December it is!
Fantastic wine for fantastic people on a fantastic night.
Evening started with young and sweetly scented Albert Bichot Les Malconsorts Vosne Romanee 1er Cru 2014 which was followed by Gaja Barbaresco 1999. It was all about perfume, complexity and elegance. Dried fruit, plum jam, dried roses, sweet tobacco and leather is wonderfully balanced with silky tannins and ripe acidity. All wines showed some bottle variance and all three corks broke, despite my efforts both with trusty Laguiole or ah so. Nonetheless all of them were wonderful.
Finally things were wrapped up by the always vigorous and energetic Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac 2012.
And of course to end things right Graham's Single Harvest Tawny Port 1982 The Bomb (which sadly didn't get into picture) made the show. Everyone seemed to have left extremely happy. Mission complete!

It's local's day @quartzreefwines and our lucky one to be exploring wineries around Cromwell with a dear friend who is a local. In fact, the stars must've been perfectly aligned with this #biodynamic winery's generosity and the wizardry of #winemaker Rudi Bauer as we find ourselves listening intently to the gurgling song of #fermenting Pinot Noir, while Rudi gives us a taste of of his hilariously dry Austrian humour, along with tastes from different batches of the fermenting wine, in an intense session that explores the wine expressing itself and its terroir at various stages of its life-cycle. Considered a pioneer of the Central Otago Bendigo region, Rudi likes the convergence of the old and the new while creating his masterpieces in the fully certified organic and biodynamic Quartz Reef winery with the Bendigo Estate Single Ferment Pinot Noir 2016 winning a Gold Medal at the 2018 Six Nations Wine Challenge🍷🍷

Holiday Gift Solution #3 For “Les Shoppers”! Husbands, send your wives. Moms bring your daughters. Girlfriends come together! (Men welcome too!) Paris (is)on Sale! – only Four Rooms Left in our luxury Parisian Mansion! Book by December 16 in time for Christmas and receive $250 off each Adventurer!
Sunday, June 30 – Saturday, July 6, 2019 “By law clearance sales are state-regulated in France and generally run during two periods of the year: once in summer, just before the massive exodus toward the sea and sun, and once in the winter, shortly following Christmas. Department stores, boutiques, designer outlets, and even hardware shops clear out items from the previous season, gradually slashing prices over the course of the sales period. So you can imagine the anticipation when the sales time comes around! What is the word to look for? SOLDES!” http://clone.artisticgourmetadventures.com/2019-paris-on-sale/

Büyük şarap insanlarının ortak özelliği, şaşkınlık uyandıracak denli alçakgönüllü olmaları. Sindirilmiş bir kültür birikiminin etkisiyle, bu insanlarda asla ukalâlık göremezsiniz. “dir”, “dır” gibi kesinlik içeren bir kiple konuşmazlar, sık sık “bence…”, “sanırım…”, “galiba” kelimelerini kullanırlar. 2009’da dünyanın en büyük şarap buluşması olan Bordo’daki Vinexpo’da düzenlediğimiz Türk şarapları tadımının açılışını yapan Bourguignon çifti de böyle insanlar. İkisi de biyolog ve önolog olan Claude ve Lydia Bourguignon, aralarında Romanée-Conti’nin de olduğu dünyanın en değerli bağlarından bir bölümünün danışmanı, pek çok şarabın gizli kahramanı. Kapadokya bölgemize de hayran olan Bourguignon’lar günümüz şarap dünyasının en saygın insanları arasındalar.
Aramızdaki şarabı başkalarına üstünlük taslama aracı olarak gören kişiler Bourguignon’ları tanısalar, şarapla ilgili tepeden bakışlı, sert ve kıyıcı ifadeler kullanmaktan, “Herkes şarap öğrenemez” gibi cümleler sarfetmekten eminim utanırlar, tarzlarını gözden geçirme ihtiyacı duyarlar.
Ya da… Galiba duymazlar!
