"The 2013(40% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 30% Mourvedre aged 12 months in concrete tank) has more minerality and dark fruit than the straight Côtes du Rhône, with pretty kirsch, blueberry, ground herbs and licorice nuances all emerging from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, pure, fresh and possessing the hallmark elegance and seamlessness of this estate"
"(aged in 35% new oak for 22 months): Bright, dark red. Cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate aromas are slightly inky and high- toned in a positive way. A structured wine than the Rhône blend, this wine finishes classically dry and persistent."
"Deep purple red. Dark fruit expression of blackberry and plum, complexed with savoury French oak. Full bodied and generous with excellent depth of blackberry fruit, supported by the tannin structure."
"Medium-high depth wine, ruby red colour with roof tile rim. Powerful on the nose with primary aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by complex spicy and balsamic notes and a slight touch of vanilla. Balanced on the palate, it is a round and unctuous wine with ripe and sweet tannins, providing the wine with a long aftertaste: an elegant Rioja classic."
"It has an uncomplicated, fresh bouquet with brambly red berry fruit with a touch of wilted rose petal, though it does not deliver the concentration of recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, well-judged acidity and a harmonious, elegant finish."
"A blend of 85% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Vaccarese, is perfumed and classic on the nose and possesses lots of berry fruits, flowers, lavender and big minerality. Medium-bodied, focused, straight and closed, with the tannins front and center "
"Medium light cherry red color. Aromas of perfectly ripe red cherry fruit intermingled with raspberry. In the mouth the red fruits carry over along with a bit of cinnamon spice. The usual forest floor notes are muted. The tannins are less obvious than usual, lending a silkiness to the wine. The finish is long with the pretty fruit remaining focused throughout. It has just enough acidity to keep it bright without veering into tartness."
"This special Aligoté is well structured, with hints of peaches. The acidity is light, this wine is very fresh and lively, not too tannic. It goes well with white cold dishes, charcuterie, terrine or as an aperitif."
"From Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in the cooler, southern reaches of the Napa Valley, this dry white exudes the time it spent in oak cask and barrel, providing a woody, sweet vanilla touch to the nose and palate. Fig and lemon rind come to the fore on the finish, accenting a medium body and length."
"Apricot pit, lime zest and clove on the nose. The delicate nectarine fruit and creamy texture is held aloft by nutmeg and mineral salts. An element of slate provides spice on the enticing finish of this bright, lively wine."
"The slightest hint of marzipan joins notes of Bosc and Comice pear. A concentrated palate reveals rounded fluidity, bright lemon freshness and layers of earthy, green flavors that are reminiscent of pear peel. The finish is clean."
"This wine is beautifully complex with aromas and flavors of pineapple, guava, honeydew and lime zest, as well as secondary notes of toasted almond macaroon, cinnamon and sugar cookies. On the palate, it is plush and mouthfilling, flowing to a long, layered finish."
"A lovely, creamy white, with vibrant acidity and a streak of smoky mineral driving the flavors of melon, Marcona almond, Meyer lemon, white peach and orchard blossom. Shows good definition and complexity, yet remains lithe and mouthwatering overall. Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana, Picolit."
"A nose that has a lot of complexity with aromas of white fruits, citrus, dried fruit, white flowers, brioche and honey Flowers ventilation. Rich material recorded by a fine and refreshing bubble offers a well-balanced wine."
"Lemon butter suffused with chalk and married with juicy apple and pear. A hint of salted, herbed veal or chicken stock serves for meaty savor. There is an admirable balance between richness and levity here."
"A rich and effervescent rosé (70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir). There are delicate notes of wild red cherry and fresh strawberry tops, which sharply unfurls with richly concentrated flavors of ripe strawberries and candied cherry. "
"A core of ground spice mixing with flavors of whole-grain toast, pear tart, hazelnut and lemon zest in this well cut Champagne, which is finely meshed, offering an airy mousse that leads to the refined, lingering finish."
