Bric dei Banditi - Franco M. Martinetti
Barbera d'Asti is a wine of prestige, rich colours that refer generally to the ruby purple, just what clothes cardinals; the bouquet is ample and composite, with fruity notes of blackberry, cherry, strawberry and red fruit jam and spicy aromas reminiscent of cinnamon, vanilla, green pepper.

The 2006 Bel Air La Perponcher exhibits an opaque purple colour, great fruit, opulence as well as voluptuousness, gorgeous flavor purity, good presence on the palate, and a long, heady finish. Excellent

Cotes de Bourg
In a Dark Mocha silk-lined Gift Box
The 2006 Cotes de Bourg is deep ruby in colour with garnet rim. Some class on the nose, black fruits, leather and white pepper. The palate gives purity of fruit and soft tannins. A very enjoyable and food-worthy claret.

Margaux 3me Cru
Now consistently one of the great wines of the appellation, d’Issan has produced a dense purple-colored wine with a beautiful set of aromatics offering a smorgasbord of aromas such as perfumed flowers, incense, graphite, licorice, blueberry, and black currant. The wine is seamlessly constructed, like a fine dress from a haute couture house. With fabulous concentration of fruit, the ethereal elegance and sublime character of this wine make it seem to almost float across the palate with substantial flavor penetration and laser-like focus. This is a gorgeous example of 2006 that can be drunk in 3-4 years or cellared for over two decades.

St Julien 2me Cru Classe
A 2006 Chateau Gruaud Larose Red Wine
*** 91 Points - Wine Journal ***
"This is an impressive showing for Gruaud-Larose under blind conditions. It has a reserved, cedar, leafy nose with good definition and poise with good lift – very Pauillac in style with the Cabernet driving it along. The palate is full-bodied, very well balanced with good acidity. Firm tannins, ripe and elegant, very well poised on the briary finish. Charming. Tasted January 2010." Neil Martin, Wine Journal.

Champagne in Presentation Case
"The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself in the mouth". The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. "The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea".
ON THE NOSE
The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
THE 2006 HARVEST
The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall.

Belle Epoque Vintage Champagne in presentation case.
Pale yellow with gold hints; notes of caramel, leaves, lightly roasted nuts, apple skin, slight oxidation; on the palate still some effervescence bubbles faded rather quickly, pleasing notes of sour apple, burnt caramel, musty chalk; medium body, good lifted acidity with a slightly rich caramel apple note, long in the mouth. Really nice, excellent condition.
