    Elegant bouquet of dark cherry on the nose with some subtle spices. On the palate, the acidity is quite high but very well balanced and gives great freshness on the mid palate. The fruits are showing well, with blackcurrant, dark cheeries and blueberries with a second layer of provencal herbs and white pepper. I really like the freshness in this wine. It is joyful, yet has a great presence in the mouth with a solid structure. Soft finish with more spice. QC

    One could spend hours just looking at it. Beautiful golden and orange colour of a youthful wine, starting a long and promising life. With just a gentle swirl for a minute at least, it opens up in the glass and only then you can take a deep smell. Explosion of lemon and orange zest, honey, peach, apricot... so much, it's difficult to recognise them all! The nose is thrilling, it gives you a hint how incredible this wine will be on the palate... The first sip is also overwhelming with flavours and aromas, with more honey, peach, pineapple and then layers of light spices... The sweetness is simply perfectly balanced with the acidity that seems to help the whole structure to stand on the upper part of the mouth. The finish is still in its very early days, but the lasting is luscious, lingering and 'sensual'. I found a stunning feminine touch in this Yquem. Absolutely amazing! QC

    In one word : Woaw! The nose is full of toasted brioche, apples and roasted hazelnut. The bubbles are very "precise" and fine and give elegance and finesse to the well balanced structure. Incredible depth of flavours with a creamy roudness and just the right amount of acidity. What an impressive wine! The concentrated flavours continue through to the mid palate and are bursting into the mouth to an impressive 3 minutes finish. Superb! QC

    From the first smell in the glass, one could tell blind folded, this wine was outstanding! Joh Jos Rieslings are designed to age and I was lucky to witness how they can develop over a 27 years period! A wonderful nose of honey suckle and peach. The mouthfeel is luscious, with a very well integrated sweetness. The acidity is still there and gives even more depth on the back palate. Voluptuous and silky, the wine just keeps lasting in the mouth. The finish is mineral with hints of apricot flavours. Simply Gorgeous! A must have if you can find it! QC

    Opulent nose of strawberries and blueberries. On the palate delicate aromas of raspberries and more strawberries. Silky almost velvety structure with a great depth. A powerful but elegant wine that gives its full potential on the mid palate and finish. Fantastic expression of the Pinot Noir grape with no sour flavours and a lingering ending. 2005 seems to start to open up very nicely now and should give a lot of drinking pleasure over the next decade! One of my nicest Pinot's I had in a while. Well done! QC

    A beautiful nose of hazelnut, toasted wood and vanila. A rich and luscious structure with flavours of pistachios and brioche. The acidity (even though it is a 1999) is lifting the wine on the mid palate giving it a wonderful mouthfeel. Well integrated wood aromas leading to a decadent finish tasting just like a glazed lemon tart... Wonderfully crafted wine! QC

    Deep ruby colour. The nose exhibits black cherries and herbs. On the palate the structure is nicely balanced with a rich but light mid palate and soft tannins. The wine was a little shy at first, but starts to open up after 15 minutes in the glass. Aromas of cocoa and raspberry come forward and the wine becomes silky... Cheval Blanc starts now to show is true side! The finish last for over 1 minute with plenty of rapsberry flavours. QC

    Beautiful golden colour with shades of orange. On the nose, aromas of tropical fruits, lychees and pineapple with a distinctive spicyness. On the palate, it is a well balanced wine. The residual sugar and acidity are perfectly in line. Aromas of caramel, orange zest and candy on the mid palate. The luscious and delicate texture gives a beautiful roundness to the wine. A long finish with hints of citrus fruit. QC

    A friend ask me once if he should purchase some of the Latour 1998. My first answer was no, but after the seller gave him an extra discount on the wine, he thought at this price, there's no harm. So, last night, he kindly brought a bottle for us to try and even though this was not the finest Latour ever made, I have once again realise, that with good company and good food, the first great growths are always (no matter the vintage) simply great wines. The nose was slightly closed at first, developing aromas of blackcurrant, tar, dark chocolate and coffee. The structure is fairly light and silky with tannins still a little dry, but well integrated. Alcohol levels are not overwhelming, but balanced with some acidity on the mid palate. More flavors of blackcurrant, dark cherries and coffee bean. The length is short and probably the major disapointment on this wine, missing the impressive finish of Latour from greater vintages. A wine to enjoy now and for another 3 to 4 years. QC

    On the nose, developed aromas of white flowers and honey. The wine seems to have lost with time its tropical fruit style and aged with rounder aromas. The residual sugar is quite high, but not overly, which gives an enjoyable luscious structure in the mouth. A good presence of acohol on the mid palate, followed by a lasting length of honey and orange flavours. QC
