La Métropole, Cuvée Classique 2010

La Métropole, Cuvée Classique 2010

La Metropole, Cuvée Classique 2010 This is a Pays d’Oc wine from the Languedoc that blends three classic southern Rhône grape varieties – Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier – along with a smidge of Chardonnay. As is always the case with these varieties the wine combines soft, sweet, fleshy fruit with a certain body and structure. Little custard notes on the nose join apricot and peach, with a nutty undertone. Check this...

Chinese buy wine by the vineyard…not by the bottle!

Chinese buy wine by the vineyard…not by the bottle!

With its fairytale turrets and a 15th-Century tower, Chateau Latour Laguens is surrounded by vineyards in a region steeped in European tradition. But this chateau, south-east of Bordeaux, is also at the cutting edge of Asia’s growing economic might. The staff who tend the vineyards and make the wine are still French, but this is now a Chinese-owned domain. It has been taken over by the Longhai group based in eastern China, which has...

Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting

Wine tasting (often, in wine circles, simply tasting) is the sensory examination and evaluation of wine. While the practice of wine tasting is as ancient as its production, a more formalized methodology has slowly become established from the 14th century onwards. Modern, professional wine tasters (such as sommeliers or buyers for retailers) use a constantly evolving formal terminology which is used to describe the range of perceived...

Casellula Cheese & Wine Cafe

Casellula Cheese & Wine Cafe

    Our philosophy is simple: to share our passion for hand-made cheeses with as many people as possible. To that end, we have about 40 cheeses from all over the world on our list every day. The choices range from the familiar to the obscure; from mild to strong (and on to super, duper, crazy, stinky); from fresh to washed to blue. And because not every cheese goes with quince paste we take pains to pair each cheese with its...

2010 Primitivo del Tarantino, I Monili

2010 Primitivo del Tarantino, I Monili

Heralding from the Puglia region, the Primitivo grape has recently shown to be identical to California’s Zinfandel. What this wine doesn’t share in common with it’s North American cousin are very high tannin and alcohol levels. Displaying complex aromas of dark, plummy fruit and eucalyptus, the palate is juicy and rounded without being tannic or bitter. Extract...
