The 2012 Pinot Noir Botanica is Maggie Harrison's more fruit-driven take on Pinot Noir, instigated after she noticed a difference with a small number of barrels in her debut 2007 vintage. It has more sappy, "sanguine" red fruit compared to the Botanica, to use her own vernacular. It has a very pure bouquet that offers gorgeous wilted violet and seaweed...
The playful label of this wine showcases the 100% Malbec, 100% Organic and naturally farmed wine. This everyday drinker has a deep red color with violet hues and typical Malbec aromas of fresh fruit and hints of plums and cherries. This is fair trade certified and suitable for vegans. Pair with beef, lamb or poultry (or pizza)
Vibrant and energetic, this Puligny shows its class with clear minerality and terroir expression. The precise palate is beautifully balanced, with a fine thread of acidity framing the pure flavors of lime zest, green apple, wet limestone and a touch of sea salt. Exceptional. Credit - Skurnik Wines
3rd wine of Chateau Margaux - the 2011 vintage benefited from ideal weather conditions. Consequently, the vast majority of the Chateau Margaux vines reached perfect ripeness, resulting in not only an excellent Grand Vin and Pavillon Rouge but a very fine Margaux du Château Margaux, as well. These wines are the fruit of a rigorous selection process. Indeed, all grapes from the...
The 2008 Dom Pérignon Champagne is once again stunning. More than anything else, I am surprised by how well the 2008 drinks given all the tension and energy it holds. Then again, that is precisely what makes 2008 such a unique vintage – namely that the best wines are so chiseled and yet not at all austere. Lemon peel, almond,...
One of the most difficult-to-find California wines, Marcassin produce world class Pinot Noir – a California version of a grand cru from Burgundy. This deep plum/garnet-coloured wine offers intense berry fruit along with forest floor, spice box, earth and loads of plum, cherry and strawberry notes, moving towards darker fruits, as well as earthy, autumnal, foresty scents. The wine is...
Smoky and dense but surprisingly lively and penetrating, offering powerful citrus fruit and red berry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Vinous
"The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication...
Notes of raspberry, spices and mint jump from the glass in a seductive combination. Plushly creamy in texture with a steely streak of acidity well-knit throughout and firming the lasting, spiced finish. A great brunch Champagne!
Site-typically musky notes of narcissus mingle with anticipations of the bright lime and pure, luscious white peach that dominate a silken, subtly oily, expansive palate. The layering of inner-mouth floral perfume, high-toned green herbal essences and mouthwateringly scallop-like savor is hugely impressive, leading to a finish whose musky bittersweetness reminds me of sucking on the stem-end of honeysuckle blossoms; whose...
A wonderful kaleidoscope of yellow fruit, crushed stone, honeysuckle, ant nectarine. The palate is extremely well-balanced with complex flavors of quince and white peach, backed by a strong foundation of pristine minerality. This wine is poised and spellbinding Credit - Skurnik Wines
