Bibi Graetz Testamatta 2012 vintage is a stunning wine. This is the best Testamatta ever made. Fascinating aromas of red fruits, tea, bark, and wet soil as well as fresh leather. Full body, silky tannins, and a juicy finish. I love the tension and texture of this great red. So gorgeous to taste.
Beautifully balanced, this opens with alluring scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and whiffs of chopped herb. Seamlessly combining ripe fruit and the firm’s trademark finesse, the bright elegantly structured palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of black tea framed in polished tannins and fresh acidity. It’s already, tempting but the best is...
Garnet red color with delicate orange reflections. Fine and complex bouquet with violet and wild berry notes. Its flavor is full, velvety and harmonious. Great elegance in this wine that in the best vintages can bear the qualification “Riserva” on the label. 2011 Vintage.
Red garnet color with orange glints. Elegant and refined on the nose with notes of mature red fruit, rose petal and dried flowers. On the palate, the wine showcases a silky texture, full body, good acidity, and velvety tannins. 2009 Vintage.
The wines predominantly hillside provenance is revealed in layers of blackberry liqueur, licorice, and espresso, with savory, energetic notes of Darjeeling tea and dried orange peel adding further complexity. The soft, ripe and well-integrated tannins add plushness and texture; Darius II finishes long and persistent with notes of incense, sweet oak, and dried herbs.
Good freshness to the intensely mineral-inflected and beautifully well-detailed middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a hugely long and palate staining finish. This classy and zesty effort is quite stylish and the class of Chevalier is evident. Vintage 2016.
Stunning aromas of butterscotch and caramel seduce the senses guiding to a tightly wound, yet explosive, fine-tuned palate that exudes elegance and is reminiscent of the limestone terroir that the grapes stem from. Preserved lemons, marzipan, pears, and honey notes flood the perfectly balanced, complex mouthfeel. Luxurious and intense, this powerful bottling leaves a lasting impression in the seemingly endless,...
Clos Saint-Denis from Domaine Gagey is an elegant wine, with a nice ruby color. It presents aromas of cherry and blackcurrant but also spices. The tannins are both powerful and subtle. It will match ideally game and most cheeses from Burgundy. Vintage 2015
Full dark red; more saturated than the Clos de Bèze. Shows a brooding, dark character on the nose, with aromas of blackberry and licorice complicated by a subtle animal quality. Incredibly concentrated but youthfully imploded, with its sappy dark berry, spice and earth flavors intensified by underlying saline minerality. Despite the impression of pent-up power, there’s nothing hard about this...
Two of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel.
Rich, powerful and seductive, the 2012 Opus One blossoms in the glass with superb textural richness and volume. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, cedar, new leather, and tobacco all meld together as 2012 shows off its personality. Fine, silky tannins.
The greatest Opus ever. Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries, and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity.
Mesmerizing aromas of flowers, bark, currants, and blackberries. So perfumed. You just want to smell it. Exquisite tension and finesse with an almost Burgundian texture, yet it's Napa in its soul with ripe fruit, stones, spices, and Chinese tea leaf flavors.
Limit 6 per order!
Purity and brilliance on the nose with so much current and flower character. Roses, currant bush and fresh leaves, too. Brightness is the word that comes to mind. Full-bodied and broad-shouldered. Juicy and so gorgeous now.
