"As I have indicated in previous reports, Feytit-Clinet is a property on the rise. The 2010 comes from a tiny vineyard of about 18+ acres just across the street from Trotanoy and Latour a Pomerol. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc reaching 14.5% natural alcohol (a nearly standard level of alcohol in most Pomerols and St.-Emilions in 2010), this wine sports a dense purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries, blueberry liqueur, cassis and licorice as well as hints of mocha and white chocolate. Full-bodied, dense, and rich, with sweet tannin and good acidity giving it a laser-like precision and freshness on the palate, this wine should drink nicely for 15+ years." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate, (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Rating: 95, Drink: 2013-2028
"From an up and coming estate, this 2010 was made from yields of 33 hectoliters per hectare. It achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, it boasts an opaque purple color along with sweet blueberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with hints of truffles, charcoal and background oak. Dense, unctuously textured and full-bodied with super concentration and purity, this beauty is well-worth buying given the upward qualitative trend exhibited by Feytit-Clinet. It should drink well for 15-20 years." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate, (5/1/2011, Issue 194), Rating: 92-94, Drink: 2013-2031
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.
