A lovely time to taste Sauternes, when it's still showing the fruity flush of youth, with just a hint of the honeyed secondary notes to come. Lush aromas of ripe stone fruit, waves of beeswax and floral chamomile. Crème caramel and lemon curd linger on the honeyed finish. Try with fresh Okanagan peaches, prosciutto and roasted hazelnuts.
A big, rich mouthful of ripe, developed dark fruit with depth and complexity. Shows spicy and herbal notes on the nose, concentrated blackberry flavours, velvety tannic structure and a touch of dark chocolate on the very long, smoothly integrated finish.
Deep ruby colour; cedary, blackberry with notes of dried herbs on the nose; medium to full-bodied, dry, elegant, firmly structured and beautifully balanced with well-integrated ok. Savoury black fruit flavours. Hold 4-5 years.
Refined Burgundian nose conveys enticing scents of spicy raspberry and strawberry, shifting to cherry and dark berry flavours on the palate. Good depth of fruit, together with refined velvety tannic structure and harmoniously integrated finish make this a richly satisfying wine. Not cheap for a Côtes de Nuits-Villages, but delivers the goods.
Shows dark purple in the glass with characteristic spicy, peppery bitter cherry fruit, grippy tannins and food-friendly acidity. Finishes with a touch of alcoholic heat.
Dense purple-black in colour with herbal, blackberry and vanilla oak on the nose; medium to full-bodied, dry, blackberry and dried herb flavours with a firm tannic finish.
Fragrant raspberry, floral cherry blossoms, strawberries are seasoned with light spice and supple, fine tannins. The middle is a bit muddled, right up to the pink peppercorn kick on the finish. This young Fleurie, from 3 lieu dit and granite, clay and manganese soils, will age well over the short term. #GoGamayGo.
