Vintage 2006 H. Blin Champagne
Wine Enthusiast tasting notes: Crisp, tight acidity and still-young, fresh fruitiness give this wine its initial brightness. Rich and full in the mouth, it also has a range of complex fruit flavors followed by hints of toastiness that will only continue to develop. It should be aged further, so drink from 2016.
$50 range. You’ll recognize the name “Louis Roederer” as the same name you see on the Cristal champagne label. Fresh and creamy with almond, toast and citrus notes.
Finely knit and elegant overall, this vivacious Champagne is creamy and satiny in texture, with layers of yellow plum, chalk, toast, glazed apricot and lemon curd. Offers a lingering, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020.
- Wine Enthusiast rates Louis Roederer 92:
To judge by the cork, this bottling has some age, giving it a toasty as well as fruity character that adds complexity to this baked-apple and citrus-flavored wine.
And this is how I like to consume craft beer – in chocolate! These Deschutes Brewery chocolates are available at Chocolate Paper in Roanoke, Virginia. A reduction is made out of the Deschutes Porter then combined with a rich chocolate ganache. Yum!
