This is very deep and opaque in appearance, with toasty, black-cherry fruit held in check on the nose. The palate is bold and mouthfilling with a great sense of dimension. There is a serious volume of wonderfully ripe fruit yet with a precision peculiar only to great wines. Layer upon layer of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, awesome power and refinement in one glass – a very intoxicating style with a mineral, terroir-driven vein. Very fine indeed and an undoubted star of the vintage. Part of our latest Fine Wine Parcel.
Winemaker and Estate Director Jean-Michel Laporte advised that the harvest took place between 17th and 27th September and that the assemblage was 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. As one has come to expect of the property in recent years, they have turned out one of the successes of the commune. Whilst not a heavyweight, La Conseillante displays luscious, attractive fruit, poise and refreshing fruit. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
An amalgam of red fruits and spices greet the palate of this well-honed and multi-faceted Bonnes-Mares. A Pinot with stunning length and breadth. Pure and driven with exotic notes combining with dark fruits and oriental spices. Layered and complex. Drink 2012 - 2016. Part of our latest Fine Wine Parcel.
From a parcel of 40-year-old vines in this superb 1er Cru, which borders Musigny, this is better than many Grands Crus. With a lifted and heady nose of rosemary, lavender, crushed raspberry and vanilla, the palate is concentrated, with great balance, texture and length. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
