  • Illustrious history surrounds @chateaupavieofficiel which along with Ausone have been planted by Ancient Romans in the 4th century. Beautiful property, one could really appreciate it  full splendour visiting their 42he of vineyards planted on limestone and clay to  60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The revival of Pavie begun in 1998  with Gerard and Chantelle Perse being this iconic property improving all aspect from vineyards which were in the bad shape trough complete rebuild of state of the art winery. Fast forward 20 years Pavie is back to the pantheon of top producers unsurprisingly scoring three digits from RP for vintages 2016/ 2010/2009/2005/2000 with plenty great efforts in between such 2011 which could easily be a contender for a wine of a vintage.

Deep, saturated inky purple which at this point show no sign of age. Expressive aromatics of black 🍒, berries of the 🌳 and cassis with smoked vanilla, liquorice, underbrush and bone 🔥and graphite-like mineral. Powerhouse wine, sweet and sour palate delivering a seductive mix of mostly black fruit with minerals, spice seasoned with sweet oak. Superb delivery of the flavour with silky, soft integrated tannins and lots of mineral freshness. One of the changes in winemaking focused on low yields, highly concentrated fruit highly extracted  matured in 100% new oak, on vintages like 2009 all those elements came together extremely well, this wine could easily age 50-60 years.

  • Thank you @jammy_wine for a shearing blind what many consider Burgundy best keep secrets wine which massively overdelivers. The oldest Bourgogne Blanc I ever had guessed as 1985 Burgundy of PC or GC quality. My dear Burgundy, thank you for this lesson in humbleness. 🤣

4.31he planted between 1979-2003.
•
Simply beautiful, melted butter, 🍿 , dry 🍊peel, 🕯 wax, wet hay, freshly baked croissant and butterscotch. Lean, liquid mid- palate which does not have Premier or Grand richness, however is superbly smooth and precise leaving your pallet with delicious buttery/nutty aftertaste. This bottle was stored perfectly In Bond  since EP hence its quality. Spectacular wine, today to drink up if you have any in your cellar😂.🍷

  • This wine was a fantastic surprise of our gathering at The Arches Wine Bar a few weeks back. 🙏 @harrygill1946 for your generosity.
*
Since 2013 managed by Cyprien Arlaud, (picture 2)Domaine Arlaud wines steadily increasing getting better and better. Don’t expect wines which are massive or muscular, they  all about finesse and nuance.
*
Many people felt being caught by surprise, even once like me who worked with this grower wines for a number of years.
*
Light ruby with mahogany reflection, developed aromatics of sour red and blueberries, 💐, fresh 🌿 and iodine and spice. 
Stylish, with a lovely interplay between crunchy fruit, fine tannins supported by refreshing, mineral lead acidity. Invigorating wine of refreshing quality, superbly suave and tasty. 🤤🍷

  • Do you like village wine from Germany?
*
I have to confess, just recently I know how to identify them mostly due to the complexity of the German language. Seems that we got extremely familiar with village Vosne-Romanee or Chambolle-Musigny and clearly one knows what this has to offer being increasingly pricier today at £35-60 a bottle + vat on the secondary market. I like Pinot Noir from Germany more and more as I learn about them, and over the years a significant portion of my cellar delivering big time for a price. Clearly, matter of style rather quality which today easily compare with Burgundy finest.
*
Tasted last week, under screw top. Bright ruby with lovely aromatics which makes your mouth water. Spiced red 🍒, cranberries and blueberries seasoned with cracked red peppercorn, potpourri and flint. Drinking beautifully now, pure, fresh and crunchy with seamless, smooth tannins and plenty of mineral lead freshness. If only all village Pinot taste like that world will be incredibly boring..........😎

  • Tasting with Florence and Daniel Cathiard, owners of @smithhautlafitte for last 28 years is pure delight. In short, 100% of passion in pursuing ultimate quality solely focus on producing Bordeaux finest. We have tasted a number of wines which clearly demonstrate exactly that, refined and complex wines proudly represent Bordeaux. @smithhautlafitte see over 20.000 visitors annually (over 50 a day) being champion of wine tourism. Besides beautiful, medieval @smithhautlafitte there is a great spa and 2 ⭐️ @michelinguide @lessourcesdecaudalie.
*
2016 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 🍍 , 🥭, 🍋 peel, 🌻 oil, dry vanilla, grass, with a spicy and mineral core of freshness being dense, waxy and lasting. Great combination of creamy, weighty texture with purity and lots of vibrancy from Sauvignon Blanc. *
2010 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge
Almost opaque core with deep ruby rim. A pure expression of black 🍒, blackberries and raspberries seasoned with cracked charcoal, crushed 💐 and underbrush. Rich, almost full body with dens and smooth tannins complemented by brisk, deep mineral acidity which accomplishes two tasks, bringing freshness to this athletic wine and second one providing fantastic length. This is exactly why we love 2010. 😋🍒

  • Do you like multi blends of old vintages? New @veuveclicquot , blend of 88/96/06/08/09 and 10 bottled in 2013.
*
Nose reminiscent solera character combined with wet gravel, 🥓 fat, white 💐 , 💨, freshly peeled lime, flint and citrus. Energetic with  mineral intensity and fine creamy mousse.

  • Thank you @undercover_wines for an introduction to Weingut Ziereisen located in Baden region of Germany. Mostly red wines which priced at £42 ex London for their Pinot Noir from 2009 over-delivered massively in comparison with their Burgundian counterparts. There is also “Gutedel 104 Alte Reben ” which comes at premium £120 ex London awarded 💯 by @gaultetmillau. Similarities to Grand Cru Burgundy is unmistakable, possibly the oldest plot of Gutedel whoch today is 80 years old and 104 refer to planting density @ 10.000 vines per hectare.
*
Verbena, toasted brioche, cooking oil , lilac, sliced peach with lemon peel gently braced by steely mineral freshness which is long and deep. Spectacular combination of texture, purity of fruit and crisp mineral freshness building on you with each sniff and sip. It does give massive 🏃‍♂️ for their money to Grand Cru Burgundy. 🤤

  • Drunk over delicious, home cooked food with one of my golden wine friends. Recognised as one of the finest producers of white wine in the world Domaine Ramonet began Domaine bottling back is 1930’s. Established by Pierre Ramonet today run by his two grandsons, Noel and Jean-Claude. There is .26he of Montrachet parcel planted 75 years ago which contributes massively to the quality of those deep and concentrated wines. Very little if any batonnage combined with 50-75%  new oak and prolonged lees ageing makes wines which are dense and silky with fantastic mouthfeel and concentration capable of ageing many years.
*
Reserved character seems to be a fingerprint of 2004, with little time aromas to butter on toast, acacia with wet limestone, citrus oil, brioche, lemon peel and pink grapefruit emerges. Youthful, lean and focus with nervous energy of freshly peeled citrus complemented by electric mineral freshness being tremendously deep and lasting. A masterful marriage of power and finesse, surprisingly this wine manage to hide oak which is noticeable more on the palate than nose adding a fantastic sweet, toasted element to ripens of the fruit and electric minerals. Great to drink today, far from being fully mature and I feel this wine will improve massively over the next 10-20 year. 😋🍷

  • Have you sampled @veuveclicquot La Grande Dame 2008 already? I have last night, seems that 2008 which is merely good does not exist.
*
La Grande Dame 2008
Crushed 🥜 , wet gravel, acacia, lime peel, 🍏 , dry 💐 and 🥓 fat. Lean and structured with a mineral core of depth and precision. Silky mousse which delivers a lot of freshness.
*
La Grande Dame Rose 2008
Sweet and sour red berries with nectarine and wet chalk. Lovely spicy and mineral aftertaste which is deep and lasting lending its self perfectly as an aperitif with canapés or food. 🥂

  • Which Bordeaux Chateau from 2009 delivers the goods for you? From my experience 2009, Chateau Montrose delivers big time considering the price of £1100 per 6/75cl @winesearcher Ex-London. Seems that @nealmartin123 degrade it in 2017 to 98 points from Robert Parker elusive 100 points. At this point, I think you are splitting the hair.
*
Deep, almost opaque core with a youthful fragrance of charcoal, berries of the 🌳 , cassis, 💨, underbrush, sweet vanilla, graphite and violet. Full and muscular, open-knit palate with dense, sweet and sour tannins superbly refreshed by a measured level of acidity bringing perfect level of harmony and length to this extremely enjoyable wine. You can drink it now, or wait for pretty much as long as you like. Fantastic effort.🤤🍷

  • It was a busy, educational and joyous weekend with a number of fascinating wines and the best food in the world. Home cooked 🥘 😋. Lucine Le Moine is a negoce started in 1999 by Mounir and Rotem Souma. In short, exceptional what they manage to achieve entering such a established region as Burgundy. About 40, or so wines produced from top appellation frequently in as tiny quantities as one barrel.
*
Evolve, deep straw colour with fully mature aromas of Asian spice, ripe 🍑, cooked 🍏 caramel, cashews, dry vanilla, acacia and wet stones. Dense and round  palate with plenty of texture and richness marked by viscous, oily texture bizarrely reminiscent mature Chenin Blanc. Considering this is was one of the first vintages this is rather special, knowing their wines from recent vintages they improved drastically.😋🍷

  • How do you feel about paying £100+ for a bottle of Chardonnay from the  so-called “new world”? My view on the matter based on a number of blind tastings (mostly with @penfolds Yattarna, Bell Hill and Cloudburst) is they are easily comparing with Grand Cru Burgundies often being 50% of a price or less. Style moves into reductive as supposed to oxidative and guaranteed of no cork bottle seems to be an exciting addition to the ever challenging wine game.
*
Rich and youthful, expressive aromatics of ripe papaya, 🍊 with freshly pressed grapefruit, toasted 🥜, delicate stroke match reduction along with a mineral aroma of wet graphite. Dense and structured, weighty well harmonise by plenty of mouthwatering purity along with zingy citrus freshness. Hard not to like, extremely well-made wine at the begging of its journey. I hope to taste it again in 3 to 5 or maybe 10 years. Yet to taste really old under  screw top, 15-20 years old.🤤🍷

  • There is a lot to like about 98 vintages of BDX, there is no way they share pedigree of 90, 95 or 96, however, they are extremely drinkable today. Looking at the scoring Robert Parker thought this wine should be at 96pts which @lisapbmw of @wine_advocate increased to 99pts. Well, I like this wine however on this one I am with Robert Parker, even little below at 95pts.
*
Smoke dark 🍒 mixed with turned 🌍, cigar ash, red berries, dry 💐, underbrush and lead ✏️. Structured but round, velvety palate softening up quickly array of fruit and minerals very nicely creating depth and length which is very pleasant but more importantly memorable. Very good wine which drinks well, however another 10-20 years of cellaring should take it to the next level.

  • 🙏 @jammy_wine for sharing 1996 @chateaumargaux with us, extremely generous of you. Seems like 1996 Margaux shy just 1 point from magical 100 by RP(whatever this means). In October 2016 all that changed when @nealmartin123 while @wine_advocate decided to move @chateaumargaux (deservedly in my opinion) to the 100 points. Seem like Margaux have a great 🏃‍♂️ in 1990-2000 decade  with two spectacular efforts, 1990
and in 1996.
*
Enjoyed over a number of dishes @texturerestaurant. Truly memorable, saturated ruby with pure cassis, black 🍒 and raspberries  blended with and 💨, underbrush, black liquorice, graphite and detailed oaky spice. The sublime connection of flavour purity with refreshing, silky, mineral tannins with plenty of vibrant, crunchy acidity. Extremely finessed wine which clearly shows what First Growth are all about. Chapeau @chateaumargaux.

Many people felt being caught by surprise, even once like me who worked with this grower wines for a number of years.

Light ruby with mahogany reflection, developed aromatics of sour red and blueberries, 💐, fresh 🌿 and iodine and spice. 
Stylish, with a lovely interplay between crunchy fruit, fine tannins supported by refreshing, mineral lead acidity. Invigorating wine of refreshing quality, superbly suave and tasty. 🤤🍷
  • This wine was a fantastic surprise of our gathering at The Arches Wine Bar a few weeks back. 🙏 @harrygill1946 for your generosity.

  • Thank you @jammy_wine for a shearing blind what many consider Burgundy best keep secrets wine which massively overdelivers. The oldest Bourgogne Blanc I ever had guessed as 1985 Burgundy of PC or GC quality. My dear Burgundy, thank you for this lesson in humbleness. 🤣

4.31he planted between 1979-2003.

Simply beautiful, melted butter, 🍿 , dry 🍊peel, 🕯 wax, wet hay, freshly baked croissant and butterscotch. Lean, liquid mid- palate which does not have Premier or Grand richness, however is superbly smooth and precise leaving your pallet with delicious buttery/nutty aftertaste. This bottle was stored perfectly In Bond  since EP hence its quality. Spectacular wine, today to drink up if you have any in your cellar😂.🍷

  • А вы бывали когда-нибудь в подвале у винодела? Я вчера была. То есть раньше я бывала в подвалах, где вино продавали. Там просто сложены бутылки и создан антураж. Шоу-рум такой. А вчера нас пригласили туда, где вино зреет. Где деревянные бочки и какие-то железные агрегаты (может, не железные, я не разбираюсь). И нам дали попробовать ещё не созревшее вино.

Раньше я вообще не понимала всей прелести этого напитка. А теперь начинаю разбираться в тонкостях: оттенках вкуса, сочетаемости, сортах винограда, месте и времени производства. И между прочим, это интересно. Интересно говорить с людьми - виноделами в шестом-седьмом поколении. Интересно узнавать от них факты, о которых ты не имел представления. Интересно пробовать, понимая, что вино бывает не просто красным или белым. А имеет тысячи оттенков вкуса.

Конечно, можно купить немецкое вино в супермаркете. Например, в Берлине или Франкфурте. Но оно будет не таким.  Это как купить молоко на ферме у крестьян, свежее, ещё пахнущее травой и утренней прохладой. Или магазинное, вроде бы от того же самого крестьянина, но увезённое на огромный завод, переработанное, расфасованное, транспортированное и ожидающее своего часа на полке супермаркета.

Я хочу сделать винный тур с посещением винодельческих хозяйств, пробами, экскурсиями по виноградникам и винным подвалам. Такие туры традиционно существуют в Италии и Франции. Но немецкие рейнские и мозельские рислинги тоже достойны дегустации и изучения. Между прочим, в прошлом году на конкурсе вин в Бургундии мозельское белое вино получило платиновую медаль от французских виноделов.

А вам был бы интересен такой тур?

  • Lore of the Land opened two weeks ago by @guyritchie with @mikey_seferynski cooking tasty modern British 🥘 which is exciting and well priced. (See pictures 2-5). Oysters, risottos and quail is an absolute must.🤤
*
Domaine de Pelican has been started with 2012 vintage by one of my favourite growers, Marquis d’Angerville known for some of the finest red Burgundies.
*
Local Savagnin grape vinify dry treated to about 20% new oak. Beautiful flinty aromatics with pickled lemon, yellow plum, 💨 and freshly pressed 🍋. Exuberant, unerring palate with fantastic purity and depth makes it superb with food. Drinking well today, I still have a few bottles in my cellar and I will be curious to see how they mature.🍷
