Tasted October 2008: Terrific wine. Comparable to Chasse-Spleen but more elegant and deeper. An Haut-Médoc classic and quintessential Moulis. Only a shade of maturity in the colour, ripe cabernet-driven bouquet, a creamy texture in the mouth but with t...

This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weens...

Of course, the 2001 Gran Reservas from Rioja are, in some cases, just hitting the market and are terrific values. We celebrated with a bottle we bought in the first cou... Read More
Had one of those once in a lifetime days betting the ponies today. With the winnings, i'm probably going to be budgeting up to $1500.00 on some more expensive wines I haven't been able to afford in the $80-$200 range. Any suggestions?

Herbaceous and earthy with notes of blond tobacco, subtly sweetly fruited a bit soft up front, nice purity to the mineral tinged black currant fruit, a bit simple but fullish and savory, slightly dry finish (85-86) Read More
