"This bastion of traditionally made wines has fashioned a firm, structured, potentially long-lived blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a moderately closed, but promising nose of red and black fruits interwoven with loamy soil and underbrush notes. Nicely textured, medium to full-bodied, high in tannin, but oh, so backward, it is hard to compare it to other vintages, but it may be a modern day rendition of the brilliant 1988 (one of the Medocs of the vintage)." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (10/30/2003, Issue 149), Rating: 91, Drink from: 2012-2025
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.
