Critic Notes

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. 60% new oak. Very dark in fruit character and just a tiny bit jammy on the nose. Not unripe but not doesn’t quite sing either. Firm grippy tannins and a dark almost salty minerality on the palate. Dense and rather austere in style. FINE+RARE

Score: 16.5-/20FINE+RARE

Plenty of juicy blackcurrant fruit and background oak are present in this plump, medium to full-bodied, ripe, well-made wine. Not nearly as tannic as I feared, this wine shows a forward plumpness, excellent purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Apr 2015, www.robertparker.com

Score: 90-/100Robert Parker

So said Rhone expert Jeb Dunnuck on release of the 2016 vintage. The names Isabel Ferrando and Saint Prefert have indeed become synonymous with Southern Rhone of the highest ...

A Trip to Armagnac Part 2: Baron de Lustrac & Domaine Notre Dame de Bouit
Armagnac Baron de Lustrac Despite Mother Nature providing virtually everything necessary for producing a singular and remarkable spirit, market forces seem intent on keeping Armagnac off the centre stage: a spot it rightly deserves! A sheltered existence geographically coupled with a lack of business savvy has, for many centuries, meant it never quite achieved the same global acclaim that ...
