There’s still a lot left of this sweet #summertime , but we do love seeing the gentle reminders that #fall is right around the corner! 🍁
Let’s kick this Sunday off with #WineBodyandSoul yoga at 11am to reset our minds and bodies. Then join us in the tasting room from 12-5pm, where we’re pairing the wine with music by the talented @markandjillsingtheblues
Domaine Catherine & Pierre Breton | Grolleau ‘Vin de Pays du Val de Loire’ 2018 | Loire Valley, France.
60 year old vines grown in clay and limestone. Carbonic maceration for 3 weeks in an open-top wood vat - no pumpovers or punchdowns. Its alcoholic lightness allows it to retain sweet cherry, wild strawberry, and crunchy cranberry aromas. 🍒🍓🇫🇷
I feel the sky within my reach...And everything else is so beautiful, so overwhelming, so special, whose intensity cannot be explained... but just drinking it, savoring those little details that warms up our heart. 🥂. 🎧Morcheeba🎶”Blindfold”🎧🥂

1978 may not have been the easiest of season in Bordeaux, still some Château produced beautiful wines.
Léoville Las Cases has always been one of my favorite from 1978 and I was looking forward to opening my last bottle.
Upon inserting the Durand, I got a little anxious, as there was not much resistance and I could easily push down the cork.
After taking the first nose, there was this strong smell of wet damp cellar, which suggested cork. Not giving up I decanted the bottle.
After taking the first sip it was clear that this was a faulty bottle.
Well, another bottle down the drain. At least I was able to taste a perfect bottle generously shared by @sharadnoctilux earlier this year. Onto the next!
Here where it all began #enolovers 😍🍾
Where the work of men and nature meets to give life to the fruit🍇 that we love the most. 🍷
Specifically, I was in champagne among the infinite vineyards of our 🇫🇷 French cousins, from which, on the bubbles, we have a lot to learn.
Their sparkling history is much more dated than ours, but from some tastings I trust and know that even in our nation excellent bubbles can be produced🤘🏻
So guys today, I ask you what is your sparkling wine of the heart?🍾❤️ #enoblogger #champagne #vineyards #louisroederer

As wines age, density of color decreases and the rim variation becomes greater showing more orange (sometimes brown) colors. The rate at which a wine changes to look this way depends on the variety of wine, producer and region. ⠀
Generally, fine wines take longer (at the most 10-12 years) to begin to take on old wine characteristics as shown. However sensitive varietals such as merlot, zinfandel and pinot noir can change faster. ⠀
After four years in a bottle I observed an organic zinfandel from Arizona that was orange-rimmed and looked like an old wine. Wines also take longer to age in larger bottles because of the ratio of wine to air in the bottle.

The 2016 vintage of #DonMelchor is marked by elegance, finesse, and tremendous aromatic expression. Shall we open one?
The Champagne production zone (AOC vineyard area) is defined and delimited by a law passed in 1927, encompassing roughly 34,300 hectares of vineyards🇫🇷🍇
