Always worth a shot 📷 @domperignonofficial 🥂🍾 The seductive 2009 Dom Pérignon has become a firm favourite with the Goedhuis team. Marked out by its open expression and its fresh mineral nose of oyster shell and smoky gun flint. The palate is exquisite, with profound depth of flavour and a vibrant saline finish. Its power, aromatic persistence, and silky texture are simply irresistible. 🙌 #domperignon #2009vintage #finebubbles #champagne

@lariojaaltasa is one of the most important wineries in #Spain, and it is also located in #BarrioDeLaEstacion (Train-Station’s Neighborhood) in #Haro, #DOCaRioja, since 1890 (what gives name to their #GranReserva890), and was in 1904 that #RiojaAlta and #BodegasArdanza merged, and from there is where we get the name of their #GranReserva904.
After a visit around the old #Winery and the storage facilities where the bottles rest before being released, we tasted the #2009Vintage of the two #Reserva: #ViñaArana (#Tempranillo + #Mazuelo) and #ViñaArdanza (Tempranillo + #Garnacha). The first one had a ripe and fruit driven expression with some tertiary notes, while the second showed structured, fresher and spiced. Both soft and round.
Then, we tasted the 2009 Gran Reserva 904, and finished with the #Vintage1997 of the Gran Reserva 904. Both are a blend of 90% Tempranillo and the rest of #Graciano. The #2009 still shows a lot of youth with its intense ripe clean fruit, while the evolution of the #1997 is shown through a gamey, black tea and dry roses-like expression. A very special #Wine every vintage it is released.
Gracias Askoa, you Rock!

お気に入り白ワインの一つ、フランスのボルドー地方で作られているジロラット。
色味は濃い黄色、果実感とうまみが強いですが、しっかりとしたオークの風味もあり非常に深い味わいのする一本。

Pulled one out of the cellar.. tough vintage for just 1 barrel.. I remember taking care of not wasting 1 drop! Unfortunately Cherry Camp Syrah will no longer be, as the owner budded over to another varietal.. 🙄.. luckily I’ve got a nice stash still.. 🍷

This was a delicious way to start the weekend :) Winery: Château Cos Labory
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Region: Saint-Estèphe
Tasting Notes: “Full of red and black fruits, dark cherry, black plum, fragrant fresh boysenberries, dark Belgium chocolate, ground spice and mineral notes. This has a balanced refined silky texture and distinct Bordeaux like fruit structure that meets fine grained tannins and well-integrated oak.” #chateaucoslabory #stestephe #leftbankbordeaux #bordeaux #2009vintage #cabernetsauvignon #cabernetfranc #merlot #coslabory #winelover #vino #vivino #wine #winenight “The Greatest Harvest in the History of Saint-Estèphe and the Fact that Cos Labory is One Step from renowned Château Cos d'Estournel!

Didn’t know much about this wine, but needed something to celebrate the birth of our newest follower! Stopped by Paul’s since it was right by the hospital and picked up this bottle on recommendation of the manager from their back room, not on shelfs. You might notice the similarities in label, but a Mendoza effort from the French family that owns and operates Chateau Leoville Poyferre. A blend of 70% Malbec, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 5% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot.

Enticing nose of sweet fruit that previews a simple fruit bomb. However, the palate really tells a different story. Definitely fruit forward with beautiful ripe red fruit, but nicely balanced with the more savory elements of tobacco, earth, and finishing with stone and minerals. I believe this is still on the upswing with tannins that pull everything together remaining and should likely be drunk between now and 2021. Really a fine effort.

So my husband is really into French wines these days, especially Bordeaux. He keeps bringing home wine to try and I’m happy to be the one he shares with! I don’t speak French but I know a good wine when I try one! This Mouton Rothschild was liquid gold 😋Definitely one of the best Bordeaux wines I’ve ever had 😍

The star of the show: Roxanich 2010 Milva. 100% Chardonnay from Istria, Croatia. Macerated 7 days on skins and then 6 years maturation in old wood barrels. Still beautifully fresh and complex, with dried peach and mandarin, pie crust, sweet cream, and toasted nut notes. Vibrant, rich, and interesting.  #roxanich #milva #2009vintage #istria #croatia #chardonnay #winesofcroatia #orangewine #konobaboba #murter
2009 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 5°

Dark saturated purple. Really interesting nose of dark leafy bramble fruit with an exotic hint of cinnamon and spice. Great fruit concentration, elderberries and some dark chocolate. There's also a crunchy element to the fruit, like a good loire cab franc. Still big and tannic and needs a few more years to chill out and develop some secondary notes.

Lucky enough to find this 2009 Castle Brook English Sparkling Wine for only £20 at Marks & Spencer. It shows how much more depth wine can have when matured for a little bit longer. Striking golden colour, great toastiness and body. Grab it while you can! 🍾🥂🍾🥂🍾🥂

When @andreedevove agreed to cook a traditional Burgundian dinner the occasion called for some serious wines! Not much of a Bordeaux drinker but I though the juxtaposition between old world and very old world was a fun study over beef Bourguignon. The ‘99 I am quite familiar with at this point. Always delivering a deliciously resinous, medicinal, cigar box nose with this kind of stewed fruit juicy ness on the palate. 
The ‘09 Branon was a very different sort of wine. Pure extracted/super polished dark purple juice. Almost overly luxurious and dripping. This is why I shy away from Bordeaux these days, I just can’t get behind this style much anymore. Regardless everyone really enjoyed this one. .
Krug 164 édition is always killer! ‘08 base vintage with reserve wines going back to 1990 😱! @krugoli I love this wine. I love this producer. This will be absolutely destructive when it has some additional age but absolutely beautiful to drink now. 
The Shaman is another favorite of mine. This one from the ‘14 vintage. Showing this super oxidative, nutty quality upon opening. This resolves with an hour of air leading to much greater purity and expression. Super biodynamic producer @champagne_marguet with amazing vineyard practices. 
Last but not least, the C+C from @suenenchampagne which was just drop dead gorgeous BdB. Defined by extreme purity of fruit and varietal character with a strong sense of terroir. All while being dry but not cloying, rich but not flabby. This wine really struck a harmony.

After tormenting over where to take foreign guests for best Korean hanwoo bbq experience in Seoul, I settled on Woo Tender 우텐더 for its hip bistro like ambience, and a diverse cuts of premium Hanwoo beef including tenderloin 안심, striploin 채끝, and highly marbled ribeye 꽃등심. It turned out to be a wise and happy choice, and the meat was astonishingly good, juicy, succulent, melting in the mouth like cotton candy😋. Fresh uni on top of medium rare cut of beef was unbelievable! Amazing though the beef was, still the highlight of the evening was the 2009 Opus One. The wine was simply spectacular, Olympian in its majesty and opulence, with floral, herbal, mocha aromas, silky tannins, long searing finish that was a cornucopia of delicious flavors. The wine was Mozartian in that it was easy to approach and enjoy out right, but with so many layers of art and craft hidden beneath 🤗. Chateau Beycheville, also from 2009 vintage, seemed austere and flat by comparison, but gradually revealed its pedigree once the wine opened up, with delicious black fruit flavors and fresh eathiness emerging. Happy, unforgetable evening of awesome food and amazing wines ☺. #iconicwines #opusone #opusone2009 #chateaubeycheville #2009vintage #foodporn #wootender #우텐더 #압구정핫플레이스 #steakwinepairing #hanwoobeef #instawine #winereviews #amazingwines #bestwines #먹스타그램 #finewines #vintagewines #cultwines #napalegend

"I have a confession to make," begins Jason Haas, "I'm afraid that the 2009 vintage was never a favorite of mine. However, time has a way of resolving this particular issue -- what you might call muscle-bound-ness -- with red wines." What he found in the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel is the subject of our newest blog (link in profile). #tablascreek #vineyard #librarywine #2009vintage #checkingin #metamorphosis #espritdebeaucastel #comingintoitsown
Special wine in tonight’s glass. This wine is my favorite wine from Hall wines. 2009 ( many close seconds and thirds-like choosing favorite children..can’t be done) but tonight I choose the company of this. Normally I drink Jack’s Masterpiece with burgers. But that’s just my habit. THIS is perfect with tonight’s steak Florentine grilled a perfect medium rare by my guy @captain_ron_11 But I digress. Let’s talk about the wine...sanguineous in color, medium plus tannins, decanted for 1 1/2 hours on the first tasting. Black pepper, dill, on the nose, cherry and red plum bomb plus a small fleeting moment of vanilla with a full mouth feel. Now.. 3 hours in and it’s more herbaceous and lots of cigar on the nose. Cherry is now in full burst in the mouth. They say the wine or the ingredients of a meal should be the star of a meal. I don’t always agree.. tonight? The wine did us in. NY strip and a ribeye, my mashed potatoes- ( so good you only need butter and S&P) , and my guy’s lovely Brazilian house salad with his homemade oven baked pumpernickel bread croutons,toms,red onion, blue cheese crumbles, and a cilantro jalapeño dressing. Say WHAAAAT? The wine has more time3+ years and is very oaky- I know this bc I’m allergic to hard woods and my nose is full... but do I care ? No. I do not.

A great day at @marcusbelgravia with @chelsea.lee.b celebrating our anniversary. 
Food definitely lived up to my expectations and to say nothing of the #EricRodez #blancdeblanc the absolutely stunning #FriedrichBecker #Spatburgunder and #jurancon to finish.

The #spätburgunder was the star. Brambly red fruits with blackcurrant and tomato leaf hanging around. Wonderful structure and plenty of mid-palate that carried to a wonderful finish. Young despite it's age and it paired wonderfully with the tasting menu. A shame that tasting menu isn't my daily meal.

Don't mind the cheeky half of #ChoreyLesBeaune from @domainetollotbeaut for a nightcap. #2009Vintage

Back from a wonderful weekend at the beach with the family. Three standout wines were all fantastic, but the 2009 Anthonij Rupert Cab Franc from South Africa was really singing. In that sweet spot with wonderful rich fruit and no signs of green, with developed tertiary flavors revealing layers of leather, peat, and tobacco rounding out a long finish. Still alive and kicking, but would drink this now.

I’m always reminded as a ‘Cristal girl’ - it’s my favourite champagne after all (note: I do love Krug, Salon, Dom Perignon very much too). If you read the history of Cristal, it’s actually quite interesting but that’s a story for another day. So anyway, my friend decided to throw me a subtle belated birthday dinner (which he does every year) and in every year, I do get a bottle of something close to my birth year - 1986. Over the years as I grow older, so are the bottles bottled in 1986 and they became a lot more expensive and this time I was curious what vintage we would be drinking. It was a 2009 for the night and it was a blind taste, we were not even given the hint of whether they were old world wine or new world. Eventually I picked my favourite 2 bottles that turned out to be the Chateau Angelus 2009 and Chateau Pichon Baron 2009. At the end of the night, he opened a bottle of 1986 Chateau d’yquem - I had many bottles of Chateau D’yquem but never a 1986 (a 98 pointer) - the sweetness and intensity is right, with a little hint of spiciness paired with a special baked tart with bird’s nest - ohhh lala it was so good! #finewine #louisroederercristal #chateaulynchbages #chateaupichonbaron #chateaupapeclement #chateauangelus #vieuxchateaucertan #chateaudyquem #ychateaudyquem #agrapartetfils #2009vintage #dinner

There is 24 Premier Cru vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny, Les Amoureuses being widely regarded the fines one. Slightly different terroir than the northern part of the village with rocky topsoil over limestone. All this provide great drainage, forcing roots of vines to go deep into cracks ensuring low yield delivering small concentrated berries. Christoph Roumier makes one of the finest impression. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Nervous energy. Deep aroma of dust cover blackberry, wild strawberry in balsamic, burned wood, new leather, merh rose and wet rocky soil. Palate delivers big time, broad, energetic long  with tannic grip and superb, border line, painful level of acidity. Sweet/ sour red berry fruit aftertaste macerated in balsamic and earth. Extremely exciting wine with exceptional capacity to mature over many decades. I will seek this wine out in the future.
