Organically made. Medium-deep old brass colour. Big nose rises out of the snifter with honey, ripe pear, stewed peaches, raw tobacco and caramel — aromas don’t get much better than this. On the palate it offers golden raisins and ripe peaches and pears, but the alcohol is a bit hot and the finish is woody.
From a serious year in Bordeaux, the complex blend of varietals produces complex aromas. Opaquely deep, with a hue just on the young side of garnet. Rich port-like nose of black cherry, seasoned with a tinge of absinthe. On the palate there are black cherry, prune nectar and chocolate, woody flavours with soft tannins and a long finish. Will coast for a while, but at its best now.
Brouilly is one of the ten crus (named villages) in the northern Beaujolais region. This example has all the charm you expect from this ready-to-drink wine. Deep purple in colour, it offers a lightly floral nose of ripe plums. It is medium-bodied, dry and juicy, with cherry and red plum flavours with balancing acidity. You can drink it at room temperature with light meat dishes or chill it to bring out the freshness and serve it with tuna.
The nose warms up your soul immediately. Rich appealing combination of dark plum, raspberries, black olive and dried herbs brings you immediately to the sunny clime of the Roussillon. Full body with soft tannins and well-integrated 13.5% abv. A beautiful wine to welcome the fall. Particularly delicious with grilled lamb.
Pure and precise with the delicate charm that Pinot is capable of expressing in the commune of Marsannay. Bright acid with lush aromas cherries and wild strawberries that end on subtle mineral notes. Delicate enough to sip alone but enough character to serve with grilled salmon. Love at first sight!
Clear pale orange-tinged pink. Faint but pleasant nose of apple, yielding to candy apple and floral scents over time in the glass. Light-bodied, with lemon and cranberry flavours. Better served not too cold. Worked well with BBQ ribs. Drink up.
When you find a great Burgundy at that price, you buy as much as you can. That is what I did. Rich with a creamy texture and delectable palate where notes of butter, vanilla and lemon are in symbiosis and balanced by bright acid. Long lingering finish. In a blind tasting, I would be fooled into thinking this is a Meursault. Lobster’s best friend. Outstanding value!
