LeDomduVin: 3 to Party

3 to party

The other night, I opened 3 bottles of these 3 beautiful wines for a private party. What a blast! 

Krug Vintage 2000

Krug 2000 is a rich and complex vintage champagne that mimics the uniqueness of the last year of the millennium. Nicknamed "Stormy Indulgence," it is dense and intense. Beyond its attractive pale golden color and fine bubbles, it boasts aromatics of yellow and stone fruits, mingling lightly toasted brioche, mineral stones, and sea breeze notes. The palate is gorgeous, rich, complex, layered, and lengthy. What a beauty! 

Louis Latour Batard Montrachet 2016

This wine exemplifies the exceptional aging potential of high-quality white burgundy, particularly those bearing the name "Montrachet". At 7 years old, this Bâtard-Montrachet from Louis Latour was at the perfect age for consumption. Its pale gold color is a sign of age, and yet, it possesses a youthful nose, boasting complex aromas of stone fruits and hints of vanilla mixed with smoky and toasty notes. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich, and well-balanced, with hints of buttery, mineral, herbal and brioche nuances. The finish is refreshing, with a pleasant hint of saltiness and chalky minerality. Love it. 

Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes 2019

Ponsot is a staple in my book, and this “Clos de le Rocche VV 2019” has been recurring in my choice of wine for different events over the past 10 months. Some may argue that it is too young and must be waited for a few years. And yet, it is such a good wine, and it has been so approachable these past months that I could not resist serving it again. Light in color, yet intense and dense in the nose and palate. The nose offers bright, freshly crushed wild red cherry aromas with floral, mineral, and earthy notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is vibrant, vivid, fresh, elegant, and refined, with a long, delightful finish. Love it. 

Cheers! Santé!
