Rosé Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

9.2

We’ve had their N/V Blanc but, haven’t had their Rose in awhile. Quite good.

Mousse is very refined. Great mouthfeel. Blood orange, tangerine, rhubarb notes, poached strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rind, white spice, oyster shell, grainy chalk, grey volcanics, saline, dry yeast, baguette crust, mint with pink roses dominate with shades of red roses. The acidity is lively. The finish is, pleasantly rich, elegant, well balanced & polished persistent for minutes falling into minerals & spice.

Their rosé, in the right base year, can be spectacular!

Cuvée Terroir Chinon Cabernet Franc 2017

Ripe red fruit nose of raspberry, cranberry, and tart cherry with classic cab frank green bell pepper notes. Grippy tart red fruit on the palate with cinnamon and cedar. Medium alcohol, medium tannins, and high acid, with the bell pepper lingering in the finish. Tart and rustic, bring on the croque monsieur. — 6 days ago

Domaine Saint Préfert

Collection Charles Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015

Intens nose of black forest fruit and garrigue. Full bodied with lots of fruit and sweet ripe tannins. Long aftertaste. Still young but excellent after some breathing time. — 8 days ago

Blanc des Millénaires Champagne Chardonnay 2006

🏅 Rating 94/100 (4,4⭐)

This is my first encounter with 2006 Charles Heidsiek Blanc des Millénaires⁣

I'm a big fan of 1995 which I tasted numerous times before. ⁣

My impression of 2004 was quite mixed. I did see the signature CH style to it, but I would prefer to keep it for a minimum of 5 more years in the cellar. I thought CH really rushed with it into the market.⁣

2006 release followed right after. I was even surprised why did they release it so soon. ⁣

I think I get the idea now. 2006 has everything you want. It has the ripeness of the fruit you expect from the warm vintage. Acidity is just right there. ⁣
Reductive style Chardonnay and signature popcorn flavour. Toasty and rich on the palate. That's exactly the blockbuster BdM we were all waiting for.⁣

So let's enjoy 2006 for the next 5 years till 2004 riches its full maturity!⁣

This champagne, along with their Brut Reserve and Rosé reserve, are among my favorites at the price point. Their rosé reserve is pretty close to this, and if you can find their Brut Reserve in an older disgorgement, they can be stunning.

Royal City Washington Syrah 2015

The battle of the Syrah versus the Shiraz. This time Shiraz from Torbreck won (the Factor). The Royal City Syrah was just as complex but the bold fruit and its sweetness were hiding some of the underlying earthy and mineral notes. Almost a bit out of balance. Still really good and made us fight over the last drop with our friends. — 3 days ago
