Cellar/Tasting Notes "A blend of barrels taken by Nicolas Tari. A total of 46 barrels produced. This sample taken before any racking has taken place although there will probably be one in May (instead since the 2004 vintage, the wine rests upon its lees with batonnage dependent upon each barrel.) A more Semillon based..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel, Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich, oozing with sweet ripe fruit, this s like liquid candy."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The Sigalas Rabaud was sensational out of barrel and served blind, the wine does nothing to dispel my initial optimism that this is the apogee for the estate – so far. It is bestowed with an intense bouquet of quince, orange zest and almond with a lighter touch of honey compared to its peers...
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is initially very muted on the nose, but it unfurls seductively with subtle, perfumed aromas of lime leaf, white peach, fresh apricot and touches of white flowers: very pretty and well defined. The palate is beautifully balanced, so pure and succinct with wonderful precision towards the..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The minerality and stoniness really comes through on the nose of this Rieussec, more than the 2007. The palate is very well balanced with superb acidity, real tension, steely with great precision with notes of apricot, white peach and honey on the beautifully defined finish. Probably the best..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The Chateau Coutet 2007 has a very intense bouquet with lemon curd and orange blossom mixed with clear honey. There is impressive precision here, almost crystalline. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine viscous entry, great weight and intensity with racy acidity. There is also much tension..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Resplendent in its new shiny gold label, Krug is a majestic Champagne. Its velvet texture, dominated by mature flavors, is toasty and rich, dense and complex. In the mouth, its beautiful roasted almond, spice and ripe pears all balance impressively. Could the wine be getting even better? No..
Cellar/Tasting Notes The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice. With good length and unctuous on the finish, this Guiraud is impossible to ignore.
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A very subtle hint of oak sets off notes of spice, citrus peel, pear, acacia and tidal pool aromas. There is excellent size and weight to the impressively intense, rich and full-bodied mineral-infused flavors that possess fine detail on the almost painfully intense, tangy and lemony finish. This..
