Example text

Blin NV Brut Rosé Almost a Strawberry Cup! Drink upon purchase. <85> H. Blin NV Brut Tradition Very rich for weight. This has been a very consistent cuvée for at least five years, but it is always better on foreign markets such as the UK, where it receives extra landed-age and it is obvious that it will go creamy-biscuity. In France, however, this cuvée can be so raw and estery that is sometimes hard to imagine just how good it will turn out to be. French buyers with English tastes should keep well-cellared for at least one year.

Hwy 99W Dundee OR 97115 Phone (503) 538-8520 Fax (503) 538-2055 <87> Argyle 1997 Brut Another Argyle vintage with elevated fruit. Although excellent, neither the 1996 (88 points) nor this vintage are as special as the Argyle's straight 1995 Brut (90 points). If Rollin Soles persists 41 with this lifted style he should release the wine two years younger. Only tip-top acidity has kept this at such a high quality level. Drink upon purchase. <87> Argyle 1996 Knudsen Vineyard Brut The quality and class has been compromised by elevated fruit aromas.

Drink now-2008. 85<90> Bonnaire 1996 Cuvée Prestige, Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Stunningly rich, crisp and vivacious, with intense, zippy-zingy fruit supported by great acidity. Probably has some barrel-fermented content, although there is nothing oaky about this pristine wine at all. My only reservation is a whisper of lifted fruit, which does not affect the enjoyment value, hence the high score, but does make me cautious about its potential longevity. Drink now-2005. 65 <85> Alexandre Bonnet 1995 Blanc de Blancs, Brut Really quite powerful creamy-crisp flavours building in the mouth.
