Pessac Leognan the 2nd wine of Ch. Haut Brion
*** 92 Points - Robert Parker ***
The second wine, the 2003 Bahans Haut-Brion (before the name change to Le Clarence) shows complex unsmoked cigar tobacco notes intermixed with burning embers, charcoal, black currant and cherries in a medium-bodied, fleshy, complex and stunning display of fruit, body and richness. The tannins are resolved, the acidity low and the wine gorgeous now. It should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. There is no reason to defer your gratification with this beauty.

Vintage Port SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl
Vintage or “bottle-aged” ports must receive approval of the Port Wine Institute to declare a vintage of recognized quality. Then, the entire vintage must be bottled between the second and third year. Since it improves in the bottle, it maintains its red color and red fruit flavors. It often takes 10 or more years to smooth the tannins and develop to its full potential, although, today, many consumers forego the complexities of aging to enjoy the youthful robustness of the port in its younger years when it is still opaque and jammy.

Bual Colheita Madeira (H/Litre, 50cl)
Includes Original Gift Box
Golden colour with green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with exotic wood, dry fruits, dates, vanilla, cacau and finetoasted oak. Medium sweet and full bodied, with a long toffee and vanilla aftertaste.
Blandy’s Colheita Bual 2003 was aged for 12 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, wherebythe wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks aretransferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached.

Haut Medoc, 3rd Growth Classification
*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***
Reviews;" The 2003 and offerings from La Lagune are the finest back-to-back vintages they have produced in over fifteen years. Kudos to the Frey family, who also purchased the Rhone Valley flagship firm of Paul Jaboulet-Aine in 2005. Their daughter, Caroline Frey, is the oenologist at La Lagune. The sexy, up-front, evolved 2003 La Lagune exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue as well as big nose of cedar, spice box, black cherry jam, licorice, and smoke. Savory, broad, ripe, and low in acidity, it is a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Enjoy it now or cellar it for 15+ years.
