Andeluna Pasionado Cuatro Cepas

The four grapes (”cuatro cepas”) used to make this red wine come from vineyards located at an altitude higher than 1,300 meters above sea level.
The designated places, discovered by their unique identity, are divided in small plots that give the wine personality, sophistication and elegance. These plots are of low yields and each of the varieties participating in the coupage have been vinified separately.
This wine represents a poetic way of seeing life, honoring the soil, the height, the Andes and the Moon.

Blason d’Issan Margaux (Château d’Issan GCC 2nd wine)

Blason d’Issan, Château d’Issan’s second wine, was introduced from 1995 onwards to enable selection amongst the vines growing in the Margaux appellation area. Made from the younger plots (around 18 years old), it respects the identity of its terroir, while offering a tasty round fruitiness, which can be enjoyed earlier.

The harvest in 2016 was very similar to that of 2010, but volumes were higher, clearly a vintage with outstanding balance.

Cantina Tollo Gufo Merlot

In central Italy there is fossil evidence of grapevines dating back two million years, but the first traces of agricultural activities oriented to grape cultivation itself date back to the end of the Bronze Age. In Abruzzo, the first evidence of wine production stretches back in pre-Roman times, with funerary pottery unearthed in the monumental cemeteries around L’Aquila.

In ancient Rome, an owl was the soul bird of Goddess Minerva.”Gufo” stands for Owl, the mysterious night creature moving at ease through the dark, in all times symbol of knowledge, wisdom and prophecy.

Château Cantelaudette Cuvée Prestige Rouge Graves de Vayres AOC

“I inherited Château Cantelaudette in 1984, I was thirty years old and married in the same year. The property was not really a wedding gift: the house and vines had been abandoned and there was no winery. However, my wife, when she saw the old château, thought that it should be our home. Starting from scratch, we refurbished it to our taste, replanted the vines according to expert recommendations, and built an operational winery to produce a wine under the Cantelaudette label. Without my wife, Laurence, I never would have had the courage to undertake this adventure. I make wines for her and which reflect her… refined, elegant, balanced, rounded, and with a certain complexity.” – Jean-Michel Chatelier, owner and manager of Château Cantelaudette.

Located in the southern part of the Bordeaux Medoc peninsula, Château Cantemerle, designated a great growth in the famous 1855 classification, thanks to its unique terroir, produces complex well-balanced and refined wines.

The 2014 Cantemerle has a conservative, cedar and graphite-tinged bouquet, medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, leading to a slightly chewy finish that will hopefully evolve more nuance and personality with time.

Château Cantenac Brown Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

At the beginning of the 19th century, John-Lewis Brown (1769-1851), bought a vineyard and designed in the village of Cantenac, a traditional Tudor style château, reminding him of his Scottish origins. His name is forever linked to the Grand Cru Classé. After the 1855 Grand Cru Classification, Louis Armand Lalande (1820-1894), Bordeaux winemerchant and owner of several estates in Médoc, extended the building. Surrounded by a remarkable British style park, Château Cantenac Brown is since then among the most original in Médoc and of the wines to watch out for, getting better vintage after vintage.

Château Chasse-Spleen Moulis en Médoc Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel AOC

Château Chasse-Spleen is the leading Moulis estate along with Château Poujeaux. Although it is classified only as a Cru Bourgeois, it regularly outperforms many of the Médoc’s more renowned classed growths. There are numerous stories trying to explain the name of Chateau Chasse Spleen. The first version is that the name was inspired from a visit by Lord Byron in 1821, which was so moved, that he quoted, “Quel remede pour chasser le spleen”, which when loosely translated means, “What remedy to remove the spleen?”. The other equally poetic explanation is attributed to the poem Spleen, whose author Charles Baudelaire also visited Château Chasse-Spleen.
A very elegant, fresh and classical wine with a lot of energy and drive on the finish with great aging potential.

Château Cos Labory Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé AOC

Past Château Lafite, then up the small hill of stones, the locals call “Caux”, to Cos d’Estournel and its discrete neighbour Château Cos Labory.
The name of the estate comes from its geographical location on the Cos hill and the name of François Labory, who was the first owner until 1845. Mr. d’Estournel then acquired it before selling it again to an English banker, Charles Martyns in 1852. The property was finally taken over by George Weber in the 1930’s, who bequeathed it to his daughter and son-in-law, François Audoy in 1959. In 1971, the couple acquired the neighbouring estate, Château Andron Blanquet, until their elder son Bernard took over, now the emblematic symbol of the estate, having always lived in Saint-Estèphe.
Over time, the changes came gradually through substantial investment into technology, particularly an ultra-modern vat house and a new cellar. Having decided to vinify the wines at low temperatures to preserve and extract the fruit, their aim is to offer wines that age well but are also enjoyable when still young. Château Cos Labory combines characteristic Saint-Estèphe vigour and elegance and its rich tannin content gives this wine good ageing potential.
