  • 📷 and notes by @hansc008
    Ridge's Monte Bello has become one of my favorite Californian wine and I was looking forward to opening a bottle of the 1995 vintage.
    It needed around an hour in the Zalto to open up.
    The nose had blackberries, cassis, spices, leather and some pencil shavings.
    It is full bodied with some tannins still present.
    There's a good amount of acidity with enough fruit a good minerality and a little spiciness to complement.
    This is an absolute blockbuster that is coming around beautifully. It still has a long life ahead.
    One of the best Monte Bello I ever had!
    Kudos @ridgevineyards

  • @fontodi1968 - “Case Via” Syrah - Colli Toscana Centrale IGT - 2009 🍇 100% Syrah
    📍 Panzano in Chianti (FI)
    ⛰ Case Via, Pecille (esposizione sud)
    🗿 Galestro
    🖐 Raccolta manuale, doppia selezione
    🍁 Guyot
    ⏳Fermentazione spontanea, macerazione con frequenti follature in vasche di acciaio. 12 mesi di affinamento in barriques di Allier e Tronçais.
    #️⃣ 6.000 bottiglie
    🌡 14% Vol.
    🕰 oltre 15 anni

    Passiamo ad una delle due chicche internazionali che produce Fontodi. In questo caso ci troviamo di fronte ad un Syrah 100%. Il colore è un rosso rubino carico, impenetrabile nonostante i quasi 10 anni sulle spalle. Al naso è potente, complesso ed elegante. Mi sembra più uno Shiraz australiano che francese. Ben presente e vivo un frutto rosso sotto spirito, precedentemente introdotto dalla viola. Nota tipica di pepe, chiodo di garofano, goudron. Le spezie sono intense ma mai troppo penetranti. Si aggiunge una nota di polvere di caffè e di cacao amaro. Al palato è caldo, avvolgente, di grande struttura ma anche con una buona freschezza ed un tannnino molto sottile dalla trama molto fitta. Nel sorso si percepisce anche una bella piccantezza piacevole e non invasiva. Finale lungo, ancora con nota di caffè e cacao a cui si aggiungono fresche note di erbe officinali. Dicevo più verso uno stile australiano che francese per la potenza ma anche per la grande acidità e mineralità.

  • ‼️QUIZ TIME‼️
    A volte si rimane a bocca aperta😦

    Questo è quello che succede quando nei Quiz bisogna selezionare la bottiglia BORDOLESE

    Lo so per alcuni non è facile.

    Riproviamoci 😜
    Se scorri le foto troverai due bottiglie.

    La Bordolese è la bottiglia che trovi a...
    Destra o Sinistra?

    In bocca al lupo e via con i commenti

  • Cold winter nights, call for a glass of warming red wine 🍷
    The #2016 Phoenix from @hudsonranch is, to say the least, exactly what the doctor ordered! Lee Hudson has long been an admired grower and winemaker in California and we could not be more excited to share his wines with you.

  • Some perspectives on 2003 white burgundy (Part 1 of 3)

    Extreme heat, low acidity and hydric stress resulted in short lived flabby wines with a historically short shelf live. That is if you believe what you read. My advice to all wine enthusiast in the new year is to read less and taste more. There is really no substitute for first hand tasting experience.

    Back to 2003 in which the weather certainly marked the style of all wines but here is where the great growers leave the mediocre ones behind.

    This Batard Montrachet 2003 is the flagship of Pierre Morey’s own domaine (as the Montrachet is a Morey-Blanc négoce bottling). Situated on the top part of Batard Montrachet on the Puligny side it would certainly be the most beneficial place within the appellation in a such year.

    Explosive aromatics with a huge array of tropical fruits, popcorn, roasted oriental spice and a distinct meaty note of bacon. Palate is slightly less opulent than you might expect but what truly amazed me is an undisputable reductive minerally core which actually got more pronounced with air. The mid palate actually tightened up in the glass and the acidity was more than decent in the context of the vintage. Intriguing and atypical burgundy.
