Cellar/Tasting Notes "... it reveals gorgeous textural finesse and fabulous overall balance. The 2010 floats on the palate with an effortless expression of fruit that is truly remarkable. Deep layers of spices wrap around the sensual finish. This is another fabulous wine from Bruno Clair." (Antonio Galloni)
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is an enormously ripe, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. It has all the hallmarks of the modern cult style, from focused blackberry, cassis and spicy chocolate flavors and profoundly ripe, sweet tannins to the balancing acidity and oak elaboration that adds that extra touch of richness ..."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Dense, bold and beautiful, with notes of plush cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, cola and dried rosemary. Polished, with a dusty, silky feel to the long finish."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "It could be easy, after tasting the monumental 2005, to dismiss the 2006 Troplong Mondot, but donít be so foolish.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2008 Barolo Cicala is beautifully focused and vibrant from start to finish. It boasts fabulous energy and sheer tension in its ripe red berries, spices, crushed flowers and mint. All the elements come together beautifully in this pure, delineated Barolo.
