Just missing in the finish the ultimate balance, but there was no need to spit out this wine!

Even the Ripasso technique can't make a miracle out of an average bunch of grapes. Let's say 'nice'; no faults and nothing to remember.

A large basket of red, juicy fruit, firm body, bit hefty at the end; very enjoyable if you don't go for complexity.

Just a tad above 87 point; a wine you can nearly chew, without being hefty. Positively changed after some months of rest. Good balance, good body and a deep, classic chardonnay bouquet. Lovely now and the next two years.

1992 Quinta Do Infantado Porto Vintage

Port Blend more

Far better than the first bottle some months ago; no hefty acidity; a creamy, ripe and round port with a sound and lively core, alcohol well hidden in the aftertaste. Drink now until?

First year of new management/ownership (?) Nice, round, balanced, but I think the following vintages will offer more character.

The bitters in the aftertaste suggest some Rolle; this rosé will benefit with an extra year of ripening. Good and serious wine to supprt the local stuff.

With 46° not for the faint-hearted, although the alcohol is partly covered by its fruit and body. Good balance and perfect to end a dinner with.

Nice, fresh, balanced, but missing the complexity and power of the 2012 Remi Jobard Bourgogne Blanc (but also less expensive).

Classic (for me in the style of Henri Germain), seriously made and even more quality than an average meursault. Please wait two years with tasting this wine.

Attention: this is the new blanc de noires, nice but missing a bit its balance and for me a tad too sweet. I have some bottles to retaste the wine.

Nice to taste; nothing wrong with this sekt, decent, fresh, stony, pear, lychee, bitters at the end to keep the mouth fresh; only € 9 and really worth it!

For me better than the meursault '10 with more finesse and a stylish balance; more complexity and from nose to finish 100% puligny.

For me the wines of Bertrand seldom fulfil my expectations, either missing concentration and complexity or a pricelevel not according with the quality level of the wine. Also this time: nice wine, but missing the real body.

Yes, the first really good bottle: ripe and creamy in the nose with lots of fresh cherries. than a lovely midtaste with roasted coffee beans, a bit chocolate and a good acidity; in the aftertaste creamy, vanilla, round and ripe tannins; 90 points for the next bottle?

The third day this wine really opened and found its balance. Starting flowey and quite innocent the evolution of this wine continued and at day three the elements were integrated: lovely fresh nose with depth, volume in the midtaste (round and balanced) ending in a very nice aftertaste with a slight bitterness.
