Archive | Wine of the Month

“Wine of the Month” is a wine that we found particularly memorable or especially interesting to give a mention. It does not have to be a very “fine” wine, exclusive or unusual, rather it is simply something that deserves to be mentioned and appreciated. A short notice of 100-15 words.

Chateau de Beaucastel blanc vieilles vignes 1991

Château de Beaucastel Vieilles Vignes blanc 1991, Châteauneuf-du-Pape | Britt’s Wine of the Month

This is a magnificent white wine, probably the best white in the entire Rhone Valley. A full-bodied wine made with the Roussanne grape. The nose is intense with aromas of beeswax, honey, ripe apricot. Full-bodied, rich, almost oily in the mouth. Very long finish. The wine has a great ageing potential and this 1991 is […]

The grapes are harvested early in the morning […]

Federico II Rex Sicilie, Azienda Agricola Milazzo, bubbly from Sicily | Åsa’s Wine of the Month

This month I have picked something unusual, a sparkling wine from Sicily. Forget for a moment the champagne, the cremants, or the Franciacortas from northern Italy. Azienda Agricola Milazzo defies the hot climate in Sicily and makes some excellent sparkling wines. To get grapes with sufficient acidity they harvest for example the chardonnay (three different […]
