2016 White Wine from Bordeaux and Caviar

2016 Chateau De Fieuzal and Siberian Sturgeon Caviar

2016 White wine from Bordeaux is a great pairing with Lady Elena Caviar. In the above picture is Siberian Sturgeon Caviar sustainably farmed in Italy.

Chateau De Fieuzal from the Pessac-Leognan region in Bordeaux France has produced another great white wine in the 2016 vintage.

The 2016 Chateau De Fieuzal white wine is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. The wine offers subtle aromas of white peaches, melon and some grassiness. This flows through the palate with softness and with tension. It has a long floral finish that has a touch of minerality shining through.This is a wine made to last many years.

The tension of the melded acidity and the mineraltiy makes this a great Lady Elena Caviar pairing.

Emidio Pepe

Emidio Pepe 1990 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wineThis is Emidio Pepe with his grand daughter Chiara (fifth generation) holding a bottle of his1990 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. As you can see the outside of this bottle was in perfect condition and Emidio looks pretty good as well.

1990 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

The 1990 was perfumey with ripe cherries, some tar, and balsmatic, On the palate there are smooth tannins along with some raisins.It finishes with balanced tannins and acidity leaving a perfumey finish It is showing its maturity in a elegant fashion as some high quality Barolo can show.

1997 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

1997 was a rainy year. Therefore this is a great wine but its longevity is not typical of the other wines Emidio Pepe and his wineswith a good 25 years of great drinking. This 1997 was poured from a perfect condition magnum. The wine was showing more age than the 1990. There was more raisins and balsmatic characteristics with the dried fruits and soft forest floor. The tannins were gentle and melting away in the finish. This wine is at it peak of drinking but with more years of enjoyment.

2010 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 

The wine is floral with violets, ripe cherries with some earthiness. On the palate there are sweet cherries with some charred barrel notes and elegant tannins.The finish is long and floral with its sweet cherries.

The wines may appear to be pricey for wines of Montpulciano d’Abruzzo but they are worth it. The quality and ageability of these wines put them in the ageing ability and class of Brunello and Barolo.

Champagne Krug CEO Approved Glasses

Champagne Krug CEO Approved Glasses are not flutes.

Champagne Krug

CEO, Maggie Henriquez,of Champagne Krug recommends that champagne to be enjoyed not from flutes. Flutes with their tall narrow shape mutes the beauty of champagne. The flutes do enhance the flow of the streaming bubbles but holds back on opening of the fine wines potential  in your glass. We all must recognize that champagne is a wine.

Flutes lessen the champagne experience similar to eating caviar from a silver spoon. Caviar should be enjoyed directly from a mother of pearl spoon or even directly off of your hand. Plastic and wooden spoons are also good choices.
