Sommelier's Notes

Browse through and learn what happened during different wine vintages. A useful resource for hunting down that rare bottle or a birthday-year wine for a loved one’s special day.


Although individual vintage reports are still being written, some key vintages of the past 40 years have region-specific reports. Every vintage page from the most recent to the oldest has detailed charts showing production by region and the most popular, best, most expensive and cheapest wines of the vintage currently listed.


The nose is fruity, gourmand, relatively rich and intense. It reveals notes of blackberry, chocolate and slight notes of strawberry. The palate is fruity, gourmand, relatively fat and offers minerality, a small freshness, a small tension as well as a nice silky and layers of concentrated, soft, velvety fruit . On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and slight notes of blueberry associated with touches of Zan (fresh liquorice aroma) as well as small notes of chocolate and minerality. Tannins are fine and well built. Good length.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 16 - 18 C. Good match with grilled red and white meat, and meat with sauces

Avoid preparations with vinegar or hot spices, and prefer cheese like Swiss cheese
