    Domaine La Suffrene

    France (France), Provence (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    Beautiful dark colour. The nose gradually unfurls to aromas of black olive, prune, truffle, liquorice. On the palate, a rich wine, both powerful and harmonious with seductive aromatic complexity and already imposing length.

    Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The colour is very deep purple/red. The aromas very focused and intense, precise and super-ripe. It's a colossal wine, with great fruit sweetness and density, and seemingly high alcohol. A spectacular wine, which some may find a bit 'over the top'. But it's not jammy or dead-fruited. An impressive wine for those who love big reds."

    R. Dumont et Fils

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "Vivid yellow. Intense, mineral-laced orchard and citrus fruit aromas are complicated by emerging notes of iodine, honey and white flowers. Sappy and precise, offering energetic pear, orange and honeysuckle flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. Shows excellent clarity and punch on a finish that emphatically repeats the mineral and floral notes."

    R. Dumont et Fils

    Champagne (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    This has a nice, fresh nose, full of bright lime and lemon zest scents, a sweet curl of apple concentrate, some grassy herbs, and a little yeasty, oxidative notes. Nicely complex and very pleasing. The palate showed more of those oxidative tones, with lots of browned apple flavours on the attack, but while clearly developed, it also had a bright, juicy feel to it, with the appley flavours taking on a more citrussy tone of fleshy lemons on the midpalate, before drifting into a nice tail of yeast and mineral and a little spice.

    Chateau Gruaud Larose

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "This tastes of great Cabernet Sauvignon, with its black currant, cedar and herbs and fresh, juicy acidity. It is as fresh as it is rich, but it has a structure of dense tannins that balances the wine. This is one of the best wines from Gruaud-Larose for several years."

    Chateau Pichon Baron

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition."

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    "An admittedly hard act to follow, but the 1962 Scarpa Barolo Riserva Speciale (a wine I hadn’t tried in the last six or seven years and was curious to see how it was holding up) was up to the task, and then some. This bottle was in perfect shape (decent provenance is always a problem with older Italian wines), still showcasing bright red cherry, rose petal and delicate tar aromas and flavors of noteworthy intensity, supported by vibrant acidity; unfortunately, thirty minutes after opening the bottle, less memorable woodsy and underbrush notes took over, while the fruit disappeared. Nevertheless I was very impressed by the wine, especially considering that 1962 is remembered as a vintage of mainly elegant Barolos but of dubious ageworthiness. Clearly, they were confident of the wine’s merits at Scarpa, as they chose to make a Riserva Speciale, something I wouldn’t have thought to be a particularly good idea in the 1962 vintage. Clearly, this wine proves me wrong."

    Chateau Latour

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Bizarre as it may sound, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is also the finest I have ever tasted from this selection, which comes from specific vineyards, not really so much a second wine as just another wine from estate holdings. A blend of 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27.5% Merlot that represents 40% of the production, this astonishing wine hit 14.3% natural alcohol. Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids (and that wine is still drinking great 30 years after the vintage). Sensational notes of graphite, crushed rocks, black fruits, camphor and damp forest notes are present in this expansive, savory, full-throttle wine, which is better than many vintages of the great Latour itself from the past. (That may be a heretical statement, but it’s the truth as I see it.) This wine needs a good 5-6 years of cellaring and should age for three decades at minimum, given the fact that the 1982 is in terrific form and wasn’t this concentrated or prodigious. "

    Chateau Leoville Las Cases

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil. Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017."
