60% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Muscadelle. This wine is known primarily for its stony soil composition and fresh minerality.

Chateau Clarke 2009 (E. de Rothschild): $ 27.00
We are all amazed to find such quality at that price for a 2009 Bordeaux Vintage. This is a true Listrac-Medoc, soft, gentle and floral. The nose exudes cherries and black licorice. On the palate it comes out plumpy, soft and spicy with a warm feel. Greta balance between tannins and freshness. A great achievement (Gault & Millau, 2009)
Chateau Meyney 2007 Saint Estephe Cru Bourgeois: $ 39.00
61% Cab,26% Merlot,10% Petit Verdot, 3% Cab Franc. Chateau Meyney is one of the most ancient wine growing estate whose vineyards were already producing wines for a monastery back in 1662. Typical of all great Saint Estephe wines, the color is very dark and the wine can appear to be rough and rustic when young. However with time it becomes generous and charming. This 2007 is superb, very pleasant already. Notes of wood are noticeable however, aromas of fruit balances them out to deliver an harmonious wine
