"Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Devise d'Ardilley was the winner of the Coup de Cru Bourgeois that I judged at Vinexpo in June. Here, it justifies that << coup >>. It has a lovely, beautifully defined bouquet with pure dark berried fruits intertwined with marmalade and orange rind. Sheer class. The palate is beautifully balanced with superb acidity. Very vibrant, very composed with a sensual, caressing finish worthy of a Grand Cru Classe. Outstanding for its class." ~NM

"There is certainly more consistency to be found and for all those disenfranchised Bordeaux-lovers who vowed never to buy Claret again after facing escalating prices. I would urge you to consider some of the rich pickings to be found. These are wines that are a fraction of the price of the top names, these are wines that are physically available and these are wines that at best, give the Grand Cru Classe a damn good run for their money. I have listed the Cru Bourgeois that I scored above 90-points below all come highly recommended." ~Neal Martin

Brought Me Back To Bordeaux - I've been trying them all at this price point. 2009 and 2010. Didn't understand the hype. All the 90+ ones to me were...Meh. I'm a guy who bought the big boys back in the 90's when Latour was $100 and Cos $35. This little guy is pretty good. I'm impressed. Bought some..now sold out. Empire needs to work on that. Pushing a wine, then poof..gone. UPDATE..Empire came through with more in stock. Great Job Empire.
