Lovely nose of bing cherries and violets. Red fruit - red currant, cherries. What strikes me is that it is really smooth and has a nice balance of everything... the fruit, a little wood, a bit tannic, a bit of heat. The finish had a taste of bacon f...

I am using these dates based on the Illinois tax stamp of 15 cents. We ran across an old crate marked Still Wine Sauternes F. Chauvenet Negociant A Margaux (Gridone) France. It was imported by Corllion New York. Bottles intact. We have no wine knowledge..so researching this was confusing. I understand the region form where the wine came from... Read More
The Clos Bourbon 2005 Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux was delightful. It exhibits a wonderful nose with notes of plum and pepper, and a mellow fruitiness. The wine tasted every bit as good as its flavor and was very smooth and satisfying to the pallette. I've always been a huge fan of bordeaux wines and this bottle met or exceeded every expectati...
