90 points Robert Parker "The 2005 Etna Rosso Rovittello is Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappucino that spends a year in French oak barrels. The Rovittello is made in a forward style that emphasizes fruit and a soft-textured, juicy personality. The wine-making approach yielded a generous, fruity wine but one that lacks the aromatics definition that defines this great, indigenous grape. Anticipated maturity 2010-20"

2nd wine of Chateau d'Issan
Riesling Steinriegl Smaragd shows a very clean, golden colour, with a hint of green coming through. It is fantastically shiny, and on the nose beautiful aromas of citrus fruits, smoke and exotic fruits are expressed. This is a brilliantly structured wine, both powerful and very impressive, though also gracefully elegant. All in all, a fantastic example of Smaragd, and a real pleasure to drink.

Replanted in 1990 with twenty different ancient clones drawn from Toni Bodensteins personal collection, this 1 hectare site lies at 400 metres overlooking the Danube; its a different site from that of the Veltlinber however. The net result of such terroir is a wine of bristling acidity, exquisitely balancing the 23 grams of residual sugar to brilliant effect: such purity, such weave, such joy. Drinking from 2015.

A classic Meursault nose of milled grain and lightly-toasted hazelnut, along with fresh lemon and orange peel, mint, and green tea lead to a palate that is at once subtly creamy, oily and honeyed, but also refreshingly citrus and invigoratingly zesty and spicy in its long finsish. This will prove fascinatingly delicious for at least 4-6yrs. 90 points Robert Parker

Intense aromas of dried lemons, honey and apricots follow through to a full-bodied, dense palate of very sweet fruit that shows masses of dried fruit characters. Last a very long time on the palate.
Light golden with just the slightest tint of green, the 1983 Rieussec, from an excellent year for Sauternes, is certainly one of this property's greatest wines. Well structured with excellent acidity, and a deep, long, rich, full-bodied, viscous texture, this wine, despite the richness and power, is neither heavy nor cloying. It has gorgeous balance and a very long, lingering, spectacular finish. One of the great successes of the vintage.HOME SUPPLY
Intense gold with persistent fine mousse. The nose opens with floral rose notes and warms to toasted brioche. The mouth is full and fresh with spicy floral notes (wallflower or nasturtium), underpinned with candied yellow fruit. The finish is long and dry. This is a classy mid-term vintage from Pol Roger that will continue to improve for at least 5 years in bottle and in magnum for 10-12 years.
An exclusive declassified Sauternes from the greatest estate in the region. Chateaux that do not have a second wine often declassify the production that does not quite make it into the final selection of the Grand Vin. Naturally we cannot reveal the name of the Chateau in question but rest assured that this little beauty will not disappoint! The 2009 vintage was a great one for Sauternes, on a par with 2007 and 2001, and capable of ageing for 30+ years.
One of the less well-known Prager vineyards & wines, yet for me one of their most singular & thrilling, perhaps because Klaus is located way up the rock face at approx 550 metres above sea level, on one of the Wachaus most exposed sites & Pragers highest vineyard. I admire this wine for its uncompromising stance & brilliant tension; influenced no doubt by the rocky, nutrient poor soils. One for the long term, till 2019 & beyond.
La Dame de Montrose is the second wine of Second Growth estate Chateau Montrose, and produced a real beauty here. Made of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, this is a plush and sexy La Dame.
Intense nose of tropical fruit and caramel. In the mouth, it has more caramel, melons and a touch of grass. Very pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Medium long finish with some barrel toast. Some evidence of oak
"This is also notably ripe with aromas of exotic yellow fruit, resin and an herbal character that carries over to the rich, full and relatively generous flavours that possess somewhat better precision compared to the Puligny villages, all wrapped in a delicious, opulent and freshy finish of good but not special depth". Burghound 88-91/100
The subtle smokiness of this wine gives intensity to the flavours of lemon, ginger and spicy pear. It is fresh and lively with a zesty acidity. I recommend opening this with a savoury chicken dish.Grape variety - 100% ChardonnaySweetness - DryTaste - lemon, minerals, ginger, spicy pear, melon
A delightful Bordeaux; the initial flamboyant and sexy aromas subside to reveal powerful flavours of blackberry, tobacco leaf and coffee.

A good deep ruby colour, but not black and a powerful fruity nnose of red and blackcurrants despite teh relatively cool year. A great structure of slightly sweet notes of rum and raison which comes from the 20% American oak used for this wine.

Riesling is like Marmite, you either love it or hate it but I defy you to try this wine and not like it. The balance between sweetness and acidity is near on perfect.Grape variety : 100% ReislingSweetness : sweetTaste : rich, dense, toasted aromas
This particular wine is only produced in years when the Pinot Noir grapes reach perfect maturity. The wine derives from the following holdings: Les Bressandes, Les Chaumes, Les Pougets, Les Perrières and Les Grèves, all of which are planted with vines with an average age of over 40 years. After about 10-12 months of ageing, each cask is then meticulously tasted and only the finest ones, showing the best colour, bouquet and capacity to age, will be blended to make Château Corton-Grancey.
This dense ruby/purple-colored wine is one of the most successful wines of the vintage for this appellation. With a firmly structured personality and deep, sweet plum, fig, black cherry, and kirsch notes with some cassis in the background, this is a generously endowed, moderately tannic wine that should be at its best between 2010 and 2020.' - Robert Parke
