An indulgent rich aroma jumps out of the glass followed by a voluptuous palate with a thick layer of glycerol. Jammy cherries are accompanied by smoke and vanilla from toasty oak. The fleshiness of the wine carries the oak and produces a fine early drinking Clos Fourtet. Final blend is 87% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc.

I tasted the 1998, alongside the 1996 and was surprised to find myself preferring the 1998. A vivid and lively champagne, the 1998 Krug was remarkable approachable. The typical notes of brioche, white apples and apple strudel on the nose followed seamlessly onto the palate. On the palate layer upon layer of flavours ranging from crisp apples to roasted hazelnuts and minerally chalkiness gently developed into a noticeably long finish with a touch of smoke. Very impressive.

In the last post , I ran through some of the things you need to be think about as a brewery expanding into new markets. Let's review:

Trademark Issues

Pre-COLA Product Evaluation and Certification of Label Approval ( COLA) submission (especially formulation!)

State brand and label registrations

State permitting

Entering into trade agreements with distributors

I want to pause at this last point. Breweries need to be especially concerned with …

Overview by Martin Wilson, Account Manager - Press

An annual newspaper subscription would make an excellent Christmas present would it not? Perhaps not the most exciting thing to unwrap on Christmas morning but who could fail to be charmed by the printed product dropping through the letterbox every day from Boxing day? Judging by the November ABCs, nobody would get all that excited.

Only two of the national daily newspapers recorded month on month increases in November. Unsurprisingly

…well as ripeness without over-maturity. The core flavour is blackberry with notes of cassis and red plum. The tannins are abundant but are fine-grained so do not come across as austere or aggressive. There is a textural richness on the mid-palate which is rewarding and although the wine will undoubtedly age very well for several years it is soft enough to drink now. Decant one hour before serving, and try with beef or lamb.

We always know that when we visit Ch. Palmer, even with difficult growing conditions as in 2013, we will be presented with a wine full of Palmer typicity - Poised, plush, sweet, elegant and ethereal fruit. The palate is medium bodied with a lovely swathe of cassis and blueberry fruit throughout the mid palate. Plush and well integrated tannins take the length through to an effortless conclusion with a cooling acidity. A generous and yet balanced Palmer, plush and velvety.

As a Damien Hirst creation, Le Petit Mouton shows an extravagant flamboyance yet is clearly the product of meticulous precision. In many ways it defies the vintage with swelled, glossy rich notes of ripe fruit and glacied cherries fill the mid palate with surprising generosity and a persistent finish. The halo effect of the Grand Vin bestows this second wine with the quality of a second growth.

The vineyards of Ch. Marquis de Terme are located in the prime locations of the villages of Margaux and Cantenac. Classified as a 4th Growth in the 1855 classification, the 2005 Marquis de Terme is a tremendous effort from this estate. Beautifully aromatic on the nose of classic Margaux notes of pencil shavings and pure red fruit follow onto the palate. Delicious now and over the next few years.

Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

There is a record amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this year and it has helped to create a lovely expression of Ch. Giscours. There is a good balance, a touch of sweetness, ripe engaging fruit and superbly integrated tannins. The length is really enjoyable too.
