Château Du Grand Bern

Cruz Alta

Grand Reserve Pinot Noir 2018

Clear garnet red. Inviting nose and medium-bodied palate of black cherry cobbler and woodsy earth. Medium plus-ish acidity makes up for the next to no tannins. Argentina’s high altitude vineyards prove to be ideal for a uniquely Southern Hemisphere style that’s great as a casual sipper or with cheeses, but serves equally well as a meal accompaniment. Enjoy with pork, vegetarian dishes, lighter cuts of beef, or the classic salmon (I’m having Atlantic). Drink now or next year. — 7 days ago

Domaine Dujac

Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Intoxicating nose that can be smelled across the room and one that is quintessential Dujac. It’s juicy with dark fruit and whole bunch spice and there is a surprising level of ripeness and concentration for the vintage. It’s finely detailed and delineated with a silky texture, big structure and excellent length. Open for business. — 20 hours ago

Marquis de Bern

Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Has a beautiful ruby color!
Nice fragrance of dark cherry, raspberry, ripe berries and chocolate with a hint of spices.
Drinks nicely with soft tannins with a bit of pepper & spice and finishes with some dark berries on the palate. The more it breathes the smoother it becomes...

Gosset

Grand Millésime Brut Champagne Blend 1996

This is a great bottle, more complexity than my previous bottle. Great acidity and some brioche toast with rich marmalade. Still strong and nowhere it’s felt as a old wine. Love it! — 6 days ago

Domaine Fernand Engel

Praelatenberg de Kintzheim Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2014

Medium gold in color, the honeyed nose shows apricot, minerally/earthy “petrol” notes, and almost a Semillon-like lanolin note. Rich in the mouth and off-dry (like a German Feinherb), it’s got deep fruit and earth flavors and is quite full-bodied (14%), with a little alcohol showing at the tail end of the finish. Not a delicate-styled Riesling by any stretch. It’s the kind of Riesling that will go better with white meats than anything from river or sea. — 12 days ago

@David L @Dawn E. @Severn Goodwin They’re Bormioli InAlto I bought several years ago (at Marshall’s of all places, I think). I love how they concentrate the nose of a wide range of wines. Unfortunately I’m down to my last 2, which my wife and I use when it’s just us. I’m not sure they’re even produced anymore. I should check (but my wife says we have too many wine glasses already!).
