  • 2012 Malartic-Lagraviere
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=121228&id=1&___z=OeYs7XhCE1sk%2blAUh%2fz%2f6Q%3d%3d'>2012 Malartic-Lagraviere </a></b></font><br>This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, with wonderfully velvety tannins. Drink it now, or drink it in 25 years. This is a brilliant wine. <br> Rating: 94  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=121228 >Estimated Cost: $31-$74</a>

  • State dinner wines: a lucky 8 for Shinzo Abe?
    <p>There was a state dinner last night at the White House–the eighth for the Obamas–in honor of visiting Japanese PM Shinzo Abe. About 200 people attended, new china was revealed (above), and “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto was in da haus. Recall that Obama and PM Abe ate at the counter of sushi master Jiro Ono […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2015/04/29/state-dinner-wines-abe/">State dinner wines: a lucky 8 for Shinzo Abe?</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
