Chateau Barde Haut 2003 (WS90)
Chateau Barde Haut 2003 Saint- Emilion Grand Cru.
品種：80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
90 points Wine Spectator :
Wonderful aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a very fruity finish. Yummy.
88 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014:
This attractive, fully mature St. Emilion exhibits notes of Christmas fruitcake, licorice, red and black currants, and spice box. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. Drink 2014-2018
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009 波爾多五級莊 RP92/JS91-94
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009
產區 : Pauillac, Bordeaux
分級：波爾多列級5級莊 品種 : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
92 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (199), March 2012:
Probably the finest Haut-Bages Liberal since the 1982, this beautifully rich wine has an inky purple color, a big, sweet kiss of creme de cassis, incense, some background spicy oak and forest floor. Its gorgeous fruit, full-bodied opulence, impressive purity, expansive texture and broad, savory finish make for a terrific wine to drink over the next 25+ years. Drink: 2012 - 2037
91-94 points James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2010:
Currant and mint, with hints of fresh herbs. Lovely complex nose already. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, racy finish. Solid core of beautiful fruit.
Ducru Beaucaillou 2011 波爾多2級莊
Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou 2011
92+ Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014:
The 2011 Ducru Beaucaillou (which normally represents 1/3 to ½ of the entire crop) possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a beautiful nose of sweet creme de cassis, crushed rock and spring flower aromas. This rich, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien is among the most concentrated wines of the Medoc. Moderate tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This beauty will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and keep for two decades. Drink 2017 - 2037.
95 Points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2012:
This isn't quite as good as the 2010 and 2009 Ducrus, but it's not far behind: a concentrated, yet very polished St Julien from the lowest yields ever at the château. Sweet and intense, with hauntingly floral aromas, notes of cassis, plums and currant, fresh acidity and rich, yet silky tannins leading to a bright, refreshing finish. Powerful yet restrained, this is a keeper. 15+ years.
93 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014:
This sweet white is quite oily, with dried-pineapple and mango character. It's full-bodied, very sweet and juicy on finish. Thick and rich. Drink now or hold.
Clos de L'Oratoire 2003 波爾多右岸列級 vivino4.2(112酒評）
Clos de L'Oratoire 2003
分級：Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
產區： Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
品種：80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Chateau Mont Perat 2012 《神之水滴》推介
Chateau Mont Perat 2012
產區: Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux 品種:Blend
Chateau MontPerat葡萄酒是《神之水滴》漫畫中第一支成名的酒款。 《神之水滴》描述如下：這瓶酒好好喝，我不知不覺很喜歡它呢。因為它很有勁道，所以感覺到融在口中的甜味與緊繃的酸味在嘴裡整個散開。那感覺就像“Queen”樂隊的主唱甜美沙啞的聲音，被渾厚的吉他與沈重的鼓聲所包圍.
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004 波爾多五級莊 RP90/JR17+
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007:
Another sleeper of the vintage, this under-priced, beautifully made Pauillac exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, tapenade, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin and low acidity, it is a pure, expressive wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.
17+/20 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005:
Liquid purple, relatively opulent on the nose. Quite deep and trying very hard. Attractive spiciness and no excess of dryness of tannin. Well managed and well balanced. The only reproach one might make is that it is a little mild and low key - but then so is Lafite. Quite a bit of weight. Very vigorous. Very good! Very fine tannins, there in abundance. It's worth remembering that as far as I know none of the merchants who tear round Bordeaux like me tasting wines en primeur taste blind. My note was made, exactly as it appears above (plus typos), on the basis of a sample of whose identity I was entirely ignorant. Drink 2013-20.
Champagne Duval Leroy Brut Reserve NV
Champagne Duval Leroy Brut Reserve NV
品種：Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Duval Leroy is one of the only independent and family owned prestige Champagne houses left in the famous region, and this personal investment in the house's wines results in truly spectacular Champagne's. This non vintage Brut has a wonderful full-bodied nature with a rich, creamy mousse supported with great lemon and lime zest. A delicious effervescence continues on the long and elegant finish.
91 Points Wine Spectator:
A fresh, finely knit version that meshes a silky mousse and delicate acidity with a subtle flavor range, including rich hints of toasted brioche, blackberry, spun honey, lemon zest and smoked almond. A fine aperitif in terms of weight and balance, but in a slightly richer style. Drink now through 2020.
91 Points Wine & Spirits :
This delivers a lot of fresh fruit through the lush feel of its bubbles, bringing scents of raspberry, plum and juicy pear up out of the glass. For all its generosity, the wine follows a clean, crisp line. It’s a fine aperitif to serve with saucisson.
Chateau Giscours 1994 波爾多3級莊美人魚
Chateau Giscours 1994 波爾多3級莊美人魚
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Blend: 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah
#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
94 Wine Spectator : A gorgeous wine, with an interplay of ripe, dripping blackberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors providing the flesh, offset by smoldering charcoal, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes, which provide the angles. The long finish has nice intensity. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,175 cases made.
Winemaker notes: We didn't release Valbelle in 2008 because the wine had been blended into the Gigondas Classique. This is nice to see Valbelle coming back in 2009 with its very specific style. It generates complexity, depth and balance. 2009 Valbelle combines well the tannic power of the vintage with the roundness and the softness always found in Valbelle. Find notes of strawberry, thyme, white pepper and graphite.
Chateau Talbot 1994 波爾多四級莊
Chateau Talbot 1994
This imposing estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453.
Talbot's vines grow in an ideal location bordering an estuary, on some of the region's most highly prized gravel rises which alone produce great wine. Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, and its reputation has been in the hands of experienced managers, and always shown itself to be worthy of its inclusion in the 1855 classification.
Owners of Talbot since the early 20th century, the Cordier family have perpetuation the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.
Chateau Belgrave 2010 (波爾多5級莊）
Chateau Belgrave 2010
91 Points Wine Spectator: Ripe and fleshy, with lots of roasted vanilla bean and fresh espresso, followed by dark, winey cassis and blackberry fruit. An intense licorice edge and a solid, tarry finish imparts drive. Best from 2014 through 2023.
As Belgrave improves each year, it reveals a character that is close to the elegance and style of Saint-Julien, right next door. Chateau Belgrave is situated in Haut Medoc , just west of Beychevelle in St Julien . It is also next door to Chateau Lagrange , which is also in St. Julien. Just a few meters further and it could have been in St. Julien. This 2010, while dense, is balanced, and its rich blackberry flavor is already integrating into its firm tannins. This should age well for the medium term.
品種：52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005 WS93/RP90/NM90/JR16.5
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005
93 points Wine Spectator:
Very aromatic, showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. Best after 2011. 10,000 cases made.
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:
The 2005 Haut-Bages Libéral offers loads of blackcurrant fruit, licorice, spice and forest floor. It is medium to full-bodied, with supple tannin and an expansive, textured mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Drink 2015-2035.
90 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, January 2012:
Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. The Haut Bages Liberal has a refined bouquet, timid at first but growing in confidence with dark berries, wild hedgerow, truffle and scorched earth. The palate is medium-bodied with a racy entry, crisp blackberry, graphite and bell pepper with a masculine, tannic, chalky-textured finish. It is a little rustic at the moment, but full of character. Tasted July 2011.
16.5 points Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2017:
Tasted blind. Deep crimson. Sleek, well-mannered nose. Lots of graphite quality. Quite distinctive. Fruit and tannins well balanced. Quite long and appetising. Drink 2016-2030
Chateau Moulin Riche 2012 波爾多二級莊副牌
Chateau Moulin Riche 2012
產區 : Saint Julien, Bordeaux
品種 : 69% Cab Sau, 20% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Owned and managed by the team at Léoville Poyferré, Moulin Riche always offers excellent value for money and seems likely to do so again in this vintage. Immediately fresh and vibrant, this is a very pure style. With dark berry fruit, some smoky character and crushed stone structure to the tannins and a vein of acidity that gives this an almost-linear tautness, this is quite a grown-up wine in this vintage.
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2006 (WE92, RP90)
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2006
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
92 points Wine Enthusiast:
An evocatively perfumed wine, with aromas of pine, eucalyptus and spice. To taste, it is open, generous, its tannins cushioned inside ripe, jelly black fruits. Everything mingles well, the core of dryness an essential component of the richness of the wine.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has produced brilliant white and red wines at this estate's NASA space age-looking winemaking facility. I remember these wines from the early days of The Wine Advocate, and they were undrinkable swill. That is certainly not the case today. This is classic Pessac-Leognan with leafy tobacco, smoky red and black currant, forest floor, cedar, and graphite notes. It is a medium-bodied wine of impeccable purity, texture, and balance.
Galatrona Petrolo 2010 WA96/JS95/Vinous 94+/WS94
Galatrona Petrolo 2010
100% Merlot from Italy Tuscany
96 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:
A massive expression of Merlot, the 2010 Galatrona is heaven-sent. The layers are infinite here spanning dark fruit, spice and chocolate. I fall in love with this wine year after year. The mouth is caressed with stirring complexity and fine tannins that feel silky and smooth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
95 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, August 2012:
Aromas of black olives, violets and fresh fruit follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of dark fruits and olives. Long and polished. Handmade wine. You sense it. Pure Merlot sensation. Try in 2014.
94+ Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, September 2012:
(100% merlot): Full, saturated ruby. Extremely pure aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, minerals and cocoa. Lush and silky but precise too, with rich, tactile black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. The slow-building finish features ripe but very silky tannins and wonderful purity of flavor. A more refined Galatrona than some recent, more tannic versions; cellar it for another four or five years to allow it to build further complexity and depth.
94 points Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, September 2013:
The chocolate and cocoa notes highlight the black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors in this dense red. Flamboyant, showing plenty of oak, this remains vibrant, intense and long, with a spicy aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases imported.
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008（WS93,WA92)
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008
93 points Wine Spectator (May 2013): The terrific aromas of strawberry, cherry and currant are accented by underbrush, spice and tobacco elements on the palate in this elegant and intense red, which builds to a persistent finish. Fruit and mineral accents echo on the aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030. (BS)
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013): Lisini’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the few wines of the vintage that is going to require patience. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2008 fills out nicely over time with attractive black fruit, smoke, tar, game and savory herb notes. Although quite virile and imposing today, the 2008 also shows striking inner perfume and a level of sweetness that is likely to require some time to emerge, suggesting the wine has plenty of potential for improvement ahead. The 2008 spent 42 months in French oak, exceedingly long by today’s standards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. (AG)
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010 波爾多4級莊 NM94/WE93/WS91
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010
67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
94 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2014:
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. Wow - this Saint Estèphe appears to be just getting into its stride. This seems reticent on the nose at first, but modest coaxing reveals scents of blackberry mixed with gravel and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, firm tannins and a pleasant salty tang on the finish. Masculine and structured, with good persistency and a lovely austere personality, Basile Tesseron and his team have overseen an aloof but engaging Lafon-Rochet that could be the dark horse of the appellation. Tasted January 2014.
Chateau Gloria 2014 (WE96/Vinous94/JS94)
Reserve de La Comtesse 2010 二級莊女爵副牌(NM90)
Reserve de La Comtesse 2010
產區： Pauillac, Bordeaux
品種：51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
90 Points, Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2013
The Reserve de la Comtesse 2010, a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, has a refined bouquet of dark cherries, plum and blackcurrant fruit that you might describe as "neat and tidy". The palate is medium-bodied with quite a plush, generous entry thanks to that ripe Merlot. It is a forward wine for a 2010, very approachable with a fresh finish. It should drink well over the next 10 years. Tasted November 2012.
89 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013
If you're looking for something much more drinkable, then check out the blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2010 Comtesse de Lalande, the second wine of this estate. Sweet mulberry, black cherry, licorice, and forest floor notes dominate this medium-bodied, fleshy, soft wine, which should be drunk over the next decade.
90 points Wine Spectator (3/2013)
Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea. A flicker of singed balsa wood keeps the finish going along.
91 points James Suckling (3/2013)
Very polished tannins that caress the palate. Full body. It's fruity, pretty and refined. The mineral and berry character comes through in a subtle way. Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Better in 2016.
La Gravette de Certan 2014 JS93/WS90 2nd wine of Vieux Ch. Certan
La Gravette de Certan 2014
2nd wine of Vieux Chateau Certan.
93 points James Suckling (Feb 2017):
The plum and blueberry character and hints of cocoa are really impressive. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Integrated and so fine. A beautiful thing. Drink now or hold. Second wine of Vieux Château Certan.
91 points Wine Spectator (2017):
Lovely, with a stream of raspberry confiture flowing through, while light mint, star anise and black tea notes weave in and out. The long and refined finish has a light mineral accent, while the fruit sails on. This is quietly one of the best second wines in Bordeaux. Best from 2018 through 2026.
Chateau Poujeaux 2007
Chateau Poujeaux 2007
產區 : Moulis, Bordeaux
品種 : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc
Château Poujeaux is a leading Cru Bourgeois property that consistently produces wines of Grand Cru Classé quality. Now under the administration of new owner Philippe Cuvelier (owner of Clos Fourtet), Poujeaux has dramatically improved the quality.
90 Points Decanter : This is a rather lovely Médoc, if a touch more restrained that some others here. There is richness to the fruit, but it is tighter, with layers of bilberry and cassis and cedary oak, with attractive menthol notes on the finish. Ready to drink.
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌 JS92-94/WS92/WE91
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌
92-94 pts James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2007
Wonderful aromas of blackberries, minerals and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely core of cool fruit. Racy and caressing tannins. Excellent. 13.2 percent Cabernet Franc--more than normal. Better structured than normal, too.
92 pts Wine Spectator:
Offers violet and blackberry on the nose, with tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity, minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage. Best after 2013.
91 pts Wine Enthusiast :
A beautifully perfumed, dark-colored wine, bursting with black plums and violet perfumes. It is, on the surface, delicious, but taste beneath that and it becomes complex and dark, with immense but velvet tannins, suggesting considerable potential.
89+ pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:
The 2006 Clos du Marquis has a typical bouquet for this cru with forward and lavish black cherries, cassis and incense aromas, perhaps more oaky than some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with an insistent grip in the mouth. This is surprisingly backward with impressive density. You can feel the weight of black fruit in the mouth, although it needs more finesse and precision on the finish. Give this another five years and you could have a "dark horse" on your hands.
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011 JS91/NM90-92
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011
In the heart of the prestigious Pomerol appellation, Château Bourgneuf is spread over 9 hectares in one unique holding. Bourgneuf has belonged to the Vayron family since 1840. Eight generations have succeeded each other, transmitting their love for this land and its history.
91 pts James Suckling, February 19th, 2014:
A wine with a pretty ripe-fruit character and ripe, chewy tannins. Some toasted oak as well. I think it needs another two or three years to soften the tannins and bring it all together. Serious 2011 Pomerol.
90-92 pts Neal Martin – robertparker.com:
The Vayron family have conjured a lovely Pomerol this year… I appreciate its purity and feminity… You know, this could be the best Bourgneufs that I have tasted en primeur. Chapeau! Tasted twice with consistent notes.
Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981 波爾多二級莊，36年風華正茂
Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% petit Verdot.
90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal (Jan 2012)
"It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and compensating with touches of Chinese 5-spice, orange zest, dried blood and sandalwood. Classic old skool St-Julien towards the finish that has moderate length."
91 points Wine Spectator (Oct 1994) : Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 1989): A top success for the vintage, the 1981 Gruaud-Larose is dark ruby, with a full-intensity bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy oak, plums, leather, smoked meat, and violets. This wine is concentrated on the palate, with rich, tannic, lingering flavors.

Chateau Laroze 2012
Chateau Laroze 2012
分級：Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
產區： Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
品種：68% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
1610, my ancestors the Gurchy family were already winegrowers in Saint- Emilion. In 1882, they founded the family estate of Laroze
Château Laroze is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé and its 27-hectare (67-acre) vineyard is located at the foot of the hill to the north-west of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. The vines grow around the Château.
We till the soil, cultivate grass between the rows, drain the plots, add organic supplements and prohibit the use of weed-killers, so that the vines’ roots find it easier to penetrate the soil made of silica and clay.
The quality of this beautifull setting is very favourable for the Cabernet Franc grapes providing us with rich tasty wines that are elegant and more-ish.
Elderton Estate Shiraz 2005 X 6 bottles WS90/Vinous90
Elderton Estate Shiraz 2005
品種：100% Shiraz from Barossa, Australia.
90 points Wine Spectator:
Smooth and focused, with a peppermint edge to the red cherry and blackberry flavors, finishing with a layer of sweet spices.
90 points Vinous:
Inky purple. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the nose, with gentle Asian spice accents. Round, fleshy and concentrated, with energetic red fruit flavors joined by a mocha quality on the back. A wonderfully balanced shiraz with supple tannins.

Chateau Rauzan Gassies 2009 波爾多二級莊
Chateau Rauzan Gassies 2009 二級莊
品種：75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdo
91 Points The Wine Advocate - "A masculine-styled, dense purple-colored 2009, this cuvee offers up scents of charcoal, asphalt, black currants, incense, and crushed rocks. This deep, medium to full-bodied, well-made Margaux is broader, richer, and more substantial than usual, with more alcohol as well as substance. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. This is a 30-year wine.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast - "Soft and ripe wine that shows the richness of the year while offering a core of tannins. It is immediately attractive, although the structure and final tannins do promise aging potential."
Chateau La Pointe 2011 RP90/WS90
Chateau La Pointe 2011
Merlot 85% , Cabernet Franc 15%
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014
This is a strong effort from La Pointe, another estate that seems to be producing better and better wines. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 reveals a dense ruby/plum/purple color, a sweet perfume of black raspberries, black currants, licorice and subtle high quality oak, medium to full body, and an expansive, broad, pure texture. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.
90 pts James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, March 2014):
Very solid, with a ganache spine supporting the enticing dark plum and fig fruit flavors, while bramble and singed wood spice notes fill in on the finish. Approachable now, this should mellow in the short-term. Drink now through 2021. 7,500 cases made.
(March 2012, Primeurs tasting comments by Hubert de Boüard de Laforest): “Deep, bright and lively colour with a dark purple rim. The nose opens out with floral notes such as violet that evolve towards ripe fruits, blackberry and raspberry. The palate is generous and long with a very pleasant freshness. This freshness persists on the finish and complements the lingering notes of tobacco and licorice. The tannins are taut and enveloped in a silky smoothness, a sure characteristic of an outstanding Pomerol. The 2011 perfectly demonstrates Château La Pointe’s reborn style developed over the last few vintages.”
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014 波爾多五級莊 (JS94)
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014
94 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2017:
This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.
93 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2017:
The 2014 d'Armailhac is bright, precise and finely sculpted. Expressive red stone fruit, flowers, mint, chalk and citrus abound in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Pauillac. Open-knit and expressive, with good depth and silky tannins, the wine exudes class. The fresh, invigorating style is classic 2014. This is a lovely showing. Tasted two times.
91 points James Molesworth (Wine Spectator), Wine Spectator, February 2017:
Fresh and pure, but not shy on depth, offering an ample core of cassis and blackberry purée flavors. There's a fine chalky minerality throughout, but overall the structure is polished. Anise and spice notes add range. Best from 2018 through 2028.
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
90 Points Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015:
Valdicava's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is full of floral and dark red/purplish stone fruit notes. The freshness of the year comes through in the wine's aromatic complexity and nuance. The finessed, long finish is particularly of note. I tasted the 2013 from steel just prior to bottling.
