🍷❗️Have you recently tasted a 2003 bordeaux❓ This Grand-Puy-Lacoste is beautiful to drink now. . Captivating nose of dark fruits, baking spices, cigar box and forest floor, intense mouthfeel with smooth texture, ample volume and excellent concentration, multilayered flavours of black currant, blackberry, cherry, liquorice and hints of chocolate supported by a firm mineral backbone, ripe acidity and integrated tannins leading onto a long, appealing finish. There has always been lingering scepticism about the staying power of 2003 bordeaux given the extreme weather conditions during that vintage. Drinking beautifully well now, this has evolved into a delightful wine with fine balance and fascinating poise. It’s rich and intense without ever straying into jammy or heady, and there is still enough fruit freshness that makes it quite enjoyable. I have a soft spot for this estate which consistently punches above its weight by delivering, even in hot years like 2003, brilliant wines at great value 😊🍷 . Blend of 72% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot and 2% cabernet franc from 38 year-old vines, on gravel, silt, sand and clay soil over limestone subsoil. . In the same lineage of connected families during 200 years since its creation in the 1730s, Grand-Puy-Lacoste was sold in 1932 to Raymond Dupin who had a monumental reputation for his hospitality but sadly neglected his estate in the 1960s and 1970s. When Jean-Eugène Borie of Ducru-Beaucaillou acquired the estate in 1978, the vineyard was just half of its original size and the château itself was in a poor state of disrepair. Under the aegis of François-Xavier Borie, Jean-Eugène’s son, massive renovation and modernisation works were quickly rolled out, just in time to produce an outstanding wine in 1982. Since then, this estate has gone from strength to strength to outperform its 5th growth classification. . . . #bordeauxwine #pauillac #grandpuylacoste #winelover #winetime #wineoclock #winetasting #tastingnotes #winelife #wine #vin #vino #wino #wineporn #winestagram #wineenthusiast #wineblogger #somm #sommelier #instawine #drinkstagram #hkwinelovers #winebeast

Faustino is a classic and it tastes even better when you manage to get such an aggressive discount. The retail price is £11 and it is discounted to £8.5. On the top of that, an extra 25% discount is applied when you buy 5 more bottles (of any wine). Final price: £6.37. A bargain! It looks medium ruby (almost no signs of brown) and aromas have a medium intensity initially, becoming pronounced after some time. Fruit (mainly red berries and plum) is turning jammy and dried fruit (prune - from bottle ageing) is noticed. Also pecan, vanilla, smoke and black pepper. The palate is very dry, alcohol is well balanced and acidity is high. Its body is medium, tannins are very thin and slightly grippy and the aftertaste is quite fresh. Flavour intensity is very good for a relatively inexpensive Rioja Reserva. This wine is developed and there is, in my opinion, no need for further ageing. Despite not being a very sophisticated wine, it shows typicity and it delivers the characteristics expected from a Reserva level Rioja. Very good! I got this from ASDA. Every now and again they do the 25% off when buying 6. Other places do it too but unlike ASDA, the discount is applied on full prices, making it not so attractive. Do you know any good wine deals? Have a good week! #winedeal #rioja #riojawine #winelover #spanishwine #tempranillo #vino #vinho #winetasting #wine #winetime #wineoclock #sommelier #vinorosso #wineaddict #wset #faustino #wineporn #foodlover #goodwine #ilovewine #bomvinho

La Maison di Champagne Agrapart et Fils, situata ad Avize nel cuore della Côte de Blancs, è stata fondata da Arthur Agrapart nel 1894. Oggi siamo ormai giunti alla quarta generazione grazie ai fratelli Pascal e Fabrice, che continuano nel solco della tradizione familiare a produrre dei vini dalla qualità eccelsa, non vengono utilizzati pesticidi chimici o diserbanti, e sia il lavoro in vigna che il lavoro in cantina seguono i ritmi della natura. Grande cura in coltivazioni, biodiversità come fattore di preservazione della vigna, aratura esclusivamente a cavallo, attenzioni maniacali in cantina. Il Brut Blanc de Blancs “Les 7 Crus” è uno Champagne realizzato con le uve provenienti da 7 prestigiosi vigneti della Maison Agrapart, scelti per la loro storica e consolidata qualità. Si tratta di piccole parcelle situate nelle migliori zone della Côte des Blancs e della Montagne de Reims. Le vigne hanno un’età media di 40 anni, con numerose parcelle di oltre 65 anni e ogni vigneto viene vinificato separatamente con utilizzo di soli lieviti indigeni. Parte dei vins clairs, si affinano per un lungo periodo a contatto delle fecce fini in barrique dove svolgono la malolattica prima di procedere alla creazione dell’assemblaggio finale. 36 mesi sui lieviti per questo champagne che nel calice si presenta di un giallo paglierino brillante con riflessi dorati con un perlage molto fine e persistente. Al naso esprime sensazioni gessose e iodate, aromi agrumati, di frutta bianca, sentori speziati e tostati. Al palato ha una freschezza vivace e tesa, che dona slancio al sorso. La chiusura è lunga e persistente con belle note sapide. Uno dei miei champagne preferiti, voi amici lo conoscete..?? Che ne pensate.? . . #wineporn #sommelier #champagne #champagnelover #champagnetime #avize #reims #sparklingwine #winetime #winelover #winelife #winelifestyle #winery #cellar #vin #france #champagnepapi #whitewine #vinobianco #bollicine #wineo #wineoclock #sommlife #somm #wineblogger #winetasting #degustazione #winepassion #wine #vinonaturale

Луарский КабФран - нынче модное явление. Казалось бы, совсем недавно, году в 2014м его в России было лишь пару этикеток, а сейчас десятки производителей из апеласьонов Chinon, Bourgueil, Saumur-Champigny. Ароматика этих пикантных вин держится на трëх китах: лесные ягоды, пряно-овощные тона и анималистика (а.к.а. "морс, говно и перец"). Это яркое сочетание делит людей на его ярых поклонников и тех, кто не готов принять. Недавно поймал себя на мысли, что несколько устал от этого сорта. Нет желания делать #факультетэнотрии по топовым винам, да и в целом пульс не скачет во время дегустации. Может это временно, но похоже и в винных картах передовых ресторанов он уступает место Северной Роне и другим "пряным" винам. Дак что же это такое было? Просто волна очередного тренда, или красная Луара заняла своë место в пантеоне классических вин? Является ли её присутствие в винной карте обязательным? Так ли велико разнообразие внутри категории? Пишите в комментарии ваши наблюдения, а заодно и любимых луарцев, а я пока повращаю в бокале Бретон/Шинон/ЛеБоМон. Он кстати больше про ягоды.

Creme #4 Strekov es el viticultor que elabora este vino en el Región de Nitra en Eslovaquia con sus viñedos de uva Devín, en su elaboración pasa 15 meses con las lías y completa una fermentación manoláctica que da un sabor cremoso pero con una acidez marcada para compensarla. Perfecto para acompañar alimentos grasos. Este pet-nat naranja es una propuesta tradicional de los vinos eslovacos. Disponible en nuestra tienda y barra degustación.
