Profiles don't get much higher in Bordeaux than that of Christian Moueix, whose company has been the management and marketing marvel behind Petrus, one of the world's most expensive wines, based in the commune of Pomerol. Moueix also owns the acclaimed Dominus in Napa Valley. This is a ripe offering, with plum-jam and mocha flavours answered by refreshing acidity and tannic backbone. Drink it over the next four years.
