La Grande Dame Brut Champagne Blend 2008

Popped and poured; no formal notes as it was enjoyed quickly due to the setting and our celebratory mood. What I do recall is that this is a very fine Champagne however, it comes across a touch rounder than most 2008's at this level. The acid is sneaky however and I suspect time will reward those with patience. — 9 months ago

29th Anniversary wine. Rich toast, wet earth, grass, ( wheat) yeasty and leezy. Caramel like nougat.
Delicious. Very fine bubbles*. There’s a hint of lemon but it’s not acidic.

I'm still holding a 2008, TBD on whenever we open. Great bottle.


Royal Grande Réserve Crémant de Loire 2017

A real vinous sparkling wine. Extra dry. Beautiful pale dress, fine but numerous bubbles. Very expressive nose of peach, pear, candied citrus, brioche, dried fruits, hazelnut, and a saline touch, which extends on a sharp final. With 5 years of aging 2017, offers unity and a beautiful relief. Ideal to accompany a meal. Relevant alternative to Champagnes, especially in terms of its price!

Un vrai pétillant vineux, extra sec. Belle robe pale, bulles fines mais nombreuses. Nez très expressif de pêches, poire, agrumes confits, notes briochées, fruits secs, noisette, et un toucher salin, qui se prolonge bien sur une finale tranchante. Avec 5 ans de garde 2017 offre une unité et un beau relief. Idéal pour accompagner un repas. Alternative pertinente aux champagnes, surtout au regard de son prix!

Brut Grande Cuvée Premier Cru Champagne Blend

I second that this is a steal! And a perfect pairing for…Collards and hocks w pasilla. Golden in the glass, not the biggest nose, but in the mouth it’s lively, full, with a fine mousse, nicely refreshing against the fat of the ham hock. As it warms, lots of brioche & almonds on the palate and more gooseberry on the nose.Sometimes, you hit the bullseye without knowing what you’re doing.

Pol Roger

Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 2013

Quite light straw colour , very fine persistent mousse . Quite discreet on the nose at first , then camomile , white flowers then deeper yellow fruits, brioche and citrus peel . More yellow fruits on palate , citrus peel. Dense , broad shouldered and mouth filling are all adjectives that come to mind but all balanced by good acidity, tension, plus lots of backbone . More mineral with slightly toasty brioche touches on the finish, good length , though not as long as the Bollinger Grande Année 2014 had last week. Really young , needs time but shows it’s quality . Better in 7- 10 years , I would imagine , will plateau for a further 10 at least — 8 months ago

Cognac Tesseron

Composition Fine Champagne Cognac

Delectable Wine

The Cognac Composition is a very pretty, easygoing introduction to the range of Tesseron Cognacs. Floral and relatively light in body, the Composition offers up hints of charred lemon, sage, chamomile, dried flowers and subtle toast accents. It will do nicely when something simple and light is called for. This is the only Cognac in the Tesseron range that is not X.O. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2022)
