Serres Ranch

Bordeaux-Style Malbec Blend 2018

Serres Ranch Winery Estate Grown Bordeaux Style Blend Watriss 2018, Sonoma Valley, California

It's time for some Merlot on this
#MerlotThursday.

A very pretty color of dark dark ruby, almost inky, with a wide reddish rim.

Strong nose of black cherries, black plums, crushed raspberries, wildflowers, cedar, spices, milk chocolates and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, spices, oak, light vanilla, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, light earth, herbs, chili powder and black tea.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very nice Bordeaux blend from Sonoma Valley. Nicely balanced with lots of fruits to match the acidity.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, so be patient, that's when tannins and more structure come in. worth the wait.

Already drinking very nicely, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

Fruit forward with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.

Good by itself and good with food. A good quality wine that will pair nicely with game meats. I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 34% Merlot, 30% Malbec, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit verdot. Aged separately for two years in French oak barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$65.

Domaine des Marronniers

Cremant de Bourgogne

You need to proactively seek out the differences between this wonderful little Cremant and a good house champagne. This has brioche, toast, piercing acid - well beyond what you’d expect for the price.

Nuanced aroma and flavor - sweet apple core, pear, little specs of cinnamon. And lingering lemony sour. It all comes together so nicely.

Billecart-Salmon

RENDEZ-VOUS NO.1 Meunier Extra Brut

A single varietal Meunier from Billecart-Salmon? I’m sold, completely. A really attractive pale lemon with fine bubbles and energetic effervescence. This starts off quite closed in and offering not much on the nose but with a little time in the glass but then evolves into something special. Floral aromatics first, with a hint of jasmine and white flowers. There are some nice herbal and yeast notes here. The fruit eventually takes over with orange peel, plums, and a dollop of red cherries.

A one off champagne from one of the giants of the region. So many great things are being done with Pinot Meunier nowadays that they couldn’t resist crafting this. Straight out of the Vallée de la Marne, specifically Leuvrigny, Festigny, and Venteuil and vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged for a little over four years. The acidity is racy and so nice with the Extra Brut dosage of 4.5 g/l. Based on the 2014 vintage and consisting of 1/3 reserve wine.

A champagne that’s big on vinosity. Very clean and focused with tension and precision. Bone dry and still in its youthful phase, there’s an immediate burst of minerality in the mouth. Red apples and peaches with a streak of honey throughout. A long and generous finish. So much fun and will be even better in the future.

Bollinger

La Grande Année Brut Rosé 2012

This superstar 2012 vintage just doesn’t seem to miss. Especially not when paired with the elegance of Bollinger.

A gorgeous rose copper color in the glass. Plenty of fine bubbles that seem to just go on and on. The approachability of these outstanding 12’s is immediate. Wild strawberries and herbs shine on the nose. Red currant, raspberries, and stewed plums. Some exquisite spice notes along with white flowers. Tangerines and watermelons play a part.

The vitality and sheer energy of this is amazing. 67% Pinot Noir from Aÿ and Verzenay. 33% Chardonnay from Oiry and Le Mesnil sur Oger with 5% still red wine from Bollinger’s legendary Côte aux Enfants vineyard. Terrific youthful tension and balance. Zippy acidity with 8 g/l of sugar. Disgorged in August of 2019 and already showing some maturity.

Pure romance on the tongue. Silky smooth and elegant with fresh red berries and more spice on the palate. Saffron and honey with oak complimenting. The Lehmann Jamesse Grand Blanc provided more floral notes, while the Riedel Dom Perignon showed more ripe fruit and minerality. Both wonderful. Yes this will obviously develop over time and become so much more special but you deserve this now. So do I. Enjoy.

Magic of Ju-Ju Melon de Bourgogne Chenin Blanc 2019

Reductive on opening and has, well, mostly blown off after a few hours. A hint of quince and green apple. Underripe green fruit. Brisk crispness and zesty acid, some pretty Chenin texture on the palate. Magic would be an overstatement. — 4 days ago

Brut Nature Sparkling Rosé

Champagne rather than sparkling wine i would say @Delectable Wine
Rose de Saignée pur Pinot noir
Sol argilo-calcaire avec une majorité d'argile grise
Pour reveler tous ses aromes, seervez ce vin à 11
Like all Ruppert-Leroy Champagne this is BRUT NATURE
harvest 2016 and degorged 2019
11% only
It has scent of rasperry, cola, tobacco, roses and more
Searing minerality and quite robust nonetheless the low alcohol.
I loved the colour that had a bit the shade of the rust, but brilliant though
No added sulphites
Made just with 🍇🍇🍇
