Bubulle Pét' Nat' Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

Montlouis sparklers always seem to slap. The unicorn cartoon on the cage is a not so subtle hint of how this producer feel about this wine. At the price point, I feel the same! — 4 months ago

I love chenin bubbles

Escándalo

Valle de Colchagua Carignan 2019

Now here is a unicorn: a Chilean Carignan, with enough earthiness & terroir to make me think, with a smile… Moulin a Vent? Dark cherries, cocoa nibs, some underbrush, wrapped in a medium plus acidity. Importer Rare Wine Co. well done. About 20$,too. — 6 months ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1991

Popped for our 30th and taken to Sons & Daughters in SF. Great young, dark purple color. Exotic nose. Notes of plum, black cherry, some eucalyptus, mocha, old leather, dark moist earth, some dark chocolate and some anise. It’s a kaleidescape of smells. Still rich and silky in the mouth. So much fruit, with structure to match. Such a great unicorn wine. — 9 months ago

Fantastic line-up, Mike!
Suppose it’s the white Haut Brion that you are rating? That’s a true unicorn indeed…!
Larrivet is nice too though, but not as special as Real Deal…☺️

What a unicorn. So did you know this was made by the great chef de caves ‘maudiere’ of @dom perignon and harveates from Monterey county grapes In 1983. It was only discourged and bottled recently. Only en magnum. Our buddy fred dame bought them all and presented one tonight. Alright, not ethereal, definitely a treat with a cool story.
Monterey baby!!!!! Thanks Fred and go GWC

Fortunate to have enjoyed a few of these courtesy of a generous friend (who opened this bottle). I wish I could enjoy them more often because I find these in a totally different stratosphere than regular Dom. The richness comes out to play and is so powerful. A bit more yeasty than regular Dom in a great way. Incredible every time.

Enderle & Moll

Muschelkalk Pinot Noir 2009

What can I say? Needs about 30 min of air odd at first and than absolutely brillant. Raspberry driven, thyme, touch oregano, lime, quite tannic at first which mellows out in the glass over time. Drink now or keep for 1-2 years more. A benchmark wine. A unicorn, A singleton, no one makes wine like Enderle & Moll. A perfect match with Salmon. Needs food. — 5 months ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1950

It’s alive! Tertiary aromas of earth, leaf and red fruit compote. Amazing acid balance, vibrant red color with little bricking. Sweet, resolved tannins. Improves with aeration. Unicorn wine. — 8 months ago

Awesome! How long and what method used for aeration?

Used the Durand cork screw/fork for cork removal. Just your basic very slow decanting as the wine presented itself in good shape upon opening. Waited 10 mins, then poured. I prefer to watch the wine’s evolution over time. Sometimes theses wines pass too quickly in the decanter.
