Our 2015 Pinot Noir reveals itself in elegant turns-from vibrant red cherry raspberry and juicy dark plum to hints of sun-warmed red rose petal and fragrant oak spices.

AALTO RIBERA DEL DUERO [Spain]

"Climatic Conditions: The winter was cold and rainy but spring was fortunately mild and the shoots appeared at the end of April a little earlier than usual but having avoided any frost damage. May and June were warm but not in excess reaching a maximum temperature of 29o °C allowing for a progressive and even development of the vines. The summer months were perfect with a high interval of temperatures between day and night - an important quality factor in our region- and by mid August with the beginning of veraison we began to suspect we were heading for a great year. Septembers early rains were very beneficial and we began to harvest grapes of exceptional quality on the 22nd. In no hurry at all and at a very comfortable pace we finished on October 13th.

"The Chateau Gris castle was built in the 18th century in the middle of its 3.5 ha (8.6 acre) walled vineyard. After the vineyards were destroyed by phylloxera the roof of the castle was covered with grey slate although tiles are the traditional material used in Burgundy. The people of Nuits-Saint-Georges therefore began to refer to it as Cha teau Gris (grey castle) and the name stuck. Further to a court ruling in the 1920s the name "Chateau Gris" was allowed to prevail over the name of the place (lieu-dit) "Les Crots" where the vines are planted. The vines are planted on terraces that cling to the slope at an altitude of 280 metres.

Following fermentation the wine is racked into 60 gallon medium toast French oak barrels for 24 months inside the stone winery and caves thus achieving richness of color and the softening of tannins of this vibrant and youthful varietal.

The NV Grand Cru Cuvee 1911 emerges from the glass with the most haunting of perfumes. Sweet rose petal and jasmine are some of the nuances that emerge over time. Despite recent disgorgement the purity of the fruit and the extraordinary elegance of the mousse are hard to miss. This is an exceptional elegant version of the 1911 that should drink beautifully for years to come. The bottle I tasted needed quite a bit of air to open up so readers should be patient with the wine at this stage. The current release of the 1911 is 100% Pinot Noir 50% 2002 vintage and 50% a solera blend that dates back to 1998. This is Lot L05 disgorged October 4 2010 and bottled with dosage of 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. This is another strong set of wines from Andre Clouet.

They were meticulously hand sorted on a shaker table then destemmed into 2- ton open top stainless steel fermenters.

It is meant to offer a consistent flavor profile from year to year and generally offers plenty of character as well as spice.

A 15-day maceration on the lees took place in stainless steel vats at 30°C. The must was then transferred into concrete tanks to complete fermentation over 2 months. Malolactic fermentation occurred.

The wine is made from a blend of several different vineyards: Les Communes Les Saules and Les Bossieres. The soils of these parcels are all very similar- clay and lime mixed with marl- and all enjoy a full eastern exposure. The average age of the vines is about 50 years old. The fruit is put in tank without any crushing. A cold soak follows then the alcoholic fermentation takes place with very little intervention with pump-overs and punch-downs as needed. The wine is then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (70% one-year-old 30% new) for malolactic fermentation and aging.

2014 was another excellent vintage for Cabernet in Napa Valley. When you work with some of most renowned vineyards in the Valley the result nears perfection. By blending in a little Sangiovese and a splash of Petit Verdot we have heightened the aromatics and created a truly unique wine that Cabernet devotees as well as those who appreciate "artful" blends can enjoy. Dark black fruit and leather aromas reinforced with elegant oak features dominate in the first waft from the glass. This wine exhibits a deep and full-bodied build with an exceptionally long yet elegant finish. Most noticeable in our signature blend are the fine silky tannins of the Valley floor. Good acidity with strong tannic structure leads us to believe this wine will age incredibly well for the next 10-15 years.

BANSHEE ROSE [United States]

In 2015 we found some fantastic new Pinot Noir vineyards in Mendocino that enabled us to stick to our high standards for crafting high quality rose. While many wineries treat their rose as a fun side project we invest just as much energy into making ours as our other wines. With Pinot Noir we prefer using 100% whole cluster press - not saignee - to capture the grapes natural bright and pretty aromatics as well as a sense of refreshment.

BANSHEE SAUVIGNON BLANC [United States]

As is our custom our newest Sauvignon Blanc comes from a combination of vineyards in the Russian River and Dry Creek valleys just outside ofour home base in Healdsburg CA. These areas are perfect for the style of Sauvignon Blanc we are inclined to - a combination of sufficient daytime warmth to develop exuberant fruit flavors and plenty of morning/evening coolness to preserve lip smacking structure and vital tart and green-tinged flavors. In addition we like to utilize the charms of the musque variation of Sauvignon Blanc to highlight the lifted perfume and floral aspects it brings. About 30% of this wine is powered up by musque (think X-Men). After tasting many of our friends 2016s in tank and barrel it seems to be the year of a pronounced melon character in Sauvignon Blanc.

BIELER ROSE PROVENCE [France]

THE VINTAGE In 2016 a quite cool spring and early summer eventually gave way to a very hot and dry July and August. Temperatures dropped back down by early September allowing a long and gentle last bit of ripening making for an incredibly long and drawn out vintage. Though the drought kept yields very low (about 12% down) the resulting 2016 wines are excellent. There is a rare combination of lovely flavor development with loads of natural acidity - the best of both worlds in my opinion. THE REGION As the oldest wine growing area in France and the worlds largest rose specialty region Provence is the gold standard in rose. There are 8 different appellations in Provence but only 3 that you need to know: Cotes de Provence Aix-en-Provence and Bandol.

BREZE CREMANT DE LOIRE ROSE [France]

History: The towering regal Chateau de Breze just outside of Saumur is not only a UNESCO World Heritage site but also historically an important reference in fine French wine. Lauded by King Rene Anjou in the 15th century classical literature the Chateau de Breze wines were regarded with such esteem that the royals exchanged them annually with the great Sauternes of Chateau dYquem. The vineyards belonging to the Chateau de Breze entered a Renaissance of their own in 2009 when Count de Colbert conferred upon Yves and Arnaud Lambert management of the viticultural estate. The father and son team have immediately converted the entire 25 hectares to organic methods with official certification as of the 2012 vintage. This movement stems first and foremost from the desire to express each individual Clos in its purest most vibrant form. Terroir: Breze is a unique site due to its relatively high elevation and emin

BROADBENT - VINHO VERDE [Portugal]

Bartholomew Broadbents deep roots in Portugal inspired him to create his own range of table wines. His vision was to produce the most reliable and traditional of all Vinho Verdes and to resolve the usual whine that Vinho Verde never tastes like it tastes in Portugal. The solution was twofold: to partner with a winery that had consistent production and to ship the wines in refrigerated containers. The latter enable the wine to taste as fresh and spritzy as it would ever taste in Portugal and since its launch in 2005 Broadbent Vinho Verde has rapidly earned the reputation as one of the fi nest Vinho Verdes. TERROIR: Vinho Verde Portugals largest wine region stretches from the Spanish border to south of Oporto. The soils are acid-rich and granite-based with areas of schist or slate and clay.

BROADSIDE PASO ROBLES CABERNET SAUVIGNON [United States]

Broadside produces wines focused on purity and true varietal expression. Our winemaking favors a natural approach in that our wines are minimally handled to best express the grape site and vintage. The 2015 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a vintage marked by frost wind drought and the resulting record low yields from our vineyards. So low in fact that we elected to use all of the fruit originally intended for our vineyard designate and Ephemera bottlings in this 2015 Paso Robles Cabernet. Low yields of flavorful fruit produced a serious concentrated yet still elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresh boysenberry peppercorn and sweet tobacco notes highlight ample fruit in the nose complemented by subtle notes of toasty oak vanillin and cigar box. Cassis green olive and fresh berry acidity greet the palate with an underlying current of fine tannin coalescing in a dry persistent finish.

The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre Pouilly-Fume and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire. The domaine is spread across eight communes. These diverse holdings give the Brochards a range of soils. Terres blanches or Kimmeridgian marl gives powerful wines. Silex or flint yields wines with a strong mineral character and chalky caillottes bring attractive aromatics to the wines.

The juxtaposed topography of steeply sloped hillsides with eastern exposures against very gently sloping hills with southern and southwestern exposures hints at the tumultuous geologic past of the Estate; extensive faulting resulted in at least three distinct soil types. Not surprisingly grapes grown on the different soils give different characteristics to the finished wines; these differences are often as great as the differences between various Bordeaux varieties and allow us to blend within the variety of Cabernet Sauvignon to craft a truly multi-faceted Estate wine.

Amicone is obtained thanks to a unique blend of selected grapes cultivated in the Veneto region. This blend is made with grapes such as Corvina Rondinella e Molinara which are the typical varieties cultivated in this region. Some grapes undergo the particular process of overripe in the vineyards instead and the fermentation in stainless steel tanks follows. Only authorized red grapes from Veneto are used and a part of them goes into a slow maturation process in tonneau. This is the secret for obtaining this vinous soft and well balanced product with hints of spices and chocolate. Before bottling the blend remains in stainless steel tank for a certain period of time.

CARPANO ANTICA SWEET VERMOUTH [Italy]

In Torino 1786 Antonio Benedetto Carpano invented the commercial model for what we know today as red vermouth possibly even coining the term "vermuth." The Carpano brand was formalized some years later by Carpanos nephew. The red vermouths of subsequent producers such as Cinzano and Gancia were their own riffs on what Carpano first successfully marketed. Today production is in Milano Italy. 16.5% ABV Antica Formula is a highly-regarded product first introduced in the 1990s. Antica Formula is an example of the vermouth alla vaniglia style: a red vermouth with added vanilla flavoring and sugar to balance. Note: Antica Formula is based on an old recipe but it is not Carpanos original vermouth recipe.

"2012 was characterized by difficult weather conditions in the Bordeaux region. After a relatively mild winter the spring was mostly wet and rainy especially April with a hail storm on the 24th. Such conditions hampered fertilization leading to fears of reduced yields. Work in the vineyard was as vital as ever. June and July alternated heat and humidity. The weather became more stable from the beginning of August enabling the healthy grapes to finish ripening in good conditions. Nevertheless there was considerable variation in their degrees of ripeness and a great deal of sorting work was carried out by our teams from the end September.

The sweetness is in balance with the low alcohol (5%) and acidity never too high but that gives the product a pleasant freshness. It is vinified exclusively in steel tanks." - Vignaioli di S.

The palate is well balanced with fine grainy tannin a little foursquare on the entry but plenty of fruit backs this up.

"The signs of a great vintage: The 2015 vintage started under "classic" winter conditions with the climatology (temperature and rainfall) close to the seasonal average. A mild spring allowed for even bud burst the first factor in the homogeneous development of the vine this year and a balanced and quick flowering. Ideal climatic conditions in summer: The summer saw particularly hot and dry weather. On the great terroirs of Beychevelle the vine found the ideal conditions: water stress on deep soils thus preserving good freshness. The rains in August favoured a quick and even veraison and also the thickening of the skins and an increase in their tannin content. The ripening of the grapes reached optimum levels thanks to sunny weather conditions at the end of August and beginning of September.

"2011 one of the hottest years on record The weather was very warm and dry during the first part of the 2010-2011 growing season until June. High spring temperatures stimulated phonological development which was ten days ahead of the previous year. Although veraison in the first berries took place very early ripening was slow due to dry weather. However the cooler and wetter summer months reduced water stress in the vines. The harvest began on September 14th. There was no rush during the 12-day harvest because the weather was very fine during the latter part of September. The grapes were in excellent conditions thanks to the careful work in the vineyard all year long and a meticulous sorting of the grapes.

The summer was beautiful sunny very dry and temperatures were close to normal. However the severe drought slowed down the maturation which then presented various stages of achievement. In spite of imperfect harvest conditions bunches remained healthy and grapes in vats were very sound thanks to a great care and sorting out in the vineyard and at reception of the crop. It is great satisfaction to have been able to maintain this quality by choosing vineyard options with very moderate protection including in 2012 a significant part of organic management.

CH CANTEMERLE HAUT MEDOC [France]

"TASTING NOTES 2015 It would be difficult to find a more classically Medoc wine than this great Cantemerle with its sustained power and refined elegance. A very deep color and subtle aromas underscore its youth. Once in the mouth this rich and full-bodied wine releases notes of coffee olives and licorice which are emphasized by an opulent and harmonious length. A fine wine which marries fullness and delicacy while avoiding heaviness and excessive oak. Its the perfect expression of a balanced Bordeaux which gives voice to a great terroir. This wine has a promising future and already offers great satisfaction with all meat and poultry as well as alpine cheeses.

"TASTING NOTES 2011 This stunning vintage has been somewhat overshadowed by the quality of the two preceding years but is now being discovered for its flattering character. With its beautiful deep color and discreet spicy aromas this wine shows a stunning youth firmness and complexity. Decanting before service will reward one with fine aromas of coffee cedar and black currant which will allow it to perfectly accompany an omelette with wild mushrooms or a variety of French cheeses. However theres no rush: this wine will continue to age well in a good cellar.

CH CARBONNIEUX BLANC PESSAC LEOGNAN [France]

Chateau Carbonnieux white is a legendary wine. It is said that in the 18th century it was introduced to the Sultan of Constantinoples palace because of its clarity and was called "mineral water from Carbonnieux" thus defying the Islamic law. The clay-limestone of Garonne gravel found in the Pessac-Leognan Appellation certainly produces the best dry white wines in the Bordeaux region. When young Carbonnieux white wines are delightfully refreshing and pure with a fruity floral intensity. When mature they develop hints of dried and candied fruits giving scope for a large range of gastronomic pairings. The batches which will form part of this "cru classe" will be blended so as to induce an excellent complicity between the grape varieties. The chosen Semillon grapes will add structure to the liveliness of the Sauvignon grapes by giving them roundness and volume on the palate. Wine and food pairing : ra

Flowering began with the Merlot from May 29th to June 2nd closely followed by the Cabernet Sauvignon. High temperatures and almost no rain in June favoured pollenation and the formation of fine bunches of small grapes promising a magnificent crop. A heat wave in July interrupted vine growth but came just at the right time. Overcast skies and cool temperatures in August helped ripen the grapes and maintain a satisfactory level of acidity and good aromatic potential. Two weeks of beautiful weather at the beginning of September (37-38É¿C) were extremely beneficial and tests in the vineyard indicated alcoholic and polyphenolic levels identical to those of 2004 and 2005.

History: The origins of Chateau Haut Batailley are very recent as the vineyard only go back to 1950 when the Chateau Batailley was divided by its owners Marcel and Francis Borie who had bought the estate together in 1929. Chateau Batailley was named after the lands in which it is located and the battles that took place there during the Hundred Years War. The estate was divided as follows: Marcel Borie kept the Chateau the buildings and the heart of the vineyard. Francis Borie obtained several plots that were assembled to form Chateau Haut Batailley and the vineyard "La Couronne". Initially the Chateau Haut Batailley did not have any cellars and the wine making was done at La Couronne. Today Francis Xavier Borie is at the head of the vineyard which was classified 5th Grand Cru in 1855. Soil: It is composed of large and deep gravel.

2012 was characterized by difficult weather conditions in the Bordeaux region. After a relatively mild winter the spring was mostly wet and rainy especially April with a hail storm on the 24th. Such conditions hampered fertilization leading to fears of reduced yields. Work in the vineyard was as vital as ever. June and July alternated heat and humidity. The weather became more stable from the beginning of August enabling the healthy grapes to finish ripening in good conditions. Nevertheless there was considerable variation in their degrees of ripeness and a great deal of sorting work was carried out by our teams from the end September. ASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING): The nose is closed at first then the fruit is expressed with a slightly dominant woodiness. On the palate the texture is tight and dense.

The 63 millimetres of rain which fell in September are sufficient to start the evolution of the noble rot. The sorting begins on 19th September and then all goes fast. Mists in the morning and warm weather in the second part of the day help the development of the botrytis cinerea. High yields with grapes of great quality and consequently juice with irreproachable aromas. Wine tasting notes: Golden yellow in colour.

The coolness at the start of spring resulted in slow growth. From May onwards the year was marked by monthly temperatures that were well above seasonal norms enabling the vines to catch up. Beautiful summer weather arrived and was only interrupted by a few stormy periods in July which did not enable the soil to replenish its reserves. This deficit increased in August and September. Shortly after veraison began the vines suffered significant levels of stress. Very dry conditions in the first half of September resulted in the concentration of the already small berries.

The summer was magnificent with well-above average temperatures in July and light showers just when they were needed creating conditions in which the vines were able to flourish. A very hot August was followed by a superb September. Some rain arrived just before the harvests allowing the grapes to reach a perfect state of ripeness and making this a truly exceptional vintage.

2011 was a curious year with a remarkably warm and dry spring. Consequently flowering took place early and in fine conditions. July was cool and saw some rain while August was mixed cooler than average overall but with some heat spikes and some storms. September was warm and dry enabling the grapes to ripen fully. Harvest began at Chateau Lynch-Bages (almost a fortnight earlier than in 2010) on September 12th and ended on September 28th. Equipped with a new de-stemming system and an optical sorter a complementary reception chain was tried out receiving exclusively the harvest from plots deemed the most difficult or the most heterogeneous. After two powerful sunny vintages 2011 is outstanding for its display of well ripened fruit fine plump tannins and a good freshness to ensure classic balance. - Chateau Lynch-Bages

The draconian selection - a little less than 34 % of the harvest in the first wine - can for the most part be explained by the heterogeneity of the 2012 vintage which is mainly due to the hydric stress experienced by young vines and sensitive terroirs. How disappointing not to have been able to add this fabulous plot of young 13-year-old Cabernets which had done so well in 2010 and 2011 to the first wine! But how wonderful to see our greatest plots of mature vines reach such heights of concentration and elegance! The Cabernet Sauvignons (87% of the blend) are remarkable: powerful dense full-bodied and refined. The two usual batches of Merlot (10%) as well as the small batch of Cabernet Franc (2%) that usually join them didnt fail but arent better than in 2011.

CH PHELAN SEGUR ST ESTEPHE [France]

"While the month of September proved to be changeable it was the search for optimum ripeness that decided the calendar for picking; the Merlots were picked over a period of 11 days. The decision was taken to wait for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the result was convincing. At this stage it is possibly the best Cabernet Sauvignon ever harvested unique for its concentration intensity of flavour and the quality of its tannins. The 2015 vintage was marked by the first crop of Petit Verdot. This gives us hope for very good potential in the years to come and it will be included in the blend for Frank Phelan. The family acquired the Comptoir du Caviar and inaugurated Les 110 de Taillevent in London. 2015 also marks the familys 30th anniversary at the head of Phelan Segur." - Chateau Phelan Segur *92-94/100 Wine Enthusiast *93-94/100 James Suckling

CH PIBRAN PAUILLAC [France]

"Pibran is an old Medoc name. Its highly reputed vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac. The estate which originally had only just 10 hectares was expanded in 2001 following the purchase of neighbouring property chateau Tour Pibran to reach the current size of 17 hectares of superb Garonne gravel soil. The attractive little charterhouse built in the 19th century can be seen as one leaves Pauillac toward Cissac perched on a little hill surrounded by a tree-shaded garden. For a long time it belonged to the Billa family who sold it to AXA Millesimes in 1987. The vineyards were restructured shortly after the purchase and drainage was improved in order to get the best possible effect of the soil on the wine. Today Chateau Pibran is carefully made by Jean-Rene Matignon and his team at Chateau Pichon-Baron in their state-of-the-art winery. The wine is aged at Chateau Pibran. The wines benefit from except

CH PUYGUERAUD BLANC COTE DE FRANCS [France]

Chateau Puygueraud is produced mainly from Merlot with however a proportion of Cabernet that is quite high for the region as well as a touch of Malbec with its peppery character. In 2005 all the Cabernet Sauvignon was pulled up and Cabernet Franc was planted in its place. This variety ripens earlier and is better suited to the terroir of the Cotes de Francs. The Cuvee George is produced in small quantities and without being a "prestige" cuvee is a nod to George Thienpont who appreciated cabernets and malbec. Unusually it is a blend of 35% Malbec 35% Cabernet Franc 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon thus giving it great individuality of expression at a time when many wines seem to becoming more and more similar in style. Chateau Lauriol is principally the second wine of Chateau Puygueraud made from the younger vines on the property. - Chateau Puygueraud *93-94/100
