The 2016 Pinot Noir La Bauge Au-dessus is fresh, floral and fruity, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. A bit richer than previous years with crushed flowers, sweet red berries, dried cranberry, pomegranate, smoke, and sweet spice are all nicely lifted in t..
Baron de Sigognac 20 year Old is very supple on the nose dominated by impressions of vanilla and reminiscent of brioche. Quite velvety on the palate at the start followed by flavours of violets, prunes, and vanilla. A gentle but long finish evokes liquorice, cinnamon and dried fruit...
