Had a battle with my wife for Friday diner. Felt happy after. While having a walk after together noticed that everything looks fresher and colors are brighter. Good du Pape as usual. Nothing very special, but very good quality. Will buy more.

We bought this white wine in Montreal with friends. We bought one bottle at $12.85. it was so good that we came back and bought 12 bottles. This wine is absolutely great for the value. A perfect match with seafood, cod, and aperitif. We already have tasted some white wine from South West of France, but this one is the one!!! Bravo M. Osmin.

What a value wine!!! From South West of France, this white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard and Gros Manseng. Very fresh, fruity, lemon, citrus, peach. Very aromatic and refreshing. In fact, you enjoy a glass, and you will come back for the second very easily!! Bravo. Indeed at this price point: This is the right wine to enjoy!

Very light, crisp. A good picnic wine or for lighter fish and shellfish. Fairly long finish. Not sure how it would age. I bought 2 cases to let some grow old. For the money I don't think you could do much better. Conventional scoring I would go 86 or 87.

Very rich and caressing, with lovely plum sauce, melted licorice and cassis aromas and flavors all woven together and backed by ample but velvety tannins. The long, tar-stained finish shows well-integrated grip, while the fruit echoes. Best from 2012 through 2023.

From 70 year old vines located on the right bank of the Serein River, this elegant white is nothing short of inspired. It shows a pure nose of white flowers, green fruit, lemon and oyster shell hints, leading to rich, supple and well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors.

Das einmalige Terroir des CHTEAU DE PERROY schafft die Basis und ist auch gleichzeitig der Garant für einen ausgewogenen, facettenreichen Waadtländer Rotwein der oberen Qualitätsstufe. Die intensiven, reintönigen, reifen Fruchtaromen (Himbeeren, Erdbeeren) und die dezenten Gewürznoten in der Nase erfüllen schon im Bouquet die hohen Erwartungen in diesen Grand Cru. Aber auch im Gaumen und im Finale weiss dieser Pinot von CHTEAU DE PERROY durch seine zugängliche Textur und durch seine fruchtige Struktur zu überzeugen.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier displays much more kirsch, smoke, licorice and lavender. The 100% stem inclusion has also given the wine a sort of bouquet garni notion in the aromas and flavors. It is full-bodied, much more evolved and forward than the 2010, and a good candidate for drinking over the next 10andndash;15+ years.

Dense purple-colored, the grapy, young and unevolved but promising 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier has a stunning nose of creme de cassis and raspberry liqueur intermixed with ground pepper, roasted Provencal herbs in addition to spice box and graphite. Full-bodied with terrific fruit intensity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel that stains the palate, and plenty of acidity and tannin, this is built for the long haul. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

Complex aromatics of garrigue, lavender, kirsch, raspberry and earth soar from the surprisingly evolved 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier. Made from an interesting blend of 82% Grenache, 15% old vine Cinsault and 3% Syrah, half aged in ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

"A breathtaking combination of dried flowers and minerals, with dark fruits such as currants and blackberries. Full-bodied, with fabulous fruit concentration, yet its compacted. Velvety tannins. So much fruit and beauty. It's the quality of the tannins that are magic. It is the famous 1959 all over again. Amazing...100" JS 2/12 "A blend of 91.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.7% Merlot with just under 14% natural alcohol, the 2009 Latour is basically a clone of the super 2003, only more structured and potentially more massive and long lived. An elixir of momentous proportions, it boasts a dense purple color as well as an extraordinarily flamboyant bouquet of black fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, subtle oak and a notion of wet steel. It hits the palate with a thundering concoction of thick, juicy blue and black fruits, lead pencil shavings and a chalky minerality. Full-bodied, but very fresh with a finish that lasts over a minute, this is one of the most remarkable young wines I have ever tasted...100" WA 2/12 "#47 Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections 2012...A big, powerful wine that sums up the richness of the vintage. It is densely fruity, spicy with an enormous black plum and berry fruit character to go with the acidity. It’s concentrated while still showing such wonderfully pure fruit. The aging potential is immense....99" WE 2/12 "This seems to come full circle, with a blazing iron note and mouthwatering acidity up front leading to intense, vibrant cassis, blackberry and cherry skin flavors that course along, followed by the same vivacious minerality that started things off. The tobacco, ganache and espresso notes seem almost superfluous right now, but they’ll join the fray in due time. The question is, can you wait long enough? Best from 2020 through 2040...99" WS 01/12
