Henri Giraud

Fût de Chêne Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2009

Flera årgångar från solera-system med 09 som bas. Härligt utvecklas och matig. Röda mogna äpplen, brioche, saffran, nektar och vanilj. Ganska bombastisk och gör sig nog bäst till mat. — 11 days ago

Wisselbrunnen Rheingau Riesling

Winery in the Rheingau is now called Kaufmann. Tasted this over the Christmas Holidays in Frankfurt. Beautiful wine, good acidity, hint of lemon, peach, and a soft petrol nose. Urban Kaufmann and partner Eva Rapp have been leaders in redefining Germany's classification system this GG (Grosses Gewachs) is a great start — a month ago

Domaine Clos des Rochers

Grand Premier Cru Moselle Luxembourgeoise Auxerrois Blanc 2017

An aperitif wine to engage the palate and build the appetite for dinner on this wet covid day inside. Even Jake won’t go out. This wine isn’t a Ferrari - more like a spiffy Honda with metallic paint and a nice stereo system. Nice wine. — 6 months ago

Actually I was referring to the Riesling, which this is not!

Honda + good stereo=Luxembourg Auxerrois. Who woulda thunk it. Go Luxembourg, go...

East Side Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Really solid Cabernet Sauvignon...not overly complex, but very full flavored and leathery in a good way. The best part is that I didn’t even know I had it until last week because it had rolled back into the stacked pallets I used to use as a wine storage system and I found it as I was taking them out of my basement. Probably it was in there a couple of years. — 7 hours ago

Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

One hour decant(decent amount of sediment). A sumptuous dark ruby red with some bricking. On the nose: Sweet perfume jumps from the glass with black cherry, floral, black olives, and a minty menthol. Let's you know to buckle up....a 4 point harness system buckle up!! Taste: Sweet tannins coat the mouth with dark fruit and jolts of red plum, mocha, cedar, and toasty oak.

A full body, juicy wine with great acidity. A pencil lead/mineral looong finish. Drinking great now and will go another 10 years. Got 2 more bottles...YES!!

SP68 Bianco Terre Siciliane Albanello Muscat of Alexandria 2018

On first sniff, it smells like dank mushrooms, sip is bright like a navel orange with a deep heft in the mouthfeel. It feels through your whole scent system, even down your throat. Could call it the edge of creamy with how it sits in the mouth. Savory finish like a fatty filet. — 9 months ago

La Togata Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

MICHAEL COOPER
9.2

We tasted a lot of wines in #montalcino and this is the bottle we bought to take home with us. Delicious and generous. #brunello ANNUAL PRODUCTION:
30.000/35.000 bott.

PRODUCTION AREA:
The vineyards are in the hills of Montalcino, at different heights and with a sun exposure until sunset. The age of the vineyards from which we select the grapes destined to produce Brunello is more than 20 years. Average altitude of the vineyards: 250 mt s.l.m.

SOIL:
Tuffaceous clay, very rich in fossils.

GRAPE VARIETY:
Large Sangiovese 100%.

TRAINING SYSTEM:
bilateral and balanced cordon.

DENSITY FOR HECTARE:
5.500

PRODUCTION SYSTEM:
The vineyards are subject to thinning of bunches, the average criteria is, in good vintages, three bunches of five stay on. The grapes thus obtained are further selected in the cellar, where they are processed according to the old tradition. It proceeds to intense extraction in the early stages of fermentation, followed by long quiescent maceration on the marc; the maximum temperature is raised up to 33 °C and maintained at high values until the racking. The ageing in wood lasts 36 months in oak barrels from Slavonia hl 17.50. It follows bottle ageing for 12 months far beyond the mandatory minimum of four months from production regulations.

Brut Reserve Champagne Blend

God so good. Maybe the Champagne I tend to think about most. A glimpse into the world of aged Champagne at NV cost and no patience needed. Via solera system, it’s and equal mix of Chardonnay, Pinot Noire, and Pinot Meunier, of which 35% is reserve juice.

Rich, deep, sophisticated in a beautiful copper color. Deep. Yellow apple, spiced ginger, white flowers, red cherry, brioche.

@Jay Kline from what I’ve seen about a third of the juice comes from the solera. I could be wrong though...
