Golden yellow color with green reflections. Mineral aromas (flint), floral (hawthorn) and milk (butter, warm croissant) that blend elegant with notes of honey and hazelnuts. On the palate, great concentration of aromas. A finish powerful and distinguished.
This Puligny Montrachet is blends elegantly with meat and fish (veal or chicken in white sauce, roasted sea bass, but also foie gras) or grilled shell fish with sauce (shrimp, lobster...).
Delicious as an aperitif or with mild tasting cheese (camembert, brie, blue, goat, gruyere...).
A nose of citrus and candied lemon characterizes the Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "embazees". These flavors appear again on the palate with notes of almond paste, honey and vanilla. An ample and generous wine with a nice mineral finish.
Average age of the vines: 50 years old.
Traditional vinification in French oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation.
A dense and tight white with a compressed palate and super refined texture. Full body plus bright apple and pear with hints of vanilla cream. Goes on for a long, long time. Tiny production, about half of normal. Better in 2017.
-James Suckling 95 Points
(from a blend of parcels picked during the first five days of October): Pale bright yellow. Peach, pear, tangerine peel and stony, iodiney minerality on the captivating nose. Dense, extremely young and penetrating, with a touch of youthful austerity and strong acidity to the peach and stony mineral flavors. More floral, elegant and fine-grained than the Batard. Best today on the long, stony, rising finish. Drouhin farms these vines and chooses the harvest dates.
-Tanzer 92-95 Points
Philippe Milan Pommard AOC is 100% Pinot Noir
This wine has been aged in Oak (25% new Oak)
This is a little more structured and the style goes more toward the "vin de garde", or wines meant to age. This wine needs some food, or sometime in the decanter right now. It is well structured and reminds me of a Volnay. As a matter of fact, the parcel is located right next to Volnay. The finish is long and still quite juicy with chewy tannins lingering.
Never Look Back Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon.
A full-bodied, richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon with intense black fruit, well-integrated French oak and a smooth, lingering finish.
One glass of this rich, lush Cabernet Sauvignon and you’ll never look back!
Try this with prime rib, roasted lamb or grilled mushrooms.
