Asahi Liquor

Domaine Berlancourt

Cuvée Les Champans Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Nose: the freshest grapefruit peel ever. So Floral.

Palate: grapefruit liquor mineral juicy. Wow. Not rose-ish. Vinous. Salty.

Needs an hour to open up. Then it’s maybe the best rose ever.

A must buy. There is no other wine like this.

Long finish.

An iconic rose

We are not into hard liquor, but this was a treat to sip on. Sweet, herbal and layered. New to us and would certainly take another look at this - Sag Harbor..

Hah! @Hanibal I used the term “liqueur” in this context as a simile. Primarily with regards to the weight and viscosity of this tequila. Apologies for any confusion caused.

Château Rayas

Chateau de Fonsalette Réservé Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2004

The ultra rare Cuvée Syrah from Fonsalette and Château Rayas. And here, from the excellent 2004 vintage for Southern Rhône. Rich, intense and still quite youthful. Not all stewy like you can sometimes have with the Grenache. Black raspberries, kirsch cherry liquor, roasted herbs, animale, firm tannins and balanced acidity. Finishes with excellent length and tension. — 5 days ago

Cecilia Monte

Serracapelli Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Note: THIS NEEDS AN HOUR DECANT.

Nose is deep - smells more like high end burgundy. Dark but bright cherries and also that depth you get from expensive burgundy. Deep dense perfume. Cherry flower perfume. Insane. There’s is Nebbiolo spice but is integrated so hard to differentiate from burgundy.

This gets a holy shit!

Palate is intense middle of season cherry fruit. Almost cherry liquor. Some sour cherry. It has that high end combination of dense and intense but acidically balanced fruit. If she had harvested this a day later it would have been too much but as it is it’s perfect. Utterly psychotic. Maximally Delicious.

Finish is so bright it almost lights the palate on fire. Perfect lingering cherry extract. That kiss of perfect but not over the top cherry extract takes this over the 9.5 line for me.

Amazing she got such a great wine in a difficult vintage.

Bought from fass sselctions.
