Joseph Drouhin Pouilly Fuissé White

Pouilly-Fuissé has a golden hue. It is usually very brilliant. The bouquet is seductive: floral and fruity with a dominance of ripe fruit and fresh almonds. After some time in the bottle, Pouilly-Fuissé develops a lovely, complex bouquet. On the palate, the wine is round and dry. As such, it is a nice expression of the Chardonnay.

Award winning gem from the real Alsace. Pure aromas of yellow plum, rose petal, lichee and curry powder; real essence of gewurztraminer here. Very rich and ripe, with terrific depth of fruit and layered texture. The wine’s sweetness comes from sheer ripeness and substantial alcohol, as there’s less than five grams per litre of residual sugar. Lovely harmonious acidity…

Terredora Taurasi Fatica Contadina: All Gone

December 12, 2011
Terredora Taurasi Fatica Contadina

The ‘Barolo of the South’. Aglianico is the grape. Big, rustic and brooding go the shorthand descriptors. We have been aging these 2005’s for almost 5 years now. Almost all gone, never to return. In fact, we have 1 bottle remaining. Now that’s what I call rare. The only 1 available in China. Intense ruby colour with garnet reflections. Pronounced complex nose with hints of black cherry, spicy scents of violet and tobacco, tar and mineral notes. Full bodied, elegant, smooth, velvety and intense on the palate, with balanced tannins and aromatic intensity. Excellent cellaring potential, with bottle age, adding to the wine’s complexity.

Perpetual is a homage to the Priorat wines made to be cellared. An intense wine, full of character, that was born to conquer time. Tasting notes: Very dark, intense ruby colour. An aroma of preserves (cherry, blackberry) and spices on a highly characteristic mineral base. On the palate it has great volume with an admirable balance between the wine’s fruity density and its spicy notes acquired through ageing in new oak (cedar, toast). During its prolonged, complex finish there’s also a hint of chocolate and tobacco.

Tyrrell's Vat 9 Shiraz

“Clear, inviting crimson; like all the top Tyrrell’s Shiraz, open-fermented, matured for 15 months in near-new and one-year-old French 2700-l oval casks for 15 months; the X factor is the special purity of fruit flavour coming from ancient vines on red soils.
