really liked this, and thought this was drinking great last night. wonderfully aged Bordeaux..perfect with our prime rib

Still a bit young in my opinion, but is beautiful and pure. Great minerality and acidity, and fruit..very good, but still a bit tight and a bit shy
Red
Slight fizz but all about pure ripe lush fruit. Lauer great at the table with cider/sweet onion braised pork main
Red
Drinking great now, and many years to go. Really great lush fruit held in check with great acidity. Really enjoyed this tonight with dinner.

Just wonderful as usual and a great example of a beautiful chianti classic that is built to age. Great purity of deep cherry fruit, earth, florals, spice and good acidity. I buy these in every vintage. Just a wonderful food wine!! So glad I have more to drink!

Still fresh with a hint of residual sugar. Classic anjou chenin in fruit profile, and minerality. It is a 2006 so the acidity is mid level. I bought his 2002 vintage of this wine many years ago, and loved them. This is a good wine in a so so vintage for white wines. We.had this with some Cypress Grove cheese and Alphonse Mellot's XIX.

this puts on weight with aeration. Pure red fruit with herbs and good minerality. Just wonderful. I havr cellared this since purchase and has years to go in a cold cellar. Yummy

Cellared since my purchase..Ripe fruit with soil tones balanced by an almost perfect acidity and good minerality. I purchased these for 26 and that is good value. Great barbera that impressed me with its balance.

Dark fruit, everything in balance with good acidity. Fantastic food wine

2008 base vintage. 100 percent chard from 75 year old vines. I am a big fan of this cuvee. This cuvee does better with time in the cellar, my preference is around 4 years. The balance is here, with fruit, chalk and minerality. This is still young, and I adore this.

This is a young classic Serralunga Barolo from a warmer vintage. The fruit profile is darker, yet not roasted. Good acidity and balance. This needs time!!
