Old Fitzgerald

15 Years Aged Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2019

Whiskeyfest. I like bourbon and this was solid for me. Not sure it’s worth the cost which is probably why they sell it in a fancy decanter (not shown in this pic as it’s a trade show bottle). — a month ago

James Bond 007 Brut Champagne 2002

50th anniversary edition from the stellar’02 vintage. Sensational!!
Disg June 12, full of red fruit flavor, almost tasted like VVF! A deep golden color with tinges of red. Bollinger close to its best.

Special Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

David T

I’ve had this many times but, never just sat and enjoyed full bottle with Sofia and pick it apart to write detailed notes. A great Costco price on this Cuvée has changed that for tonight.

The nose reveals; bruised, green & golden apple without skin and a hint of tartness, touch of of apple cider, Bosc pear, pineapple, lemon/lime zest, quince, cream soda, vanillin, very light white spice, caramel notes, great chalk, sea fossils and spray, bread dough, spring flowers, jasmine and yellow lilies.

The body is full and lively. Some
@Severn Goodwin might want to decant this one. The acidity is fresh, big, yet restrained on the long set. Bruised, green & golden apple without skin a hint of tartness, touch of of apple cider, Bosc pear, pineapple, lemon/lime zest, quince, more cream soda on the palate, vanillin, very light white spice with a tad of palate heat, caramel notes, great chalk that really pops, saline, haunting iodine notes, sea fossils and spray, really nice grey, fine, grainy volcanic minerals, light woodiness, bread dough, spring flowers, jasmine, citrus blossoms and yellow lilies. The long finish is, rich, well balanced, polished and persists minutes. Really hitting its mark tonight.

Photos of; the House of Bollinger (007 James Bond), the library area, their miles of chalky caves and one of their Grand Cru Vineyards.

I find similarities between this and the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve, and depending on which I can find cheaper, I buy. But their ‘08 La Grande Anne is a stunner! Trying to load up, especially when compared to other ‘08 vintage champagnes of note.

St. Eden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Double decant ( lots of chunky sediment). An exquisite dark ruby red color. Very concentrated with black fruit, crushed stone, pencil lead, coffee...some unresolved tannins ...could wait a few more years for it to peak. — a month ago

Palermo Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Amazing. It has a shy beginning. The nose promises a lot. There is some vanilla sweetness with ripe cherry and raspberry. But then comes the palate where all of it strikes you with some pepper, strong. But the finish is calm. It's really fantastic wine. I love it for its elegance connected with boldness. The wine made for James Bond. :) — 9 days ago

This app has seen the last of me. I can’t add the real address or whom I’m with properly. A waste of my time - this was shared with Tom Koelhoffer at Bond 45 at 221 46th St. NY NY.
