Janisson Baradon & Fils Champagne Le Toulettes Brut 2000

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Vintage: 2000
Type: Champagne
Country: France – Champagne

This is a special bottle of wine. Smooth and round with citrus notes and toasty vanilla. Lots of bubbles and acidity, so it will still last some more though it is drinking very well at the moment. The wine is the essence of great vintage champagne. If you can find a bottle buy it for a special occasion!

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.
