98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Even better than last year, the recently bottled 2017 Cote Rotie La Cote Blonde was singing when I tasted it back in July. Floral and berry notes accent mocha-tinged aromas in this medium to full-bodied wine. It's silky, long and intense, with a couple of decades of life ahead of it. It's simply difficult to describe the waves of savory complexity this wine now shows, coupled with a succulent texture and tremendous length." - Joe Czerwinski (19th Dec 2019)

90-92 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A different form of reduction is present here though the effect is the same in that the nose cannot be properly evaluated. The detailed, pure and energetic medium-bodied flavors possess good intensity before terminating in a saline and ever-so-slightly rustic finish. The tannic spine is well-integrated and this should amply reward mid-term cellaring yet be approachable after only 5 years or so of bottle age." - (Jan 15, 2014)

94-95 Points - James Suckling:
"A classic beautiful wine with strawberry and hints of minerals. Full-bodied, layered and firm. Wonderful depth here." - (16 Jun, 2015)

93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots atypically has one of the more reticent aromatics from Etienne Grivot, sultry and brooding at the moment. With aeration there is a lovely pastille scent emerging as some kind of recompense. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins and a silver thread of acidity. This is very elegant for a Suchots, more reserved than its peers, but at the same time very focused and pure with just the right amount of reserve to beg another sip on the finish. Excellent." - 216, The Wine Advocate (29th Dec 2014)

94 Points - Antonio Galloni (2006 Vintage):
"Bara's 2006 Brut Grand Cru Comtesse Marie de France, 100% Pinot Noir, is superb. Ample and creamy on the palate, with terrific freshness and overall intensity, the 2006 is incredibly expressive today. Hints of lemon confit, chamomile, dried herbs, yellow orchard fruit and dried flowers all grace this exquisite, inviting Champagne. The 2006 has enough pedigree and class to drink well for another decade or more. I loved it. Disgorged: March, 2018. Dosage is 8 grams per liter." - Antonio Galloni (Nov 2018)

94 Points - Tim Atkin, Master of Wine:
"Described by Fernando Buscema as a “classic vintage”, 2017 produced some very good wines in Mendoza. This blend of Malbec with 33% Cabernet Sauvignon from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley is typically fine and elegant, with subtle wood, graceful tannins and a lingering finish."

91 Points - Robert Parker:
"Approximately half of the volume of the 2017 Amancaya matured in oak barrels, and the other half was kept in concrete vats for one year. This comes from vineyards in Altamira, and the barrels used for the élevage are mostly in barriques produced by Lafite that have a very light toast, with the idea to preserve the aromatics of the wine and let it breath and provide structure in the élevage without interfering with the aromas. The oak is very nicely integrated and folded into the fruit, and the wine comes through as quite pure and fruit driven, with moderate ripeness and a harmonious palate. This was born as the classical second wine in a Bordeaux sense. This wine is sold in Argentina as Petit Caro. It was bottled in December 2018."

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Barolo stands on firm ground thanks to the dark and savory qualities that lift heavily from the bouquet. This wine is saturated and rich with dark aromas that are firmly stitched together with spice, licorice and pressed blue flowers. There is power and richness at the deep inner core of this wine. It will unfold and become softer with time (perhaps five years or more)." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Leading off the three 2014s and almost as good as the 2015, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Winston Hill Red Wine (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot) boasts a deep purple color and full-bodied, opulent aromas and flavors of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, licorice and toasted spices. It’s a big, ripe, sexy wine and I almost wrote “fruit bomb”, yet it has a terrific mid-palate, notable tannin, and is going to age gracefully." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/29/2017)

About This Wine:

The fruit is harvested by hand. The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When finished the wine is pumped to the barrel cellar. Here it is transferred into oak barrique, between 50% and 100% new for the grand vin, Chateau Léoville-Las-Cases, depending on the vintage.


Ratings & Reviews:

98 points Decanter
"1989 was an early year, with flowering three weeks ahead of usual. Now at 30 years old, a floral aspect curls out of the glass, with touches of roses and peonies, followed on the palate by bilberries and blackberries, with a cigar smoke and eucalyptus finish. It's still vigorous in its tannic structure, but it's soft and supple enough to enjoy today. This bottle was recorked by hand at the winery last year, with five people checking every single one of the 5,000 bottles remaining at the chateau. The wines were topped up from magnums of the 1989. 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend - a variety not used in the grand vin since 1996." (JA) (11/2018)
96 Points - Wine Spectator
"Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular." (JS, Web-2010)

Jancis Robinson - 17.5 / 20 Points:
"
Brick red. Lots of mushroom and leaf mulch on the nose and palate and still a lovely fruit sweetness even if the primary fruit has gone. Extremely fine grip to the tannins, still has perfect balance and lots of youthful energy even with the mature flavours." (JH) (2/2019)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A touch old-school, featuring savory, tobacco and rosemary accents amid a core of concentrated black cherry, red currant and plum paste flavors. Slightly austere, with chalky minerality harnessing the finish. A savory edge peeks in at the last second. For fans of the style. Best from 2022 through 2035." - JM (Issue Web Only - 2019)

"A rich rosé Champagne, offering seamlessly woven flavors of baked black cherry, candied pink grapefruit peel, brioche and pastry cream. Vibrant acidity and a finely detailed mousse send this dancing across the palate. Drink now through 2024. 10,000 cases imported." - AN (Dec 15, 2019)
