Jane scored this wine: 93/100

Exquisite! Luscious and sweet, an aromatic dream in a glass. All the elements in this Riesling Spatlese are in perfect balance. if you find any bottles of this left at Vintages, grab one and save it for a special occasion. Better yet, open it and make an average day spectacular! Tasted Feb. 2019

Multi-award winner. Rich, aromatic, elegant and always a hit. The nose shows ripe fruit, honey, vanilla and oak. The intense palate develops these aromas into beautiful layers of candied dates, figs, apricots, nuts, gingerbread and caramel. Wow! very smooth with lingering rich caramel finish. Enjoy in a variety of ways: neat, on ice, in cocktails or poured into coffee with whipped cream. Bonus fact: A couple of ounces poured into a glass of hot water makes a very fine cough medicine!

This delightful Mosel Reisling is so well named - "Little Drops of Gold"! Gives supple notes of honeyed peach, subtle minerality and lemon in a silky-satin mouthfeel. Unforgettable. Enjoy with curries or alternately, with dessert. A treat for those who love a sweet Riesling. Tasted Jan. 2019

Domaine Seguinot-Bordet has been making wine since 1590 and their expertise shows in this delicate, balanced and elegant Chablis. Fragrant ripe pear & tropical notes with subtle vanilla and just-right acidity levels. Elegant choice for seafood stew or roast chicken. Tasted Jan. 2019
