Vollbier Hell

A very nice Hells beer. Brewed by one of the last remaining Monastery breweries in Germany. This beer shows that through its smooth taste, with good hops and malt balance and the slight sweetness for which Hells/Helles is known. — 9 months ago

Monastero Suore Cistercensi

Benedic Red Blend 2019

Unpretentious, easy-drinking blend of Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo by Paolo Bea - benchmark producer of natural wines - and the nuns at the Cistercian monastery in Vitorchiano in Lazio (coenobium is the Latin for monastery). Fermented with wild yeasts. Pale, slightly cloudy cherry color. Red fruit (cherry, strawberry jam) aromas and flavors. Earthy and floral notes and a hint of tobacco and herbs. Fruit-forward, medium bodied, great acidity. Nice rusticity. Very pleasant — 3 years ago

Meteora Limniona 2015

Great story — rare indigenous grape variety from a disused vineyard formerly framed by monks at the neighbouring monastery. Could easily be mistaken for Italian. Lots of interesting wines coming from Greece these days. — 4 years ago

Château de la Louvière

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Nice 👍🏼
Dark Web info

Château La Louvière has many fascinating facets. The sumptuous architecture of the château building dates from the late 18th century, but winegrowing here goes back more than 700 years. The first vines were planted circa 1310, although modern winemaking dates from the 17th century and was handed down by able monks from the Carthusian monastery in Bordeaux, who had acquired considerable talent as viticulturists and winemakers. The people who produce the wine in the 21st century have inherited these time-honoured methods, adding just the right amount of innovation and modernity to make the utmost of the outstanding terroir. La Louvière's red wine has a dark colour and an elegant bouquet with delicate hints of oak...

Zilavka 2016

Like a more minerally vermentino. Not sweet but fruit present and balanced by food friendly acid. Smooth overall, no sharp edges but not flabby. — 3 years ago

Les Halos de Jupiter

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

A magazine I used to love, one of the early editions I owned from September 2014 pictured above. Found it on an old bookshelf from when I shipped boxes and boxes of books to my parents home. Not sure how Monocle’s doing these days. I do wish I was 23 again, though.

Very pleasant aroma, similar to Vacqueyras appellation reds, but less peppery, more nuanced and smooth fragrances of peaches and rose petals.

Bouquet matches the flavor profile. Absolutely beautiful mouthfeel, silken and luxurious. Berry medley compote, slight black currant spice kick but not too much, vanilla, and essence of mint.

Lovely. Might as well be at a French monastery enjoying a Spring breeze. This would be great with lamb or ripe, creamy cheeses.
