Nina scored this wine: 98/100

That was an amazing find! The grapes are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté. Vintage-dated Crémant de Bourgogne is relatively rare in our market. Dry, very fresh and balanced. Nice citrus acidity, orange, apple,little bit of minerality with nutty dough. Very flavorful, with gentle mousse, small, long lived straight bubbles. Nice citrusy finish.

Outstanding wine! This Margaux is my favorite! Dark ruby red in the glass. Exceptional aromas of dark fruit, cherries,spices. Complex flavors, of dark berries, graphite, pepper, leather and oak. Dry, full bodied with wonderful tannins, balanced acidity, lovely texture. Long finish full of flavors with coffee and berries.

Amazing, fruity, rich Zinfandel! Spends 12 months in both French and American oak. Rich cherry color, with pinkish rim. Nose is layered with berries aromas. Loaded with berry fruit, pepper, spice, and earth characteristics. Silky smooth, great balance of tannins and acidity. Nice juicy finish. And for pairing-of course it will be great with barbecue, ribs, pork, lamb. Cheers!

This wine spent a few years in our cellar. Needs decanting. There was a lot of sediment on the bottle's shoulders. Beautiful wine! Deep garnet color, opaque in the glass. Dry berries and cooked fruit on the nose. On the palate dry, full bodied, very big wine! Good, soft tannins. Lot's of cherries, jam, spices, oak, cranberry, raspberry. Long finish with raisin and spicy notes. Amazing!!! It's great now,can age more.

Very elegant aged Bordeaux. A pleasure to drink. Garnet in the glass,dark red core with brownish rim. Beautiful, deep nose offers notes of cassis, dried fruit, leather, black pepper. The palate is dry, medium bodied with a firm structure from very balanced tannins and fresh acidity. Flavors of the nose replaying on the palate dark berries, dried cherries, herbal notes, berry pie. The finish is lovely and long. exciting because of its age.
