New Bowes Wine Broking Wines

Broking Wines

Victoria and I were at lunch at Vintners Hall yesterday and with the beef main course were served 2002 Château Léoville Poyferré. It was utterly delicious and all the more fascinating since I knew that a case of it was among a tranche of worthies to be made live today on GrapePip.

My (brief) tasting note appears with the wine below, along with details of the other wines. All have been perfectly stored in professional UK facilities since first being shipped to the UK and sold by Bowes Wine to one of our longstanding, Japan-based clients

And do keep returning to browse the site, since there are yet more listings in the pipeline:

2002 Château Léoville Poyferré, St Julien
"A riveting, mature nose that includes a hint of mint to the dark fruit and notes of liquorice and warm spices. This is fully complex and a fascination to smell. The palate is medium weight at the most, but cool, extremely elegant and refined, with a lift of fresh tannin at the rear. A long thing and very satisfying."

2006 Château Giscours, Margaux 
"A sterling wine, delicious to drink already." Gilbert & Gaillard in 2009
And another lot here

2006 Château Pibran, Pauillac
"A good showing." Stephen Tanzer 
And two lots of the 2002 here

2009 Château Beaumont, Haut-Médoc
"...all pleasure in a very luscious way." Jancis Robinson

2009 Château La Tour de Mons, Margaux
"This assertive red delivers bold flavors, with crisp texture, offering bright black cherry and pomegranate notes over firm tannins." The Wine Spectator

2010 Château Capbern Gasqueton, St Estèphe
"...Deliciously fresh and bright. Lots of pleasure."

2012 La Chenade, Lalande-de-Pomerol - two lots
"Ample and layered throughout, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years." Antonio Galloni

2012 Château La Tour de Mons, Margaux
"...this is another sleeper of the vintage and an excellent, possibly outstanding Margaux to drink over the next decade." Robert Parker

2007 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes
"Some miracle has been performed here." Jancis Robinson

2005 Aloxe-Corton, 1er Cru, Les Valozières, Potel

Cannot find a note, but this will be excellent
