What a start for a year!!!
Updated: Feb 10, 2020
We are sure that everyone is overwhelmed by the spreading of the coronavirus. It is very important to be vigilant with the various hygienic measures. But we also need to exercise common sense and not to make irrational actions, like scrambling to stock up rice and toilet paper, making material shortages a self-fulfilled prophecy.
With the social unrest and then the epidemic, all businesses are suffering. We want to show our support particularly to small independent operators. That’s why when most would prefer to stay put, we went out in the last few days. Through a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or tea with some snacks, we say that we care. And we wish you could do the same.
While you would now stay home most of the time, it doesn’t mean you should give up entirely the enjoyment of life. Spend more time with your family is not bad at all. And perhaps even toast to your loved ones that the family is staying healthy? On that note, let us suggest a few half bottles which would allow you to drink but not overly so:
2015 Bellevue St. Emilion (JS97) at $230/half – Medium bodied Bordeaux from a winery that has improved leaps and bounds since management changes in the late 90’s.
2000 Malsecot St-Exupery (RP95) at $400/half – From one of the under-rated estates in the Margaux region, this is a medium to full bodied wine with great balance and of such value from a great vintage.
2010 Lynch Bages (RP96) at $700/bottle – The ever popular Bordeaux producer strikes again with this one from an excellent vintage.
2015 Pegau CNDP Cuvee Reservee (WA96) at $330/0.5 cl bottle – Full bodied complex wine from Southern Rhone, it offers the flavour of cherry, lavender, hints of tar and black olive, rounding up with a long finish.
2013 Ch. Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (WA96) at $400/bottle – Legendary Napa winery coming up with the winning Chardonnay in the Judgement of Paris in the 70’s...and its red is even better, with this being medium bodied and yet giving intensity and depth!!!
2005 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnennuhr Beerenauslese (WA98) at $850/half – You may want to know that the most expensive white wine in the World is from Germany…sweet Riesling to be precise. Never tried that before? This could give you a flavour of what that is. With an intense smell of honey, nut paste, fruit jelly, citrus oils and a hint of molasses, it has clarity, purity and freshness too.
