All wines were blinded. Dinner was preceded by a mini promenade of premier cru poured mostly from magnums. Many thanks, Sir K ..read more

It was back to Bordeaux and Bordeaux-blends for the usual suspects at Imperial Treasure Great World on 08 April 2024. While the wines were not as old as some of the best examples of mature claret that we’ve had in the past, the line-up that evening was drinking superbly across the different vintages. Nevertheless, evident ..read more

Distant complex of green fruits and almonds with lifted floral scents, leading to rounded tones of fig and dense citrus laced with refreshing crisp acidity, its vigour tempered by slightly darkish undertones. Excellent. 2015 Lamy-Pillot Le Montrachet ..read more
