Château L'Arrosée

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Still quite youthful color and nice, fresh fruit, albeit with a green note (asparagus?) that ever so slightly detracts, but nicely balanced, soft tannins, expecting it to go well with the prime rib I just pulled off the grill!! — 8 hours ago

Barolo Nebbiolo

Paired perfectly with risotto al barolo with truffle and a 64degree egg. The sweetness in the wine matched the creamy feeling off the egg. The fruit leveled with the risotto. Nice!! — 11 days ago

Burgenland White Blend 2019

Wow. I’m more of a red drinker and rarely care for whites, but was craving risotto so needed a decent one. This was a very pleasant surprise. A punch in the nose of honey and sweet lemons, and soon following with apples... even a bit of fresh sea breeze. I thought it was going to be sweet because of the nose, but it’s still a nice dry, round white; barely tart ending. It is exactly what I was looking for to make my meal and I probably can finish the rest of the bottle myself. It pairs really well with my lemon asparagus and chives risotto. The price is fantastic as well. Definitely a keeper and will stock up for future weeknight drinks. — 21 days ago
