More redux, light grassy top note, little sweet toasty spice, plummy, spicy with a hint of sweet spices and a suggestion of pepper. Soft on the palate and loose, aromatic in the mouth. Nice violet, mulberry fruit. Perfumed up front then not a huge finish, juicy on the back end. 85pts

92 points and a "Smart Buy," Wine Spectator: "Quite toasty, with cocoa powder and espresso notes up front, followed by muscular macerated currant and fig fruit flavors mingling with a maduro tobacco hint. The long, fleshy finish has a nice graphite edge lurking underneath. Needs to settle in, but should age nicely. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made." (06/09)

This lovely chardonnay has a complex nose consisting of honeycomb, tropical fruit, gardenia, spice, orange, and caramel. On the palate, these aromas are confirmed with a pleasing acidity, and a long finish.

Farbe: Tiefrot und sehr intensiv. Nase: ausdrucksstarke Noten von schwarzen Früchten, rotem Pfeffer und bitterer Schokolade. Im Gaumen samtig und gut ausbalancierte Tannine mit einer guten Struktur und einem langen Finish.

Glänzendes Gelbgold mit hellgrünem Schimmer. In der Nase süssliche Zitrusaromen, wie von Mandarine. Elegant und konzentriert im Geschmack, reichhaltig durch feine Cremigkeit, aber doch frisch durch eine knackige Säure. Langer und gefälliger Abgang, während dem weitere Zitrusaromen zum Vorschein treten.

The 2010 Cuvee Alexandre was #68 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2012. The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning six levels. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, avoiding the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavours of the wine.

With dark-berry aromas and pointed toughness, this is a solid wine with creamy oak, some stickiness and a lactic element. Flavors of herbal dark fruits and minty oak lead to a dry, minty, hot and spicy finish with more than enough residual oak flavor.
