When one sees Vosne-Romanee Cros Parantoux, the legendary Henri Jayer usually comes to mind. Indeed, Jayer singlehandedly transformed #CrosParantoux from an obscure wasteland in the 50s to one of the most celebrated (and pricy) terroir today. According to wine-searcher in 2015, the Jayer Cros Parantoux was the 3rd most expensive wine in the world, just behind No. 2 DRC Romanee-Conti and No. 1 Jayer’s Richebourg.
#EmmanuelRouget is Jayer’s nephew, who basically worked alongside the master for years but had separate labels. In 1996 Jayer semi-retired and gave most CP to Rouget and only kept a fraction as a “reserve” label for himself. It’s never clearcut who really did what, and although Rouget is no Jayer, the characteristics of their CP are similar. It was definitely fun to try this Rouget CP 96 a few days ago; definitely a great prelude to a planned Jayer dinner in the near future. 🙏🏼 @christopheraweed for blinding us with this most generous bottle.
Did you know that #women could be put to death for drinking wine in ancient Rome? Or that a long held theory told that women's monthly visitor could turn wine to vinegar? To learn more about women in the wine trade & for great made-by-women wine recommendations, click the link in my bio!
So proud of our friend @oregonkenneth ... he is just 4 weeks away from opening the first #urbanwinery in Gothenburg, Sweden! We got to visit the site of @winemechanics in the last stages of construction this week- Can’t wait to come back and taste 🍷🍷🍷!!!
Do you think the most efficient way to Düsseldorf for @prowein_tradefair is Toronto to London, cancelled transfer, stuck at Heathrow, fly in the opposite direction to Berlin, even longer layover with sightseeing then hopefully transfer to Düsseldorf? #24hoursoftravel
1997 Dalla Valle Vineyards ‘Cabernet Sauvignon ‘ Napa Valley. Decanted 3 hours. This wine was stunning and added to the wonderful evening enjoyed @donnamacyyc I had last tried this wine in July of 2017 , and this particular bottle was showing much better. While the age was visible on appearance the nose and palate demonstrated a mature foundation held together by a youthful vibrancy. Clear and Garnet in colour with very good intensity. The nose was layered with stewed black fruits including blackberries and dark plums. Black liquorice, both of the sweet and salty variety, paired lovely chocolate and pipe tobacco. Much to my delight, I found my zesty Doritos note that I love discovering in my aged Napa Cabs. Soft vegetal undertones but this was still a very fruit forward nose. The palate had med acid and, after the decant, the tannins relaxed and allowed for an integrated and smooth mouthfeel; however some pleasant gripping held you caprice. Here the dark fruits exhibited a brighter note over the stewed note Ln the nose. Black berries and black currant with cassis. Chocolate endorsed the palate and smoothed out the finish to provide and long lasting blend of fruit, herbs and sweetness. This bottle was outstanding and such an improvement on my last experience. #wine#fridaynight#vin#wein#vino#winetime#wineoclock#winelover#winelovers#winecountry#winestagram#instawine#somm#luxury#wineporn#winery#instalike#foodandwine#winenight#usa#napa#redwine#foodie#wineanddine#winetasting#california#vinho#winelife#instagood#napavalley
