    Bodegas Alonso

    Jerez (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    4 x 375 ml

    Cured Meat


    4-bottle Historic Saca Set. Only 500 sets produced.

     

    1 x 375 ml Gaspar Florido Amontillado | 90-100 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Palo Cortado | 60-70 years old

    1 x 375ml Gaspar Florido Palo Cortado "Tú no te Olvides"  | 110-120 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Oloroso | 60-70 years old

     

    "Part of a four-bottle pack and not sold separately, the NV Amontillado, the top of the range presented in a square-ish/short, round, stocky bottle, comes from a very old solera from Gaspar Florido of Manzanilla origin. It is sharp and vertical with signs of very old age, powerful and concentrated but keeping elegance, poise and balance. This is truly outstanding and world class."

    97 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Dec 2017

     

    "One of two Palo Cortados, the NV Palo Cortado was bottled from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was Pedro Romero. It also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately. "

    "The NV Palo Cortado "Tu no te Olvides" also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately, so the price is only approximate as it's not yet exported and is only sold as part of a four-bottle lot. This comes from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was said to be the Ansa Real solera of Gaspar Florido, a mythical, iconic wine. It has more Palo Cortado character than the other one in the series. There is some creaminess and some nutty aromas with a combination of sharp and rounder characteristics on the palate that make it a good example of the style."

    "Presented in the same stocky bottle as the Amontillado, the single-cask NV Oloroso, whose origin is a very old wine from Pedro Romero believed to be 60 to 70 years of age, is extremely old, concentrated and powerful, with parameters off the charts by pure evaporation and concentration through old age. It's intense, pungent and penetrating, with a sweet touch that softens the sensation on the palate."

    Domaine Jamet

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "Plenty of violets, pepper and deep-set spices are all part of the equation here, and this is a very complex Côte Rôtie that has a wealth of darkly stony notes, coal smoke and dark chocolate. Just superb! The palate's succulent and swathed in plush, fine tannins that envelop black- and red-plum flavors. Plenty of volume, great elegance and a lot of detail. A vintage when experienced makers could still shine, and the sorting in the vineyard was clearly a large part of this. Classy wine with so much on offer. Best from 2020 for a decade or more. Tasted in tank shortly before bottling."

    95-96 points - James Suckling, Oct 2016

     

    "“Finesse, but not without concentration” is how Jean-Paul referred to the 2014s. We tasted a number of component parts from across his blends of 16 different parcels. Rather than bottling single parcels he prefers to blend, and keeps new oak to a minimum (10-15%). The overall impression is a fragrant, floral, peppery style with good aromatic definition and adequate concentration for medium-term ageing. It will be ready relatively early, and despite not being a terribly weighty vintage, its elegance and balance with provide much pleasure."

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that stretch out slowly as the wine opens up. Displays excellent definition on a very long, lively finish that's given shape by chewy, building tannins. (JR) "

    "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Reserve is brilliant stuff. I was able to taste this from two separate bottles and it never failed to impress. Coming from all the estate terroirs, and including some seriously top juice, its deep purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, spiced meats, and incense, with an undeniable mineral/dried earth character developing with time in the glass. With full-bodied richness, ripe, yet present tannin, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 10-15 years. 93+"

     93 points - Jeb Dunnuck, Jan 2018

     

    "The 2015 Cote Rotie Reserve is rich, velvety-textured and long. Raspberries and herbal notes are joined by hints of cured meat in this medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for up to 15 years. (JC)"

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Light, bright yellow. Aromas of white peach, noble herbs and toasty oak are lifted by a stony quality (none of these '17s show any exotic character). Fine-grained, concentrated wine with sweet flavors of stone fruits and white flowers nicely framed by harmonious acidity. This wine really benefited from the dry growing season, noted Alexandre Bachelet, who added that its pH is 3.1, about the same as that of the village Chassagne. Offers good density and grip for village wine."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Quite a lot of floral fragrance and lovely white fruit too. Strong saline stony character on the finish – very concentrated and lengthy, with archetypical nervy acidity."

    Donatella Cinelli Colombini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "I love the way this wine has absorbed and reflects the sunny and warm personality of its maker, the brilliant Donatella Cinelli Colombini. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne has her spirit and her vision, and I recognize that as I taste through these samples. Her distinctive winemaking mark is achieved with botte and tonneaux aging, and her style is definitely fuller and more generous than most. It's a modern Brunello, if you care to categorize wines in this way. Only 6,660 bottles were produced. The vineyards are exposed to wider horizons that make for more light hours each day (from dawn to sunset) of the growing cycle. I'm on team Donatella."

    95 points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Feb 2018

    "Fragrant and elegant, this offers lovely scents of pressed blue flower and an earthy whiff of new leather. The savory refined palate delivers ripe red cherry, cranberry, star anise, orange zest and crushed herb alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. It's nicely balanced, with bright acidity."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    94 points - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

     

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "(made from six parcels located "next to" the premier and grand crus of Chassagne-Montrachet, according to Alexandre Bachelet, who added that about half of these vines are less than 30 years old): Distinctly floral, pure scents of pear, white peach and menthol; showing well today thanks to the earlier malolactic fermentation, which finished in February. Juicy and light on its feet, with its flavors of white peach, menthol and dusty stone displaying modest flesh but lovely precision. Finishes with very good lift. The Bachelets will rack this wine just before the 2018 harvest, but it will remain in stainless steel until bottling next March or April."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Crisp white fruit without the sulphidic complexity of their Santenay, but loads of leesy, mealy character on the palate. Very savoury and very dry to finish – cries out for food."
