Vintners Hall - London
Tasted Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - Wednesday, November 18, 2009 by pjaines with 747 views
A wonderful tasting arranged by Farr Vintners in London. Attended with Toby.
An interesting flight - high acdity in a lot of the wines.
Strength in depth for this wonderful producer.
Some mind blowing wines here - including the astonashing Craggy Range Le Sol - what a surprise
Toby and myself retired to The Hide Bar for a 'freshener' and some much needed food.
We were a little fatigued to say the least, so finishing off with a big fat nasty shiraz was not the best idea.
Some impressive wines, with the Craggy Range Le Sol wiping the floor with the reds just for sheer surprise.
Palmer produced some alluring wines, but Pichon Lalande I thought was a little disappointing as were the wines of Lynch Bages.
Beaucastel as usual produces stunning wines but they will need years to mature.
Across the boards the Loosen wines were amazing consistent and very fine.
