'Bordelais Stardust at a fraction of the usual price...' Jonathan Ray


Dear Affiliate,


Jonathan Ray, resident wine writer and critic for the Spectator Magazine, offers 6 of our declassified wines from the very top Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux Châteaux in today's Spectator Wine Club Offer.             


Our declassified wines are from 'the most celebrated Châteaux in all Bordeaux (and I mean the most celebrated)' and are sold a fraction of the price of their top wines. Included are new vintages of our Saint-Julien and Pauillac which 'readers positively lapped up last time'. Our best-selling Saint-Émilion 2012 and Saint-Estèphe 2011 (which comes in magnums too) and the 'approachable charmer' that is the Margaux 2014. Last but not least, our new declassified Sauternes 2012 which is 'an absolute corker'.


Below are Jonathan Ray's comments on each wine.       


Best wishes,




'The 2012 St. Émilion, from a stellar estate, is comprised almost entirely of Merlot and is velvety soft and supple. But there's character and weight to the wine too and buckets of ripe, juicy fruit. It's a wine with both grace and power, something I would liken to a beautiful, galloping white horse.'

'The 2011 St. Julien is everything that a fine, classically structured claret should be. From one of St. Julien's finest 'Super Seconds', well known for the beautiful pebbles found in its soil, it has an impeccable pedigree and is full of ripe dark fruit, hints of tobacco, leather and spice. Decant it and ask your guests to guess the provenance and price.'


Saint-Estèphe 2011  

'The 2011 St. Estèphe from a fine 3rd Growth estate before and although it was forward and approachable it still had something to give. It's still robust, but its ripe damson, cherry and plum fruit has come to the fore and it's heading to its prime. A veritable love heart of a wine.'

'The 2014 Margaux is a gloriously, precociously, mouth-fillingly approachable charmer, a smooth, succulent blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sichel family, famous for its association with Châteaux Angludet and Palmer.

'The 2014 Pauillac is a fine successor to the 2012 that readers positively lapped up last time. In fact, I think they bought the lot. Wonderfully stylish and accessible, this is from one of Pauillac's most famous estates (and about a twentieth the price of its grand vin). Like a faun, it tantalises ethereally.

Sauternes 2012




'Finally, the marvellously complex 2012 Sauternes, from the region's most famous property of all. It might not boast the profound flavours of the grand vin, but at this price it's an absolute corker.'
