Ivoire et Ébène Brut Premier Cru Champagne 2013

Dough, green plantain, apple, a little leafy on the nose. Intensely aromatic, lots of very fine bubbles. Bright, racy palate of citrus, apple, minerals, with some bitterness on the finish. Very good but a little austere, and the NV blend may be the better value? — 17 days ago

Visited the Aubry champagne house this summer. Especially liked their Aubry de Humbert cuvée. At 28 euro a steal.

@Peter Zandbergen Awesome. I’ll keep an eye out for it! I think their basic non-vintage brut is one of the best “everyday” bubbles money can buy.

@Josh Morgenthau Indeed! The ex-cellar prices are 16.80 EUR for the brut NV, 28 EUR for the Humbert, and 29 EUR for the Ivoire & Ebene.

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Vendemmia d’Artista L' Energia Red Blend 2014

Dark Ruby with aromas of earthy ripe black and red berries with slight note of cacao and woody spice. On the palate flavors of ripe, juicy fruit with oak, tobacco, leather and peppery-spicy tones, dense and persistent, firm tightly wound tannins need to integrate with oak. Long finish, complex ending with juicy sweet fruit and toasty notes. Must mature! — 16 days ago

Komokabras Lote 1 K-Ño Albariño Tinto 2018

Druvtypiskt fruktig och blommig men en nivå mer vild än gemene albarino. Medelfyllig med gula plommon, blommor, honung och riktigt mycket mineralsälta. — 5 days ago

L' Accomplie Premier Cru Extra Brut Vieilles Vignes Champagne Blend

Checks all the boxes for great champagne for me. Delicious, brisk, complex, textural and alluring on all fronts. Loads of character. Ripe asian pear, red apple skin, lime zest, sweet citrus peel, white strawberry and peach, loads of orchard blossom, starchy, and a salty/chalky thread throughout. There’s a vinous form to this but the racy acid drives it all across the palate, great tension/ripeness balance there. 80 PN 20 CH; 75% 2015 balance ‘14 & ‘13; 10/2018 disgorgement — a month ago

Amazing Mondeuse.
Bit old but super alive.
Fruit, gooseberies, may be bit black current, some subtle spices, fresh, very integrated tannins. 😍😍😍
