Some may find it wasteful — others, baller — others, don’t care either way. Making Aperol spritzes with VC rosé, why not. Got to celebrate the journey and that’s what we are doing today in Mt. Airy, Phila, PA, year of our lord 2021. Cheers to the amazing @Caroline Graham for going all the way. — 3 years ago
It’s pretty rare that a House’s entry level bottle can challenge other House’s more prestigious offerings. A pale gold hue with truly a plethora of lively bubbles. Impressive perlage. The nose is powerful and engaging. Strong notes of honey and green apples with butterscotch and lemon peels. A smorgasbord of delightful citrus aromas and brioche bread really elevate this.
Almost equal parts of the three Champenois grapes with a dosage of 7 g/l. Disgorged on 7/20 and using 35% of reserve wines, there is a depth to the champagne that many others simply can not compare with. It starts off a bit angular but soon develops nicely in the glass. The acidity is bright, the body full, and the mouthfeel rich. Biodynamic without certification.
The palate is the definition of precise with crisp fruit and beautiful chalky minerality. Pears, grapefruits, and light red cherries shine. Toasted bread, nuts, and more autolytic touches. Marzipan and a little oak just for kicks. This is outstanding wine and can stand proudly next to some of the bigger boys out there. — 3 years ago
My first Caymus experience: smooth, silky and so well refined I understand the price tag. Oh so perfect on the nose and Initial entry on the palette, tapering to a full bodied experience that can convince anyone of the province of fine Californian wine! — 3 years ago
Beautiful, very pale ruby appearance - although almost pink like stewed rhubarb. Pronounced on the nose, and then an array of varying red fruits, cranberry, strawberry, red currant. High acidity across the tongue, soft tannins and med high alcohol really make this wine a treat. Partial carbonic maceration really adds to the character of this wine by the master Guy Breton. Highly recommend 👍 — 3 years ago
