don melchor 2006...
95 points RP wine advocate / jay miller
don melchor is the flagship red of Concha y Toro, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that is an Icon of Chile's wine industry. This is a wine that will, without any doubt, age so very, very well. With an alluring bouquet of toast, cedar, mocha and black currant this voluptuous wine is so incredibly well balanced that it will provide hours of pure pleasure now, and improve over the next fifteen years.

93 points RP wine advocate / robert parker
you can feel the rock & roll of this delicious Napa red. Its melodic-like notes of charcoal, black currant and berries will keep you humming to the lyrics of earth, cassis and smoke. A deep, opulent full bodied Cabernet possessing overt correct purity and length. It will drink well now and hold for 15 or more years.

heidsieck & company monopole champagne...
91 points wine spectator & 77 of ws top 100
the aromatic zest and pear profile of this broadly satisfying sparkler is reminiscent of a cult 'grower' champagne. the notes of toasted brioche and apples are classic. with its long, silky finish this is as elegant a champagne as you can find at any price.
