NV Pierre Péters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Perle du Mesnil

Tasting Note

The third bubble of our Champagne Cantonese Seafood Spectacular and Wine of the Night (WOTN).  Served in big bowl Chardonnay glasses to allow the nose to flourish.

Pale gold eye with a touch of green.  Luvly bubbles. Nose of both flowers and a blend of citrus fruit.  Great toasted almonds with dramatic freshness.

Lemon, lime and everything fine on the palate and a finish that never finishes. Excellent and very good QPR.

Tasting Note

The second bubble of our Champagne Cantonese Seafood Spectacular.  Served in big bowl Chardonnay glasses to allow the nose to flourish.

Golden yellow.  Pearls dissipate but remain on the eye.

Vibrant nose of ripe, dry fruit with a touch of toasted almonds.

Honey and burnt caramel on the palate. Refreshing and fairly long finish. Good QPR.

NV Vouette et Sorbée Champagne Fidèle

Tasting Note

The first bubble of our Champagne Cantonese Seafood Spectacular was dry as a baby’s bottom and Served in big bowl Chardonnay glasses to allow the nose to flourish.

Luvly, light purple on the eye.  Nose so perfectly Pinot Noir that we almost forgot it was champagne.

Wow!

Palate of vibrant, berry berries with a long, elegant finish. Just a very good wine! Good QPR.

2012 Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc

TASTING NOTE

Wow, what a great wine!!!

Vivacious yellow with hints of green.  Opens with floral notes that transitions to a powerful blend of citrus fruits on the nose.  More than ready to sip now, but will likely develop into a different wine on the nose in the coming years.

The palate demonstrates the fantabulous vibrant balance we always find with SHL.  One of our favourite white Bordeaux and a significantly good reason for the existence of Sauvignon Blanc 😉

Our last bottle sipped for first day of “birthday month” celebrations. Just a nice,  unpretentious drop.  A definite “buy” every year.

2012 Gaja Langhe Chardonnay Gaia & Rey

TASTING NOTE

Wow, wow, wow!!! Although many, many years to go before fully blossoming, this luvly baby (barely legal) was outstanding!

Light, straw yellow.  We see a much darker yellow in her future.

Bouquet of toasty oak, roasted almonds, vanilla and vibrant blend of citrus.  Currently a touch sharp on the nose, she mellowed out after an hour of breathing.  Never mind, we look forward to enjoying the evolution of this beautiful track star!  Beyonce-like body with racy, ripe fruit, flamboyant acidity and a long, lingering finish.  When she becomes the mature lady we expect by 2020, we will simply fall in love.

Burgundy? Napa? Hmm…Gaia & Rey steps up, challenges and clearly competes at the top!

2010 Château Eugenie Cahors Cuvée Reservee De l’Aieul

TASTING NOTE

Our artsy-fartsy friend went crazy with the dark purple ink attack on the eye. Fun!!!

Aromatic blend of blackberries and blueberries, some vanilla-cream and warmth.

Powerful dark fruits with firm structure and huge tannins.

Extraordinary QPR.
