2009 Brunello di Montalcino, IL Poggione

Il Poggione is a winery steeped in history with its origins dating back to the late 1800s. Owned by Leopoldo and Livia Franceschi , it is situated below the beautiful hilltop town of Sant’Angelo in Colle, a part of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation characterised by a temperate, yet well-ventilated micro-climate. This benefits the grapes by maintaining refreshing acidity levels and extending their ripening time. In the best vintages the wines demonstrate extraordinary development in bottle. Even better, prices have remained very reasonable, considering the superb quality of the wine. Poggione’s straight Brunello is one of the most fairly-priced, cellar worthy wines of the appellation. This is a benchmark property for fine, traditionally made Brunello capable of ageing superbly. GALLONI-92pts -Il Poggione's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a bit of a bruiser today, but it is also one of the few 2009s that is built for the cellar. Smoke, new leather, liquorice, spices, scorched earth all wrap around the palate in a dark, voluptuous Brunello with plenty of intrigue. This is one of the richer, more intense wines of the year, but all the elements are very nicely balanced. Antonio Galloni - vinousmedia.com WA- 90/100pts- The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a supple and immediately inviting Brunello that is packed tight with ripe fruit and jammy background notes of sun-drenched raspberry and strawberry. I also made note of the alcohol in my tasting note that I later saw registered at 14.5%. The wine picks up momentum in the mouth where it boasts impressive and compelling textural richness. I am an enthusiastic admirer of Il Poggione’s 2008 and 2006 Brunellos, but 2007 and 2009 both seem riper and more immediate. It will be interesting to see how it fleshes out over time.

Chateau D'Issan Margaux 3eme Cru 2004 x 2 Btls

The first known reference to Issan dates back to the 12th century when Guyenne was occupied by the English. In the 17th century, the Chevalier d'Essenault, Counsellor to the Parliament of Bordeaux, ordered to raze to the ground the old castle and the current building was erected. Furthermore, d'Essenault gave his name to the estate, which became shortened to d'Issan. In the 19th century things improved for the better. Château d'Issan was listed as a prestigious Third Growth in the famous Classification of 1855. It was Issan's crowning glory to be served at the wedding of Eleanor of Aquitaine to Henri Plantagenêt in 1152, as well as being chosen for the Prince of Wales's cellars in 1723. The wine of Issan also became the favourite of the Emperor Franz-Joseph (1830-1916) of Austria, acquiring the proud motto: "Regum Mensis Aris Que Deorum" (For the King's table and altar of Gods). Just before the First World War, Issan's recognition declined, until Mr. and Mrs. Cruse, grandfather of the current proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, purchased the property in 1945, which at that time had only 2 ha of vines. Wine Advocate-Parker : A beautiful effort that is a model of elegance and symmetry, this 2004 d'Issan possesses a dark ruby/purple colour as well as floral, raspberry, cherry, and blueberry aromas interwoven with notions of licorice and toasty oak. Beautiful ripeness, medium body, and a delicate integration of tannin and wood result in a pure Margaux that should be at its peak between 2009-2020+.En savoir plus
