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.

2015 Bordeaux Wines

Grands Crus de BordeauxBordeaux wines from the 2015 vintage. The Lady loves her Bordeaux wines. The white wines are a great caviar and wine pairing.

Many members of the Union Des Grandes Crus de Bordeaux came into New York to show their 2015 vintage.

All of these wines demonstrated that 2015 was a great year in Bordeaux. The wines were balanced, and highlighted each regions character. Most showed their easy drinking now. Some others showed that as much as you could enjoy the wine today the wine needs time to develop.

For the favorite wine of the day, they were all good.

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.

The Bynum Virginia Block Sauvignon Blanc grapes comes from the Jane’s Vineyard and from the block of grapes named after his wife Virginia.

This 2016 is lively with its citrus and honeydew melon notes. To give this wine its medium body, neutral french oak barrels (132 gallon barrels ) were used during the wine making. The refreshing finish makes this a great summer casual wine.
