Asda Extra Special

Varnier-Fanniere

Cuvée Jean Fannière Origine Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne

Very special, red fruits from Pinot noir. No, this is made from Chardonnay grape. 2nd time on 200318, tasty giving impact with matured pear and nuts flavor and sourness. @2300, - Kkami, 210303 — a month ago

Suá Extra Brut Sparkling Blend

Agree with the one other person that rated this sparkling wine. Go-to affordable sparkling for a good brunch beverage. Slightly nicer than than the average. Drinkable. Nothing special, but not bad for the price. — 6 months ago

Les Maillons Rosé de Saignee Extra Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

9.6

A special gift from @Shawn R and his lovely wife; Jeniffer.
The visual presentation is superb. Nose is so different from typical champers. No perceptible oak, yeast or bread - wonderful departure. Palate is consistent. Extra brut, but the dosage is deceptively sweet. Smallest bubbles we’ve ever experienced, combine with rose petals and strawberries. Finishes with vigor, but also very regal. Stunning. A new style of champers for us.

Yes, gents. This was special on another level. The visual shapes your expectations, and in no way did the visual flatter to deceive. Thanks again, @Shawn R and Jennifer!

Extra Brut Cuvée Quintessence Viellie en Fût de Chêne Chardonnay

Solid champagne that gets the job done. Can’t say it’s amazing or special but I appreciated the extra brut crisp clean nature of it — 2 months ago

Giuseppe Quintarelli

Primofiore Veneto Corvina Blend 2017

2017. 9.0-9.1. Quintarelli’s entry-level non-ripasso wine. Explosion of strawberry and cherry fruit but not much backbone or complexity to balance it out. Maybe picks up some tertiary flavors over time but I’d rather pay the extra $30 for Q’s truly special Ca Del Merlo. $50. — 5 months ago

Château Thivin

Cuvée Godefroy Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2018

Love this old old vine cuvee. Complex nose of mid season cherry fruit, florals, huge rocky minerals and rock dust, some game, and lovely dust. So good. Smells ethereally complex. Like a Gamay forest. Palate is deep, deep, deep and so pure with incredible freshness and mineral energy that cleanses the palate. So juicy. Terrific, grainy and caressing tannins. This is a terrific Godefroy that has a very long life ahead of it. Really great depth and serious midpalate density. But the freshness and waves of energy on the finish are what make this wine extra special. — 9 months ago
