Château Latour

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Deep ruby almost purple hue with secondary influences of garnet. Blackberry, creme de cassis, molasses, anise, vanilla, baking spices, earth, mushrooms, leather, and tobacco notes; soft tannins, smooth on the palate; everything is in balance to deliver a deliciously elegant complement to the meal. ABV 13%. Vintage 2005. #lesfortsdelatour #lesfortsdelatour2005 #pauillac #pauillacdelatour #medoc #medocwines #frenchieattitude #winedown2019 — 2 years ago

Laurent-Perrier

Cuvée Rosé Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

Freshly baked sourdough, white flowers, blanched almonds, tart cherries, and green apple. Dry and crisp. All wrapped up in a beautiful pale salmon hue with lively effervescence. #laurentperrierrose #laurentperrier #champagne #newyearsweekend #getaway #frenchchampagne #rosechampagne #methodechampenoise #winetime #winedown2019 #holidays #aurevoir2019 #boldnorthmn — 2 years ago

Billecart-Salmon

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Reflecting on 2019 through rosé-colored glasses. Cheers to the end of a decade and beginning of another. May 2020 bring the promise of many new adventures!

Pale salmon hue with teeny tiny bubbles racing to the top of my glass. Green apple, grapefruit peel, tart cherry, fresh raspberry, dried rose petals, blanched almonds, dusty chalk, and yeast notes. Long, elegant finish.
