Ratafia Dessert Wine

Nutty, pear, apple and apricot, this was a delicious dessert wine. Had it for Jared’s birthday paired with a citrus tart with whipped marscarpone. — 5 months ago

Solera Ratafia Champenois Pinot Noir Chardonnay

17/20 (92/100) Приятный, многослойный аромат безо всяких тонов спиртуозности или сивушных масел: курага, изюм, грецкий орех, яблочное варенье, ваниль, морёный дуб. Сладкое, но свежее с хорошим уровнем кислотности. Отличный баланс! — 4 years ago

Extra Dry Rosé Champagne Blend

1 May 2018

Dry rosé, not imported to the US. Very fun.

Photos of their cellar holding close to 60,000 bottles, intimate. The barrels next to the moldy walls hold their Ratafia de Champagne, amazing stuff...One bottle will be coming back stateside with us.

Les Vignes d'Autrefois Extra Brut Champagne Pinot Meunier 2014

Amazingly fresh. Blocked ML. At a great drinking spot. Crispy, crunchy red verging on brown apple skins. Kirsch / ratafia nose, ginger and the right oxidative sprinkle. Persistent, mouthwatering and punchy finish. Candied ginger, parsnip / celery with air. — 2 years ago

Château de Pommard

Ratafia de Bourgogne Pinot Noir

A fascinating combination of fresh grape juice blended with very old Marc de Bourgogne that was then aged in the bottle for a couple more years. This was a wonderful Christmas aperitif that drank very much like a vermouth but without the additional spices. A single ice cube opened it up like a fine whiskey showing off Christmas baking spice and juicy black fruit notes along with just a touch of the rich, nutty oak from the aged brandy. This was wonderful and I wish anything like this was easier to find here in the states. — 5 years ago
