The Chateau Clerc Milon 2002 is drinking really well now and received 90 Points from Robert Parker - "Cedar, burning embers, licorice, black currants, and espresso notes jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored, firm, tannic, powerful, and muscular style of Clerc-Milon. Quite virile, a bit angular, but at the same time packed and stacked, full and concentrated."
Dirk Niepoort 's single quinta vintage port is starting to develop really nicely. Wine Magazine in a recent tasting of 2000 vintage ports, wrote of this wine "Ripe, rich, fruity, balanced. There is chocolate on the palate and superb fruit, a nice grip and good acidity".
What better way to cap this all off than with a trophy-winning Grande Champage Cognac. The 2003 International Spirits Challenge awarded the Maxime Trijol VSOP Grande Champagne cognac its Brandy Trophy—ahead of all the XO’s ! A virile, yet subtle cognac. Mellow and rich on the palate, but also fruity. Its length is all but perfect, leaving an amazing lingering finish on the palate.
