Like all Pouilly-Fume, this wine is 100% sauvignon blanc, however, this is a select reserve bottling of old vine grapes by the Maison de la Colline estate. It shows delectable herb and citrus notes and considerable complexity.
Bright and fragrant in aromas of jasmine and lemon rind, this wine impresses in its textured minerality of wet stone and sea spray. Structured and complex, it shines in a light-bodied approach that never holds back in flavors of apple and pear.
Dark ruby red in color with satisfying aromas of boysenberry, dark cherry and mulberry along with delicate hints of baking spices, dill, cola, nutmeg and vanilla. On the palate, bold flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, cherry and super-ripe strawberry are uplifted by gentle notes of cocoa powder and sweet fig for a generous and silky mouthfeel. This tremendously complex and broad-shouldered wine finishes with grace.
The 2017 Il Bruciato shows an intense ruby red color. The nose presents the notes of red and black berry fruit which are characteristic of this vintage and capable of giving the wine an excellent concentration. Sweet spices and a hint of licorice complete the bouquet. The palate is well structured, persistent, and highly pleasurable in its fruity ﬁnish and aftertaste.
A complex array of wild cherries, raspberries, garrigue herbs, lightly spiced pastry and stony, chalky minerals. Super-fresh florals. The palate has superb texture, roundness, completeness, depth and detail. Powerful yet elegant with powdery tannins and essence-like red fruit. Super-fleshy, supple and dense core, then strong at the edges. Layer upon layer peels away on the finish.
Farm Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of plum, blueberry, black raspberry and the telltale blackcurrant. The wine exhibits a gentle and judicious use of oak, medium to full body, a lush suppleness, and a deep ruby/purple color. This is impeccably made, well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with elegance yet authority.
This Amarone is deep ruby red, with aromas of raisins, spices, black cherries, and mocha. On the palate, the wine is well-structured, complex, and elegant, with velvety tannins, and a long finish.
