Marks & Spenser Chablis

Aromas are composed of fresh lemon scent.

It is crisp, full of life, tense with a buttery feeling that acts as a natural dampener. Mostly made from lemon, some peach with deep mineral profile. It passes twice, round and round before it settles, after you ingest, it feels like you are drinking it one more time.


William Fevre Chablis Domaine 2015

Made from Chardonnay, with plenty of peach, citrus and green tea leaves in the aroma.

Dry character, with a cocktail made predominately of lemon, some peach that slowly evaporates together with some whipped on top that indulges the cheeks from inside.

Chateau de Sales 2012

I love the intense aroma of tobacco box and ripe dark fruit.

It swirls and evaporates in a blend of dark fruit, spices, toasted oak and a spoon of vanilla. It is tasty, it is joyful. Plenty.


Chateau la Maroutine 2014

Made predominantly from Merlot.

Aroma does not speak to much.

Dry profile with tannins at loose, there is some dark fruit blend and almond resembling image with oak.


Albert Bichot Heritage 1831 Chardonnay

Aromas reveal peach.

It is dry, sprayed with what resembles to white pepper like dust in the air. There is some light peach concentration in the bottom, however this wine have a strong and mineral character with some hints of nuts here and there.

It is a good choice if you want to enjoy it solo.

Bouchard Père et Fils Chardonnay 2015

The aroma is crystallized. It looks like a bench of dried fruit.

Crunchy and dry with butter floating on top. On the underneath layer there is unripe melon blended with peach like it in the blender. Behind the tongue there's a candy thing that I can not figure out. It pushes for our imagination to discover what it is inside of it.


Campo Aldea 2013

Made from Graciano wine variety.

Vanilla and wood in front. The sour cherries are hidden inside the glass.

It has a light profile and I wanted it to be dense, regardless of the grape character, it is more oaky targeted, spicy, a little bit acid, rather than the classic cherries profile. The fact that is becoming aged, suits it well, but it lacks the charm.

Mont Blois Chenin Blanc 2016

Fate dictated that this is the last entry of a South African wine drank in the territory. It were 4 amazing years which I learned to erase some misconceptions about what wine production is all about. As move to other region in the globe, I will start the endless journey of stumbling and learning about other wine regions.

Aroma is compact as a toffee candy.

It shows ripe fruit, spices, melon, peach, apricot and gooseberries, with vibrant acidity, it stings addiction. Pour my glass one more time.

Vieux Châteaux des Combes 2013

Made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Aromas composed of vanilla, fruit cake, raisins and tobacco box.

Soft as silk, focused on dark and ripe fruit with touch of anise, pepper notes and oak touch. Highly enjoyable.


Cistus Grande Reserva 2009

Made from a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional.

Nose with lots of blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, toast and tobacco box.

Impact-full and deep, warm with light spice. It takes me straight to the winter in front of the fireplace. It has more body and structure than some Port wines. Ends endlessly together with ripe fruit, plum, raspberry in sugar cube format. This is a massive wine not to be missed.
