Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Champagne 1.5 L

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Champagne 1.5 L

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Champagne Review

10/10 Crisp and clean with just the right hint of fruit.

Tasting Notes
The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle. Brut Carte Jane offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness.

2014 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Review

9/10 – Savory yet very beautiful on the palate, a great buy!

Tasting Notes
Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation. This wine, like other Red Mountain AVA wines before, will develop beautifully for up to 25 or more years with proper cellaring. While a fine wine now with food, should develop well for drinking on its own as it slowly evolves.
