Top 1998 Right Bank Reds - Twenty Years On They Are Just Warming Up
The Fine Wine Experience Musigny v Chambertin Dinner
Tasted (not blind) side by side these two vineyards had much in common, but there were conclusions it was possible to draw about their differences too. That left me wondering, if we took the two most contrasting Côtes de Nuits villages – Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin, and compared their two greatest vineyards – Musigny and Chambertin, how stark, or how similar might these two vineyards be?
The Fine Wine Experience Richebourg and Romanée-Saint-Vivant Dinner
Put simply Romanée-Saint-Vivant is known for delicacy, femininity, seduction and perfume, while Richebourg is known for power, explosiveness in youth, intensity, and sumptuousness – “an iron fist in a velvet glove”. Both are known for complexity, harmony, suppleness and length. These two vineyards unequivocally deliver at the grand cru level. So, what did these 13 bottles reveal?
"Napa Now and Then" Wine Tasting and Discussion with Author Kelli White
On Saturday, 16 of you joined me in the shop to meet book author, Kelli White, of “Napa Valley Then & Now,” and to taste and discuss wines of the Napa Valley. For this afternoon of tasting, we focused on Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blends.
A transcendental experience - At a once in a lifetime wine dinner, guests tasted some of the best and rarest wines made by the iconic Henri Jayer
Henri Jayer makes the top spot or near top spot on anyone’s list when the subject of the 20th century’s greatest Burgundy vignerons is raised. Now, 11 years since his passing, 16 years since any wine was made bearing his name, and with interest in Burgundy strengthened at pace in Asia, the door is closing on opportunities to taste his life’s work.
A.P. Birks Wendouree Shiraz, and the Slow Rhythm of a Clare Classic
© Linden Wilkie, December 2017. | The shiraz vines at this Clare Valley estate were planted, bushtrained, in 1893, when Alfred Percy Birks established it, and a bit more Shiraz was planted by his son Roly Birks in 1919. He retired in 1970, and after a short wobbly interlude, the estate was sold to Tony and Lita Brady in 1974, who have made every vintage since 1975. Two families, three generations, century-, and century-and-a-quarter old Shiraz vines. That is the background to Wendouree Shiraz.
Linden's Piper-Heidsieck 'Rare' 1976-2007 Dinner Review
© Linden Wilkie, December 2017. | On 11 Dec 2017, we enjoyed five vintages of Piper-Heidsieck’s ‘Rare’ Champagne, their prestige cuvée made in exceptional vintages. What came through tasting these five examples of Rare in one sitting, was the clear sense of style. There is a pure expression of the fruit, refined, neither reductive nor oxidative – very straight, and that emphasis on the fruit gives the wine a joyous feeling, fun to taste, and with enough depth to pair well with food.
Vintage Pairs went high altitude
The 13th edition of our ‘Vintage Pairs’ wine tasting series we went dead posh and fancy over it – all the wines in m-a-g-n-u-m-s, and accompanied by a fine dinner in the private dining room at Michelin-darling Tosca at the Ritz-Carlton.
IN REVIEW: The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium: Domaine Claude Dugat Charmes-Chambertin & Griotte-Chambertin Dinner
My unabashed adoration for the wines of Claude Dugat began in the summer of 2002. I visited the cellars and tasted the 2001s from barrel and they just blew me away. Ever since then tasting a bottle from his domaine has felt like a treat.
IN REVIEW: Château La Mission Haut-Brion Dinner With Jean Philippe Delmas
Tonight’s dinner was a long time in the making. We had acquired a vertical case at Sotheby’s that had been consigned by Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion directly from their cellars.
IN REVIEW: The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium: Domaine Denis Mortet Chambertin Dinner
