Château Haut Tropchaud 2011, Pomerol
This wine has intense flavours (black fruits, blackcurrant) and is a perfect blend of great finesse and powerful body. Haut Tropchaud is a well-balanced wine with a very good ageing potential. The perfect alliance of great finesse, soft elegance, generosity, power and fruitiness is rare and delicious.
Merlot, old vines (70 years).
Winemaker and vineyard: In 1987, Michel Coudroy bought this small vineyard of 2 ha from the Mathias family. It is located between the prestigious grounds of Trotanoy, Petrus, Certan and Le Pin but has never been officially classified. Although, its wines have always been among the best Pomerols – in 1929, they were classified as 1° Cru. The vineyard consists of old Merlot vines.
Tasting: This pure Merlot is characteristic by its finesse and elegance. Only a few wines combine strength and fruit so perfectly, which makes it a very balanced wine. The old vines (up to 70 years) and the vinification in new oak barrels make it a wine of high quality which can be kept for 15 to 20 years.
Service: Serve it at a room temperature of 16 to 18°C with grilled or roast beef; always good with fine cheese.

The nose offers scents of blackcurrant, violet, cherry-red sweet.
Floral notes, ripe red berries, milk bread and cocoa wrap around a neat, long and elegant palate. The wine is harmonious, long and powerful but too very balanced. A lots of finesse. This is a really great vintage.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Meyney features baked cherries, mulberries and plum preserves on the nose with hints of smoked meats and black olives. The palate is medium-bodied, firm, grainy and a little tart with good fruit expression and length. robertparker.com

Clairette de Die is a fruity, light and sweet sparkling wine made in the Rhône Valley with the grape Muscat following the traditionnal Méthode Dioise. It is the same used for the spumante d'Asti on the other side of the Alps which is a méthode traditionnelle. The Clairette de Die has less alcohol (only 8%).
Lovely rounded honeyed, slightly buttery nose with touches of white peach and white flowers. Very well balanced, great tension and weight in the middle. Honeyed fruits, mango, peach, a touch of brioche and quince. Complex and displaying some admirable levels of botrytis, the finish is viscous and very focused. Great length. Superb.
The red Château Carbonnieux is the smooth result of an excellent blending of grape varieties from this region. The tannins are well balanced and silky in harmony with red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry…) and reveal toasted notes from ageing in the finest quality French oak barrels.
