Reviews:

With a fine sense of maturity, this is rich, toasty, full-bodied and concentrated. It is a Champagne with weight, showing pink grapefruit, melon and green plum flavors inside an intense texture. At the end, acidity combines with a fine toasty flourish. Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

"A beautifully complex, toasty and overtly yeasty nose complements the equally complex and utterly delicious flavors that possess obvious concentration as well as excellent length on the satisfying finale. It’s clear that this has some age on it and while it could easily be aged to good effect, it’s already sufficiently ready that it’s drinking very well now. In sum, this is terrific and well worth considering." Allen Meadows' Burghound.com 93 points

Product Description

Rich and powerful. Black fruit on the palate, followed by smoky gaminess and a nice Bacon aromas as well. Very good spicy character and silky tannins.

Less than 10% new oak (from the 30 hectoliters "foudre" barrels)

Review:

Brilliant ruby. Highly expressive, smoke-accented black raspberry, potpourri, game and peppery spice aromas carry a minerally topnote that gains strength as the wine opens up. Intense red and dark berry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Puts on weight on a persistent, sharply delineated finish that echoes the berry and smoke qualities and leaves behind allspice and cracked pepper notes. Tanzer 92 Points

Review:

A tiny production new cuvee (there are just 100 cases), the 2015 Lirac Secret de la Grange is similar to the Cuvee Reservee, yet has another level of polish, purity and finesse. Notes of blueberries, blackberries, crushed rocks, roasted meats, toasted spices and licorice all soar from this gorgeously concentrated, rich, yet seamless Lirac that has no hard edges, notable freshness and a great finish. It's straight up high class and should drink nicely for a decade. – Wine Advocate 91-94 Points

Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc La Fontaine 2015

Grand Veneur Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc La Fontaine is made from 100% Roussane.

Yellow-gold color. The nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla : the wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. "La Fontaine" is often considerated to be one of the best Châteauneuf du Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine.

Best between 1 and 8 years.

 


Review:

"A bigger, richer wine, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Fontaine Blanc is still aging in barrel and is marginally darker in color than the classic white. Buttered apples, brioche, honeycomb and hint of orange blossom emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, seriously textured white that has moderate acidity and tons of fruit. It will be interesting to see how this comes together, but it has serious potential. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Wolfberger Alsace Grand Cru Riesling Rangen de Thann 2012

Mineral, spicy, minty with some eucalyptus notes, tropical fruits, grapefruit. Balanced and exotic in the finish, with long lasting flavors.

The Rangen Grand Cru is located in Thann, deep in the south of Alsace. Its particular soil is made of volcano-clastic rocks that drink up the heat of the day and send it back out again at night. The composition of the soil allows the roots of the vines to drink deeply from the mineral-rich sub-soil. Its southern exposure has the advantage of refreshing, drying winds in case of dampness. The high slopes are quite steep, reaching 68% in some places, requiring that the harvest be done by abseiling or roping down. Perfect for aging, these wines will reveal even more qualities after several years in the cellar.

Pair with Serve with fish, seafood, sushi, sashimi, goat cheese, vegetarian food.

 


Review:

The nose is dominated by fresh citrus notes of lime and lemon zest, underneath it, a riper fruit is hinted at. The palate reveals it as tart, fresh and juicy red apple. There is wonderful, tingling concentration on the palate, given extra pizzazz by the bright, zesty acidity. Notes of stone and chalk peek through. The palate is dry and slender but concentrated and toned. The finish plays with delicious grapefruit notes. - Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

"There's refreshing, cool earthiness to this tight young riesling, a deep mineral tone and root-cellar savor that balances its floral, lemon-curd flavors. As potent and earthy as the flavors may be they finish clean, with enough cut to stand next to braised rabbit or other white-meat game."

Pago de Carraovejas El Anejon 2009

Pago de Carraovejas El Anejon 2009 is made from 93% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1%Merlot.
Color: Red Purple with same color nuances.
Aroma: Complex nose, suggestive of red berries, tinges of dairy products, toasty and spices.
Mouth: Powerful and elegant wine. Well structured and balanced.

"Glass-staining ruby. Explosive, smoke- and spice-accented dark berry compote and floral scents are complicated by notes of spicecake and vanilla. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a refreshing touch of blood orange. Rich but energetic, with superb finishing clarity, slow-building tannins and lingering sweetness. - JR"
- Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (September 2013), 93 pts

"The 2009 Pago de Carrovejas El Anajon de la Cuesta de las Liebres (to give it its full name), is Tinto Fino blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot and raised for 12 months in French oak, has a much better, more refined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a suggestion of wild heather and cedar. The palate is full-bodied with good backbone and structure, while the crisp acidity keeps the graphite-tinged finish agile and focused. This is very impressive. Drink now-2017."

Porrera de Vi de Vila de Vall Llach Priorat 2012

Porrera’s great Carignan grapes are famous in the auspicious circles of world wine connoisseurs.

Celler Vall Llach is privileged to possess vineyards which grow extraordinary Carignan grapes and which have allowed the winery to release this new Vi de Vila de Porrera (new category of wine within the DOCa. Priorat which is based on the concept of village-level wines), as the winery’s true jewel.

Ancient Carignan vines, carefully selected from vineyards which are over a hundred years old and then blended with an average of 15% Grenache grapes.

These vines are from a different era and truly define the personality of our Porrera de Vall LLach.

The 2012 vintage was good in the cooler zones as the lack of rain and successive heat waves led to some grapes turning to raisin in the sunnier vineyards. Rainfall was well below the average levels of the previous years. This vintage can be characterised by a lack of rain, but most particularly by the successive heat waves which occurred from the month of May until the end of August. These heat waves caused the vines water stress as there was practically no rainfall from the middle of spring until the end of the summer. The effects of this were not apparent in the hotter zones and the vineyards with more sun exposure until the end of a spell of extreme temperatures in August.

This was due to the fact that relative humidity was higher than normal and the windy periods tended to be less intense. It rained in March and April and after that, rainfall tended to be insignificant until the beginning of July when it did not rain at all until the end of September. In terms of average temperatures during 2012, they tended to be normal. Regarding the different grape varieties, it is worth pointing out that Garnatxa (Grenache) and Carinyena (Carignan) better withstood water stress, whilst recently introduced varieties tended to turn more readily to raisin. This ability to better withstand drought was more visible in the older vineyards. Over the spring and summer months, the scarce rainfall meant that grapes were very healthy and there were no problems with botrytis.

The grapes ripened healthily in the lead up to harvest. Up until the end of August, we did not observe any water stress and berry development and ripening continued without problems. This was a dry vintage from the flowering phase right up until the ripening phase and was characterised by a significant gap between levels of alcohol and phenolic


Review:

Ripe, lush and a touch raisiny on the nose, this smells like boysenberry pie and crème de cassis liqueur. Chewy, tannic and a bit heavy in this youthful state, this offering from vineyards in the town of Porrera (Vall Llach's home) delivers blackberry, cassis and prune flavors along with a toasty, chocolaty, oak-heavy finish. Best from 2016 through 2021. - Wine Enthusiast 93 Points

Ron Thorn Shiraz 2014

Deep red with a slight purple hue on release. The wine has a rich mix of dark chocolate infused with coffee bean and black liquorice, then scents of tar, aniseed, raw (pure) soy and black olive on the nose. The palate is expansive, and yet balanced and finessed. An amalgam of dark berried flavors and textural sensations. The 100% new oak is completely absorbed, meshed with ripe tannins, completing a palate of impressive length and youthfulness.

Parcels of fruit for this wine were identified in the vineyard by the winemakers. Daily fruit inspection led to the fruit being harvested at optimum flavor ripeness. The fruit was harvested at night and quickly transported to the winery. The fruit was destemmed to 6T open fermenters for fermentation. A Shiraz specific yeast was selected to ferment the wine and fermentation was carried out at a maximum of 28°C. The fermenter was manually pumped over twice daily in the first half of fermentation to give the winemakers control of color, flavor and tannin extraction. Pump over regimes were adjusted toward the end of fermentation to suit the tannin and flavor extraction of the wine. The cap was completely broken up on each pump over. The wine remained in fermenters for 6-8 days (dependent on parcel) before being pressed, inoculated with malolactic bacteria and filled to American oak (100% new barrels). The wine was racked post malolactic fermentation and returned to the same barrels. The wine was topped every month and after six months racked and returned to the same barrels again. Prior to bottling the parcels were emptied from oak and blended. Minimal fining and filtration was carried out prior to bottling.

 


Review:

Thorn Clarke has taken its Shiraz to a new level with this single-vineyard wine, bottled only in exceptional vintages. The 100% new American oak gives this a classic Barossa profile, starting with vanilla, cedar and maple syrup-like notes and flowing seamlessly through ripe blackberry and plum flavors. It's full bodied, lush and creamy in texture, with a long, velvety finish. Drink now–2025, possibly beyond. - Wine Entusiast 96 Points
