Red Wine 

We tried this wine when we visited Bill Blatch at Vintex, the negociant firm owned by the people who own Chateau de la Riviere. We were thrilled with the wine. It has a nice earthy style with bright red fruit flavors, some spice and coffee-like aromas, and firm structure with a long fruity finish.

White Wine 

"Here is another very rich and strong wine. It checks in at 14?0 alcohol and 150 g/l residual, and is full of ripe, quite roasted flavours. Yet it has tremendous freshness, partly from the quite high acidity and also from the 'lift' that it's chalky Barsac subsoil certainly provides. So, in the mouth, as well as being very rich, it is also very fresh."

2011 Château de Sancerre - Sancerre (750ml)
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc | Location: France - Loire Valley - Sancerre
White Wine 

The crisp, vibrant style of the cool 2011 vintage plays marvelously into the understated, elegant style of the Sancerre appellation’s namesake château. Bright yellow with gold flashes at the rim, the 2011 Château de Sancerre displays an intense Sauvignon Blanc varietal bouquet of orange flower and wet stone. Vibrant flavors of citrus, melon and stone fruit float above the palate, enlivened by a rush of gentle minerality and crisp acidity toward the finish. A terrific aperitif all by itself, and a match made in heaven with a creamy chevre from our cheese department.

2010 Château de Ségriès - Lirac Cuvée Réservée (750ml)
Varietal: Rhone Blend | Location: France - Rhone Valley - Lirac
Red Wine 

Full deep ruby, this wine opens with a nuanced, almost liqueur-like bouquet of blueberry, violets, and a hint of wood-smoke. On the palate, well-concentrated but also light on its feet (a neat trick for any wine), with a floral, almost plummy display of red fruit flavors. These initial, fruit-driven flavors are deepened by darker, penetrating, Châteauneuf-du-Pape-like notes of minerals and herbs from the 10% Mourvèdre component. (The rest of the blend is 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault.) Offering a near-Châteauneuf-du-Pape authority and complexity of flavor at a Côtes-du-Rhône price, this wine is a super bargain. Although ready to drink now, this wine offers an aging potential of 2 to 4 years.
--Ben Giliberti, CW Director of Wine Education

"Vivid ruby.  Black and blue fruits on the highly perfumed nose.  Spicy, focused and gently sweet, offering deep blueberry and cherry flavors that pick up a floral nuance with air.  Closes spicy and long, with excellent clarity and sneaky tannins." 
--90 pts, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Fruit-driven, this is packed with flavors of lush boysenberry, plum sauce and blackberry preserves, with ample drive and cut. Hints of hoisin sauce and anise add definition on the slightly toasty finish. Drink now through 2014. 3,500 cases made.”
--89 pts, Wine Spectator

2010 Château des Laurets - Puisseguin-St.-Emilion (750ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux - St.-Emilion
Red Wine 

A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Chãteau des Laurets opens with an utterly refined bouquet of fresh cedar, violets, and crushed berries. On the palate, the bold, pure fruit of 2010 asserts itself with remarkable verve, supported by firm, well-resolved tannins. While quite enjoyable now (decant 45 minutes in advance), the firm tannic structure, which is somewhat masked by the precocious fruit at this point, will provide excellent aging ability of 7 to 10 years, if not more. A tremendous value.

White Wine 

"Denis Dubourdieu considers this vintage to be the finest produced by him, his father and his grandfather! He is a great proponent of the preservation of fine fresh botrytis fruit flavour and usually eschews any excess sweetness that he considers may smother it.

This year, however, he has found a much sweeter balance, at 155 g/l residual, but this in no way compromises the freshness of the spring flower aromas and white peach fruitiness (there is little of the usual dried apricots this year) and it is all balanced by a quite high acidity (4.5 g/l). The result is an unusually sweet but very complete and complex wine that will certainly age for ever.

Denis has also managed to produce 7 barrels of 'Extravagant', a 50-50 Sauvignon - Semillon blend this year, with 12? of alcohol and 320 g/l residual. It is a very fat style of wine, more on its power than the slightly more fruit-driven '07."

Wow! We've been carrying this super cuvee from Denis Dubourdieu's Doisy Daene property for many years and this is definitely one of the best. Denis actually told us at our tasting that he feels it is indeed his best ever. Super sweet and rich, but with enough acidity to offer balance and freshness. Lots of candied tropical fruit flavors. An amazing effort that seems to linger in your mouth for minutes.

"The feature of this wine is clearly its menthol-fresh brightness and spring flowers aromas. Probably all this comes, rather like at La Tour Blanche, partly from the particularly fresh nature of the 15% Sauvignon, partly from the soil structure.

At 140 g/l, the wine is certainly very rich and this sweetness almost - but doesn't quite - smother these fine aromas. So the wine is a combination of extreme fragrance with quite extreme concentration: rich yet fresh, strong yet gentle."
