Outstanding Gamay from a boutique natural wine maker in the Avergne region of France. Notable acidity with an earthy, potting soil and violet nose, sour cherry flavours initially come through and then maybe boysenberry or some other dark fruit. The wine is lively, almost effervescent and its complex and most importantly, utterly delicious. — 3 months ago

Very young so decanted 5 hours before serving. A very expressive nose of dark and red fruits, cassis, cherries and strawberries, kirsch, white pepper, thyme and some floral scents. The palate is forward despite the youth of the wine, medium bodied plus, gorgeous fruit and decent length of the delicious gripping finale. 92-93
Très jeune donc carafé 5 heures avant de le boire, dégusté avec le délicieux et copieux menu hivernal de la Cabane d’à côté, commandé et livré à la maison via la boutique en ligne du Pied de Cochon. Un nez très aromatique, une explosion de fruits, cerises, fraises, kirsch, du poivre blanc, du thym, une touche florale. La bouche se montre avenante, ouverte malgré la jeunesse, belle acidité, ce fruité envoutant dont on ne se lasse pas et une finale delicieuse et de belle longueur, avec juste un peu de poigne sans être trop tannique. 92-93 pts

Great wine from a boutique NP-VQA winery with linage to old vines. Nose on opening of honeydew melon. Initially a taste of fresh cut Apple 🍏
As it opens the transition is to Meyer Lemons with mid point of white grapefruit & finish of white stone minerality.
The wine body is light with a finish that’s crisp & clean. Cheers🥂 — a month ago
The Chichibu Distillery in Hokkaido Japan is boutique in the extreme with just 14 employees and two small copper pot stills. This whisky is a blend of Japanese material blended with Whiskies sourced from around the world including Canada, the USA, Ireland and Scotland. Typical attention to detail has produced a meticulous blend showing more highland grainy flavours than the peaty west coast flavours of Scotland. If I ever return to Niseko for skiing I will make an attempt to visit this wonderful little distillery in Hokkaido. 46% ABV. — 4 months ago
‘Auteur’, meaning, ‘author’ in French, is a micro boutique, family-owned and run winery in Sonoma. The name captures a sense of creativity, artistry, and innovation.
Here’s a flight of the 2019 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir, the 2019 Labyrinth Vineyard Pinot Noir, and Auteur’s inaugural 2018 Nunnery Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wow, each of these wines has such a strong sense of self. From a baked black cherry, plum, fruit focused wine (Gap’s Crown) to a more mocha, earthy, inky, spicy wine (Labyrinth), to an herbal, eucalyptus, rose, potpourri, green bell pepper driven wine (Nunnery).
The Pinots come from a clone known for its thick skin (relatively speaking!), which overall lends a deeper hue and more tannin to the structure. These wines are made exclusively from the free run juice.
The Pinots are all fermented in 60% new French oak (medium toast), the Cabernet is just slightly more with 70% new French oak.
The Cabernet was aged for 24 months in the barrel, lending cedar, clove, and cinnamon notes.
These wines are beautiful 😍😍😍

Sweet red, well balanced. Says to drink chilled but I prefer it room temp. It has a very nice concord grape boutique, with a hint of strawberries. It paired very well with pasta and chocolate, and it stands very well on it's own. It's not a overly sweet wine, and it will definitely leave you asking for more. I was very surprised for the price I paid $7.99. — 3 months ago
Valentine's Day dinner with my Bahama mama at The Landing; a 200-year-old estate in Harbour Island's downtown. Originally the home of the island's first doctor, the colonial-style building served as Customs House and then a private club. It was built when Harbour Island was a ship building center. With the help of supermodel India Hicks, The Landing has been transformed into a charming 12-room boutique hotel with one of the hottest restaurants in town. — 4 months ago
