Today is exactly one year since I posted the first picture on @winewherever, and I'm so thankful for all the attention that I'm being blessed with. I know how short and precious time is, so thank you truly for spending your time on me🙏❤️ . . Chateau Margaux 2004 1.cru 79% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot 7% Petit Verdot 4% Cabernet Franc. . The bouquet opens up with after around one hour in the decanter, showing beautiful suptile notes of dark wild berries, cedar, licorice root, pencil shavings and flint, and some smoky notes. All in a perfect balance. The palate is extremely well balanced too, with a lovely flavour of nuts, lavender, roses, dark chocolate and juicy fruits. The tannins are fully integrated, soft and smooth. It is medium-full bodied and in the beginning of the drinking window, with many years still to go. This is a very elegant wine that had my attention to the very last drop. . . #chateaumargaux #margaux #firstgrowth #bordeauxred #bordeauxwine #bordeaux #leftbank #frenchwine #redwine #redbordeaux #wineinsta #whitewine #winelife #winenotes #winereview #winewherever #somelier #winenight #wines #vin #wein #vino #vinorosso #wineoclock #wineaddict #winelovers #winelove #winelover #drinkwine @chateaumargaux

It's no secret that I'm big fan of the wines from Joseph Phelps, but learning about their nurture for sustainability makes me even more in love. They have planted olive and fruit trees to increase the biodiversity, and they have installed bluebird and owl boxes so the birds can limit the vine pests. They even house bees, chickens and sheeps to fertilize, pollinate and mow down the cover crops in the spring. They compose skin and stems back to the vineyard and they use power from their own solar panels. What a lovely place! . . Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend 2004 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Merlot 12% Petit Verdot 2% Malbec aged 24 months in new french oak. . It needed more than four hours in the decanter to finely open up and let the happy visitors in. The bouquet is packed with powerful opulent fragrance of leather, wild berries, tobacco, cheese an permanent marker. On the palate it is even more powerful with intense tannins that are not yet fully integrated, full bodie, and a super well balance between the acidity and the juice fruit. It has notes of white peber, espresso, dark chocolate and prunes. It has the resembles of a young left bank Bordeaux. A truly outstanding wine, with a long life ahead and not fully mature yet. I would wait a least a nother five years to revisit this vintage. . . . . #josephphelps #napavalley #napewine #winery #vineyard #redwine #somelier #winewherever #winelife #winelovers🍷 #winelovers #whitewine #wine #wein #vin #vino #vinorosso #winetime #winetasting #winereview #wineblog #winetasting #instagold #instawine #winemoments #wines #winenight #cabarnetsauvignon #merlot @josephphelps

Over the last couple of weeks, the temperature has been almost unbearable, so this morning I decided to take a dive in the sea with my colleague before work. As I laid on the back in the water, facing the clear blue sky, with the chilling sea wrapped around my skin, holding me in zero gravity, it became obvious that this weekend needs Champagne! . . Pierre Peters "Les Chetillons" Cuvée Speciale Brut 2002 blanc de blanc 4-5g/L dosage Disgorged 2010 . The bouquet opens up instantly with mature and powerful notes of apricot, overripe red apples, brioche, minerals, and green leaves. The palate is super well balanced. It has notes of fresh hazelnut, cranberry, pineapple and a smooth finish of toffee. It is fat and rich with some oxidated notes and a pleasant amount of acidity. This is a great expressive champagne and it is in a beautiful spot right now. Enjoyed your weekend! . . #pierrepeters #champagne #winewherever #champagnelover #champagnepop #champagnenight #champagnelife #wine #wein #vin #vino #viño #whitewine #winemoments #winetasting #sommelier #instagold #instawine #goodlife #winereview #winenotes #insta #winenight #winemoments #sparkling #sparklingwine #bubbles #lovechampagne #summer @champagnepeters

The swamps might be an ideal place for an evocative shot, but it is certainly no place for humans! A little less than 1000 mosquitos put there life on the line to get a piece of me and my wine, (and I don't think they even cared about the spectacular vintage), so I had to itch my way through this bottle... . . CHÂTEAU LA LAGUNE 3. CRU HAUT-MÉDOC 1982 . The bouquet opens up immediately with lovely mature notes of vanilla, oak, smoke, leather and minerals. The palate is balanced and smooth with decreasing amount of soft tannins and notes of herbs, rhubarb, dark berries, and chocolate. Medium bodie, and it is fully mature and probably on a downward slope. Even at 36 years of age it is still drinking beautifuly, but I wouldn't expect any more development, so drink now. All in all a great wine. . . #lalagune #chateaulalagune #bordeauxred #bordeauxwine #bordeaux #leftbank #frenchwine #redwine #redbordeaux #wineinsta #whitewine #winelife #winenotes #winereview #winewherever #somelier #winenight #wines #vin #wein #vino #vinorosso #wineoclock #wineaddict #winelovers #winelove #winelover #hicking #love #summer

At 1400 feet of elevation at Howell Mountain, the beautiful estate of Dunn Vineyards is overlooking the chilling fog of the valley. Being on a hillside the grapes need a thick skin to survive, and the thick skin is where the concentration of tannins and polyphenols are very high. The wine undergoes 32 months in the new french oak barrels and consistent of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. . . Dunn Vineyards 2002 Napa valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Blend of Howell mountain and valley grapes) . Around two hours of air, the bouquet opens up with beautiful notes of mushroom, green grass, dust, eucalyptus and permanent marker (not as bad as I sounds) The palate is well balanced with edgy tannins and medium-full bodie. It has notes of tobacco, leather, cigar box, blackberry, roses and dark chocolate. Somehow it to me has more of a resemblance of a Nebbiolo rather than a fat cab, but I really like this dusty and complex wine and all its unique style. . . #dunnvineyards #napavalley #napavalleywine #napacab #cali #californiawine #redwine #somelier #winewherever #winelife #winelovers🍷 #winelovers #whitewine #wine #wein #vin #vino #vinorosso #winetime #winetasting #winereview #wineblog #winetasting #instagold #instawine #winemoments #wines #winenight #cabarnetsauvignon @dunnvineyards

When the sunset reflect it's golden shine in this beautiful bottle, that has preserved it's original layout for more than a half century, it marks the beginning of my own reflection of the prestige content. Conterno is definitely one of the icons of Piemonte. They belong to the traditionalists when it comes to winemaking. 7 years before bottling and up to four weeks of meceration time (that's a lot!) so it's obvious that they make wine for long time cellering. . . Giacomo Conterno, Cascina Francia, Barolo 2000 . Even though it's 18 years old, it was very closed to begin with, but after 3-4 hours in the decanter it came out beautifuly. The nose has powerful dusty notes of topsoil, cinnamon, anise, roses and spices. The expressive palate has notes of tobacco, coffee, raisin, and a long finish of dark bitter chocolate. It is beautifuly balanced and it is super dry and dusty, with powerful tannins that has just started to come around. A textbook example of Nebbiolo and every thing I wish for in a Barolo. This could easily involve positively for a couple of decades more. I really love this conterno! . . #conterno #giacomoconterno #barolo #barolowine #piemonte #italianwine #redwine #somelier #winewherever #winelife #winelovers🍷 #winelovers #whitewine #wine #wein #vin #vino #vinorosso #winetime #winetasting #winereview #wineblog #winetasting #instagold #instawine #winemoments #wines #winenight #nebbiolo
