Res Fortes

Moussé Fils

Les Fortes Terres Champagne Pinot Meunier 2017

FIFA and Champagne

This is an interesting and tasty vintage Champagne. Made with 100% Pinot Meunier grapes.

Medium bodied with bright acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing citrus, limes, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices, yeast and brioche.

Nicely balanced with medium sized bubbles. Salty and interesting.

Still young, but already enjoyable even by itself. A good food wine too. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

Easy drinking and good for parties.

Needs 15 minutes to open up.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

12% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

@"Odedi", I am finding I really like Champagne with a nice amount of Pinot Meunier in the cepage! 100% sounds great!

Château La Grande Maye

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Held amazingly for its age. Still has a lot of res fruit character. Was great for a short sip fell apart fast. Well past it’s past prime. Delicate and oxidized. Just what the pharmacist ordered. — 2 years ago

Stone Tree Vineyard Grenache 2013

Light, sweet and refreshing. Beautiful notes of ruby red grapefruit, strawberries, and res plum. Supple tannins make for an elegant, medium grip. Yum! — 4 years ago

Veraison Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I loved this wine. Very bold but very smooth. Very deep res in color. Had for Christmas 2020. It was wonderful. One of the best wines I’ve tasted. — 2 years ago

Sixpoint Brewery

DDH Hi-Res Triple IPA

Heavy hitter here! Lemon Madelines covered in dark caramel, cola, orange zest, aged rum, fine tobacco, vanilla, baked blood of tubers, roasted chestnuts. The palate is aggressive as a sleeping beast caught unawares. An awkward silence, impending clash, metallic taste. Ethiopian coffee-candy, burnt cinnamon roll, honey-maple babies, brown sugar, licorice extract ash, African dream tea, Fernet branca tonic. Lingering dark aftertastes. Heavy and potent as the surprised eyes of the roused beast. Lunge. — 4 years ago

Château Ferrande

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

A cor não é tão escura, tem tons que começam a ser mais marrons. Tem densidade e lagrimas lentas. O aroma lembra couro camurça, não tem álcool destacado, banana passa, e também madeira. Na boca o vinho chama atenção, tem taninos fortes, e bastante rastro. Tem características bem secas, parece uma bebida forte, mas o álcool parece bem misturado ao demias sabores, a madeira parece bem diferente das madeiras dos chilenos. — a year ago
