Chateau Charmail Haut Medoc 2014 750ml
Chateau du Glana Saint-Julien 2014 750mlChâteau Du Glana is located on the Route des Grands Vins running parallel to the Gironde estuary, between the towns of Beychevelle and Saint-Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. Château Du Glana was constructed in 1870 by Mr Nadeau, the city of Blaye's architect, for Mr Cayx. At about this time, a small (5 hectares) vineyard of gravelly soil was consolidated thanks to the purchase of several plots of land from neighbouring Château Saint-Pierre. After several other owners, Mr Gabriel Meffre bought Château Du Glana in 1961. He increased the vineyard to 43 hectares in the following years by acquiring several plots belonging to third growth Château Lagrange. Helped by his young sons Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. They are motivated by a major ambition: to achieve the estate's full potential. Surrounded by some of finest great growths in the Médoc, Château Du Glana has made tremendous strides in quality since 1999. Much thought has gone into making improvements over the past several years and the vineyard has been entirely renovated. Château Du Glana produces modern elegant wines of character reflecting the estate's superb terroir. The estate's completely restored buildings (vat room, grape reception area, ageing cellar, offices, and reception room), the immense care taken in the vineyard, and precious winemaking advice from Professor Denis Dubourdieu provide a sound equilibrium between modern methods and respect for tradition. Château Du Glana is thus a well-balanced, velvety, and complex wine enjoyable young, but also with excellent ageing potential (over ten years).
Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2014 750mlChâteau Meyney's vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.
Château-Phélan-Ségur Saint Estèphe 2014 750mlA new vat room with small volumes of 40 to 60 hectolitres allowed extension of the selection work started in the vineyard. Precision viticulture was carried out through, among others, an approach to the vigour of the vine. The 2014 blend was very strongly influenced by Cabernet Sauvignon (64%).
Chateau Branaire Ducru Saint Julien 2014 750ml
Château-La-Croix-de-Beaucaillou Saint Julien 2014 750mlMost of the vineyards, from the greatest to the more modest ones, now produce a second growth. It is therefore essential to consider the soil's possibilities as well as the quality requirements of the wine owner. Indeed, the quality level of the second wine is directly derived from the first of these elements. Croix Beaucaillou, like a first growth, is therefore submitted to careful selection. Most of the wines coming from the plots of young vineyard as well as the lesser batches will incorporate the third growth which will be sold or... drunk at the chateau. Croix de Beaucaillou is thus subjected to a reasoned blending aimed at producing a wine which will of course reveal its assets earlier than Ducru B but also the characteristics of a great Saint Julien: elegance, finesse and of course its ability to age. It is worth noting that this wine is far superior to the connotation of 'second wine'. It is a great, noble wine, which we are sure will play a prominent role in the Saint-Julien appellation. La Croix de Beaucaillou has been bottled on the property since 1995

Chateau Charmail Haut Medoc 2015 750mlCharmail is on the banks of the Gironde River, which makes for milder temperatures and shelters it from really hard frosts in the winter, which can have disastrous effects on the vines. From the property we enjoy a truly magnificent view. The vineyard is made up of one single plot, which extends right to the water's edge. On some mornings, sunrise can be quite magical as the first light plays on the water the mist and the vines. “An ocean of vines coursing into the river; it's an amazing spectacle!” B. d’Halluin The estate is also ideally located on rolling slopes facing south, which contributes to grape ripening, while the vines are often exposed to light winds, which keeps fresh air circulating around their leaves and the fruit. History The name of the estate comes from its 16th century origins, when the Trevey de Charmail family settled in the Medoc. The property’s reputation really began to be known from the beginning of the 18th century. Since then vines have always been cultivated here. The strength of our terroir today comes from this history and the Medoc traditions. 1982 Olivier Sèze took over operations in 1982. In a few years, with his vision and thoroughness he managed to impose a distinct style of winemaking here and made Charmail one of the most valued wines bearing the Haut Medoc label. Vintage after vintage for nearly 30 years, he has made superbly well-balanced wines. 2008 Bernard d’Halluin, a guy from Lille in northern France, who was fed Bordeaux wine in his baby’s bottle made his dream come true of buying a wine estate. While looking for a property in the Bordeaux area, he fell in love with Charmail. Both he and Olivier share the same passion and complement each other admirably in the daily running of the estate. When the estate changed hands, new ambitions came to Charmail, such as enlarging the vineyard: 6 hectares (15 acres) were bought back in 2010 returning the vineyard to its original size. New buildings were also brought into use and new objectives were set for the work in the vines, while initiatives were taken to really promote Charmail wines at exhibitions and tastings.
