Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
Scintillating nose; absolutely gorgeous aromas of vanilla-smothered berries, violet, and a fine, earthy, truffly quality with hints of cedar, coffee and spice. Deep and deliciously inviting. The palate lets this stunning first impression down slightly, with slightly under-powered cherry and blackcurrant fruit. There's a background of sweet oak, and good freshness with balanced acidity and fine tannins.

Chateau de Beaucastel Pierre Perrin
Château de Beaucastel has long been considered one of the great wines of France. It is unanimously renowned for its balance, elegance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an extraordinary terroir at the Northern end of the appellation with heavy exposure to the Mistral. All 13 varieties of the appellation have been organically grown here since the sixties.
1990 was a fantastic year for Rhone Wines and the Beaucastel has striking colour. The nose is profound and sweet, with black truffle, under-wood, and earthy notes. The mouth is fruity, fleshy and round, with soft tannins. It can be drunk but will improve with time.

Porta dos Cavaleiros
Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character, …

Since the beginning of time, people have been saying that nectars belong to the Gods, however, the strong will, the experience and the long tradition of the Oliveiras family, have accumulated nectars for more than a century and are available to the connoisseur.
This is Madeira Wine.
Intensely rich nose and a full rich mouthful of raisins and caramel, a powerful long finish and finely balanced acidity belying its relative youth.

Breathtakingly beautiful, with superb definition, depth and purity to its rich, textured mousse. It provided yet another reminder of just how much Champagne excels.

La Grand Dame, Vintage Champagne
Yellow/gold in colour. Aromas of pears, apples and toasted brioche. Very lively, fine mousse. Ripe, complex, medium-bodied fruit in the mouth with great depth and length. This is a great, mature Champagne and it was a joy to share with good friends. CellarTracker

La Grand Dame Rose , Vintage Champagne
"Salmon-orange with a pale rim. Deep, smoky aromas of strawberry, pear cider, cinnamon, earth and maple syrup. Very rich in the mouth, but also shows excellent verve for a wine with such volume; superripe flavors of strawberry, rose petal, iron and earth. In texture and size, this comes across more like a red wine than a rose Champagne. Spicy finish is long and gripping."
