Vincent Couche

Brut Millésimé Champagne Blend 2010

Bouteille un peu moins impressionnate que la précédente, c’est bien surtout pour le prix, pommes mures, assez frais mais semblait plus évoluée et un brin plus “liquoreuse”. 88-89

Nice with ripe apples, some freshness but this bottle was mot as impressive as the last one, a touch more heavy or liquor feel to it.

Bacharacher Posten Spätlese halbtrocken Riesling 2010

The drier side of halbtrocken. These don’t get enough love in my opinion and that’s just fine by me—they’re still affordable and a relative bargain. Honeyed mango nose, utterly enchanting. Palate is dry, excellent body & long finish. Fabulous. — 4 days ago

Ratzenberger is such a special producer. I remember tasting with him during World Cup 2010 while Germany was playing. Lucky you!

Tinto Pesquera

Reserve Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2010

I love old Pesquera and generally love the range from Joven to Gran Reserva. This reserva Especial wasn’t bad but it wasn’t quite what I was after. It had a taste that was beyond a pleasant anis and seemed more deep and jammy than the stuff I really like from Pesquera. Anyway, not really complaining but it wasn’t as ethereal as I was hoping it would be based on experiences back to the early-1980s, when I was a child. Had it at the Hawksmoor Knightsbridge with a ribeye, asparagus and way-too-buttery mushrooms. — an hour ago

Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

This was hitting tonight. Wow! 2nd bottle in the last couple months both have been magnificent. Really amazing les clos. All the minerality, acid and depth you’d hope for. Dances on your tongue. — 23 days ago

Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

I know I committed infanticide but I wanted to share a special bottle with a favorite cousin who never has an opportunity to drink a wine like this . A powerful , and complex nose of blueberries, florals, and red fruit. On the palate the wine was constantly changing and continuously putting weight on. Deep and concentrated flavors of  plums, chocolate , tobacco and licorice that suppressed the wine’s tannic structure.  — 10 days ago

Fantastic. Love this wine! I quit worrying about drinking a bottle too soon. The occasion is more important and you probably picked up nuances and character in the wine you wouldn’t later.

Larmandier-Bernier

Terre de Vertus 1er Cru Brut Champagne Chardonnay 2010

So delicious and characterful 🍾🍾🥂🥂

Some notes after we visited this Champagne Grower-Producer last fall:

>>>>>>

This is a family-owned and managed winery, responsible for growing all of the grapes used to produce their champagne. 🍇

All of their vineyards are located in Premier Cru and Grand Cru villages within the Côte des Blancs. The Côtes des Blancs appellation is known especially for Chardonnay grapes, which tend to have a lighter, more delicate style of wine. Larmandier-Bernier’s blends are made predominantly from Chardonnay with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier playing supporting roles. 🌸🌸

We had a tour of the cellar and winemaking facilities. Most of Larmandier-Bernier’s wines are vinified in Austrian (delicately toasted) oak vessels of various sizes. 🪵

These vessels allow a little oxygen to interact with the wine, which can enhance richness, development of aromas/ flavors, and complexity. The wines also undergo malolactic fermentation for some of the same reasons, but also to soften the acidity, given Chardonnay is a neutral grape and can have higher acidity in a cool climate like Champagne. 👍👍

The vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically, in fact this family was one of the first to bring biodynamic farming practices to the region after experiencing delicious wines made using these practices from Alsace.

Our favorite wine of the tasting was the 2015, non-dosage, Terre de Vertus - it was so unique; a beautiful wine with a lot toasty, brioche, almond, marzipan, and round orchard fruit notes. 👏👏👏

>>>>>>>>

Now we’re tasting the 2010 Vintage Terre de Vertus and we’re equally enthralled. SO DELICIOUS.
