An undertone of salty minerality and a complex creamy palate are supported to the end with a mouthwatering acidity.” Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies

DOMAINE MARC MOREY PULIGNY – MONTRACHET 1er CRU ‘LES REFERTS’ (France)92 Points “ Here too there is a mild touch of reduction that does not materially detract from the very ripe pear, white peach and apricot aromas. There is impressive opulence to the plush, round and sappy flavors that enjoy excellent mid-palate concentration that end in a textured, intense and well-balanced finish that delivers strikingly good length. I also like the lovely complexity and overall, this is a relatively refined Referts ” -Burghound

SPARR PINOT GRIS GRAND CRU MAMBOURG (Alsace, France) (sw: 02) – “In light golden yellow this Pinot Gris Mambourg embodies the opulence of the gold autumn of the year 2006: in the smell excessively and fruity, it reminds of ripe quinces and pineapple, juicy apricots and aromatic foliage, as well as lemon peel, hazelnuts and a touch of broom flourish.
In the palate as well full-aromatic this drop seduces with a lot of extract, a dynamically racy body, meanwhile the fine ripe sweetness match very well with the delicate fruity acid. Completes with a long spicy aftertaste this wine probably belongs to the best what this vintage can offer!
