*** 93-95 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 92 Points Wine Spectator ***
With exceptional 92 points, 2011 Cálem Vintage Port is a wine that, according to Kim Marcus, of Wine Spectator, reveals flavours of "black plums, blackberries and cherries" that "vibrate on the palate" with intense notes of "dark chocolate and spices." This Vintage Port suggests a "powerful control", the result of nobles and "structured tannins", extending the finish. According to Kim Marcus, this is a Vintage Port that follows the "traditional style of wines that need time," and recommends drinking it ideally after 2018.

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification
Brilliant, vibrant, with an almost electric precision on both the nose and palate, Ch. Batailley’s 2011 is delicious, even in its youth. It has poise and elegance with lovely fresh blackcurrants on the nose and fine raspberry and blackberry fruit on the palate, mingling harmoniously with an earthy minerality. One to cellar.

Pavillon de Leoville Poyferre, St Julien, 2nd Wine of Chateau Leoville Poyferre
Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré is the 2nd wine of Château Léoville Poyferré, which was recognized as a Second Classified Growth in 1855. Château Léoville Poyferré has been owned and run by Cuvelier family since 1920. The arrival of Didier Cuvelieur at the head of the property in 1979, hailed a new era for the success of the domain and the restoration of Léoville Poyferré to its rightful rank among the great Médoc wines.

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***
Fifty years. A half-century after the legendary 1961 vintage, this year’s wine stood out for its extremely low yields, the result of hail, and, in June, extreme heat. The concentrated result was both beautiful and unexpected, which should herald excellent aging potential.
The opaque blue/purple-colored 2011 Palmer reveals a stunning bouquet of licorice, truffles, camphor, spring flowers, black raspberries and black currants. One of the superstars of the vintage, this brilliant 2011 possesses superb concentration and purity, medium to full body, and remarkable length of close to a minute.

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe
***94 Points -Jeannie Cho Lee***
Opulence meets fresh acidity. Unctuous on the palate and heavier than its classic style with 150gm per litre of residual sugar, but the firm acidity balances the sweetness well. A powerful wine that will age for decades.

Vicchiomaggio Riserva Vigna La Prima
A richly coloured wine showing oaky tones complemented by rich, smoky fruits and a lovely, mellow texture finishing on a sweet, ripe note.
At room temperature with roast meats, sausages and mature cheese.
Price: £39.95 (5 in Stock)
Distinctive fragrant esteva (rockrose) nose, indicative of the substantial Touriga Nacional contribution to the final blend. In the mouth there is a wonderful, pure fruit quality (red cherries and strawberry) denoting the fresh acidity, which underpins the wine's structure and balance. A wine of great finesse and poise.
Cockburn's 2011 Vintage Port pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Roquefort.
""Great nose here with flowers, leaves and a wet earth character. Full body, lightly sweet with a massive finish. This …
