A light ruby color with violet hints, this is an elegant and light Pinot Noir. The nose is restrained with delicate notes of raspberries, red cherries and hints of blackcurrants.

CANON 2010

St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France

DE FIEUZAL – 2004

Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France

WS 87 -The wine is a dense red color, with glints of orange. On the nose, the sensation is fresh, with distinct notes of blackcurrant and a fleeting overtone of smokiness. In the mouth the wine is compact and direct, with a clean fresh approach. The tannic structure is clearly present and needs a few more years to deepen and mature.

DUCRU BEAUCAILLLOU – 2009

St.Julien, Bordeaux, France
2nd Growth in 1855
100 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
”The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 years of cellaring and last for 40-50 years. Magnificent!”

PALMER 2011

Margaux Bordeaux, France

3rd Growth Grand Cru in 1855

The opaque blue/purple-colored 2011 Palmer reveals a stunning bouquet of licorice, truffles, camphor, spring flowers, black raspberries and black currants. One of the superstars of the vintage, this brilliant 2011 possesses superb concentration and purity, medium to full body, and remarkable length of close to a minute. A tour de force in winemaking, the Palmer team merits accolades for achieving this level of quality in a more challenging vintage than either 2009 or 2010. The “wine of the vintage” in Margaux, tiny yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare, a final blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a severe selection (only 55% of the production made it into Palmer) are the reasons for this success.
