What a nice surprise. Basically wrote Dauvissat off due to my experience with bad bottles in the states. This one was perfect. Sexy and generous. From the nose to the luxurious but balanced oak dimension to its lengthy finish. Drinking well now. Can imagine it a knock out in a few years time. — 9 days ago
Visited the Domaine today, and received this bottle as a gift with our order. Sorry to see Anne is leaving next month, to be replaced by an equally friendly lady named Elodie. This domaine is on fire with many 2018 based releases. The Special Club and Noces de Craie are superb. — 23 days ago
The 2019 Poesia has the richest and most opulent bouquet with precocious black cherry, glycerine, lavender and violet aromas, bursting from the glass and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with plush, ripe tannins. There is a lot of puppy fat here, rounded and perhaps "sexy" compared to the 2018, mouth-filling and voluminous. This will need time. Tasted at the Poesia vertical in Saint-Émilion. (Neal Martin, Vinous, June 2022)

What a treat to enjoy this pristine bottle of Marcassin Pinot, perfectly stored since release, the wine had plenty of dark red fruit, a touch of floral perfume on the nose and then dead sexy on the palate, rich and balanced with a long silky finish. Thanks AT, it was even better enjoyed with you! — 10 days ago
Popped and poured. At this stage the 2015 Judge Family Syrah pours an opaque, ruby color with some obvious staining of the tears. On the nose, clean and youthful with developing vinosity. Stewed red and blue fruits, dark brambles, purple flowers, bacon fat, dry caked earth, stale potpourri, rotondun, and cigar box. On the palate, the wine is dry and all of the notes from the nose are confirmed and accompanied by dark bramble fruit with some chocolate and smoked meat. Tannins are medium+, acid is medium+…and so is alcohol. The finish is long and tart…but more like a SweetTart. This is a very sexy wine with everything in the right places and the moves to match.

Mesmerizing - took about 45 mins for the nose to spring to life but boy did it - violets juxtaposed with graphite and old library notes - sexy. Palate was outstanding- blue fruits, spice box, tobacco, leather and extremely long and silky finish. A perfect wine in my opinion — 13 days ago
Deep ruby colour. Superb nose, both natural (varietal notes) and classic (breeding). The nose is really sexy! Semi-bodied gourmet mouth, giving pride of place to a high-flying vinification on modernity with the fruit ahead. This suggests their best on the most prestigious cuvées in the estate. A very beautiful expression of the Cabernet franc de Loire.
Robe rubis profonde. Nez superbe, à la fois nature (notes variétales) et classique (élevage). Le nez est vraiment sexy! Bouche gourmande demi corsée, faisant la part belle à une vinification de haut vol sur la modernité avec le fruit en avant. Ça laisse présager leur meilleur sur les cuvées plus prestigieuses du domaine. Une très belle expression du cabernet franc de Loire. — 25 days ago
