Yesterday’s pleasure 🍾 Mondays are made for Petillant Naturel - I swear ✌🏻
is always a pleasure! Personally, I prefer their Grande Cuvée to the vintages as I see a great work of Chef de cave Eric Lebel behind it.
The ID starts with 312xxx, so, 7yrs on lees, degorged in 2012, composed around 2005 harvest (68% in the blend). Great aroma: nuts, freshly roasted coffee beans, rye bread note (but it's not dominating in this case, so I got misled), caramel, nougat, honey, rich palate with perfectly integrated acidity.
44/37/19 PN/Ch/PM, it’s 161 cuvée if we number it. And how beautifully Krug ages! It is a 5-star champagne regardless the exact note.

QUINTA DO INFANTADO RESERVA DO MARGARIDA TAWNY
Deze Tawny is samengesteld ter ere van Dona Margarida, de grondlegster van deze Quinta. Deze als Reserva gedeclareerde port heeft in de neus geurige hints van gedroogd fruit gecombineerd met hints van karamel. De uitstekende Reserva Tawny heeft 6 jaar op eikenhouten vaten gerijpt en is geproduceerd met uitsluitend druiven uit Gontelho, het hart van de DOC Porto.
Het aroma heeft een overwicht van noten, vooral walnoten, met een lichte zurigheid, wat voor mij een zeer aangename toevoeging is. In de mond heeft deze Tawny karamel, rozijnen en kruiden. Vrij complex, maar wel consistent. Zeer fijne en lange afdronk.
I'm ashamed to say that, relatively speaking, I'm a newcomer to Barolo.
But it's a wine region that is very quickly gaining importance and cellar space in my house.
New tasting note on the blog.
Still can’t get over how good this is | Domaine de la Cote La Cote Pinot Noir 2012
Wine Pairing 2: Domaine Guiberteau, “Clos de Guichaux,” Saumur, 2015...Terrific acidity, spices, yellow apple, chalky minerality
2016 Barons de Rothschild Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon. No. Just no. Acrid, singular note. Over oaked finish. Fruit falls off quickly. Acid seems derived. Light mouthfeel. There are better $8 bottles of Cab out there aren’t there? Figured Chile would be a safe place to find one. Still looking for solid #banquetwine
values for my neighbors to drink. 😂
I think we can all admit that everything is better with a splash of #wine

Mango wine!, before and after filtration!
Ultimate Provence 2017 Urban Provence Rosé (SRP $22): This medium-bodied rosé is composed of 45% Grenache Noir, 35% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, and 5% Rolle—all grown on the producer’s 100-acre estate near the village of La Garde-Freinet in Provence. There are inviting aromas of ripe red berry fruit and white flowers, with flavors of sun-kissed strawberries, stone fruit, rose water, and wild herbs. It is bright and fresh in the mouth with snappy acids and an uplifting fruity finish. As a bonus, you can cut some summer flowers and use the beautifully etched bottle as a vase. #Provence #rosé #CôtesdeProvence #pinkwine #drinkpink #wine #winelover #wineblogger #winewriter #myvinespot
