This is not the dry (száraz) version but rather the sweet (édes) szamorodni. — 3 days ago
Great with a large mixed greens salad. Would like to revisit. — 3 hours ago
Fantastic with our Tikka Masala. Nuanced with a lovely dryness but tastes honey in the mouth. Leaning towards an oxidized vibe. Into it — 17 days ago
Fin rökighet initialt som följs upp av flera lager smak. Äpplen, nötter, blommor, jasmin, ingefära, krusbär. Avslutet är lite flintigt med känsla av saltkristaller. — 11 days ago
If I were to taste this blind I’d guess Loire Sauvignon, such is the fresh, lean and vibrant profile of this Tokaji Furmint. Apple, lime, peach and blossom notes are graced with a highly mineral finish. This is drinking very well now at five years of age. Not my kind of white, but a great accompaniment to seafood pasta. — 25 days ago
The Seasonal Grand Opening of the D&S Lounge. That’s going to require some BSR to celebrate.
As well, going to detail notes of this with my new Riedel Vintage Sommelier flutes, center picture. I’ve been wanting to write notes on this Champange in the new flutes as I wanted to do it one I am very well acquainted. As @Paul T- Huntington Beach & @Severn Goodwin have pointed out the many times I have posted it.
The nose is definitely more vibrant. Tangerines lead where they haven’t in my previous notes now using the new flutes. More pink rose petals, blood orange, pink grapefruit, leaner; strawberries, watermelon, warmed, creamed raspberries, apricots & cherries, liqueured marmalade, hints of scorched rhubarb, lemon/lime aid, chalky powder, delicate, grey volcanics, sweet, sea spray, bread dough, baguette crust, touch of brown sugar/molasses light, haunting, dry herbs, limestone and bouquet of; white, red, pink & orange roses.
The body is round with some gummy or gluiness. Everything about the mouthfeel is more delicate and softer. The bubbles smaller & more refined. Pink rose petals, blood orange, pink grapefruit, leaner; strawberries, watermelon, warmed, creamed raspberries, apricots & cherries, liqueured marmalade, hints of scorched rhubarb, almost a date presence on the long set, chalky powder, delicate, grey volcanics, sweet, sea spray, lighter intensity of white spices but, still has the heat & palate penetration, bread dough, baguette crust, touch of brown sugar/molasses light, haunting, dry herbs, limestone and bouquet of; white, red, pink & orange roses. The acidity is all fresh & lively with this cuvée. But, even that seems better. The finish is as always; well knitted & balanced, polished, fresh, persistent and never disappoints.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cooked cherries, light wood, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, spices, herbs, earth, dark coffee, dark chocolate and black pepper.
Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, licorice, sweet cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, peppercorn, tobacco, chocolates, light vinaigrette, pencil lead and herbs.
Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Spanish blend. Smooth and buttery, with nice acidity and balance. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.
Very pleasant and easy drinking already. Fruit forward, spicy and interesting. Would be nice to try it again in 3 to 5 years.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly, so please be prepared. It's worth the wait. Last glass was so much better.
I paired it a young Gouda cheese and crackers.
A blend of 35% Garnacha, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Samsó. Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.
15% alcohol by volume.
