Tasting Notes

"Deep ruby. Perfumed, deep red and black fruit aromas are complicated by vanilla and sweet spices on the enticing nose. Then more austere on the palate, with mounting tannins camouflaging the red fruit, coffee, leather and smoked meat flavors. Finishes clean and long, but less massive than usual. What this wine has lost in weight this vintage it has gained in balance." - Ian D'Agata,, (May, 2014), Ratings: 88-91

"This wine is dark and extracted, with bitter chocolate flavors as well as hints of black-currant fruit. It does have weight and structure that could develop, but will need time, so wait until 2020." - Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast (3/2016), Ratings: 87

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.
