Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 1996

POV: you’ve been asking your dad for 15 years when we can drink this wine and he finally opens it to celebrate your wedding weekend. Golden hue. Lemon, bruised apple, brioche. Soft moussey bubbles, dry and velvety on the tongue. Absolutely AMAZING to drink. — 2 days ago

Billecart-Salmon

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

You already know what it is. There’s not much to even say about it because you already know it’s delicious. Quite delicious. Romance in a bottle? Absolutely. Pale copper with salmon accents and energetic effervescence. The nose features sumptuous cranberries and raspberries, as well as baked apple tarts. Some wild strawberry notes to go with the brioche aromas.

This is no hidden gem of a wine, you’ve all tasted it before and you know how good and reliable it is. A benchmark and always impressive. Pleasing, not racy, acidity and that hard to describe essence of quality. 40/30/30 CH/PN/PM and those red grapes truly shine here. The palate references the nose with more sparkling red berries and autolytic notes. Impressively long finish of pure elegance. Flabbergastingly lovely.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1981

Dark rubi robe with a hint of brick color on the rim, nose of crushed flowers, cigar box, tobacco and blackcurrant, medium bodied, complex, elegant, fresh and balanced, ready to drink but will for sure last a fee decades more. Great bottle and we are happy we bought others :) — 4 days ago

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

The three of us from Omaha were presented this wine upon arrival, double-blind fashion in large burgundy-style glasses. The appearance was a burnished gold color with slight visual signs of gas only when agitated. On the nose, there are signs of oxidization with a slightly cheesy and nutty thing on the nose along with some bruised apple and pear. The palate was like fireworks. Layers of fruits, nuts, spices and the creamiest of textures. At first, based on the smell and the appearance, I thought this might be a vintage Champagne, 1996 or even possibly 1990. However, after tasting it, I was compelled to shift direction as it reminded me of some of the more remarkable NV wines made in a solera-style like Bereche “Reflan d’Antan” or Selosse “Initial”. Welp…basically nailed it. How I wish this wine could be in my life more often. — 17 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend 2002

my, my, but this is nice. Citrus and even some red fruit, peach, very very elegant and refined, it’s got great density, a lovely wine. It’s very tranquil, if that makes any sense. — a month ago

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

Absolutely stunning. Hallucinatory fruit. Poached pear, baked green apple, stewed quince, nutty flavors, toasted poppy seeds, grains, and just a beautiful savory finish that is so persistent. Very long, and then a high tone perfume sneaks in. Peony and exotic flowers peek through on the finish. — a month ago

it is indeed beautiful and so hard to keep one’s hands off. Shame that it shot up to $300+ . . . great stuff.
