The 2017 Filius Chardonnay has been released today! According to Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock, 2017 was "a cracking vintage for pristine, tighter and lighter chardonnay." The latest vintage of this Filius blend is light and fine in touch, with a delicate citrus flavour and zesty, polished acid tang.

Rumiko Moriki one of the very few female master brewers in a male dominated industry in Japan is the 4th generation of her family’s sake brewery and runs it with her husband Hideki. Since taking over the family business, the owners and masters of the brewery have committed to producing exclusively Junmai sake with no additions of distilled alcohol. As well as harvesting organic rice themselves, they use laborious fermentation starter methods like Kimoto which are riskier but simply worth it in the end.
A slot canyon located on Najavo land in northern Arizona, Antelope Canyon was primarily formed by rainwater cascading down the canyon, picking up speed and sand as it rushed down the narrow passageways. The result is truly a sight to behold. #whynotwander
In a “great” vintage, the Grand Vin of classified growths obviously shines. But the rising tide of that year also elevates the “second” wines immensely. E.g., this ‘00 Sarget de Gruaud-Larose from St. Julien. I would have chosen this over a “first” from a lesser vintage. Classic claret. Beautifully balanced in every way. Restores one’s commitment to cellaring great red wines.

Go for the Pinot, stay for the Cab. This thing is a packed bruiser, deserving a steep decant–and an SOS-pad for your glasses. And, at 50 bucks, it remains one of Napa Valley’s great bargains. A brick wall of rich black cherry concentrate hits your face, flooding everything with sweet nectar and requiring a near-CHEW to dissolve towards your throat. Spicy green briar runs the gamut from carborundum to conifer while huge fruit, desperately attempting to evade the structure, wrings wet leather out on the sidewalk. You've had this wine, right?

2004 Krug Brut #Champagne. Although very young and nowhere near its ultimate potential, this is drinking beautifully now. There are lots of apple and pear aromas and flavors, with some toasty brioche in the background. The main issue with this young stage is that the acidity is quite prominent, so time is needed for things to balance.
DRC La Tache 96. Red fruits, sous bois and a touch leathery. Lots of energetic sweet fruits but still very restrained and constricted other than its soaring acidity. Tight tannins. I’ve had this bottle several times but it’s never failed to disappoint, will it ever be ready? If u have this bottle I’ll suggest u keep or even better, trade for another vintage!
IMO 1996 is one of the most overhyped vintages that has consistently disappointed. Other than a handful of producers who managed to tame the acidity the rest are just too angular and disjointed.
