Réserve Merlot 2018

Color of cranberry juice, with a bit cloudy and purple hue on the rim. Nose of ripe sour dark fruits, like sour cherry and cranberry, a bit spice, a bit vanilla, a bit stingy in the nasal cavity, and a bit black tea fragrance. Taste of good quality tannins, good acidity, subtle sweetness, fermented cabbage, some mineral and spice, a bit oaky, and soft with some zest. Aftertaste of some more bittersweetness. On par. — 16 days ago

Domaine Carneros (Taittinger)

Le Rêve Brut Sparkling Wine 2013

Always 100% Chardonnay, the 2013 ‘Le Reve’ is a tour de force from this storied Carneros house. The mousse here is highly refined. Salted biscuit aromatic tones grab your attention with Meyer lemon zest and shades of wild mushroom and toasted hazelnuts all take shape in the glass. The silly mousse is downright incredible. Bright kumquat zest and sourdough bread tones mingle with macadamia nut and suggestions of white truffles on this complex palate. This is salty and savory California sparkling wine at its best. Beautifully textured, with great length, this stunning new bottling will enjoy a very long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2035- 95

Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne 2007

🏅Rating 92/100 (4,2⭐)

I always struggle with rose champagnes. Somehow they don't convince me and almost never justify the price tag. But there are a few which I am satisfied with.

Cuvee Elisabeth is definitely in my top list. Its first vintage is 1988 and was created as a counterpart to another prestige cuvee of the house Nicolas François.

This cuvee is about the elegance and finesse rather than the power. Made of equal parts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir it is blended with less than 10% of red wine from old vines in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ.

Chic rose color with copper hue. Reductive style with a cooler 2007 vintage showing through. Apricot jam, candied citrus, sugar powdered red berries. Delicate bitter cool and dry finish. Disg. in Feb 2019 after spending impressive 11 years on lees. The dosage of 6 g/l is enough to reach the perfect balance.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

Organic Burgundy that has nothing to envy to the prestigious appellations of the region. Very nice plain Pinot Noir; quite light, magnificent texture on the palate, tertiary notes with hints of vanilla, almost caramelized perfectly melted. Super price / pleasure ratio.

Bourgogne bio, générique, qui n’a rien à envier aux appellations prestigieuses de la région. Très beau Pinot Noir nature; assez léger, texture en bouche magnifique, notes tertiaires aux touches vanillées, quasiment caramélisées parfaitement fondues. Super rapport prix/plaisir .
