1961 #Volnay #burgundy the disappointment of a perfect condition bottle corked! A great wine underneath but that wet cardboard is just too much of a distraction.

According to Alan who is nearly 5, this 76 #beerenauslese, in order, smells of: orange, cinnamon, mango, coconut and peaches. All i would add is the apricot and a touch of toffee. #delicious #riesling

A Birthday treat, 1976 Erbacher Marcobrunn Beeranauslese! Perfect with Birthday cake =)

Good Morning Austin!

1976 #Rheingau Hattenheimer Wisselbrunn Auslese, all about the botrytis spice: ginger, cinnamon and clove with citrus and a touch of Apricot. Great contrast to other Schonborn 70's Auslese drank recently. Really got to share these at #rieslingfeier18 #rarewinedinners #cellartreasures #Riesling

Training wheels are off! After a few hours of dad holdin him up and numerous pointers he mastered it! =)

91 Monthelie Premier Cru, Les Riottes, still plenty of tannin, dry but juicy, red cherry and earth with a fine line of minerality/salinity. Delicious with Soy Honey Chicken and some Delice D'Bourgogne on Sourdough.

#Rheingau 1975 Schloss Schonborn Hattenheimer Nussbrunnen #Auslese not as expressive and voluptuous as the 76's but more balance and acidity. A deliciously sweet palate of pineapple and honey. Great with a King Prawn stir fry. #rarewinedinners #Riesling #1975 #wine #cellartreasures

Beautiful 1969 Chambolle-Musigny, so pretty and fragrant, floral with sweet, musk, raspberry and forest floor, this took 30 minutes in decanter to come around, starting tart and thin then gaining weight and sweetness, 60 minutes in and it is brighter, fuller and excellent, round, soft and very appealing. #cellartreasures #rarewinedinners #burgundy #1969

Some of the empty bottles from our epic and first Rare Wine Dinner in the US. A superb night, thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. #rarewinedinners #napa #cellaringisthekey #Bordeaux #burgundy

1945 Chateau Latour Blanche Barsac Sauternes with a superb selection of mini desserts. Incredible concentration, dark and treacle like, rich, unctious, nutty, caramel and good acidity. A great end to an epic dinner in Napa! #rarewinedinners #1313main #napa #cellartreasures

1975 Quintarelli Amarone & Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese Cake, a perfect pairing and an excellent rich red wine with lovely raisin Amarone goodness. #rarewinedinners #napa #donapa #cellartreasures #cellaringisthekey #1313main
