Fermentation with indigenous yeasts in oak vats. Aged for 24 months in barrels made from oak chosen in our cooperage. Before bottling the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. After bottling, the wine will undergo a refining process for at least a further 12 months in our cellar.

On the nose, it displays ripe, dark fruit, grape syrup, bitter chocolate and as it opens up, hints of spices such as pepper, vanilla and a little mountain scrub begin coming through.

On the palate, it is balanced, with a soft touch of acidity to give it good potential for cellaring. The attack is broad and long, with an evolution in the mouth which spreads silky and mineral sensations before concluding with sweet tannins which still have a bit of “grip” and will benefit from some “time out” for their full integration.

In the retro-olfaction the notes of oak and mountain scrub are more clearly defined, repeating the impressions noted in direct olfaction but with a greater preponderance. It is a vintage with “character”.

The grounds of the Saint Julien Appellation lie on the graves massif and colluvions formed during the two episodes of the Mindel era, just like at Pauillac. This partly explains the strong presence of Grand cru classified châteaux in Saint Julien. One often says that, for climatic reasons and from its geographical position, the wine from Saint-Julien is being in-between the force of Pauillac and the finesse of Margaux. The history of the grounds confirms this assertion as Saint-Julien differs from other names of the Medoc by its terraces of average altitude from Mindel era and also by the relative balance between the two types of graves from this era.

In 1985, Paul and Edith Chaudiere left their jobs in private industry (she was a voice therapist and he was a physical therapist) to study wine at one of France’s top wine universities at Suze la Rousse. 1989 marked the creation of the property in Mormoiron, one of the tiny villages dotting the beautiful countryside under the Mont Ventoux. Since then, they have been pushing the quality envelope in the zone, forcing other growers to raise quality as well.

This word Terrasses from the Latin terras, meaning "lump of earth". The Côtes du Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, grape growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building "terraces" into the steep hillsides, choosing especially well-protected, sunny locations. Still today, the Provence countryside boasts centuries-old olive trees planted on terraces called restanques or rébanqués in Provençal. Paul and Edith Chaudière chose this name in homage to the Provence countryside terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites.

Soils: Located on the hillside at an altitude of 280 to 310 meters and facing southeast, this vineyard is planted in gravelly soil covered with pebbles.

Aging: 35 % of this vintage is aged in oak barrels (2 or 3 years old). Bottled at the Château.

Situated in a natural ampitheatre with 360 degree aspects, this vineyard is dry grown and produces small crops of deeply concentrated Syrah with high tannin levels.

The yield here rarely exceeds two tonnes/acre and is often much lower. This old gone ungrafted Syrah vineyard has a unique character which I describe as 'the full meal followed by the cigar'!

This wine is made in the same manner as all the Syrah vineyards and shows it's individuality purely due to vineyard influences.

This wine develops slowly and positively for a most complete tasting experience.

Edmeades Zinfandel Mendocino
Edmeades Zinfandel Mendocino

WA90pad

The 2007 Mendocino is a little different from past vintages. Instead of being dominated by cherry aromas, this leans more towards a mixed bowl of berries. The other interesting point is an aroma like a rustic mountain cabin with fresh red meat and spices being prepared for dinner and then freshly baked wild berry pies for dessert - of course the wood stove damper is not working well so there is a little smoke in the room...

The tannins are soft and supple, but the acidity comes through with a bit more acid structure than in past vintages and stays with you till the cows come home. We always add a little Syrah and Petite Sirah for the mid palate, filling in the hole of the donut, but this year it is a little more pronounced in the flavors and aromas, hence the gamey and meatiness underneath all the mixed fruits.

With aging the wine should evolve into a very layered and complex Zinfandel, with toast and spice from the oak picking up in intensity and the creaminess becoming more apparent after a few years.

One of the most sought-after pieces of land in Ribera del Duero, the estate of Villacreces sits next to Vega Sicilia, perhaps (historically) the most famous property in the region. It was owned for years by the Cuadrado family but in 2003 was sold to the Anton family, owners of a Rioja bodega Izadi and one of Spain’s most famous Michelin starred restaurants in the Basque country. All of the grapes for Pruno are grown on the estate, and aged 5 and 25 years old. The wine is aged 12 months in 2 year old French oak.

Deep, black cherry color. Aromas of red fruit embodied with toffee oaky hints from the aging in French barrel revealing a sweety and fruity wine on the mouth. Reminiscences of ripen fruit and liquorice. It offers a pleasant and soft aftertaste.

As with Flegenheimer Reserve Red, Ben Glaetzer, is making this 96% Grenache/4% Shiraz blend. Cuttings were taken from a very old Grenache vineyard in McLaren Vale known for producing a delicate, perfumed expression of the varietal. When ready, the cuttings were planted as bush vines on the western slope of Hammerschlag’s property. This portion of the vineyard has the hardest soil and is quite windy. In short, it is the toughest spot on the property which is exactly where Grenache should be. The varietals were harvested, made and aged separately. The wine did spent a few months in neutral barrels but was largely matured in stainless steel tanks to preserve its elegant perfume and aromatic character. After 12 months, the wine was blended and bottled with only a very light filtration.

The name 'Isole e Olena' was conceived in the 1950's when two adjoining estates, 'Isole' and 'Olena' were purchased by the De Marchi family and were combined to form one. Today the Isole e Olena estate is run by Paolo De Marchi and his family. Paolo comes from a family with three generations of winemaking experience in the northern section of Piedmont . He was raised in close contact with the wine world as he has always enthusiastically followed the development of his grandfather's estate located near Gattinara, Villa Sperino, where Lessona wine is produced. The traditional 4-grape Chianti Classico blend was gradually altered to diminish the quantity of white grapes present until complete elimination. Thus the Isole o Olena Chianti evolved from being a light, young wine to the fuller-bodied wine of today, which is destined for cellar aging. Simultaneously Paolo began experimenting with the production of a wine made exclusively of Sangiovese grapes. His efforts in this direction have yielded the resultant wine named Cepparello. In 1980 he produced the first Cepparello.

From the creator of "The Prisoner", Papillon is a full and rich Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The fruit originates from some of Napa Valley's most celebrated appellations including Howell Mountain, Saint Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville. Marked with intensity and grip, the aim is to showcase a wine that's as fitting as the label photographed by the renowned Greg Gorman, and hand model Vince Tofanelli - a 3rd generation grape grower and friend. Papillon takes flight upon release with aging potential up to 8 years.

Composed of all five Bordeaux varieties, Papillon is a Cabernet based red wine. The goal was to make a stand alone wine that incorporates all the majesty of Cabernet Sauvignon with the subtleties of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the power of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The wine casts a dark shade of crimson with a tinge of magenta on the rim of the glass. Classic aromas of currant, cassis, and plum are instantly present along with soft French oak notes and some cedar box accents. Rich and opulent, flavors of Bing cherry, ripe blackberry, mocha, espresso, and black licorice welcome the palate.

Connoisseurs judge a champagne house by the quality of its non vintage brut wine . It is on its brut, created in the mid-19th century, that Perrier-Jouët has built its reputation. The House style is distinguished by the extensive use of chardonnay. Perrier-Jouët owns 161 acres of vineyards with an average cru rating of over 99% including 99 acres in the most renowned villages for Chardonnay (Cramant and Avize.) The wines show lightness and sweetness, as well as a rounded and fruity character.

Great balance and a lingering finish mark this zesty, full-flavored brut as something special. Rich in fruit flavor, crisp in balance, with an underlying tangy quality that begs for another sip.

French it may be, but in 1861, Champagne Perrier-Jouët was the favorite of Queen Victoria, and the House became not only the official supplier of the British monarchy, but also of the Swedish royal family and the King of Belgium.

Cristal, the ultimate Champagne to be produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon the 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer French Champagnes amongst the most sought-after in the world. For connoisseurs the world over, there is nothing finer than Cristal. Jewel in the Louis Roederer crown, cuvée CRISTAL remains faithful to the value which inspired it in 1876 when, especially created for Tsar Alexander II, it sought to epitomize the elegance and purity of Champagne.

Twenty percent of the wines were matured in wood (oak barrels) with weekly batonnage. There was no malolactic fermentation. Cristal is made from grands crus from the Reims mountains, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. Matured for an average of 5 years in the cellars, it is left to rest for 8 months after disgorging to complete its maturation. Dosage is adapted to each vintage, at between 8 and 10 g/l. 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay.

The 2005 vintage was a year of marked contrasts between seasons and regions. Following a fairly harsh winter, 2005 had a mild spring with relatively warm temperatures all year long. There was above-average sunshine and a slight water deficit, as had been the case throughout the dry cycle of 2005/2004 and 2003. The heat and humidity in July produced larger grapes and bunches, rather unusual for the Champagne region, while the cooler weather in August, followed by a very sunny month of September, led to favorable ripening in spite of heavy parasite pressure. The harvest dates were typical of those of the decade: September 12th for Chardonnays and the following day for Pinots noirs.

From its first years of production Riserva Ducale has become synonymous with fine Chianti, and it has played a leading role in the development of the privileged position which Tuscan quality wines hold throughout the world today. In many markets this Riserva has in fact transcended its category and become known simply as "Riserva Ducale". It has managed to preserve its excellent reputation through time, thanks to Ruffino's commitment to cultivating the finest Sangiovese grapes on the slopes of the Chianti Classico hills.

Colour: Intense ruby red.
Aroma: the 2006 Riserva Ducale is characterised by particularly fragrant, fruity notes, typical of this vintage. Sweet cherries and red berry fruits meet with delicately spicy hints of cigar box and white pepper grains and elegant scents of red roses and flint.
Tasting profile: Fruity, soothing, and well-balanced, the taste reveals velvety tannins and a enjoyable spicy sensation. The ageing in oak enriches the fruity core with hints of cacao and cloves. The long-lingering aftertaste adds intriguing notes of rosemary and figs.

Obsessed with making a contemporary terroir-driven product, he set out immediately planting new vines, and clonal selection has since been a driving force in his work. He currently has 126 acres under vine. Campaccio, a blend of Cabernet and Sangiovese, was Guldener's first wine at Terrabianca, and remains the winery's flagship offering.

Growing area: 40% Chianti Classico, 60% Maremma. Yield per vine: 1.7 kg. Density: 6,000 vines per hectare
