All En Primeur

People are drawn to the wines of Champagne partly from their association with celebration, success and luxury and partly because these wines, at their best, are some of the most complex to be found. At Tanners we try to offer you a range of the well-known brands, such as Bollinger.

Vintage champagnes are only produced in the best years. They have undergone a longer maturation than their non-vintage counterparts and consequently have more depth and complexity along with more bready flavours and aromas.

For champagne to be specified as ‘vintage’, 100% of the grapes must have been grown in the year on the label. Vintage champagnes spend a minimum of three years on their lees whilst some of the top champagne houses keep their wines on the lees in excess of five, or even ten years, in some cases.

    Set in a magnificent position up on the limestone plateau, Laroque must be one of the most impressive châteaux in the Saint-Emilion region, with the bonus that it is making fabulous wine! Between 1920-1950 it fell into disrepair but is forging back; with David Suire at the helm the critics (and ourselves) love it. Crushed raspberry and strawberry fill the nose, then it is limpid in the glass, juicy and vibrant. The texture is suave, the wine very focused with a bright fresh feel. It has a chalky structure but there's superb balance and a sensual core of fruit. A lovely long, sophisticated style, truly impressive. 5-15+ years.

    Frederic Casteja makes things happen in Bordeaux. “A good campaign is a quick campaign,” he said, while berating neighbours who watch the market and sit on their hands. His tenure at Batailley has improved the quality while keeping the price under control, and his wine is once again a firm recommendation. Almost minty on the nose, over sweet black fruit. Then dense on the palate with a bit of chew, currant on the back palate. Linear and grainy with an oak framework, this feels blocky, gourmand and should keep a bit.

    Beychevelle is a large property (bizarrely with a flock of stone penguins in the garden to the rear!) that has long been pursued by the Chinese market. With that outlet somewhat dried up, we have been lured back and encouraged by recent investment and a step up in quality. The new chai is superb and the wine coming out in 2023 is very impressive. It is most seductive on the nose, ripe currant and cassis with a swirl of raspberry, then dense, rich damson in the mouth, lovely supporting oak and a harmonious finish. Length is excellent, it is bold yet refined with the substance to go further than others. Phillippe Blanc has made a delicious wine worthy of note.

A big job to make but we love it!? he said. They had a long harvest here, from 16th Sept to 7th Oct but the grapes came in healthy and with good yields. Ducru feels very plush this year, good tannins maybe more four-square than some other places but supple enough with tempered oak coming through on the finish.

    Still Red

    Gonzargue Lurton has fashioned a delicious, structured yet ripe and concentrated wine this year. For a second growth Durfort is always good value and the depth and definition of the black fruit is wrapped in chunky, grainy tannins that work well to support the texture here. Biodynamic practices have created a bright, vibrant character, lots of freshness on the finish. A super effort and a Margaux to admire. 5-15 years.

    Appealing, fresh blackberry and currant on the nose that continues to the palate where a framework of toasty oak takes over with a lick of liquorice in behind. Claire Villars-Lurton explained that the tannins here have got silkier from better vine management and stopping pumping-over several vintages back. Ferrière is stylish, has a swish feel to it, and is rather overlooked in Margaux in general - it is a Third growth and Eric Boissenot consults.

    Intoxicating notes of violets and plum leap out of the glass, quickly followed by a dense core of purple fruits, dark chocolate, cherry tobacco and graphite. Medium bodied, with well-integrated tannins, its deceptively smooth with a long finish. A return to form for this underrated estate. 5-15 years.

    An early morning for Jeremie who had been on frost watch since 3.30am and looked tired if relieved. His two sons Adriane and Etienne are soon to join him in the business, maintaining the high standards we know this super little property commands. This vintage is simply delicious, extraordinarily approachable with a great nose and a lush Pomerol feel in the mouth. It's savoury and sweet at the same time, with silky tannins on a pure, plummy character, tempered and soft yet perfectly balance. A brilliant wine that deserves more recognition. 5-15 years.

    It was mentioned, in passing, that the big cruise ships are going to be stopping at Pauillac later this summer. When they do the occupants will see the brand new buildings and facilities that are just being finished including a gravity-fed chai. We suspect this will put Grand Puy Ducasse firmly on the map! Another wine that is on an upward path, the 2023 has a terrific nose with masses of black fruit and hints of tobacco behind, even a touch of polished leather. The tannins are silky and there is power in the texture and body here, balanced and precise oak bring plenty to the party. Should outlive many peers of the same quality.

    We have long been fans of the second wine of Grand-Puy Lacoste, as it is always a very affordable close copy of the grand vin. While it may drink a bit earlier than usual, with its easy going structure in 2023, Lacoste is brimming with fresh, plummy fruit and has a clean, raspberry finish. A very attractive, approachable second. 3-9 years.

    Gorgeous blackberry jelly nose with a touch of spice. Velvety with a complex mix of classic clarety flavours on the palate. Tobacco and cedar are in the background at this stage, but that great GPL structure of long, fine, silky tannins underpin some lush fruit. Restrained in the finish yet very persistent. Length and precision, the hallmarks of another great Pauillac at a decent price. 5-15 years.

    So often 'Gentleman's Claret', this year you'll find a svelte, trimmed wine with lovely curranty notes on the nose, some cedar even, then very swish in the mouth, poised and elegant with layers of fruit and spice. Refined and easy while long in the finish, it has perfect oak and a fluid, fresh feel. Emmeline Borie was very pleased with it, rather more so than with her builders who have started on a new winery but are taxing her patience. "It will be wonderful for your next visit, she said, adding, "hopefully next year!" No need to wait until then for a brilliant wine, however. Buy the 2023.

    Always a dependable 'second', Sarget is typically full of blueberry and blackberry fruit, soft tannins and an easy feel in the mouth. The whole is very complete, well textured and quite lively on the finish. It?s a classic Sarget made to drink quite early yet showing the power of Gruaud in the background. A good pick this vintage to enjoy a bit younger. 3-9 years.

    Super mix of fruit: damson, plum, raspberry and a shot of currant. Soft, round and svelte in the mouth, restrained and mineral with plenty of power but refined tannins and great persistence. Very good length too. Superb focus and definition, a very good to excellent wine. 5-15+ years.

    The second wine of Château Gruaud-Larose is always worth consideration. Initially a little tightly wound but it soon opens up showing aromas of black cherry, plum and spice. On the palate, it exudes hints of liquorice, mocha and more black fruits. Well-structured with evident grippy tannins, this is a more serious wine than the 2022 so will reward further time in your cellar. 3-9 years.

    Superb damson and cassis on the nose with creamy oak behind. This is a seductive wine with richness, layers, complexity in the mouth, that bright finish again over wet stones. The length is prodigious and the wine more accessible and charming than we have seen in the past. There is more Cabernet Franc in the blend than usual (double that of Haut-Brion), and perhaps this has lifted and lightened the whole wine.

    Fruit forward this year with pure black fruit on the nose backed up by nice warm spice and some licorice. The balance is fine, the emphasis on early drinking with that juicy fresh fruit backed by easy, soft tannins. Fronsac, to the west of the major Right Bank areas, still has great terroir and can produce some lovely, expressive wines that are invariably good value. 3-9 years.

    Another lovely nose with sweet fruit, almost creamy, then a burst of currant and mulberry. Fresh on the palate, with a bit more blueberry and purity on the finish. Good Pauillac power, this feels like it will take on more texture and weight with age. Straightforward but looks good value, simply lacks a bit of recognition. 3-9 years.
