Bordeaux

Château LEYDET-VALENTIN  Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014

“Direct, with dried red currant and plum fruit, stitched with cedar details and backed by a light savory hint.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017

L'Eclat de VALENTIN  Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014

“Shows a slightly taut edge, with dried cherry and plum fruit stretching out over a cedary spine, backed by a light tobacco hint on the finish. Fleshes out a touch with air, showing a fresher edge to the fruit.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017

 

Rhone

AURETO  Ventoux "Maestrale" 2014 - 88 pts

“Very fresh, with a pure beam of violet and plum notes racing through, picking up a light lavender echo on the silky finish. Charming.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017

AURETO  Vaucluse IGP "Tramontane" 2014 - 88 pts

“Dark and ripe, with a hefty edge to the currant, plum and tobacco notes. Toast and licorice root accents add to the bass line. Delivers more guts than purity in the end.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017

 

Loire

Fief du CHANT BARON  Muscadet Côtes de GrandLieu sur Lie "Vieilles Vignes" 2015

“Direct, with good peach, herb and sel gris notes that mingle through the finish.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017

Domaine des HERBAUGES  "Luminescence" Brut NV - 88 pts

“Has a broad feel, with hints of butter, pear and piecrust. The mousse has a racy edge that lends spine and balance.” – JM, Wine Spectator, Web Only 2017
