A Bottle Or Two
I had a glass or two of this last night and must say WOW. A little meat on the nose, it was incredibly smooth in the mouth. It had a nice plum flavor. This was such a well rounded wine I will probably order more if they don't run out. The good news...

I haven't bought a bad bottle yet! My husband and I really enjoy drinking this alone or with a meal. Not too sweet but yummy enough to make you want to take another sip. If you are sharing a bottle with someone, be sure to get two!

I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we bot...

Black berries and cherries integrated with the right amount of spice along with a bit of minerally earth. It seemed a bit closed so it could benefit from two or three more years in the bottle. This wine is a great value and I intend to drink a lot mo...

A lovely nose that blend citrus, lime blossom and apricot notes with machine oil notes. In the mouth this is quite rich yet very acid driven and dry. It's starts of with a rather grapefruity attack that is cut by assertive and mouthwatering mineral ton...

This is a fun easy wine and I try to have a bottle or two around for when I have guests over. Those that do not traditionally like red wine can enjoy this with a meal. Good full flavor in the mouth an excellent wine with lots of different types of me...

I received a complimentary bottle of this when I was staying at the Hotel Lucia in Portland, I remember it being such a good wine, I ordered a second. Not that same night. I think they went to twist cap the next year or two after the 2002 when I found ...

Intensely aromatic showing a bit of toffee, big bold black fruit, spicy notes, bit of sage, sweet black fruit that shows some emerging complexity. Open, juicy, big and pure on the palate, this is packed with black cherry, black berry fruit in a fairly ...

A lovely Barbaresco with solid acidity and a cool, composed character featuring crisp cherry, soil and dried floral aromatics. the wine is medium bodied and fairly elegant with small but precise tannins and a taut backend that leads to a long, sneaky f...

Fantastic superieur with an equally impressive price. I bought this bottle to drink now but would do good with some age. I will probably buy another bottle or two to age. Young Bordeaux aroma of red fruits (cherry and raspberry) and slight touch of tob...

With springtime upon us, wine enthusiasts around the world are looking to squeeze a French vineyard into their European holiday. “Is it possible to catch the spirit of Bordeaux in a couple of days?” With careful planning the answer’s “yes”. I accompanied twelve CEO’s on a corporate two day ‘jolly’, sorry ‘educational visit’ to the vineyards of... Read More
I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/104446 for £16.50. Pouilly-Fume is an appellation created in 1937 [although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans ] for white wines made of the sauvignon blanc grape from seven communes on the east bank of the upper Loire valley around the village o...

My fondest memory may be of a 1990 CdlR vielle vignes which I had in the early noughties. That was a good bottle of wine. My memories since then are, unfortunately, mostly more complex as I've found the wines too often more 'interesting' than blow-my-hair-back delicious. I haven't confidently felt any were worth the tariff for nearly a decade. W... Read More

Anyhow, Peter from WS contacted me this morning for info and I was able to speak with him right after he spoke to Laurent and before the s... Read More
