Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2018

Just love this wine, just tried ‘18! Nice blend of grapes from the Bierzo Valley, the ‘18 has about 4% of perfectly ripe white grapes, 6% less than ‘17. Deep Ruby with loads of Berry fruits aromas adding some sweet floral spice and flinty notes. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry with a juicy mineral edge. Well balanced and integrated with fine smooth tannins, lively acidity and a long finish ending with oak and spicy notes. Tremendous value for such a complex wine. — 5 days ago

Special Club Brut Champagne 2013

The prestige Cuvée of the house, equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from vines dating back up to 70 years. Plenty of tension and youthful energy going on here. Nice acidity and structure with a lot of personality.

Pale shimmering gold with not a lot of bubbles and nice effervescence. A nice floral bouquet of citrus fruits and flowers. Pears and pineapples are dominant here with plenty of apples to help out. The palate is the height of harmony and finesse. There’s a subtle elegance with plenty of depth and complexity. An outstanding champagne with years left in the game.

Rueda Verdejo Fermentado en Barrica 2014

What a treat. Golden. Still has the underlying character of a traditional Verdejo but with some softer rounder edges to it. Age does it justice! — a month ago

Almacenista José Luis González Obregon Amontillado del Puerto Palomino Fino 1896

2021/4 with jamon, potato and truffle tortilla, paella, etc. This bottle was on the oxidative side of amontillado- lots of dried stone fruits, cream, and nuts - and very delicious. — 4 days ago
