Krug

Brut Champagne Blend 2006

2006 Krug ‘Brut’ Champagne- The 2006 Krug ‘Brut’ Champagne is a resounding success from this warm vintage in Champagne. Both high toned and rich aromatically, kumquat purée with shades of nutmeg infused Challah bread and baked Bosc pear all take their shape in the glass. The rich, almost oily, texture delightfully coats the mid-palate. Ripe white grapefruit, sourdough bread and ginger flavors all sing in harmony on this expressive palate. As good as the texture is, the highly gratifying, minute-long finish, completes this scintillating new wine. While this beautiful vintage Champagne is showing marvelously in its youth, it will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2035- 97 — 5 days ago

Nice review!

Sea Horse Winery

Antoine Tête de Cuvée Syrah Blend 2012

was hoping for wow and it is a wow.

10 years of marriage today.
things didn't go well all through. but we matured surprisingly well.
this is the oldest wine i had (in terms of years passed from bottling).

i was lucky to help again sorting 🍇 after 2019 harvesting at seahorse winery. it was Petit syrah this time.

after a hard day laboring (back hurt for two weeks following intensive yet pleasurable 'punch down') they said: pick a bottle

i took this 2012 gsm (sgm really) which was bottled same day.

72% syrah
16% grenache
12% mourvadre

14% ABV

dense red with some blueness and thick legs👀

green funkness, tobbaco, mushrooms, wet leaves and ripe black fruit 👃

medium + body.
high bursting acidity.

black fruit ruling with green notes, tartness and pepper. some sweetness felt at the back👄

long 🎯 with tannins that are soft and pleasant and take their time before leaving.

it took it's time.
opened and chilled in the refrigerator 2 hours before drinking.

started as: that is nice but no wowness.
as it warmed up and had more air it became what it's supposed to be:
complex balanced superb spicy juice.

not sure how much they charge but excellent vfm for sure.

on its own it was great after opening up.
sourdough bread with 🐐butter and unknown stinky yellow 🧀 made it juicier and spice was stronger.
great sicilian style home made caponata had the same effect.

seahorse winery getting a 🏆again? for shizzle.

same wine after 10 years more of marriage would probably be even better.

J-M Seleque

Solessence Nature 7 Villages Champagne Blend 2016

Bright straw yellow colour with golden reflections. The nose opens with fragrant notes of white fruits and flowers, citrus scents and hint of bread dough. Nicely dry, soft finish, well balanced, elegant but also substantial. — 4 days ago

Bollinger

La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 2005

One of my favorites! Not as great as my last bottle of this vintage, but still fantastic. Dark gold color. Massive nuts and butter, and very refined. Lacked a little punch, but still lovely. — 4 days ago
