Aromatic and very masculine and muscular interpretation of Les Amoureuses from Vogue. Dark cherries, black pepper, pomegranate and a dark berry syrup with a spicy twist. Feels like this is a wine that would last forever, not even close to the plateau. Hide away if you have a stack of this ‘02.

My face this week when I UNWITTINGLY had to pay for the most expensive wine by the glass I have ever encountered. Read on if you want a perfect example of being a bad Sommelier and a major rookie error on my part... My friend and I were in a v well established wine bar in BEverly Hills and as he is a winemaker I gave him the wine list. I NEVER usually do this FYI! He really wanted a glass of white burgundy ( admittedly never cheap) and so asked for two glasses . The Somm went away and came back and said they didn’t have it. My friend chose two other Burgundy options - the Somm went away and came back with a negative.
The Somm at this point had taken away the wine list from us but suggested a white burgundy which they did have by the glass. My friend and I trusted him and agreed.
Disclaimer : we should have asked him how much it was but we figured he would know our budget from what we were asking for.
It therefore was a COMPLETE SHOCK to find for my perfectly average glass i had to pay $80!!!!
Nuts!!! 3 lessons here:
I should always see the wine list and I should have asked the Sommelier how much it was.
2. Sommeliers are meant to represent hospitality. He should have made it very clear to his customers how much they would be spending - especially at that amount! This lack of transparency really made my friend and I feel taken advantage of and it definitely doesn’t make me trust the philosophy behind the establishment. I will hesitate before returning to this wine bar / restaurant.
I should have said something but instead I was too British - gave a weak smile - tried to suppress the tears inside and said thank you. Urgh!!!!! Less apologizing and more backing myself this year - Amelia get it together!
Anyway just wanted to share this with you so that you can avoid making my painful errors and also so you know that even wine professionals are not immune to the pitfalls of dodgy service.
Repurpose, repurpose, repurpose! That’s my best advice! Use those pretty bouquets as extra decor somewhere in your reception space. I hate seeing bouquets go to waste and not used after ceremonies. We have a lot of brides set them on head tables or on additional reception tables throughout the room. There’s so much you can do. ✨
...and she’s in the shop! Our newest suite was inspired by a recent bride with a vision of a monochrome palette and very clean fonts. We couldn’t help but picture something similar using #dustyblue#paleblush and #burgundy papers!
We are delighted to be offering the wines of Domaine Jean Collet et Fils @chablis.collet once again this year as part of our Burgundy 2018 En Primeur Offer. Full details in our bio. Located in the village of Chablis itself, the domaine has existed since 1952 but the family have been making wine since 1792. The founder, Jean, was joined at the domaine by his son Gilles in the late 1970s. Gilles’s own son, Romain, now represents the fourth generation of the family in Chablis. Romain studied winemaking in Beaune and like many of his generation, worked abroad, including in New Zealand, before returning to the mother land in 2009. The Domaine comprises 37 hectares of vines with parcels in Grand Cru Valmur, 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre, 1er cru Mont de Milieu, 1er cru Montmains, 1er Cru Vaillons, Chablis “Les Truffières”, Chablis and Petit Chablis. The family tend their vines according to the “Lutte Raisonnée” principles which limit the usage of chemical treatments to the absolute minimum necessary. Here @ow_loeb we are big fans of Romain who, on top of producing some of our favourite Chablis, truly knows how to look after his guests at the winery! We always keep visits to see him until the end of the day when in the area and have a bottle of his wine in the fridge here in the office to enjoy after a hard day’s work. We think you should do the same!
Tonight we attended @philipsonwine’s Burgundy tasting in Aarhus and here you find a few of tonights highlights - especially the Charmes-Chambertin was amazing!
The tasting encompassed 60+ Burgundy wines including several Grand and Premier Crus and don’t you ever miss out on this tasting if hosted again!
45$ is an absolute bargain for a tasting like this and transferred to our wine for money scale this is easily a 10/10🔥🌪🔥🌪
Lovery Gevrey-Chambertin 2011 from Domaine Armand Rousseau.
A great wine maker made a tasty wine even in 2011.
* Score : 92 Point
* Drink : Now ~ 2035+
* Comment : Highly recommended
* Vineyard information
Domaine Rousseau owns 10 vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin, 8 of which are used in its Village appellation : Les Crais, Creux Brouillard, Clos Prieur Bas, En Champs, Les Cercueils.
Plus Champs Chenys and Reniards, both of which are tenanted.
Each year, the domain also relegates grapes from Premiers crus : Perrières, Les Etournelles, Les Craipillots.
* Winery information
Domaine Armand Rousseau ranks with Romanée-Conti, Leroy, Roumier, and a small handful of names that are the stuff of Burgundy legend. These domaines produce impeccable quality wines from vintage to vintage, and consistently place Burgundy at the top of the wine world.
Each of the domaine’s prestigious holdings are in Gevrey Chambertin, with the exception of Grand Cru Clos de la Roche in Morey-St. Denis. The domaine controls a remarkable 8 hectares of Grand Crus, including 6.25 acres in Chambertin and 3.45 in Clos de Bèze. Rousseau owns 5.5 acres in the famed Premier Cru Clos St. Jacques, which accounts for 40% of the total acreage, and 100% of the 2.5-acre monopole, Grand Cru Clos des Ruchottes.
Eric Rousseau is adamant that yields should be severely limited to promote faithful expression of the individual vineyard. The wines age in barrel for 18 months before bottling. Rousseau releases its wines exactly two years after the vintage.
