This type of sherry is characterized for having a distinguished quality and can be described as an exceptional Oloroso. The characteristics of Amontillado and Oloroso are combined; while being a full-bodied wine like an Oloroso, it offers the delicate and sharp nose of an Amontillado with a dry palate. Bright mahogany colour; this wine has strong aromas of hazelnuts and a slight fragrance of oak together with a dry, balanced, elegant palate that is very persisting. Palo Cortado is an outstanding example of a rare and old style of sherry. Wine type: Very Old Palo Cortado VORS (Very Old and Rare Sherry; certified by the...

Made by the esteemed Frederick Burrier of Domaine Beauregard, one of the most prestige producers in the area. The label Joseph Deshaires is named in honour of Frederic's grandfather. After a slow process of pressing and must settling, this Macon-Villages is mostly vinified in temperature controlled vats and ages quietly for at least 8 months on fine lees. A well made and very elegantly styled Macon Villages, with more complexity and weight than normally found in this appellation. Easily mistaken for a Cote de Beaune classic like a St Aubin or Savigny.

But there is no mistaking Cabernets blackcurrant scent or the ability to produce wines of great longevity. Like many monarchs, Cabernet Sauvignon is thick - skinned, providing all the character of colour, tannin...

It brings instant pleasure and a smile, for the rose petal aromas are so lifting, so pure and delightful.
A wonderful expression of Andre's sensitive handling of fruit (and of biodynamic viticulture perhaps).
It recalls the Edwardian scented soaps of Floris, Jermyn Street, while the medium bodied palate is as clear as a mountain burn, so juicy, yet dry even at 35 grams of residual sugar - the biodynamics accentuating the minerality and acidity of the wine to balance out the natural grape sweetness, and rendering them incredibly drinkable.
