Chateau Guiraud - Sauternes - 1er Cru

Chateau Guiraud is a Premier Cru Sauternes that is a blend of Semillon (65%) and Sauvignon blanc (35%). Sauternes, made from vines that are subjected to botrytis or "noble rot", are picked when the sugar levels of the grapes reach at least 20 grams per liter of juice. The process of picking and making wines from botrytis grapes is so delicate that some years a whole crop can be thrown away if standards of the winemaker are not met. The 1989 Chateau Guiraud is a perfect French dessert wine from a world class vineyard. Notes of melon and citrus fruit dominate this after dinner delight! Great gift!

Chateau La Becasse - Pauillac - Cru Bourgeios

This 10 acre estate is divided into 22 parcels interspersed among the vineyards of Latour, Pichon-Baron, Lynch-Bages, and Pichon-Lalande. This dispersion protects the vineyard from disease and bad weather. The harvesting must be done by hand since some parcels only have a few rows inside a larger estates vines. 50% Cabernet, 10% Cab franc, 40% Merlot, the wine is aged 22 months in 1/3 new oak barrels. A really delicious Pauillac which I felt was outstanding considering its unranked status (although it isnt cheap). My notes were richness and silky sweet fruit with round luscious barrique flavors. Parker says "I owe a great deal of thanks to Bernard Ginestet, who first told me about this gem, known only to a fiercely loyal group. This Chateau La Becasse is a great gift for any occasion!

Chateau Gleon Montanie "Gaston Bonnes" - Corbieres "Futs de Chene"

The story of Gleon can be traced back to 778 A.D., when Charlemagne created the first Viscount of Narbonne charged with maintaining a defense against the Saracens. Gleon, at the head of the pass, become a major defense line of Charlemagne's Kingdom. This was a family owned land for over 1,000 years until the last Marquis was killed in 1830 and his wife sold the property to the Bonnes-Montanie family who have grown vines on the property since 1853. This lovely dry red wine from Corbieres, which is part of the Languedoc, is well structured and meaty with lush 'blackberry' fruit, aged in oak barriques. This top cuvee from Gleon Monatanie, France, is a perfect gift. CGMC99 CGMC99
