Dear Wine Lover,
Last week we were lucky enough to organise two magnificent Dinner with Château La Violette from Pomerol. All our guest have been blown away by the extreme quality and consistency among all vintages we tasted of La Violette. A great thanks to Henry Parent that explained us in every details the efforts that necessary to create such great wines.
During the tastings, we had the opportunity to taste several vintage from 2007 till 2015 and some characteristics are common to all these vintages, the elegance, the silkiness and deep ripen fruit flavours. It has been such a great success that we immediately sold out all available vintages we had on stock, so we asked the Château for further quantities but they the ycould only offer us 24 bottles of La Violette 2014, all other vintages are completely sold out also at the producer. No wonder if you consider that la Violette is the rarest top wine from Bordeaux with only 250 cases-3000 bottles produced in a year!
However and as said, we were lucky enough and managed to secure only 24 more bottles of the great 2014 vintage which was the favourite wine among the guests present, only after the 2009 vintage of which I sold the last bottles this morning at CHF 580.00 + Vat.
This could be the last opportunity to secure some bottles of the rarest great Pomerol, at the best conditions in Switzerland!
75.0 cl Château La Violette - Pomerol - 2014 CHF 255.00 (CHF 274.65 Vat incl.)
Wine Cellar Insider 95 points: Sexy, silky, and supple, the floral characteristics are the first thing that grabs you, before you notice the wealth of sweet, juicy ripe, fresh plums, dark chocolate, licorice, black cherry and wet earth. Medium/full bodied, with velvet tannins and loads of sweet, ripe, berries and chocolate in the finish, leave you wanting another sniff and sip of this increasingly harder to find Pomerol.
James Suckling 94 points: Complex aromas of blueberries, blackberries and licorice follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory and flavorful aftertaste. Needs four to five years to show you what its got but a beauty already.
