Ratafia Russet

Laherte Frères

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. — 4 months ago

2 Towns Ciderhouse

8th Anniversary

Made in Corvallis Oregon. Contains a blend of four American and English apple varieties- Roxbury Russet, Ashmead’s Kernel, D’arcy Spice and Northern Spy - slowly fermented with white wine yeast. 6.9% ABV. Very pale yellow white, not much head on pour, pinpoint bubbles that quickly fade, very slight haziness. Beautifully rich perfumed nose. Crisp, long slightly malic finish, spiced aftertaste, carbonation spritz throughout. Almost dry. Well made, special stuff, intriguing structure. It’s definitely worth trying though I’m not sure I’d want to drink it regularly (meaning it’s not a good candidate to become a session cider for me, even if it were regularly available). Some core astringency on finish as well. Must be the acid-tannin-spiciness combo that I’m struggling with; some will love it, but... — 2 years ago

South Hill Cider

Bluegrass Russet Sparkling Cider

I am absolutely loving these south hill ciders. So fresh and so clean. Nice sweetness on this one but tastes like apple, apple skin, a hint of pear actually, and a bit of citrus. So tasty! Batch 1701 — 9 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! — 2 years ago
