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.

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.

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.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
A 2006 St Emilion Grand Cru Classe red wine magnum bottle.
Now under full control of the Moueix family, with Christian Moueix's son Edouard managing the estate, and their new technical director Eric Murisasco is making the wine.
In 2006 the Moueix family did not own the estate outright, but did have some influence, and the 2006 is certainly a good effort, with notes of kirsch liqueur, crushed rock, and some subtle herbs. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 05)

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.

Quinta dos Malvedos
in Graham's wooden box
Deep, dark red colour with just a hint of fading along the edge. Gorgeous black cherry and plum aromas, with a wonderful fresh fruit fragrance and distinct notes of eucalyptus and hints of mint and liquorice. Luscious and opulent flavours coat the palate with full, rich blackberry fruit, intense and compact. A supple, muscular wine very pleasurable to drink now but with ample further ageing potential.

The Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2006, was 'declared' as a vintage by the shipper.
Classic power with a lovely violet-scented and peppery nose and delicious layers of opulent blackberry fruit within a finely structured tannin framework that ensures very good aging potential. The hot summer of 2006 has added an additional layer of concentration to the traditional Vesuvio velvety richness and depth. This is a very great Vesuvio Vintage Port.
This most beautifully located quinta (farm), down on the water's edge of the River Douro has been revitalised by the Symington family. This is a major 'house' that continues the tradition of treading the grapes in the ancient stone 'lagares' (troughs).
