Critical Acclaim

SP93 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2015

"This has a perfumy edge, with a black tea note weaving around the core of lightly mulled plum and blackberry fruit. Dried star anise and a twinge of bittersweet cocoa chime in on the finish, which has fine-grained grip. Drink now through 2022. 450 cases made." (93 pts.)

VN92 Vinous May 2015

"Deep ruby with a bright rim. Assertive red and dark berry aromas are lifted by notes of white pepper and fresh flowers. Juicy and sharply focused on entry, then deeper and broader in the mid-palate, offering zesty black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of candied lavender. Supple, harmonious tannins lend gentle grip to this suave wine’s long, penetrating finish." (92 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
