This is close to one of the best ciders I’ve had. Funky with tart apples, lemon, and flowers. Amazing and worth searching out this winery/cider. — 17 days ago
Purchased solely for the label at Cora for €7 and will be back for more. It is a very dark and dry red that is full bodied and smooth. Earthy with hints of currant and chocolate. Possibly one of my favorite reds since moving to Europe a few months ago. — 10 days ago
The first of many 2018’s from Rebourgeon. Stunning aromas. Stoney like great Pommard should be. A bit reticent but raspberry and licorice sneak through. Amazing airiness. So clean and such insane purity. This is slowly unfurling. Spice. Smoke. So detailed. This kid is such a talent. Wow. What a palate. So juicy and refined. Sick. So pure. Red fruits galore and stones. A tiny berry fruit intensity like nothing else. Nose getting more expansive with air. Terrific early season red cherries, and such freshness and just insane energy. Wow the is s little engine. Awesome velvety but also sweet and stoney tannins. Long and pure. So detailed. Seurat wine here. Delicious. As it airs the structure becomes more apparent with bigger tannins but it is all there. Briliant wine. — a month ago
Smooth, light tannins, mild blackberry flavor. 10/10 would recommend for easy drinking. Paired wonderfully with some artichokes. Color is a beautiful dark ink. — 11 days ago
Yum! Fresh, berries, slightly tart, not too sweet. Super summery and drinkable. — 10 days ago
Everything at Little Engine seems like it's priced about $10 a bottle higher than local comparables, but that said, despite their pricing and somewhat snootier-than-necessary attitude throughout the organization, they have some interesting wines on offer. In the case of this Gold Label Pinot Noir, it's about depth of flavor and earthiness. Mushroom, dark-rich garden soil, blackberry, black plum, and some baking spiced swimming around in there. Quite nice. Everyone has their own Pinot style and it seems unnecessary to rank then Silver, Gold, and Platinum. This one's worth giving a try though. — a month ago
I can’t remember the last time I had a German pinot. This spatburgunder from Mosel was a pleasant discovery.
The color suggest an austere wine that might not be too exciting, but boy was I wrong. Refreshing French picked red berries and more fruit forward than the color of the wine would indicate. Supple tannins that complemented some of the forest floor type notes. Charming bouquet of wild berries.
Time to go down the spatburgunder rabbit hole?!? Any recommendations welcome!! — 24 days ago
