Such a perfumes nose - intense ripe red fruits, exploding as you breathe in......
Subtle and balanced on the palate - just a dream and pleasure to drink - one of the best Italian wines I have had - simply beautiful :) — 4 days ago
Not bad for a $20 Chianti from 2009
Easy drinking everyday wine — 2 years ago
Some peach and melon coming through - not as balanced as I would like but never-the-less a lively wine — a month ago
Another of Didier's fine Sauvignon Blancs - if only I could bottle this nose and taste - French Sav Blanc at its best.
Steely/minerality to this but at the same time bursting with green apple (think Granny Smith) but with honeyed notes around the edges - last night I had - 2007 Silex which was DD's last vintage before heading to make the best wine of all with the Master Vintner - and I thought that was awesome - this tops that and more - pity I'm drinking it alone.....:( — 2 years ago
Lovely 19 year old Malbec - not nearly as good as the 2000, but still great to drink French Malbec — 2 years ago
Slight oxidation on the nose, evidenced by some port cella ring in the cork, however it still holds it own - on the palate it is well balanced between the wood and fruit - tannins are open and ready to drink - if storage had been better it would be interesting to have seen what this was like.
But I enjoy it never-the-less and looking forward to having it with my veal chop :) — 2 years ago
