Dit is precies hoe een goede rode wijn moet smaken — 4 years ago

Tenuta Il Poggione

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Mooie rode kleur, geur en smaak vallen minder op dan vooraf verondersteld. Afdronk redelijk lang, maar niet erg lang en smal. Tannines aanwezig, maar niet overmatig. Er is geen aanwijzing te veronderstellen dat de wijn zich op termijn heel@veel verder in goede richting zal ontwikkelen. — 4 months ago

Château Côte de Baleau

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

Diep rode kleur, prettige geur, nog betere smaak, mooi rond fruitig, volle ronde volwassen smaak. Tannines zacht maar wel aanwezig. Kan al goed gedronken worden, maar nog 2-3 jaar liggen zou voor de tannines geen kwaad kunnen. — 4 months ago

Ayala

Cuvée Perle d'Ayala Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2012

We visited Champagne Ayala today, located in the grand cru village of Äy, Champagne. 🇫🇷

This champagne house is now part of the Bollinger family 🏠 ; it has a distinct and marked personality, leaning especially towards Chardonnay with a light, elegant, and focused character. 🌸

We had the pleasure of touring the grounds and cave with @carledmundsherman where we learned about the history of Ayala, the subsoils and topography where grapes used to make this wine were grown; we rode an elevator with crates of bottles that had been riddled, and we even caught a glimpse of wines being disgorged, dosaged, and corked in action. 🤩

It was a memorable, educational, and delicious experience. 💕Here is a lineup of wines we tasted - mostly blends of predominantly Chardonnay (with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and a Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay).

All of these wines were lovely, though our favorite was the Vintage 2012 La Perle — ‘The Pearl’ — prestige cuvée, due to its richness, aromatics, and complexity. 👏👏👏🍾🍾🍾

Santé!!🥂🥂🥂🥂 @champagne_ayala
