This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain well-balanced wines with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Valpolicella zone can provide. Notes: Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes. Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance.

Marchesi di Barolo
This 1983 Barbera del Monferrato has a deep ruby hue and a bouquet of ripe plum and cherries, often piqued by a hint of black pepper. Barbera-based wines are known for retaining a balanced acidity even in warmer vintages, making them an ideal partner to tomato-based dishes. These wines are lower in tannin, making them more approachable in their early years. Barbera from Monferrato differs from that made in Asti or Alba in both its provenance and style. Where Alba and Asti produce strongly structured wines, their Monferrato equivalents are more aromatic and often a little less robust.

Du Chateau Lacaze , Vintage Armagnac (Price includes a dark mocha leather effect gift box with silk liner as illustrated)
Thick and exotic nose with rich vanilla notes, lavender syrup, marzipan coated stewed apples. Sweet orange cordial and Jaffa Cake jelly.
The palate is filled with plenty of floral notes (lavender) but after this has subsided there is a smooth spice and rich dark chocolate and cherry note like eating a huge chunk of Black Forest gateaux. With its depth of floral flavour this can best be described as a gentle giant.

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 96 points Robert Parker ***
*** 96 Points Wine Journal ***
"As I have noted consistently, this can be a breathtaking wine, but having tasted it close to a dozen times since the last edition of this book, over half the bottles were marred by tainted corks. In fact, one would almost wonder if there was TCA problem in part of the wine storage area. The percentage of corked half-bottles is even higher than in the regular format. However, when clean this 1983, which has seemingly reached full maturity far faster than I would have guessed a mere four years ago, has a dense, murky plum/purple color and a gorgeous nose of smoked herbs, …

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 91 Points - Robert Parker ***
*** 94-96 Points - Wine Journal ***
Reviews: "Evolving in a positive fashion, 1983 is turning out to be a fine vintage for Mouton. Although not a big wine, this medium-weight Mouton displays an attractive nose of blackcurrants, black-cherries, olives, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin in the finish, as well as beautiful elegance and complexity, this wine is close to reaching its plateau of maturity. I have always thought it resembled this property's 1966. It should last for another 20 years. Last tasted, 7/93." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1993
"Dense cedary nose with lots of plum, cassis and cigar box aromas.
