A superstar of this great vintage, one might have to return to the prodigious duo of 1959 and 1961 to find a La Mission with this much potential. Super-intense and unctuously-textured, with a sumptuous mid-palate and finish, this is an explosively rich, layered effort that possesses everything I could ever want from a terroir that has given me as much hedonistic and intellectual pleasure than any other wine in the world. It is an amazing achievement for administrator Jean-Bernard Delmas, his son, Jean-Phillipe, and the entire winemaking team. The phenomenal aftertaste goes on for over a minute. - Robert Parker

Probably the finest white wine to come out of Italy, Gaia & Rey from world class producer Gaja, displays a creamy texture highlighted by a refreshing and lasting acidity. Awesome.
