LA BASTID Viura Blend 2019

Olivier Riviere La Bastia 2019, one of Riojas young guns and a big part of the postmodern revolution of the region. Le Bastid is a 90% Viura, 10% Garnacha Blanca, fermented and matured in 500 liter French oak barrels.
With resemblance to a good Burgundy the wine opens up with ripe white stonefruit (plum juice, white peaches) and a lemongrass herbiness. Followed by a whiff of toast and nuts that lies over a stoney minerality. Good energy on the palate with a fresh acidity and savoury qualities on the mid palate that brings dimension and complexity through the finish.
Paired with an improvised salmon and shrimp casserole in a mushroom infused velouté topped with fried parsley and sourdough croutons.
Serve it at 10-12 degree in a burgundy glass

Las Viñas de Eusebio Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Excellent, burgundian thinking somehow though unabashedly tempranillo. Not modern but no old-style rusticity or VA. — 10 months ago


Reflets de Riviere Brut Damery Champagne Blend

Goutorbe-Bouillot Reflets de Rivière Brut, Champagne. Blend of 60% Meunière, 20%Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from vines near the village of Damery. Very traditional , fruity and complex , yet still has good acidity and freshness. I can imagine it will develop some more with age. Very enjoyable wine. Used it to wash down it a turkey burger. #champagne #frenchwhitewine #goutorbe-bouillon #villageofdamery #refletsderiviere #nicholaspearce #growerschampagne #nonvintagechampagne #champagneanytime — 2 years ago
