Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2005

Whatever you want to call me , Rayas fanboy, groupie, fanatic, I am guilty as charged.
After a night of drinking some very special burgundy and champagne , I pulled this out as the evenings festivities were coming to an end. No decant just a pop and pour . Like a great racehorse it overcame many challenges and handicaps before it emerged victorious . Meteorites of cherry, raspberry and mint assault your nose. In the mouth, pure red fruit is joined by pepper and earth where it all combines to stage a “sit in “ that does not end. A gift from Bacchus

And now Syrah is grown in Germany (not a joke) and soon Grenache in Norway (a joke).

Ira, I am with you. I love Rayas and am fortunate to have a few. The prices, though, are nuts!

Olinger Blanc de Blanc 2020

Einstiegswein für 7,90. Frisch und leicht, muss sich im PLV am Chardonnay aus Frankreich messen 5,50 nach Rabatt und verliert natürlich. Auch gegen Weissburgunderbasis von Dollt im PLV unterlegen. Gleichwohl ein schöner Wein und manchmal muss es Franken sein — 5 months ago

Catalina Sounds

Sound of White Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

I'm glad to share that the new shrine to Bacchus in town has managed to render the New Zealand piece "Sound of White" true to its source material. Truly refreshing in the midst of widespread blasphemy commited by countless so-called shrines in Malaysia, all due to their blatant disregard for the importance of temperature in keeping a piece pristine. Ah, the sweet chord of red pinot fruit, the decay centred around earthy notes, and of course the sharp element that sets the piece in place. I'm happy, despite the rather loud, discordant note of French oak that rang through the piece. Nevertheless, it does not deviate from the composer's intent, which was what mattered most to me on this occasion. — 5 months ago

Fantastic, star of the evening. Meatiness on the start but gave way to a surprisingly clean bottle. — 6 months ago
