"The 2011 Vosne-Romanee Les Champs Perdrix is located around 45 meters in altitude farther up the slope from Romanee-Conti and is usually picked about ten days later. It has a slightly subdued bouquet at the moment, but it is nicely defined with subtle Morello cherry and fresh strawberry scents that muster more intensity with aeration, but decline to soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a feminine, very fresh opening: crisp raspberry and strawberry fruit enmeshed with fine tannins and structure toward the finish. One of those wines where less is more." - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (8/28/2013, Issue 208), Rating: 89, Drink: 2014-2022
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
