Chateau Charmail Haut Medoc 2014
Chateau du Glana Saint-Julien 2014Château 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-Phélan-Ségur Saint Estèphe 2014A 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%).

The wines have considerable ageing potential and are exceptionally long-lived.
Chateau Charmail Haut Medoc 2015Charmail 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.

Château-Malescot-St.-Exupery Margaux 2015
Château-Gazin Pomerol 2015Feminine and seductive, due to the dominance of the Merlot, Château GAZIN's wines can be enjoyed after a few years in the bottle, but usually they are worth laying down for fifteen, twenty years or more. Their sumptuous generosity offers a wide aromatic range of red and black fruit which harmonizes with their intense crimson or garnet red colour. They typically offer hints of plum, chocolate, coffee or liquorice, with aromas of almonds, toast, tobacco and vanilla, and a minty freshness. With maturity they develop a spicy nose, with a hint of truffles, notes of undergrowth, game, fur and leather . The Château Gazin vineyards cover 64.2 acres in a single lot, with 56.8 acres under vines, located on the renowned clay-gravel plateau of Pomerol. The estate can produce up to 100,000 bottles a year. A second AOC Pomerol wine "l’Hospitalet de Gazin", was created in 1986 in order to reserve the best of the harvest for Château Gazin. The grapes are fermented in small cement vats. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels (50% new) according to the Bordeaux tradition: malolactic fermentation in casks, rackings to separate the fine wine from the lees, fining with egg whites and, if necessary, light filtration.
Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2015Showing a menthol, redcurrant bramble note on the nose, it also has a lovely mocha edge from the oak that adds complexity. The palate has a weight of fruit and flesh that so many wines in the Médoc seem to be lacking, while the tannins are fine with a sweetness that really adds to the mouthfeel. Plump, multi-layered fruit is joined by a lovely spicy edge to the creamy oak on the finish.
