Alter Ego de Château Palmer Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

A historic wine. It’s been 200 years since the estate was named after Major General Charles Palmer and 2014 is the first vintage which has been biodynamically farmed, for the first time from harvest not sulphited. The length is quite astonishing for a second wine; but then this has been honed into the Grand Vin style for many years now and has long been one of the top wines in its class.
This is one of the best Alter Ego cuvée since its creation.

Andeluna Altitud Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes used for producing this wine were extracted from the vineyards  located in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, at 1.300 mt (4,300 ft.) above sea level.
This area is characterized by its wide thermal amplitude, which allows for grapes of great intensity in color, an important aromatic expression and great natural acidity.

“It is a sample that shows that Cabernet Sauvignon can be a kind varietal and with its personality. A great wine to accompany meals and that will please men and women”
Manuel González, winemaker at Andeluna.

Binomio Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva DOC

The Montepulciano variety cultivated in the Abruzzi clearly has a Greek/Balkan origin, due to its complex morphological characteristics and its energy. It became widespread in the very distant past, perhaps even in pre-Roman times, when it made its home in the Peligna Valley between the villages of Raiano and Sulmona, which, as history would have us believe, was colonized by Paeligni people coming from Asia Minor or Illyria in approximately the 12th century BC.

Today Binomio means two names: Stefano Inama (Inama Azienda Agricola) and Sabatino di Properzio (Fattoria La Valentina), who first met at Prowein in Dusseldorf in 1997, developed a friendship, along with the idea of producing a great Montepulciano d’Abruzzo together, which was both sumptuous and modern. The project certainly arose from the common passion of the two producers for this particular terroir: Abruzzo is “strong but gentle”: an extremely charming region, but rarely visited.

Cantina di Negrar Amarone della Valpolicella DOC BIO

The Cantina di Negrar brand is the soul of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar and pays homage to the philosophy of cooperative production while also recalling the territory’s historical vestiges: the effigy of St. Mark’s Lion standing tall on a column in the centre of Negrar is testimony of the Venetian Republic’s domination in the sixteenth century. The Cantina di Negrar wines are rooted in the wine-making tradition of Valpolicella and the Veronese wine-growing areas, with a modern reinterpretation to guarantee the best price/quality ratio.
Made from Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grown with organic farming practice in vineyards located in the valleys of Negrar and Fumane.

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.

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 du Tertre Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Château du Tertre takes its name from the superb group of graves, culminating point of the Margaux appellation, on which is erected the castle. This millennial property of 52 hectares (of which 18 are grown biodynamic) enjoys worldwide renown thanks to the prestigious Grand Cru Classé de Margaux title it has had since 1855.
The arrival of Eric Albada-Jelgersma, the current owner, in 1997 will profoundly mark the field. A restructuring program and heavy investments have restored its reputation to Château du Tertre. This program has resulted in upgrading technical equipment, reducing yields and setting up a new team. Under the direction of Alexander Van Beek ,Eric Boissenot for winemaking, the vineyard has significantly increased the quality of these wines, giving Château du Tertre its character and nobility, where silky and freshness are combined to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine.

Château Durfort-Vivens Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Located between the villages of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the vineyard of Durfort-Vivens seats on the ridge of deep gravels. These gravels were brought by the Garonne river in the Quaternary era. This great terroir offers early maturity and allows the Cabernet Sauvignon to fully express finesse and silky tannins, a guarantee of freshness and elegance typical of the great Margaux, also in their second wine Vivens. At Château Durfort-Vivens the constant quest for a natural balance between the vineyard and its terroir is reflected by the use of traditional cultural practices. During the second year in biodynamic conversion, in this 2014 you can be able to observe the balances favored by the vine with its environment in this lovely, elegantly understated claret.

Château Fontesteau Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois

The flagship of the estate, this wine is simply the expression of the best terroir that Fontesteau can offer.
No vintage is ever the same as another. The magic of blending confers a unique style to each: the Cabernet Sauvignon is always the dominant variety in the Château Fontesteau blend, a deep and elegant wine. Château Fontesteau wines are at their best after 5 to 10 years in the cellar yet never disappoint those patient enough to wait 20 years or even more.

“A gift from Mother Nature for my thirtieth vintage” – Dominique FOUIN

Château Talbot Saint-Julien Grand Cru Classé AOC

Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates with Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453.

Talbot possesses an expansive character. It’s never withdrawn into itself and has the courtesy of being in a good mood every day.
