Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
N.V. Nyetimber Classic Cuvée. We had this on Saturday night and it was really nice quaffer. Apples and lemon zest. Not comparable in complexity with the Champagnes I like from Launois, but a delightful #wine that proves England has REAL potential and quality to make excellent Sparkling wine that can rival the French stuff. No wonder the French are buying vineyards in the UK.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
