Listrac Cru Bourgeois Includes gift box with wine accessories
Stoic and firm in character, the nose, with its tobacco, wet earth, spice, cassis and cherry aromatics are the best part of the wine. There is an austerity on the palate that will definitely appeal to lovers of older classic wine.

Castelo di Nieve Santo Stefano Includes gift box with wine accessories
This Barbaresco is fully mature with tertiary characteristics of forest floor underscored by notes of cherries, roses, and baking spices. On the palate, it is elegant, with a long spicy finish.
Pair this wine with rich meat focused dishes like braised short ribs, beef roasts, lamb or veal chops. Here you'll find that the smoke and earthy qualities of the wine are complemented by the dish. Feathered game, such as duck, goose, partridge, or quail are also excellent.

A very good port Port that has a very good complexity and mouth feel. Drinking well now as showing some maturity with a little tannin. This will hold for another decade, not as backward as some of the other port producers. 90/100 TC - Barros Tasting @ Barros Mar 2016.

Biondi Santi - Annata
Biondi Santi's brunello di Montalcino is an elegant, age-worthy wine which is known for its brilliant garnet hue and its bouquet of berries with underlying vanilla and spice. A hint of earthiness brings balance to the finest examples.

Cuvee Passion - Bordeaux
This 1994 wine is a merlot based blend from Bordeaux. It has a nice mature and ripe with earthy currant and plum fruit. Palate is nicely sweet as well, but finishes very dry. At the end of its drinking window but still tasty.

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification
Made in an attractive, more muscular style, the 1994 displays a dark ruby/purple color, spicy, meaty, curranty aromas with a touch of cedar and earth, moderate tannin, and good flesh and structure. It may develop into an upper eighty point wine if the tannin melts away without a loss of fruit.

St Julien 2nd Growth Classification
" Ducru is on a roll, with fine efforts over recent vintages, including an exceptional 1994, spectacular 1995, and what looks to be an equally profound, super-concentrated 1996. A top-notch effort in this vintage, Ducru-Beaucaillou's 1994 displays a dark purple color, a textbook, cassis, mineral, licorice, and floral-scented nose, medium body, outstanding extract and purity, moderate tannin, and a persuasively rich, sweet, spicy finish. Everything is well-integrated (including the tannin). This should prove to be a classic St.-Julien." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1997. Parker Rating 90/100 (outstanding) …

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 92 Points Robert Parker ***
"This is one of the surprise sleeper wines of the vintage which has more successes than many people suspect in spite of all the rain. The tremendous drainage enjoyed by the Haut Brion vineyard worked in its favor during this wet September harvest. The color is deep plum/ruby with a bit of lightening at the edge. Notes of compost, truffle, earth, spice box, dried herbs, and licorice compete with sweet black cherry and currant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied, with a relatively plump, chewy feel to it. It is certainly one of the top half dozen or so wines of the vintage.

St Julien 2me Cru Classe
A garnet core with deep brick rim, slightly brighter than the 1993. The nose is very conservative upon the first couple of sniffs, but be patient because it evolves an attractive mulberry scented aromas with touches of bilberry and Satsuma. The palate is medium-bodied, harmonious, firm tannins, rather conservative but with very good weight and far more freshness and vigour that I was expecting. Quite meaty and very savoury towards the rustic finish, it is almost as if it wants to be Figeac! Very fine considering the vintage and far superior to the lamentable 1993. Drink now-2014 Tasted March 2008.
