Duchesse Aurelie


Monção e Melgaço Alvarinho 2022

Fruity at the start (duchesse pear, a bit of green peach) and caramel crust at the end.
More than ordinary.

Aurelie Vic

La Balade Minervois Red Rhone Blend

Nez de fruits rouges frais, bouche à l'attaque de fruits mûrs, cassis et mûres. Gouleyant mais avec une belle persistance. A boire sur des viandes au BBQ entres amis. Une belle surprise à un bon rapport quantité / prix — 6 years ago

Duchesse de Magenta

Les Houillères Chardonnay 2019

Pale, pear on the nose. Elegant, refined, clean non-acidic finish, yet unremarkable. Another burgh best for sipping as an aperitif rather than paired with food — 2 years ago

Duchesse de Magenta

Les Houillères Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay

Hay, gun powder, a bright lemon, a buttery note, toast, : a textbook côte de Beaune chardonnay nose. The palate is a model : a sheer and powerful acid backbone, a nice buttery touch on the sides, lemon and an oaky, toasty theme that plays along the acid backbone, a long lemony finish. Impressive: not as powerful and wide as most meursault I’ve had but more in a subtle, elegant manner. Much more my style. — 5 years ago

Reserva Special Oerbier 2017

I am not a serious beer drinker, usually at the ball park or a barbecue. Curiosity gets the best of me and like wine I enjoy seeing what’s out there. Holy s#%t! This was insane. A very murky reddish brown liquid and a cream colored foam filled my glass. Yes that is a wine glass. Intense Port like aromas of dry figs and chestnuts along with cherries(?). Powerful flavors of toffee, coffee , chocolate and balsamic vinegar. Spot on balance of sweet and sour. I always thought Duchesse de Bourgogne was the most vinous beer I have ever tasted until now. Perhaps most amazingly the 13% alcohol was no where to be found. I realize others on Delectable have had beer like this but for me it was an epiphany. A totally polarizing beverage . I will definitely try other vintages to see what age creates. — 3 years ago

Great brewery. Their winter/Christmas beer can age really well.
