The Cognac Brugerolle House creation dates back to 1847 by Etienne Brugerolle. Today, Mister Claude Brugerolle, 5th generation and vice chairman of the CDG group is perpetuing 160 years of tradition. Its intense and deep amber colour is a sign of its strength. Its flavours of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long ageing process.

St Julien, 2eme Growth Classification
The Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou is one of the Medoc's more successful wines, the 1993 has reached full maturity. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, and a moderately attractive nose of minerals and jammy cranberry fruit intermixed with black currants. In the mouth, this wine has lost its baby fat, revealing medium body, and an elegant, measured personality. Pure, with well-integrated tannin, this is a stylish, graceful Ducru-Beaucaillou."

Armagnac is a grape brandy produced in the Gascony region of south-west France, as it has been since at least the 15th century. A fuller-bodied (some would say rustic) style of brandy when compared to Cognac, it is only distilled once and is often aged for many years (decades in some cases) and makes an excellent digestif.

Pommard 1er cru Rugiens, Aleth Leroyer-Girardin
An elegant nose of deeply pitched red berry, plum and floral aromas are quite earthy with notes of jerky, herbs and a sauvage hint that continues onto the delicious, powerful and full-bodied flavors brimming with an intense minerality on the seductively detailed, pure and lingering finish.

Marques de Villamagna, Gran Reserva
Magnum 1.5 lt
The 1993 Rioja is an excellent old Rioja. Spices, leather and truffle nose. Cinnamon and smoke on a very fresh palate.
Price: £99.00 (1 in Stock)
Comtes de Champagne Rose
The 1993 Comtes de Champagne (original release) comes across as a touch fat and lacking freshness. Truffles, autumn leaves and mushrooms are some of the tertiary nuances that emerge from this mature Champagne:

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
A terrific wine for the vintage, Latour's 1993 reveals an opaque purple color, a backward, cedar, black walnut, cassis, and earth-scented nose, medium to full body, gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, moderately high tannin (but no astringency), and a sweet, long, powerful finish. The wine does not possess any of the vegetal, green pepper characteristics of the vintage, nor any hint of hollowness or harshness. This wine may prove to merit an even higher rating. Is this vintage the modern day clone of the 1967 and 1971?
