Producer: Ferdinando Principiano
Principiano Langhe Nebbiolo comes predominately from a small 40 year-old hectare of Nebbiolo vines in the Le Coste di Monforte vineyard and a small portion from the Boscareto plot of Serralunga. The depth, richness and detail Principiano is able to coax from these vines is impressive.
Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is one of the most important Super Second, in the best years, it is one of the most exotic and voluptuously scented wines of Mèdoc.
Producer: Pessac Leognan
This is one of the surprise sleeper wines of the vintage which has more successes than many people suspect in spite of all the rain. The tremendous drainage enjoyed by the Haut Brion vineyard worked in its favor during this wet September harvest.
