We are thrilled that Andréane Gornard has agreed to travel all the way from St. Emilion to host an incredible dinner in collaboration with the incomparable French master chef Yannick Cam. The winery has air freighted six different wines all from great vintages for us to enjoy. These are direct from the Chateau so you cannot get any better provenance! We are sure Rauzan Segla and Canon need no introduction. Both have been receiving huge scores over the last few years thanks in part to the hard work of first John Kolasa and now Nicolas Audebert. Both Chateau are under the ownership of the CHANEL group who spare no expense in making sure that some of the best wine in all of Bordeaux is being produced at these two estates. This is a once in a lifetime experience so do not miss it!
Vincenzo Abbruzzese has turned out a magnificent wine in his 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano. Oddly, the wine has a much more subdued color than last year’s opaque Brunello. Richly sumptuous and elegant, it reveals a compelling array...
Blackberries with black truffles and violets on the nose. Full-bodied and very tight with firm, silky tannins that give this wine form and energy. Plenty of compressed and focused fruit at the end. Lots of blue fruit. Drink after 2024.
Attractive cherry and raspberry aromas with citrus fruit follow through to a medium to full body, firm, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
