Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,
WA - Beautiful, elegant red, blue and black fruits (89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot) as well as some graphite and spice notes jump from the glass of the 2005 Lafite Rothschild. Medium-bodied, with superb purity and texture, this is not a blockbuster by any means, but a meticulously made, lovely-textured Pauillac. Long and pure, this wine should drink well for 25-30 years. There is no danger in pulling the cork on it today. Robert Parker eRobertParker.com 19 Jun 2015
WS - Delivers blackberry, dried porcini, tobacco and licorice aromas. Full-bodied, with layers of velvety tannins and loads of dark chocolate, cigar box, currant, berry and mineral.

St Emilion Grand Cru
An impressive effort for the vintage, L'Arrosee's 2005 possesses a medium dark ruby color, a complex, Burgundian-like nose of jammy cherry fruit, sweet, smoky, toasty oak, as well as a touch of cedar. This medium-bodied wine reveals a sweet expansiveness reminiscent of a top class Burgundy. It offers a silky, velvety texture, and admirable complexity and elegance.

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe (in Yquem Case)
Chateau d`Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world. After centuries of family ownership, Yquem was finally sold in acrimonious circumstances to Louis Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy in 1999. However, its former owner and director Alexandre de Lur-Saluce remains in charge. Yquem is located on the highest hill in Sauternes and enjoys the best growing conditions in the whole appellation. The 110-hectare vineyard is planted with 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Only fully botrytized fruit is picked by the 150 highly skilled pickers and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine.

Betsek Tokaji 6 Puttonyos Aszu
Luminous apricot tawny. Apricots and dust and velours on the palate. Very bracing and zesty and one of the first wines in this tasting I have been tempted to swallow. Obviously very high quality. Jancis Robinson
Royal Tokaji now owns 16 hectares of this long established vineyard. Situated to the south east of Mád in Hungary, it produces lusciously refreshing wines that are always in demand. Betsek’s black volcanic topsoil contributes to the mineral and lovely black pepper characters in the wine. Apricot and honey predominate. Betsek is an old Magyar family name and this vineyard produces consistently balanced aszu wines.
