A fantastic collection from the Trust of a Chicago based wine lover who had an eye for all things French. If impeccably stored Bordeaux and Burgundy in their original cases is your persuasion, then you’re in for a treat. All of the wines stored professionally at an offsite location in Chicago.
"I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential, but it appears a decade's worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing, the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals, sweet oak, and spice. A full-bodied wine, it possesses layered, concentrated, sweet fruit, with an elevated level of ripe tannin." (92 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #122, Apr. 1999)
"Aromas of black licorice, currant and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky, refined tannins and a medium finish." (91 pts. JS, WineSpectator.com, 2007)
