Château de Corcelles

Vieilles Vignes Brouilly Gamay 2020

Overachieving #brouilly. Give it a half-hour or so to open up; cherry compote, faint sous bois aromas, bright acidity, sour cherry palate. Lovely, food-friendly wine with solid QPR #costcowines — a month ago

Bella Conchi

Brut Reserva Cava Blend

Here’s a #cava with gusto - let it warm up a bit in the glass, crushed stone, citrus, faint yeasty nose; fine bubbles up front on palate followed by cool salted lemon peel. Quite tasty! #costcowines — 3 months ago

Petra

Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2017

This wine pours a perfect ruby red. It has a nice nose. Flavors of cranberries, some dried fruit, a bit of oak and maybe cedar. The old world essence is slightly there. After it had been open for just a little while, maybe 20 minutes the tenants really broke out. Wonderfully. It was a tremendous value at Costco for only $10 a bottle. A definite re-buy. #toscana #tuscany #italianwines #costcowines — a year ago

Jambon Père & Fils

Sélection Vieilles Vignes Brouilly Gamay 2019

Enjoyable Cru Beaujolais - dried cherry, cured meat, nutty caramel nose. Balanced palate, earthy laid-back fruit, prominent chewy tannins and dried fruit on a long finish. #brouilly #costcowines — 2 months ago

Rocche di Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

This wine pours a clear rust red. It has aromas of leather on the nose. It has flavors of dried fruit that are restrained a bit. Strong structured tannins were present which I think is a trade mark. We decanted the wine for about 90 minutes first. It went very well with the grass fed ribeyes and lobster we cooked for my son-in-law’s birthday. That said, I was expecting more. I really thought it would blow me away and it didn’t. It was good, just not great. I don’t think it was too expensive at Costco. Although I got it before I kept track of how much I paid for wines. #barolowine #nebbiolo #piedmontwines #italianwines #costcowines — 4 months ago

Arlaux

Brut Grande Cuvée Premier Cru Champagne Blend

What a darling #champagne! Nose fairly closed when cold, touches of yeasty notes. Palate is incredible, dosage is perfect, so much verve and energy with fine bubbles on the palate. Need to pick up more of this. #costcowines — 2 months ago

Kirkland Signature

Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio 2022

QPR - what happens when the bottom number, $, goes really small? Ans: QPR thorough the roof. This #friuli #pinotgrigio is rockin’ : lemon, touch of white flowers, some crushed limestone aromas. Delicious acidity up front, some beeswax, lemon oil, more weighty on palate than you would expect, crisp finish. Irrationally quaffable at $5 a bottle - thank you #costcowines — 7 months ago

Zum Martin Sepp

Martins Grüner Veltliner 2021

Pleasing, if not very complex #grüner - rather muted nose of dried white flowers, bit of citrus. Lively acidity on palate, some beeswax but initial zippiness when opening this 1L is gone. That acidity and subtlety paired nicely with pan seared cod with garlic and pepper. Good QPR #costcowines — a year ago
