Rare Millésimé Brut Champagne Blend 2008

Super bright and fresh. A serious spine of acid, pretty sweetness and great fruit with hints of green apple. Dazzling. Still v young with huge upside — 17 days ago

Charleston Special Reserve Sercial Madeira

Delectable Wine
9.2

The Madeira Charleston Sercial Special Reserve is a light-bodied, floral Maderia. Dried flowers, mint, cinnamon, pine, cedar and mint are nicely delineated. Vineyards at elevation yield grapes that are harvested late at relatively lower sugars, yielding a Madeira that is especially dry. There’s good complexity here. The Sercial is a fine choice for readers who appreciate the drier style of Madeira. L22136. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2022)

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Rare Vintage Rosé Champagne

Starting with bubbles today on this hot summer night at just below a 100 F. Very refreshing, prickly acidity edged by slight hints of peach and cantaloupe and hazelnuts … I think. Not a connoisseur on Champagne. But I liked it!! Very balanced and easy to drink. — 6 months ago

Delectable Wine
9.2

The Madeira New York Malmsey Special Reserve is a rich, heady wine. It offers gorgeous depth and layers that open beautifully in the glass. Dried flowers, cloves, fruitcake, leather, chocolate, cedar and tobacco are nicely amplified in this generous, inviting Madeira. All the elements are so well balanced. This is a stand-out. L22209.

The Rare Wine Co. Historic Series Boston Madeira Special Reserve Bual

Delectable Wine
9.3

The Madeira Boston Bual Special Reserve is one of the richest and most potent of the Madeiras in the Rare Wine Co.’s Historic Series. A dark, brooding Madeira, the Boston Bual is packed with dark macerated cherry, mocha, spice, worn-in leather, tobacco and dried herbs. It’s a beautiful Madeira to drink at the end of a meal with cheese or bittersweet chocolate, which seems like the most obvious choice. This is an especially large-scaled, dramatic Madeira. L22203.
