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe (in Yquem Case)
*** 97 Points - e robert Parker ***
the 2005 Chateau d’Yquem delivers a similar performance as last year. Lucid in colour, the bouquet is detailed with very pure honey, vanilla and almond scents, still a little new oak to be fully assimilated but demonstrating superb focus. The palate is virtually identical to last year's bottle: exquisite balance and perfectly judged acidity, but perhaps just gaining a little richness and viscosity over the last 12 months. There is an appealing completeness to this Yquem and whilst I would not place it amongst the likes of 2001 or 2009, it comfortably sits just behind.

Chateau de la Font du Loup
The 2005 Chateau de la Font du Loup opened up delightfully on the 2nd night with loads of liquorice, tobacco and leather around a sweet fruit core. Tannins had melted away and left a deliciously full bodied wine that gives me hope for some good ageing potential.
