La Soufrandière Pouilly-Vinzelles 2006
Wine Advocate #162 (Dec 2005) The elegance, purity, complexity, and striking beauty of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is something to behold. This is a prodigious example of marrying the power and richness of Napa Cabernet with a sense of restraint, elegance, but tremendous, authoritative flavor intensity. As I said last year, if Chateau Margaux were making wine in Napa, this might be what it would taste like. An extraordinary nose of black currants, chocolate, sweet licorice, and a hint of toast jumps from the glass of this wine, which exhibits superb ripeness, an incredibly well-delineated, full-bodied, opulent palate, and good, uplifting acidity and freshness. This is a stunning tour de force in winemaking and ranks as the finest Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted. It should drink well for 15-20 years.
