Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Just like the African Bush, don’t come to the Egyptian Desert without it.

Celebrating the ending of a great trip on the eve of our last day at The Old Cataract on the Nile River with one of our very favorite N/V Rosé Champange’s.

Photos of; the pano view of the Nile River from our terrace, Sofia holding our other 375ml bottle BSR we brought from the US, the lobby of the Old Cataract and the grounds of the Old Cataract Hotel.

9.3 on the Billecart-Salmon Rosé and a 9.9 on our trip!

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

Enjoyed from a split last night. This makes you feel better about your alcohol consumption when you only drink at 375 in 25 minutes. Well, maybe not. This is Krug, so do I really need to describe it? Not oxidative or reductive. Draws the perfect fine line in the sand between the two factions. And does each one impeccably well. I'm in love. — a year ago

Château d'Armailhac

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Shay A

Was only able to enjoy this at pop and pour and had to leave after half the bottle, but it didn’t need a lot of coaxing. Very ripe and integrated. Full spectrum of red and black fruit, cassis, pipe tobacco and worn saddle leather on the nose. Structure was still very solid with plenty of tannins at the finish to keep this upright. Round on the palate...dark cocoa dusted dates, roasted plum, cardamom and muddled raspberries. Drinking really well but will probably hold in this window for a few years. — a year ago

This was showing lots of floral & spice. Dark cherry, berry, leather, menthol, licorice, tar & rose petal. This was the best showing for this wine. — a year ago

Belle Epoque Rosé Brut Champagne Blend 2004

Bright red berries, hints of spice, and some flowery notes. Amazing nose that kept you coming back to the glass. Great on its own and with appetizers. LOVE! — a year ago

Au Bon Climat

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Planted in 1971, the fruit was selected from the oldest section of Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. Aromas of berry fruit with subtle floral and spice, aged for 22 months in new French oak. On the palate raspberry and cherry fruit flavors, a bit crisp with light oak tones. Firm tannins, a bit tight, lingering, ending with mineral notes. Very nice, but needs a bit more time. — a year ago
