Top shelf. Grabbed the last one at my local shop for $30. $40 everywhere online. Very good QPR

Krug

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

Krug is always most welcome, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. This is edition 169. A bit more yeasty and slightly less acidic than previous versions, to my taste. But if you like the Krug style - which we do very much - it hits the spot per usual.

My wife used to work with Fritz Hatton, proprietor of Arietta wines and auctioneer for Zachys. Fritz always says to have a half bottle of champagne waiting in the fridge in case you need a “midnight snack”, and I have to agree with him!

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2015

Wow. Very surprised how delicious this is. Fragrant nose has beautiful pear/quince fruit, a gentle stony minerality, and yellow flowers. Round, mouthfilling, soft, balanced. Good concentration and length. Really well done and super fresh for a 6 year old Soave. — 2 days ago

Château de Bligny

Grande Réserve Brut Champagne

A very nice champagne. Some brioche, tons of apples (fresh and baked), some lime, and stone. There’s also some pear. Really nice for the price. — 9 days ago

Krug

Grande Cuvée Brut Reims Champagne Blend

Looks to be a bottle from the 80s mature rich and complex . Toffee , brioche, mushrooms kept in check by golden delicious apple fruit . This is a winner and it’s nice to have a grand cuvée with age since most of these get drunk way to young ! — 15 days ago

Grande Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Clear dark ruby. Abundant nose of musty, earthy black cherry with a vanilla sheen. Medium bodied palate echoes the nose with a bit of anise and medium acidity. Medium minus tannins that mildly assert on the finish. Classic higher end Willamette PN at a great price. Pair with pork, duck, salmon (Pacific, natch) or practically anything else. Drink now through 2029 when the mellowed fruit will suggest Burgundy. — 5 days ago

Pizzato

Fausto Merlot 2017

There is smokey start to this nose, with a bit of vanilla and red forest fruits and maybe raspberries. Quite interesting but rthe smokyness is strong. The palate is well balanced with a creamy touch, a nice red forest fruit note all along, a soft mouthfeel and a good width. Very gentle tannins in mid palate and a rather long fruity finish. This is very well made! First Brazilian wine and a good first impression — 22 days ago
