Cellar/Tasting Notes "An upper register and highly complex nose of green apples, white pear and citrus notes introduces almost painfully intense, pure and impressively powerful big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess an almost aggressive minerality on the palate staining, tension-filled and driving finish...
Cellar/Tasting Notes "I was also impressed by the 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard. Cropped at one ton of fruit per acre (Ramey told me the grapes looked like petits pois from France), and from one of the coldest sites in his portfolio, it exhibits lively notes of lemon oil, lime skins, white peaches and a touch of..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "My favorite wine of this trio is the sensational 2011 Chardonnay which reveals a Batard-Montrachet-like richness and hazelnut creaminess. Made from an Old Wente clone and aged in 80% new oak (which it hides very well), this wine has good acidity and a surprising, rich, intense mouthfeel with lots..
Cellar/Tasting Notes The 2010 Vintage Tunina is an exquisite blend of grape varietals: Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia, Istriana and Picolit.
It has a brilliant straw-yellow colour with golden highlights. Its aroma is intense, full, with enormous elegance and persistence, and with hints of..

Cellar/Tasting Notes "... mineral-inflected lemon peel, menthol and spiced pear aromas…good richness but also fi ne detail to the rich, full and delicious middle weight flavor... mouth coating and balanced finish. This is pretty and complex."
Cellar/Tasting Notes The Beaune Grèves Le Clos Blanc Premier Cru is an unusual rare and rather exotic white wine. It is full, rich and spicy, with broad fruit flavours and exceptional depth offset by notes of almonds, earth and gently toasted oak.
This exceptional wine can be drunk with fish in white sauce,..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A very subtle touch of wood frames very fresh and again, admirably pure aromas of acacia blossom, spiced pear and green apple nuances. There is good volume and mid-palate density to the generous, sappy and seductively textured middle weight flavors that offer fine complexity on the mildly austere..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A wine of great finesse, distinguished and elegant. The colour is pure and bright, with light glints of white gold. The aromas evoke trees in bloom and white flesh fruit, like white peaches. With age, the aromas evolve towards almond and lightly grilled dried fruit. On the palate, there is a..
Cellar/Tasting Notes At maturity, the 2011 Meursault's palate and nose are explosive; a large range of aromas are expressed, such as honey, exotic fruits, butter, hazelnut, grilled almond, yellow fruit, aniseed and toffee
