The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France?s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.
"A dessert wine with sweet vanilla flavors, wrapped around nutty, oily flavors. Fruit is not the object here; it?s more decadent, with unctuous, sweet and lingering vanilla and Bourbon-barrel accents."?(91 pts.)
