Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2008 Barolo Cannubi sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit, flowers, subtle French oak, mint, licorice and spices. This is an especially pliant, generous 2008 laced with expressive fruit and fabulous overall balance. The south-facing Cannubi yields a juicier more fruit-driven..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Beautiful aromas of orange zest are followed by gingerbread, caramel and crème brûlée flavors. This is a beautiful, rich, smoothly dense wine with a core of botrytis, spice and vivid fresh citrus acidity."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Shows dried pineapple, honey, pear, caramel and piecrust aromas. Full-bodied and very sweet, with spice, coconut, tropical fruit and apple tart flavors. Long and dense, yet lively. Best after 2013."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Barolo Colonnello is a determined, confident wine with a rich, succulent style and ripe aromas of blackberry, spice, sweet vanilla and polished black stone. The chewy mouthfeel also shows a precise stylistic choice and “the colonel” is richly opulent and enduring on the finish"
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Elegant acacia blossom, lemon zest, stone and pain grille suffused nose... excellent intensity... lovely depth on the mouth coating and impressively persistent finish... a wine of class and grace."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Pure and expressive, offering raspberry, red currant and wild berry aromas and flavors, mingled with mineral and spice. Elegant and well-toned, with intensity and drive. The tannins add support and length to the berry and spice aftertaste."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "One of the old, historic vineyards in St.-Emilion, owned by a family that goes back to the 1400s, this wine has gone from strength to strength over the last decade. Cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare in 2009, during a harvest that took place between September 29 and October 9, the final blend..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is the finest Bechevelle since the 1982. The opaque purple-hued 2009 displays beautiful floral notes intermixed with notions of black raspberries and creme de cassis. The fruit hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied richness, and the wine possesses sweet, velvety tannins, stunning..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is quite ripe with its earthy and distinctly sauvage nose of dark berry fruit, plum and violet aromas. There is excellent volume to the very rich and textured large-scaled flavors that possess an impressively persistent, complex, velvety and mouth coating finish. This is well-balanced and..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "…very good richness to the relatively forward and supple middle weight flavors where the supporting tannins possess good phenolic maturity… accessible mid-palate and very firm finish.”
