Az. Agr. Sella
(DOC since 1979). Bramaterra is almost the only DOC of North Piemonte covering various comunes: it is produced in Masserano, Brusnengo, Roasio, Curino, Villa del Bosco, Lozzolo and Sostegno. Before the Second World War production volumes were higher than Barolo – only Roasio used to have 300 hectares and Bramaterra´s total might have been more than 2000 hectares.. It is one of Piemonte´s most curious wines: extremely difficult to find, but when you find a bottle it is always great!

Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe
91 points Wine Spectator
Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. (3/2003)
Medium ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, toasty oak and musky espresso on the nose. Sweet, dense and pliant, with a layered texture and considerable early appeal. Lush but nicely delineated. Finishes with ripe tannins and lingering flavours of dark berries and espresso. (6/2001)
Price: £59.95 (10 in Stock)
*** 93 Points Robert Parker ***
"This is the finest effort I have ever tasted from this estate. It possesses great intensity, an inky purple colour to the rim, a tremendous nose of minerals, white acacia flowers, creme de cassis, and black cherries, with some licorice, vanilla, and smoke in the background. It is truly great stuff, although I would not push its ageing capacity beyond 10-12 years. This intense, full-throttle offering is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc." Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Medoc Cru Bourgeois
91 points Wine Enthusiast
Under any new classification, this should certainly be a classed growth. Today it is among the leaders of the crus bourgeois. The 2000 is opulent, generous, stylish. The tannins are ripe and sweet, the fruit is finely balanced. (RV) (6/2003)
91 points Wine Spectator
Very muscular with currants, mineral and nutmeg character. Full-bodied and chewy, with a long and lively finish. (JS) (3/2003)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A classic, muscular, rich yet elegant effort made in a medium to full-bodied, concentrated style, the 2000 Chasse-Spleen possesses abundant quantities of minerals, earth, black cherry, and cassis fruit.
Price: £49.95 (6 in Stock)
Good colour, great legs and nose. Quite nice when opened. Perhaps a trace of liquorice and a hint of 'medicinal' character but these initial characteristics soon faded.
After 3-4 hours - quite rich and aromatic with good cherry fruit and a touch of maraschino at the end. Tannins have integrated completely. Excellent with roast sirloin. Cellar Tracker Review
