Noble Cuvée Selezione Grand Vintage Franciacorta White Blend

Finally, after several years, I was able to get ahold of a Franciacorta! Traditional Method, 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero, aged 7 months in stainless steel, then secondary fermentation in bottle, aged on lees for 30 months as a non vintage. For $26, it was better than most champagne. It was like a baby Ruinart Blanc de Blanc in character. Aromas of Meyer lemon zest, clover honey, ripe apricot, brioche, and candied ginger. Pallet full of fine, and very present bubbles, exhibiting notes of golden apples, pineapple, white pear, lemon, creme brulee, clove, and a zippy finish. The bottle was empty way to fast. — 3 days ago

Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

On a crystal clear sub-zero, star bright night, the snow pack on the mountains gleaming and the fire roaring we attended the first of several parties for friends moving to the interior of BC . We opened the night sharing another of our old loyal friends that never lets us down Taittinger Reserve Brut Champagne. Still lovingly family owned in an age of conglomerates “Old Taitts” blends 40% Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière into a superb blend that giggles on the light and cheery side. A lovely aperitif to start a night with old friends. 12% alc/vol Cheers 🥂 — a day ago

2016. A fine beed of Dolomite limestone, so mineral and ripe and tropical at the same time, with bergamot zest, ananas and white flowers. Reminiscent of Chassagne or better Mersault texture and structure. A bit coarse, young for sure, very interesting as always — 16 days ago

First of the blind white wines for our South African blind tasting. This bottling by Keermont Vineyards is still just a baby that needs some time to fully open up and needs to be around cellar temperature to be enjoyed. Light pale yellow with a muted nose. A touch of floral notes and a little bit of stone/tropical fruits. High acidity (7/10) with a slow attack moving towards a medium to medium plus body. Notes of lemon zest, peaches, and solid minerality on the palate. Really pulls nicely together with the acidity in the long finish. Drink till 2027.

I think
@David L can attest to the value and deliciousness of this bottling!

The Fidelio Napa Valley White

What a truly interesting SB. The nose LEAPS out of the glass. Stone fruit, lychee, elderflower, citrus, minerality, and so on. A must try for those who like the new world SB style. — 4 days ago

Carlo Pellegrino

Pantelleria Passito Liquoroso 2016

Colour of rich bronze. Notes of Apricot and with air hints of pineapple. Very sweet but with enough acid to not be cloyingly sweet. The grape is Muscat of Alexandria 100%. — 5 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Brut Champagne

Reminiscent of Chardonnay based sparklers from prestigious vineyards based in areas such as Ambonnay or Mensil Sur Ogre. Strong bright acidity with green apple and citrus notes on the nose followed by a pleasing body with biscuit and toast hints on the palate combined with a minerality reminiscent of crushed oyster shell and pebbled rock. Would easily compete with vintage offerings from top producers like Andre or Cooks. — a day ago
