This wonderful wine gift contains two of Mitchell's favorites: Chateau de Lamarque and Domaine Raimbault-Pineau Sancerre packaged in a 2 bottle wooden gift box.
Chateau de Lamarque: Dark, jet-plum velvet appearance that displays pure fruit immediately on the nose. Cassis, berries and spiced, candied fruit with good concentration and an attractive focus, depth and length. Showing a clear energy and intensity at this early stage, the meticulous fruit selection and winemaking has resulted in a wine that really captures the imagination - atypical yet stylish, fresh and pure with a protracted, layered finish.
"A dense, balanced red with plum, chocolate and walnut character. Full body, firm tannins and a velvety, caressing finish. Lovely mouthfeel. Better in 2017." 91 points, James Suckling
"Barrel sample. This is a dark, extracted wine with coffee flavors and dense tannins. The palate has a bitter character to it, and a structure that’s very firm and dry." 90-92 points, Wine Enthusiast
Domaine Raimbault-Pineau Sancerre: Bright and crisp, with sorbet-like grapefruit and gooseberry, and just a hint of fresh herbs. Citrus and exotic fruit aromas. Freshness, crisp fruit and firm acidity are all at play here in perfect harmony. The finish is long and rewarding.
