Château de Chambert Grand Vin 2014 (Cahors)
Produced from the best parcels of this biodynamically run estate, this wine is powerful and very rich.
Vignobles Brumont 2014 (Madiran)
This is the latest release from this Madiran showpiece estate on steep vineyards surrounding a grand chateau.
Jean-Luc Baldès Clos Triguedina Probus Malbec 2008 (Cahors)
There is great power, yet balance here. The wine has firm, rich fruits, with solid dark tannins to go with layers of fresh acidity and a dense texture.
