James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2006)
The Grande Dame is looking bright, gently complex and a little spicy in 2006 where the grapefruit citrus is a strong influence on the nose, showing sweet florals, a little honeyed nougat and almond paste. The palate's bright and crisp and really has an air of fleshy depth and refinement. There's also a great warm, toasty finish that displays grilled hazelnuts. Great now through to to 2020 and beyond.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2006)
The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47% Chardonnay and 53% Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling, but also refined prestige cuvée; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality. There are coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended.

James Halliday (JH) : 96 Points (2004)
True to form, Demarville presented this wine first, not last; I have never encountered this approach before, the rationale lying in the complete nature of the wine. A blend of 61% pinot noir and 39% chardonnay from grand cru vineyards, it was disgorged last year, the dosage 7g/l. The fine mousse helps generate beautiful mouthfeel to its array of rounded peach and apple fruit, contrasting notes of cream and mineral dancing through the long travel in the mouth.

The nose of this wine displays an enticing mix of white stonefruits and sweet pineapple with an underlying hint of ginger.  The palate is luscious and flavoursome, again nectarine and peach…

Characteristics of strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb dominate the nose while the palate shows a robust concentration of red fruits as well, all of which complemented by a well balanced acidity. Pairs well with chocolate or chocolate mousse and red fruit based desserts or simply strawberries and cream!

Casa Ferreirinha Reserva Especial 2009
Reserva Especial is a magnificent, mature red wine from the Douro, classic in style, complex, rich and charismatic. It was created more than 50 years ago, and remains one of the main pillars upon which the reputation of Casa Ferreirinha rests. It has few peers.
