  • This is a fine, ripe and fruity wine. It has fresh acidity that gives a clean, bright aftertaste. It is full of red fruits and soft texture. The red-fruit flavors are balanced by the acidity that makes it a delicate wine that is ready to drink now.
  • This is a fine wine from the Cte des Anjoules, the top vineyard of Chteau de Chteau de Couille. It has a firm, dry core of tannins, as well as black currant and black plum fruit. The acidity is showing in the aftertaste, which gives it a bright aftertaste. The red-fruit acidity gives a crisp aftertaste.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (52) makes up the majority of this blend, with Cabernet Franc (20) on the balance. This is a refined expression of the variety, with a plush, round texture, layers of acidity and generous flavors of black currants, red licorice and cola. It’s translucent on the finish, with a lingering, almost warmly spicy finish.
  • Ripe and soft, this is the first Grner Veltliner from this new producer. It’s a silky, sweet wine that delivers a full array of peach, apricot and citrus flavors, with a vanilla custard note. The balance is just right, and it’s dry and light in body, but packs a punch of acidity that makes it a terrific apritif.
  • This is a pretty, dry and light wine for drinking now. It has a nice balance of citrus and apricot fruit as well as a lightly honeyed character. It has a clean finish, and the aftertaste is ready to drink now.
  • The hint of smoke is followed by a richly perfumed palate, with notes of honey, citrus and peach. The finish is long and clean.
