Sweetly fragrant, the Recioto displays linzer torte and black cherry with notes of loam and bitter chocolate. It’s viscous and very densely flavored, finishing on a rich, sweet note.-International Wine Review 90 Points

Winery: Accordini

The Accordini Winery

The Accordini Winery is settled in the heart of the classic Valpolicella, Pedemonte. The estate is approximately 25 hectares in Negrar. The Accordini Winery focuses on three varietals: Corvina,  Rossignola, Rondinella, Corvinoni, Garganega. The focus is the Ripassa style and Corvina grape, where Accordini dominates.

Guido Accordini, the family’s third generation winemaker, wanted to make the winery a leader in high quality wines production. Guido’s father  built a new cellar for this high quality production. Here the most famous “Amarone” was made.

 

"A tiny Amarone producer of impeccable quality; the Le Bessole bottling has traditional spice, earth notes, and deep fruit; the Riserva is tannic; most of the wines offer elegance and food-friendly acidity."

- Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006

Bernardins Muscat de Beaumes de Venise Hommage (500ml)

Bernardins Muscat de Beaumes de Venise Hommage is made from 75% Muscat petits grains blancs, 25% Muscat petits grains noirs.

The wine shows a golden hue with orangy highlights. Endearing nose of grape, orange peel and a honeyed accent. Mild at point of entry, spendid aromatic intensity, sultana, candied orange, rose petal and refined spice. Our Muscat de Beaumes de Venise has a great age ability.

For every vintage of our Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, the grapes are picked by hand. We press them straightaway to ferment the juice without skins. We don’t add any yeasts and keep the alcoholic fermentation in check by temperature control. Vin Doux Naturel winemaking involves stopping fermentation to preserve the grapes’ natural sweetness. During vinification, we watch the vats day and night and add 95% grape spirit just at the right moment. At this stage, the wine’s final balance is at stake. For the Hommage, we blend different vintages, aged in stain steel vats, to create the complexity of a long lasting wine.

The Hommage is a versatile companion to many deserts. Most expressive with dry biscuits and dry fruits, it retains all its character served with a fruit tart, puff paestry and chocolate or coffe desserts. To appreciate as well with duck breasts and figs. Served with a roquefort or a silton, it is marvellous. Simply as an aperitif with some dry fruit or grilled almonds. It's also a good compagnion for a classy cigars.

Cazaux Les Grains de Novembre NV (500ml)

Cazaux Les Grains de Novembre NV  is a made from 100% White Grenache.

This slightly crazy wine was born partly from observation and mostly from a dream. In fact we noticed that the white Grenache grape, normally an early variety and generous in alcohol, had, from time to time at the harvest, a few grains per grape which had a lovely violet color and were slightly dried up by noble rot. Naturally the sugar concentration was exceptional! The only problem was to verify if the same phenomena extended to all the grapes if we pushed back the date of harvesting.

Over the years (and with some harvests remaining on the vines!), we noticed that this dream was only possible on every 4th line of vines and in a very specific aerodynamic exposure throughout the domain. It’s the price to pay for making a white sweet wine in the Côtes du Rhône! As a result, naturally, the production of this nectar is a bit secret given that we make only one barrel in the good years!

The result is surprising and incomparable. It has a tile-red color with an orange hue. On the palate it is aromatic, giving tastes of dried apricot, pineapple, and in passing, a hint of lavender honey, quince, cinnamon, caramel, pear and grilled almonds. One can appreciate it on its own which allows you to, at your ease, analyse and appreciate its varying perfumes.

Land: Slopes of Aptien cobalt or grey clay.
Maturing: 2 years in barrels
Winemaking: Harvested at up to 24° potential alcohol content. Alcoholic fermentation to 13.5% vol and 190 g/l sugar left. Fortified with SO2.
Date of Harvesting: Between the 15th Oct. and 15th Nov. Sorted three times.
To Drink: Should be served at 14°c. Bottle should be opened 30 mins before serving.

Try it at the beginning of meal with foie gras and sweet onion preserve, with parsley cheeses which are always in harmony with great liqueur wines or during dessert with dried fruit cake (apricots, figs & nuts). It can harmonise with all of the above due its lovely balance of residual sugars.

Romariz Vintage Port 2011

The winter preceding the 2011 harvest was wetter and colder than the 30-year average. Budburst occurred as usual around 19th March and warm weather and rainfall in April produced vigorous growth. At the beginning of May dry conditions set in and there was little rainfall in eastern areas of the Douro Valley until late August. However the vines were able to draw from the plentiful ground water reserves built up early in the year and bunches developed and ripened in ideal conditions. Véraison (coloring of the grapes) occurred a little earlier than usual on 15th June.
Mild weather in June and July was broken only by a heat wave in the second half of June. August was hot and dry, with perfectly timed rainfall on 21st August and 1st September rounding off an excellent ripening season and producing a well-balanced crop. Picking started in mid September in the Cima Corgo area of the Douro Valley. Fermentations were long, allowing balanced and complete extraction, and musts displayed intense color and powerful fruit character from the outset.


Deep inky purple color. Intricate nose with aromas of blackberries and logan berries, subtle hints of amber and spring blossom and delicate spice. A tight, well-formed palate with an abundance of dark berry fruit, rich chocolate and liquorice, culminating in a long finish. Firm, closely woven tannins that give the wine great structure and body. An elegant finely constituted Vintage Port which will drink beautifully now or age quietly in the cellar.
