A superb, Merlot rich claret from a top vintage that nearly every year wins Gold. It’s from Saint Emilion’s often overlooked satellite, Puisseguin, and offers acres of rich plum and blackcurrant intensity. Delicious now or cellar.

A fine claret that most years scoops a Gold – this should be no problem for a vintage as good as 2016. Vieux Château Guibeau was the first property Tony Laithwaite ever bought from, so it has a special place in his heart. The wine was the 1966, purchased from the estate’s founder, Henri Bourlon, and we’ve bought 50 vintages since. In those early days, Henri (well ahead of his time) was the first to show Tony that a wine’s quality was as much to do with the passion and skill of the winemaker as the quality of the soil. Tony has remained great friends with the family and today buys wine from Henri’s granddaughter Brigitte. Old vines, meticulous winemaking, this well structured claret makes a fine partner to roast beef. Decant early or cellar.
