Top Picks from Vintages' November 6th Release
Henriques & Henriques Single Harvest Madeira (Portugal)
$23.95, 500mL bottle, #713073
All too rarely do we see a vintage dated Madeira and what a bargain
this one is! Amber-brown in colour with a rich nose of fig, walnut and
toffee; full on the palate with spicy, toasty flavours with a driving
spine of acidity that prolongs the figgy taste.*****
Château d'Angludet 1999 (Margaux)
Dense purple black in colour with a nose redolent of cedar and red and
blackcurrants; medium-bodied with dry, savoury taste spun out with spices;
great structure and breed, a classic claret that will hold for another
Charton & Trébuchet Meursault 2002 (Burgundy)
Grab this while you can; the company, unfortunately, has declared bankruptcy.
Straw coloured with a minerally, apple nose; medium-bodied, firmly structured
with a crisp green apple flavour, well balanced by a subtle use of oak.
