Celler Batlle Gran Reserva Brut Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada 2009

Vintage 2009 | Under the radar Cava, one of the best I ever tasted. Is on a ‘101 wines to try before you die’ list - but I can assure that I want to stay alive ☺️ — a month ago

Il Roncat Monte dei Carpini Pignolo 2016

My first experience with a Friulian Pignolo...Wow..what a simply perfect pasta/pizza wine. Nice bright berry red color... medium weight on the palate...smoke, BlackBerry fruit, sweet red fruit and brilliant lively acidity...perfect foil to red tomato sauce and sausage pizza. Only problem being that the balance, refreshment quotient, and cravability mean a single 750 is not enough. Lost the battle w/wife for last swallow! What a great bargain for Saturday night red sauce! — 19 days ago

Hartford Court

Fog Dance Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

The darker, more herbal side of Hartford pinot noir is on display here. A smoky, wet earth nose with notes of mushroom and black fruits. The plate is lush but also lean with lots of acidity and very soft tannins. Earth and juicy fruit battle to a draw at this point in the wine’s life making it a wonderful compliment to a wide variety of foods, in this case, pork chops. Very good. — 2 months ago

Château d'Arsac

Cru Bourgeois Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

2018 vintage. There is a lot to be said about this estate, I recommend visiting the website. It has a very ancient history but today it is a big 250 hectares estate, with 108 hectares of vines, 54 hectares classified as Margaux (after a legal battle), 50 hectares as Haut-Médoc and 4 hectares planted with Sauvignon Blanc (only entitled to the humble Bordeaux Blanc appellation over here). It shines rapidly in the nose with cassis, flowers and very subtle oak. In the mouth it is all about elegance. If you are looking for a blockbuster, this is not your kind. But if you can appreciate a classy refined gentleman then buy this by the case. Textbook Margaux finesse, with impeccable balance, nice depth and length make this one of the finest values in the appellation. Highly recommended. Abv. 13,5 %. — 9 days ago
