Totally passable as good 1er Cru from the Côte d'Or. — 2 years ago
Donnafugata is one of Sicily's top wineries and this is one of their top wines. It's a big blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and the island's
indigenous Nero d'Avola. The blend also contains an interesting grape called Tannat that is originally from the South West French region of Madiran but has taken hold in Uruguay in recent years. The 2011 vintage was awarded Tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso. — 2 years ago
2014 vintage. Drinking well but not nearly as good as the 2013 is drinking right now. Minuscule benchmark producer of Fiano farming organically. Imported by Marco de Grazia. — 2 years ago
Comte Lafon is considered one of the top producers of Burgundy with most of their bottles selling for triple digits and four digits for their top wines. In the late nineties they ventured out of Burgundy proper (the Cote d'Or) and also setup shop in the southern Burgundy region of the Maconnais by purchasing a domaine there. The focus of the domaine is Chardonnay and they have bottlings from many different villages and vineyards. The vines are farmed Biodynamically (a practice that goes far beyond organic) and most of their wines see a limited amount of oak in order to let the vines express themselves. These are some of the best values you will find in white Burgundy and Chardonnay in general. Ever bottle I've tasted from them so far has been laced with beautiful minerality. — 2 years ago
