Cuvee de la Reine Jeanne

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Vintage: 2000
Type: Châteauneuf-du-pape
Country: France

I love a good Châteauneuf-du-pape, and this one was great. When you get a chance to drink an older red, it is a pleasure. The flavours have developed, the colour is supurb and it feels like a special occation. If you can find this in store, buy a bottle.

Bock Ermitage

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

Vintage: 2006
Type: Blend
Country: Hungary – Villany

An excellent Hungarian wine, if a bit expensive. One of Hungary’s most famous vineyards in their premiere wine region this mixed red ( Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and others) aged in oak before being bottled. Great to drink and a fine example of Hungarian wine.
