Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

26 degrees rainy evening in Singapore! Fresh lively citrus champagne and a hint of pandan. Went Super well with black pepper and deep fried salted egg crabs, local Singapore style of course! If only Winston Churchill did the same. — 3 years ago

Edelzwicker Gewürztraminer Blend 2017

Central Coast. Blend of Gewürtztraminer, Riesling and Muscat. Pale yellow white. Some floral character in nose. Crisp, some sweetness, wood, spice and orange-lemon floral flavors. Overwhelmed by the South Indian curry we paired it with, but tasty on its own — 4 years ago

Central Coast Dry Gewürztraminer 2021

Still loving the crisp varietal expression in a tropical flavored but dry style. Good for sipping or food. A touch woody to my taste, perhaps acacia, but highly drinkable nonetheless. — 4 months ago

Agrapart & Fils (Pascal Agrapart)

Minéral Grand Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

The bottled aged considerably since the last time I drank, was much bigger in profile than I remember and was more Krug and Sir Winston Churchill like this time around with still all of the minerality you could ask for. Love me the Agrapart! — a year ago

Morphos Petillant Naturel American Sparkling Wine 2017

Flirty, slightly funky per nat. Perfect over a chat, rather than paired with food. From Sauvage, Churchill in Phoenix with Rob and Aaron — 4 years ago

Vintage Porto 2000

In a superb spot for early drinking, the 2000 Churchill is wonderfully pure, clean and saturated with bright fruit and a long finish. I wish I had bottles of this in the cellar, but it’s another great experience with millennium Port. — 4 months ago

Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 1995

Medium gold color. Light tiny bubbles. Notes of green apples, bread yeast, some citrus and citrus pit, and river stones. Modest in the mouth at first but with air this grew up and improved. Maybe a touch past its prime but a good start to the evening… (Bday 1 of 12) — 2 years ago

La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Popped this in anticipation of an Australian victory over England in the Rugby World Cup quarter final when we trailed 17-16 in the 2nd half. However we ended up getting trounced 40-16. This Champers was mid Lemon Gold with an ultra fine bead. Funky lemon mineral notes with apple pie pastry. Even at 17 years good tension with possibly another 10 years of cellaring. Although pretty irresistible right now. As Churchill said You deserve Champagne in victory and you need it in defeat! — 4 years ago

@David L It was David and Happy Birthday. You chaps drank some fine bottles. This 2002 vintage up there with 1996 and possibly surpassed by 2008 the experts are saying.
