Château Hyot 2015

Côtes De Bordeaux - Castillon, Bordeaux A.C., France
11 days ago

Lori scored this wine: 90/100

This beautiful dark red Bordeaux presents with hints of dark chocolate, coffee and ripe plums. The silky smooth finish becomes more pronounced with decanting. Pairs well with rich meats or vegan meals with bold sauces. Drink now since 2015 was a great year or this wine will cellar well for a treat in the future. 13.5%

Di Sardegna Riserva

Sella & Mosca Di Sardegna Riserva Cannonau 2016

Sardinia, Italy

Lori scored this wine: 92/100

A joyful bold red wine that reminds me of southern Italy. Flowery and berry bouquet will nicely introduce the blackberry, plum, and leather palate. The long finish will go well with moderately strong cheeses and red BBQ meat. Enjoy!

A bold and rich Italian red with a not so subtle bouquet, will surprise you with it’s sophisticated palate. The dark chocolate, black berries, and plum flavours will be an excellent addition to pasta and BBQ meat. Very well priced for such a good wine. 13% alcohol

This delicious, medium-bodied deep red is a tasty addition to any meal. Hints of plum, coffee and deep red fruit on the nose and palate. Smooth medium finish that is a real treat.

Unusual Wine Experience

Attending the Burgundy Wine School in Beaune, France for a 3 hour lesson. It was very immersive and difficult to only "taste" the myriad of amazing wines instead of "drink" all of them.
