  • 2015 Tenuta Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino

    100% Sangiovese. 14.5% alcohol. Maceration time of 18-20 days. A total of four years of ripening there of years in 25-50 and 75 hl oak barrels from Slavonia and Allier followed by at least 12 months bottle maturation.

    Quite a dense power aromas with concentrated aroma of darker plums, cherries, exotic spices, mushrooms, leather and strong saltiness. Full bodied wine that is surprisingly available in the mouthfeel. Closes again at the finish with stronger darker notes of dark cherry, deep concentrated plum, dark raspberry, slightly dried berries, tough spice notes, leather, salt and a touch of espresso. The alcohol is there, but the acidity is so present that the wine is not perceived to be otherwise fresh. Firm tanninsZ Real power pack of a Brunello from Col d`Orcia that many will like with their forward-looking and tough style. Note - if you like leaner and more rustic Brunello is not this wine for you in this vintage. Anyway - Very good quality! 91 points. For now. (91-93 points)

  • 2017 Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 60

    Syrah. 13% alcohol. Grapes mainly from the Patou vineyard, where the domain disposes of 1.4 hectares. 0.5 acres are 60 year old vines. Only natural yeast from own vineyards is used in the fermentation. Over-pumping occurs regularly. The wine is stored and ripened in well-used oak barrels (2-8 years old) and bottled unfiltered about 18 months after the wine harvest.

    Fresh and very pleasing aromas of fresh dark flowers lying over blackcurrants, redder plums, half-raw meat, a touch of juniper and clearly finely ground pepper that seduces. Pretty full-bodied wine and fresh Cornas that create lust. Typically tight, yet has a forward-looking and richer style that creates good balance in the wine. Slightly smooth mouthfeel. Typical dark purple fruits, deep salty soils, graphite, espresso, leather, licorice and herbs in the form of clear juniper berries. Good acidity and tannin structure that provides good bite on a long finish. Cornas need cellar time, including this one. But here is a lot to come from 5 - 15 years. Super wine from Paris. 92 points.

  • 2017 Terroir Al Limit Soc. Lda. Priorat L'Arbossar

    100% Cariñena (Carignan). 14% the alcohol. 90 year old vines. Hand picked, spontaneously fermented and ripened in large used barrels for 2 years. 4668 bottles made in total.

    Concentrated and masculine aromas with red berries, darker fruit rind, deep saltiness, and dried leather. Full-bodied and complex wine with concentrated dark red currant fruit that takes charge from the inside and spreads out with power. Deep soils, leather, anise, dark pepper and a touch of herbs. Long powerful finish that creates desire. Good tannin structure on this very nice and distinctive wine from Priorat. 93 points.
