"Very deep garnet-purple colored, notes of warm blackberries and blueberries with nuances of menthol, some spice cake, anise and bacon fat". 91 points. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate.
The wines of the Premier Cru Fourchaume vineyard are noted for their rounded citrus flavours and fresh streak or minerality.
Purchased by the Comte Lafond, ancestor of the current owner, Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, Château du Nozet and its surrounding vineyards have a reputation for producing the finest Pouilly-Fumé
A deep and lush ruby colour, with an alluring nose of rich fruit, and subtle touches of violet, smoke, and leafy herbs. Fulsome yet elegant, the tannins are smooth and the palate tightly structured.
A generous and straightforward wine, with a defined nose of blueberry, cherry and loganberry fruit, accented by soft vanilla oak. The palate is more robust, with the lush fruit framed by firm tannins.
An inviting, approachable wine made from nearly 90% Merlot, with a lush sweet-fruited centre of bramble, cherry and plum. Subtle hints of sweet pudding spice lift the nose.
Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva is crafted in the traditional Rioja Álavesa style that pays loving homage to the vision winery's founders, Guillermo and Camilo Hurtado de Amézaga.
With an explosive nose of pencil lead, crushed blueberry and black cherry, it has an opaque purple colour, glorious thick texture and fantastic balance for such a big wine.
