Layer Cake Wines

Corte alle Mura

Riserva Chianti Sangiovese

Generous nose, spice, oak. Richly flavoured, really tasty, mature, fruit cake, long, complex. €9.99 Lidl bargain. — a month ago

Jacques Selosse

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Substance 09 Disg. was superb with a nose to die for. Like old rum barrels. Layer upon layer of complex flavors. Fades a bit over time, but to drink amongst four was perfect. No decant necessary. — a month ago

Mas Serra

Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2018

There is a little funk at first. Then comes tapenade, fig, bacon, blackberry, Provence herbs. The palate is very nice and smooth although quite acid driven, but with a soft mouthfeel and a nice blackberry note. There is a good width and a bit of weight, a spherical mid palate with a good tannic kick leaving a layer of dust on the finish which is mainly fruity with a bacon note. It's very surprising to find that bacon note that I usually associate with Northern Rhone syrah. This is a very good surprise. — 13 days ago

Bieres de Chimay S.A.

Grande Réserve Pères Trappistes Belgian Ale 2019

Big head... smells of Molasses and chocolate cake. A classic Trappist. Dark. Thick. A slow sipper. Tried to match with Indian food... I’d say it worked-ish. (the vintage is on the cork). — 12 days ago

TOR Kenward Family Wines

Torchiana Beresini Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2018

Outstanding. I love Tor’s wines, but am particularly fond of his white wines. This has hints of honeydew, orange blossoms, cashew, other tropical fruits, and pineapple upside-down cake. Thoroughly delicious! — a day ago

Clos Labarde

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2015

Satisfying #stemiliongrandcru - stewed currant, spiced rum cake, forest floor, leather, nose - forward acidity and soft tannins. Beautiful wine for juicy mushroom burgers. — 15 days ago

Senatore Primitivo 2017

The wine is quite dark in the glass but is also very closed off on the nose. There is some black plum and some tar, but it is surprisingly faint. The palate isn't shy about showing its dark fruit with a layer of savory spice and anise over it. The tannins are not forceful, so pairing with pasta is a cinch, or just sip it. It is very tasty and smooth, and has a lengthy finish. — 5 days ago

Telmo Rodríguez

Vino de la Tierra Castilla y León Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra Red Blend 2010

Telmo Rodríguez, the Spanish winemaker, aka the driving winemaker, because of his multiple estates across Spain, produces this Garnacha from Gredos in Castilla y León. A medium-bodied, granat red coloured wine, with red and black berries, but also a second layer of licorice, herbs some tobacco. Very soft tannines and a long aftertaste. Great wine! — 19 days ago
