Ya’ll I am obsessed with my @coravin
🍷Every wine enthusiast should have one at home. You can have a glass (or two) without ever pulling the cork! It is seriously magical and can preserve your wine for YEARS.
Monday blues got me thinking about all these cool wine gifts we got for the holidays, and the cold winter season is a great time to start using them! ❄️ Like many others, we got the @coravin
which as an engineer, I can’t wait to try out and kinda peeved I didn’t think of this myself! Thanks to my brother-in-law @ohhtimo23
for this gem! Next is a small batch wine kit and some geeky wine science books from my partner in engineering crime, @saschaabramson
. 👩🏼🔬🔬🧪I can’t wait to make some Merlot and educate myself on something about wine besides drinking it! Finally, my coworker got us a wine journal 📔 . She was like, you probably have this already but guess what? We don’t! I’m stoked to start journaling about the wines we try! What are some of the coolest wine gifts you’ve received or given? 🎁 My bday is in a few weeks so I need ideas! 😂🎂🍷#wine #winegifts #oenophile #winemaking #coravin #winebooks #winejournal
A great morning early morning tasting through 30+ wines with sommelier @russberry_
. We picked up some super tasty new treats for next wine list update. 🤩🍷

La fin des bouteilles du week-end avec ce Vallée du Rhône « la Remise » 2016, du Domaine Gallety. Une cuvée spéciale dont ce domaine a le secret, à majorité de Syrah, portée sur le fruit, sur la finesse et une belle construction aromatique.
Déjà le blanc de ce domaine m’avait impressionné. Là c’est du plaisir à chaque gorgée pour un vin jeune et qui pourra être oublié longtemps en cave.
Au final, cette jeune AOP Côtes du Vivarais, en Ardèche, ne laisse pas indifférent. Un terroir unique qui permet aux vignes de Syrah de s’épanouir pleinement au soleil et à celles de Grenache de s’épanouir pour donner des futurs grands vins.
Connaissez vous cette appellation ?
The end of the weekend bottles with this Rhône Valley "la Remise" 2016, from Domaine Gallety. A special cuvée of which this winemaker has the secret, with a majority of Syrah, focused on fruit, finesse and a beautiful aromatic structure.
Already the white of this domain had impressed me. Here it is a pleasure for each sip for a young wine that can be forgotten for a long time in the cellar.
In the end, this young Côtes du Vivarais PDO in Ardèche does not leave anyone indifferent. A unique terroir that allows the Syrah vines to blossom fully in the sun and the Grenache vines to blossom to produce future great wines.
Do you know this name?

And now for the little brother! 🍷🍇👌🏻 What an amazing wine this is as well, in my opinion easily rivalling the Chevalier-Montrachet in character and depth. Notes of blue cheese and honey were staggeringly clear on opening, but got increasingly complex as it developed, getting more layered notes of white roses and lots that my feeble palate can’t cope with. What a pleasure this was!

One of the warmest and nicest visits I have had in a long time. Looking back at our Bordeaux trip in December, I realized it is not only about the wine but it is about the people and places where they are made. ——————————————————
Blend: 83% CS, 15% Merlot and 2% CF
Aging: 60% new Oak
Nevertheless, this page is about reviewing and discovering new wines 📝 The 2014 is still very closed. However, you can feel it’s potential. It will be stunning in 3-5 years time 📸 #AlpineCellar
🌎 The world of wine may be bigger than ever but there are some amazing tools of the trade to help with the age old problem of-once a bottle is open, that’s it. 🛠There are a few tools/technologies out there that preserve a wine once open (enomatic machines, wine save etc.) but nothing compares to Coravin. 👨🏼🔬Greg Lambert inventor of this ‘wine mosquito’ (best name 😂) used his medical back ground to create this ingenious tool.
It allows you to take wine out of a bottle without opening it (through the cork using a needle), and helps elongate the working life of a wine under screw cap. 🌼This vermentino here has been ‘open’ for 6 weeks and is fresh as a daisy. Pala makes delish Vermentino’s from the island of Sardinia 🍊🍋🍑🥭
‼️Two absolute must do tricks for using Coravin:
1. ALWAYS ‘prime’ the needle
2. Keep wines under screw cap on their side (maintains the seal)

Le week-end continue avec ce Côtes du Rhône 2014, château des Tours de Emmanuel Reynaud.
C’est tellement complexe en bouche, surtout quand on oublie de l’ouvrir suffisamment à l’avance, qu’il me tarde ce soir pour terminer la bouteille.
Si j’avais utilisé mon #coravin
pour le tester, ça m’aurait peut être mis la puce à l’oreille, cela dit, ce vin vinifié par le pape du Chateauneuf est une merveille.
Les fromages qui l’accompagneront ce soir, seront vraiment gâtés, et moi aussi 😉
The weekend continues with this Côtes du Rhône 2014, Emmanuel Reynaud’s Château des Tours.
It's so complex on the palate, especially when you forget to open it early enough, that I'm looking forward to finishing the bottle tonight.
If I had used my #coravinsystem
to test it, it might have tipped me off, but this wine made by the Pope of Chateauneuf is a marvel.
The cheeses that will accompany it tonight will be really spoiled, and so will I. 😉

Chateau d’Issan is one of the oldest wine producing properties in the Medoc, claiming fame also to being one of the oldest estates in all of Bordeaux that has continually produced wine in the area. D’issan’s 120 hectare grounds remains most picturesque of the Medoc estates. With its moats, drawbridge and courtyard, It all looks like a beautiful castle out of a fairy tale
1998 was the turning point for steady improvements In quality with the appointment of Emmanuel Cruse. He modernized the estate’s facilities and procedures. Most importantly was that greater selection is now utilized when selecting the fruit that will make it into the Gran Vin. The selection here is so severe, that today, it’s common for close to 40% of the yields to be declassified into the second wine
44 hectare is currently planted to vine with around 60% to Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% to Merlot. These vines sit on a terroir of gravel with clay and limestone soils on gentle, rolling, slopes. These vines on average are around 35 years of age
the wine is vinified in numerous temperature controlled, stainless steel vats. This allows for true parcel by parcel vinification. Malolactic fermentation is conducted in a combination of tank and barrel. The amount of each method varies, depending on the vintage and grape variety as only the Merlot goes through malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine is aged in 50% new, French oak barrels for an average of 18 months before bottling
Onto the 2010 we are taking the first look at since purchase. An essential 2hour decant reveals an inviting densely fruited perfume. Sweet blackberries, black currant, plum and dark cherries with bay leaf, earth and iodine scents that drift bellow. There is a lot of character to this wine! The palate is bold whilst remaining refined, elegant and fresh. Even the tannin structure is sublimely polished. Flavours first run a huge dark fruit focus shifting to an intense spicy, cocoa, violet, blackberry and ripe plum filled finish. Primary today, but so approachable. With more time it will certainly fully blossom. I look forward to becoming comfortably acquainted with this wine in the coming decades.
Wine wanker status reached a new level tonight. @mashkin27
and I absolutely love our new gift. The #coravin
is such a great invention. Being able to have different glasses of wine from various bottles without needing to open them is a genius idea. #technology #winegadgets #redwine

Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru Les Pucelles 2014 from Olivier Leflaive.
If you are not focused on a specific wine area or wine type, it’s kind of hard to have tasted everything the wine world has to offer today (and of course you are not a wine critic or a full blast somm...).
All this to say that I have little experience with the wines of Olivier and had more occasions to try those of feu Anne-Claude...which is a bit odd as they cost roughly the double...
I was quite happy to snap the last case of this at a vendor that was proposing it at about 90 euro/bottle which I thought was a good price for such a bottle in 2014, that is supposedly great for white burgs.
Well, in a nutshell, it’s damn delicious and I was so glad to find that razor sharp acidity that I like so much with Chardonnay. I’ve always preferred Puligny over Meursault for that even if the spectrum can be quite large.
This guy (or should I say gal as it’s a Pucelle..😬) is just a mouth and brain pleaser: so fresh, so mineral, the persistance is amazing. To nose is so clean, and elegant, appealing but not vulgar, it reminds almost a young high end champagne with some brioche besides the citrussy side, a tad of oak sweetness. The palate is not rewarding if you like your chard fat and large. Here we talk about tartness, elegance almost evanescence. It really light bodied but so intense, so sharp.
You got it by now, I am wowed by this wine and am so happy I’m finally tasting this Oliver Leflaive wines.
The only thing that I didn’t like is the ad for his hotel and restaurant on the back label...come on!!!!!!!!
I had a Pucelles 2006 from Anne-Claude not so long ago, and my vote would go to this one, even if the vintage goes in favor to Oliver.
And finally, absolutely no hint whatsoever of premox, which always puts a smile on my face with white burgs... 🤩🤩🤩
