Best experience of May

When I started my love affair with wine (i.e. tasting, learning and collecting) I got the advice to buy fine NV champagne and store them for a couple of more years before popping the cork. An excellent advice which has given my wonderful moments drinking superb champagne.

This particular bottle had a lively frothy bead with white cherries, apricots and some minerals ending with a both spicy and fresh finish.

Best experience of April

Dark ruby colour with a garnet hue on the rim. Black current and liquorice with some very soft tannins. Simply Australian wine at its best.

Best experience of March

26 years old and still got it. Needed some hours of airing, but who wouldn’t?! Amazing brick colour, soft cherries and velvety tannins.

Best experience of February

First there is chocolate and mocha. Then there is liquorice and even some leather. Full bodied with good ripe tannins.

Best experience of January

A gift from California and rare breed in the cellar. Although marvellous blueberries, leather, violets and nutmeg and silky tannins.

Best experience of the November

Golden nectar from Puligny-Montrachet and Olivier Leflaive. Can’t get much better than this. Every sip is a taste of heaven and you wish life would always be like this.
