News from Denmark

Our Danish importer just let us know that the magazine Penge & Privatokonomi (a Danish business magazine) selected Domaine Calvet Thunevin “Les Dentelles” 2003 as one of the 10 most “prestigious” wines of today out of 24 wines tasted blind by a panel of consumers and experts (sommeliers, journalists).

Here is the list of the 10 most “prestigious”

1)Baileyana Grand Fire Peak Pinot Noir 2004
2)Cannubi Boschis Barolo 2001
3)Mar. di Villamarina 2000
4)Veenwouden Merlot 2000
5)Fess Parker Rodneys Vineyard Syrah 2002
6)Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Binomio 2002
7)Domaine de Charbonnière 2003
8)Domaine Calvet Thunevin Les Dentelles 2003
9)Via Manent 2003
10)St. Andrews Wakefield 2001

In addition from being tasted blind, each member of the panel had to give a price for each wine (price they are ready to pay) and a price of $70 was given to the Cuvée Les Dentelles. One of the member of the panel even quoted $110 per bottle!
Our importer is, of course quite pleased, so as we!
