Awesome elegant Sauternes like nuances. A symphony of notes evolving through the time it took me to finish the bottle. Hard to go back after trying this level of champagne... a true reference for my other bottles to be measured against. Bravo! — 18 days ago

1000 de Chipuri

Wild Carpathia Collection

This wine has an alcohol percentage of 16,5%. Obviously it’s my favorise Romanian wine so far.

Preferably to be drunk while Anthony is looking at you in contempt, drinking his sour Pinot Noir.
