Grand Cordon Brut Champagne Blend

It's clear that it holds up super well! The bouquet combines fruity notes of pear, hint of orange blossom, brioche notes and almonds in complete coherence. It's digestible and long in the mouth. It can be drunk well in all circumstances without leaving a headache.

Force est de constater que ça tient super bien la route! Le bouquet associe notes fruitées de poire, pointe de fleur d’oranger, notes briochées et amandes en toute cohérence. C’est digeste et long en bouche. Ça se boit bien en toute circonstance sans laisser de mal de tête.

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Coonawarra mint together with blackberry aromas. Cabernet tannins with a touch of bitterness - quite firm even though medium weight - tasting way younger than 13 years. The Wynns Black Label Cabernets have amazing longevity from their extensive resources of premium Coonawarra Cabernet fruit. One of the best value Cabs in the district The current vintage (2019) can be sourced for around $30. This 2009 will last until well into the 2030s. — 11 days ago

Brut Sélect Cordon Bleu Champagne 2002

I don’t know this house. They make Cordon Bleu—brut, extra brut, rosé, also a higher level called Princes, and their grand marque is Louis XV, also making a high end Vinotèque from older stock. House was founded in 1837 in Epernay. This is the only one I’ve had, a Cordon Bleu brut. And w 20 years on it, it’s pretty good juice. — 21 days ago

Black Label Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It is time for a delicious Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color, almost Inky, with a short reddish rim.

Strong fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, toasted cedar, vanilla, tobacco, Za'atar, chocolates, coffee, cola, black pepper, eucalyptus and spices.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, licorice, light cola, coffee, spices, tobacco, dark chocolates, light earth and black pepper.

Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins, peppercorn and cherries.

This is a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap. Spicy and interesting. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel at this point.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime, when the tannins calm down.

This 6 year old Single Vineyard Cabernet, is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

I had this vintage a couple of years ago and it is even better now.

Delicious and engaging. Fruit forward and good by itself as a sipping wine.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

The Black Pig Reserve McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Deep dark Ruby in colour - almost black. Ripe dark plum flesh and skins on nose and palate - sweet fruit and chocolate. A mouthful of flavour if not a bit simple. McLaren Vale does these big rich Shirazes well. A crowd pleaser with excellent QPR - a gift from my brother in law. — 18 days ago
