Seared yellowfin tuna and Pinot Gris - not a bad way to start the week!
Tasting Notes: Elegant "picota" (cherry) red color and ruby tonalities. Sensual, deep and complex aroma where rich vanilla and toasted aromas point out as a consequence of an aging in French oak, with predominant touches of ripened red fruits. Balanced, warm, and gourmand palate.
LAST CHANCE to help us hand harvest our Pinot Noir. We’re close to selling out of our tickets for the Hands-on Harvest Experience on Friday. Get yours now. Link in bio.

Another awesome find restaurant in a great location with fab food & very unique wines 😍 - La Gavina (⏩ scroll for pics & see more below) We tried a new wine region to us - Navarra 😁 Have you had wines from here ? 🇪🇸 The Chardonnay is like Chablis meets Sauv blanc - as Mrs E calls it “Hawaiian Chablis” Was €97 in restaurant & retails €50 👍
📍 Chivite Colección 125 Blanco 2016 Chardonnay
🏵 94 points
🍇 100% Chardonnay but I’d have guessed some Viognier & Sauv Blanc in it due to its complexity
🍷 Straw golden yellow
👃 Tropical buttery banana driven green apple, citrus & apricot w/ white flowers, rock minerals, hint of oak & a mango + guava kick
👄 Refreshing med creamy buttery body of tropical fruits, citrus & green apple in dry chalky minerals
🎯 Long slight dry mouth filling tropical & citrus refresher w/ a poke of green apple & lime
🥘 We loved the free White asparagus cream on Canapé, Goats cheese w/ ham & pine nuts, Tuna carpaccio, Grilled monkfish w/ creamy mash & spinach, Blackened seafood paella, Creme Catalan & Lemon sorbet - all that food for 2 with Coffees ☕️ & breads with oil/balsamic was €100 boom 💥 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
‘Flip You For It’ is back again tonight! AKA: ‘Deals so good they’ll have you dancing like Dusty’. Incase you missed the drill last week: You pick any bottle of wine off our list. We break out Chef Hall’s prized wrestling-themed poker chips. You chose the side. We flip the chip for the wine. If you win, the wine is $1. If we win, the wine is the regular menu price. Who is your lucky wrestler?
Albert Bichot Pouilly-Fuissé 2017
Pouilly-Fuissé, France 100% Chardonnay
Pouilly-Fuissés like Albert Bichot Pouilly-Fuissé are nearly as complex as their Côte d'Or village counterparts at a fraction of the price. We think this is exciting! This wine features a beautiful pale yellow color with golden highlights. It has a lively, aromatic nose with predominant notes of white fruit and spices underpinned by a subtle touch of oak and vanilla. Finally, this wine has mineral on the palate with a good balance between acidity and roundness and wonderful length.
The Bichot Family knows what they’re doing. They have been established in Burgundy since 1350, though their history in the wine business dates back to the 19th century when Bernard Bichot founded the wine brokerage in 1831. Albéric Bichot now represents the sixth generation to run the family business.
Albert Bichot Pouilly-Fuissé is a good match for fish, seafood, and white meats in sauce. It’s rated 90 Points by Wine Spectator Magazine which describes it as follows: “Peach, anise, floral and lemon aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this creamy white. Firmly structured and moderately long, with a sense of elegance and refinement. Drink now through 2023.” We are offering this complex white Burgundy for a super value price — $29.99. Come on in and get some.
Before you judge me... wait! This bottle was left over from the weekend. I think I need to save some wine more often. Mondays aren’t so bad after all 🤣🤣🤣
A little about the bottle:
OK, so it’s a Californian Chardonnay and I unashamedly admit to loving these wines! Californian Chards can have a bit of a rep can’t they for being vanilla bombs 🍦💣 and of course these wines do exist but there are plenty of great and very well made wines out there too. This Bogle is a great example. 50% matured in in American Oak (there’s your vanilla and almond) and 50% stored in stainless steel to preserve the primary fruit flavours (peach and citrus). Just delicious! A guilty pleasure or not... 🤷🏼♂️
This is my #MondayMotivation ! Thanks to the rain, my commute was 2 hours and I am exhausted to say the least! But I can look forward to opening a bottle of @sterlingvineyards Sauvignon Blanc! What are you all drinking tonight to combat the Monday blues? 🍷
Spectacular Corton-Charlemagne 1999 from Domaine Coche Dury.
Still youthful and fresh. This delivers the classic 1999 combination of textural depth/richness and beautiful acidity..
* Score : 97 Point
* Drink : Now~2045 +
* Comment : Collectable
* Surface : 0.33ha in ownership
* Age of vines : Planted in 1960
* Soil : Clay, Limestone
* Winery information
The domaine was established in the 1920s by Leon Coche. Some vineyard plots with established grapevines were purchased and Léon bottled some wine himself as well as selling grapes to local negociants to bottle.
The vineyard land was passed down to Leon's three children, with Georges Coche taking control of his share in 1964 and continuing to run the estate and purchase new vineyard land.
Jean-Francois Coche took over from his father Georges, on his fathers retirement in 1973. Jean-François's wife has the surname Dury which was added to the name of the estate.
In July 1998, Coche-Dury suffered damage to ten rows of its vines in Grand cru vineyard Corton-Charlemagne, after a helicopter spraying a neighboring parcel crashed.
In 1999 Jean-Francois was joined full-time by his son Raphael Coche after Raphael finished studying viticulture and oenology. Raphael took over the winemaking role at the estate in 2010 with his fathers retirement
* Wine making
All wines are raised in barrel and aged for 15 to 22 months, depending on the vintage and wine.
All wines bottled unfiltered ; reds are fined with egg whites.
Reds are fully de-stemmed and the Coches favor a “vinification douce” or soft vinification for their Pinot Noir
파워와 우아함 거기에 purity와 완벽한 밸런스까지..
더이상 바랄게 없는 와인이다.
Do you drink Malbec? 75% of the world’s Malbec comes from Argentina, which is why I was surprised to find this one from Sonoma by @carruthcellars 🍇 Bold, rich, and smooth... just how I like them!
108 97615 September, 2019
When you and your best friend/roommate come home from work wearing the exact same outfit on accident you are obligated to take a photo (preferably including some wine!) This wine from @carruthcellars is a rose of Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Oregon. If you haven't had a chance to experience wines from this region, I recommend you do so immediately.

Conoscere il vino vuol dire cultura, vuol dire territorio, vuol dire storia di famiglia, vuol dire rispetto di un prodotto. È bellissimo essere qui oggi, tra cantine celebri e piccolissime realtà, perché l’amore per la propria terra è lo stesso ed è un piacere aiutarvi a comunicarlo nel migliore dei modi. @franciacorta #franciacorta #festivalfranciacorta #ad #neverstopexploring
