Ch Haut Queray Bordeaux Superieur 2016 Product #32556 (In Stock)
Ch Haut Queray Bordeaux Superieur 2016 Ch Haut Queray Bordeaux Superieur 2016

Even as 2015 Bordeaux begin to arrive in the USA, excitement is building for vintage 2016.  A wet winter, followed by a dry summer with just enough rain to keep the vines working, delivered wines of pristine ripeness with sweet, supple, tannins, loads of fruit, and unbelievable supple tannins.  As Wine Advocate said in their 2016 barrel tasting summary, “You will love these wines.”

As always, the best thing about a great Bordeaux vintage is how the “little guys” were able to make compelling wines that sell for a song.  Here, three women – Madam Martine Borderie with her daughter and daughter-in-law – have crafted a magnificent, pure, Bordeaux from this 200 year-old Right Bank estate just outside Lussac Saint-Emilion.  It’s 100% Merlot and made without one stick of wood.  But the aromas, flavors, and texture all scream “classic Bordeaux.”  Aromas and flavors of black and redcurrant, sweet spice, and subtle tobacco-like herb jump from the glass and coat your palate in a wine that’s silky through the middle and appetizingly dry on the long, spicy, finish.  Drink it this year with holiday lamb or beef dishes and leave a few bottles in the stylish wood case to develop even more complexity through 2021.

Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Product #32470 (In Stock)
Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015

Dark ruby in color, this Merlot showcases aromas of muddled blackberry with thyme, vanilla, plum preserves, and savory notes of toasted rye bread. The flavors start with jammy blackberry, caramelized vanilla, molasses, and black cherry notes with hints of Herbs du Provence. As the flavors start to evolve and linger on the finish, bright pomegranate, tart plum, American Oak vanilla nuances, and black currants come forth on the palate. Winery Notes

The Fableist Merlot 2015 Product #32152 (In Stock)
The Fableist Merlot 2015 The Fableist Merlot 2015

"Paso" and "Merlot" don't often show up together, but the combination certainly works here!  The ripe Merlot fruit and 45% new French oak give the wine a sensuous plumpness and depth and lots of dark, plummy, fruit.  10% Cabernet Sauvignon adds some red currant, herb and a touch of structure on the long, very smooth, finish.  Delicious all by itself and better still with roasted or grilled beef tenderloin!

Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Product #31650 (In Stock)
Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013

One of owner/winemaker Giovanni d'Orsi's sons suffers from a rare congenital condition called Situs Inversus, in which major organs are inverted, or lie on the opposite side of the body from normal. Giovanni created this wine to honor his son (his fingerprint is on the label) by "inverting" the wine's blend.  Where his normal Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, Inversus is 90% rich, dense, rich, Merlot plus 10% vivid, mouthwatering, Sangiovese, all aged 16 months in 30% new French oak.  Pomerol from Bordeaux - think mouthfilling velvet.  Layers of dark plum, black raspberry, and succulent currant fruit are framed by sweet and sophisticated oak spice.  It’s a bit tight today, but the finish is already a thing of beauty, dry and pure with supple and ripe tannins.  Decant it for an hour now if you like, but it will be best from 2018-2028.

"Lots of spicy, intense and focused blackberry, tea leaf and mushroom character here. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Richer style but characterful. Let it mellow for a year or two. Made from organically grown grapes."  James Suckling 93 points
