2016 Château Doisy Daëne Barsac
Barsac | Gironde
The palate has loads of earthy/savory layers with great concentration and depth, finishing long and lively.
Château Lanessan Haut-Médoc
2009 Château Lanessan, Haut-Médoc
Haut-Médoc | Gironde
Silky and fleshy on the palate with a chewy finish and hints of liquorice and red fruit compote. Beautiful opulence, silky tannins and a long finish.
Clos de Lunes
2019 Lune d'Argent
Bordeaux | Gironde
Lune d’Argent is the heart of Clos des Lunes’ production. We firmly believe in the future of this legendary terroir and its truly original style. With a touch of French oak, the Sémillon is dense and rich, the Sauvignon Blanc refined and precise. This cuvée of dry white wine promises to convey all the magic of Sauternes.
Rich fruity flavour palate, reminiscent of the nose and very unctuous. The acidity plays well its role by supporting this richness and by bringing a freshness of very suave taste. The tight finish is highlighted by very fresh flavours of candied citrus and a very mineral salinity.
Château La Favière
2016 Château La Favière Rouge
Bordeaux Supérieur | Gironde
A beautiful wine of an intense red color.
An elegant nose of ripe fruits and delicate spices notes.
Rich and generous, it develops into a complex mouth with roundness and character.
A very structured wine with suave tannins and a long-lasting and pleasant finish with the potential of cellaring for a minimum 15 years.
