  • E Guigal, Hermitage Rouge 2012

    E Guigal, Hermitage Rouge 2012

    Jancis Robinson "Bessards, Méal, Rocoule, Beaumes, Pierelles. A little bit of Murets. This is apparently a slow seller,' a shame, paradoxical'. Treacle and richness and mass on the nose. Some purity and drive. Chewy end and some freshness...

    Ecker-Eckhof, Gelber Muskateller 2016

    Mocali, Rosso di Montalcino 2015

    90 points Wine Spectator "This shows power and density, with a burr of tannins supporting cherry, iron, leather and underbrush flavors. Firm, yet stays fresh and persistent on the long finish. Drink now through 2021." (10/2017) Jancis...

  • Niepoort, Rotulo Tinto (Dao) 2015

    Niepoort, Rotulo Tinto (Dao) 2015
