Product Description

Bressia Lagrima Canela is made from 70 % Chardonnay, 30 % Semillon

Barrel fermented for 14 months in new French and American oak

Tears of happiness, passionate and sensual, are brought on by this blend, from the most intimate place, to transform them into pleasure and hypnotism. The cinammon of the soul is combined with sweetness and delirium in this original "assemblage". It is an intense greenish-yellow wine with luminous golden highlights. It has fresh, elegant floral aromas lent to it by its grape varieties, as well as a touch of oak from its oak aging. On the palate it has very good body, and good unctuosity but at the same time is fresh and floral. It is a wine of great delicacy and subtle elegance.

Light gold colored with a perfume of candle wax, pear, melon, and toasty oak, on the palate the wine is medium-bodied with well-integrated oak, dry flavors, a creamy texture, and outstanding depth and concentration.

 


"The white 2015 Lágrima Canela felt better balanced than the 2013 I tasted last time. It's a blend of Chardonnay from Gualtallary with 30% Semillon from Tunuyán in the Uco Valley. It's a barrel-fermented blend that matured for eight months in new 300-liter French oak barrels, but somehow the fruit is in the forefront, and the oak feels better integrated than in the past. The palate also has very good freshness and is nicely textured, with an impressive, long and persistent finish. It's very tasty and faintly balsamic. It's very drinkable now, but time in bottle should only do it good. 5,000 bottles were filled in November 2015. Luis Gutiérrez"

Review:

The 2015 Lirac La Reine des Bois continues this estate's mastery of the appellation, combining hints of vanilla with black cherry fruit in a full-bodied, richly textured and tannic wine. The blend is 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre, with up to 15% being aged in barriques. Longtime readers will be happy to know that the 2010 (still youthful) and the 2006 (nearing maturity) are drinking well. Based on that, expect this vintage to drink well through at least 2030.-Wine Advocate 93 Points

Guillemot-Michel Vire-Clesse is made from 100 percent Chardonnay

Aged on the lees for a few months. No Oak.

Ripe passion fruit and pineapple on the nose, and fresh minerality. Very rich on the palate, well balanced. Honey, tropical fruit flavors and a great finish. The wine is excellent.

 


Review:


"Notes of Acacia honey, musky peach, beeswax, fresh apricot and dried white flowers introduce the 2016 Viré-Clessé, a silky, medium to full-bodied wine with exceptional concentration, textural elegance and length on the finish. Despite its ripeness and subtly botrytis-inflected character, it's underpinned by tangy acids and remains beautifully balanced and integrated. This is well worth seeking out. – William Kelley"

- The Wine Advocate (August 31st 2018), 93 pts

"Medium yellow. Yellow fruits, orange blossom, smoke and flint on the nose and palate. Thick and saline on entry, then seriously deep in the mid-palate, with suggestions of exotic fruits perfectly countered by strong saline minerality. I love the balance of sweet and salty elements and vibrant acidity. The slowly rising finish is very long and smooth. This wine, made from vineyards that have been Demeter-certified for more than two decades, boasts a thickness that few 2016s from the northern Mâconnais can match. I'd love to follow this unctuous yet energetic Viré-Clessé as it loses some of its baby fat but it's approachable already owing to its texture and balance. - Stephen Tanzer"

"The pricey 2013 Conjuro is an impressive blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that felt lighter and more balanced than in previous years, with sweetness from the tannins and oak-derived flavors and aromas. It has herbal and spice notes from the Cabernet and Merlot and round, juicy tannins after 18 months in new French barriques. I wonder how this blend would be with less new oak... 3,500 bottles were filled in December 2016.- Luis Gutiérrez"

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #237, June 2018), 93 pts


"This year, Conjuro is 50% Malbec, grapes from Agrelo and Vista Flores, Bressias’s preferred and primary sources for this variety. Where Cabernet and Merlot are concerned, they went to the higher parts of Gualtallary to get the grip that’s clearly present here. It’s pretty impressive to see how this wine has evolved: from a heavy, very ripe red to where it is today, a red fruit focused blend, best defined as medium to light bodied, but at the same time with enormous length, which is, at the end of the day, what matters. Wines with length more than breadth. and enough acidity to brighten a meal, that’s what it’s all about."
- Descorchados, 94 pts


"(14% alcohol; aged for 18 months in new Taransaud barrels): Healthy red-ruby. Complex, sexy aromas and flavors of black fruits, mocha, brown spices, tobacco leaf, licorice and flowers. Wonderfully broad and savory on entry, then ripe and sweet in the middle palate; not especially fleshy or outsized but intense and aromatic in the mouth. The very long finish features firm but well-integrated tannins and sexy spices. Classic Gualtallary energy here--and the spine to evolve gracefully for another decade. - Stephen Tanzer"

Ecard Maurice Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2018

Ecard Maurice Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir is 100 percent Pinot Noir.

Supple, fresh red wine with distinct fruitiness and showing a lot of the characteristics of the terroir from where the vines are situated with cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry aromas. Discreet tannins in the flavors give a more feminine image.

Growing in light and stony soil made up mainly of clay. The alcoholic vinification takes place in stainless steel vats followed by malolactic fermentation and aging for 6 months in 2 – 4 year old oak barrels.

A good all round red wine for meat courses, grills, barbecues and light cheeses.
