Rave Review: eRobertParker.com on 2008 Clos Figueras Priorat Red – 94 Points!

WINERY PROFILE | Clos Figueras “The 2008 Clos Figueras is more deeply colored with an already complex aromatic array of smoke, minerals, incense, lavender, black cherry, and blackberry.

Rave Review: VinousMedia.com on 2008 Clos Figueras Priorat Red – 92 Points!

WINERY PROFILE | Clos Figueras “Opaque ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berries, incense, graphite and smoky herbs, with a sexy floral nuance gaining strength with air. Juicy, penetrating and mineral-driven, with very good depth to its raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Leaves sappy floral pastille and spicecake notes behind on the very…

Rave Review: WineSpectator.com on 2007 Chateau Brondelle Classic White – 91 Points!

WINERY PROFILE | Chateau Brondelle “A great deal on a spiffy sauvignon from Bordeaux. Shows a brisk, almost riveting nose of green pepper, chalky minerality, lime and pear. It’s light to mid-weight, brisk, racy, elegant and fine with a dry finish. Some telltale Graves pine and minerality on the finish. Excellent length. Best 2009 to…
