Platinum Bordeaux Selection Case 

A curated selection of six bottles.  The “Platinum” selection features wines from the best vintages and vineyards.

  • Château Dassault,Grand Cru Classé, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, 2015

A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14-18 months ageing in oak barrels (65% new, 35% one year old)

A very well made wine with precise, spicy/oaky aromas, elegant texture, classical flavours of berries, tobacco and truffles, certainly the most complete wine ever made by this Chateau. The silky tannins suggest that this wine will be for early drinking. Lots of charm, nice weight and balance, good purity and a lovely long, refreshing, focused finish.

“The 2015 Dassault is medium to deep garnet-purple coloured and scented of prunes, cherry cordial and blueberry pie with underlying mincemeat pie and Chinese five spice hints. The full-bodied palate is packed with berry preserves and dried fruits flavours with chewy tannins, finishing just a little firm”

  • Château Angludet, Margaux, Bordeaux, 2015

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot & 10% Petit Verdot, oak aged (1/3rd new) for 12 months.

A high proportion of Merlot gives fragrance and Cabernet offers an impressive structure. A very pretty, intensely floral nose leads onto an engaging palate of great balance. The structure and shape in the mouth is ample but remains fresh, whilst the flavours on the finish linger with great focus.

“Mid crimson. Medium intensity – rather medium in every respect. Sweet and round and charming already. Very Margaux. A little sinewy on the end but the tannins are very well managed. This could be GV so long as you don't need a very long-term wine. Hint of mintiness. Neat finish"

  • Château Chasse Spleen, Moulis-en-Medoc, Bordeaux, 2010

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.

A perennial favourite - always good value. Spicy, plummy fruit on the nose and a generous texture with firm, but ripe, tannins. Rich and round on the palate and satisfyingly long on the finish.

“A beautiful effort from Chasse-Spleen, this dense purple wine exhibits plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit with some licorice, roasted herbs and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and supple, the final blend… has produced a fleshy, succulent style of Chasse-Spleen to drink over the next 15+ years”. 

Rated: 90 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, February 2013

  • Château Cantemerle, Grand Cru Classé, Haut Médoc, Bordeaux, 2009

Blend comprising 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc.

“Readers looking for the more ethereal, elegant side of Bordeaux need search no further than Cantemerle, one of the estates in the very southern end of the Medoc. Dense ruby/purple (nearly opaque), this wine offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, raspberries and black cherries. The wine is ethereal, medium-bodied, and by no means a blockbuster, but long and intellectual. However, the tannins are present, and the wine is certainly capable of putting on weight with time in the bottle. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25+ years”. 

Rated: 91+ points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, December 2011

  • Château Cos Labory, Grand Cru Classé, St Estephe, Bordeaux, 2009

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 50% aged in new French oak barrels.

Situated immediately over the road from Cos d’Estournel on the Cos hill in Saint-Estephe, and Chateau Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac, “Fifth Growth” Cos Labory has a lot to live up to regarding its illustrious neighbours and the prowess of their highly sought after wines.

“Very pretty aromas of sliced plums and blueberries, with hints of mineral, follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fruity finish with hints of vanilla bean and coffee” - James Suckling.

  • Château Lalande Borie, St Julien, Bordeaux, 2009

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc

“The finest wine I have ever tasted from Lalande Borie, the 2009 displays lots of purity along with a boatload of blackcurrant, raspberry, and black cherry fruit, no evidence of wood, broad, rich, deep flavours, and a velvety texture. It should drink well for a decade or more” .

Rated: (88-90) points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2010

Under the same ownership as Ducru-Beaucaillou, the property, since 2019, has been renamed as “Le Petit Ducru” and is now classed as that chateau’s third label. The ‘Grand Vin’ from the same vintage was rated 98 points, but sells for in excess of £200/bottle!
