Wine Fact// Wine names usually indicate the geographical region or grape varieties. European wines are typically named after the region they’re from (ie: Bordeaux wine is made in the Bordeaux region of France). Whereas Non-European wines are typically named by the type of grape (ie: Cabernet Sauvignon from California).

Christophe #Roumier would not have approved. This would undoubtedly turn into a magnificent bottle in a few years, but instead all we get is a glimpse of greatness

Bouchard La Romanée 93 97 01

1993 surprisingly expressive, pure, deep, luminous!
1997 deep, concentrate, jammy fruit, powerful, not really a style of la Romanèe, but still a pleasant wine.
2001 the last year of élevage and bottling that was taken care by Bouchard before transfer to ligerbelair.

Château La Dominique is situated in some prime real estate in Saint-Émilion. It is located in the Graves region of the appellation, alongside Cheval Blanc and Figeac. This is the outskirts of Saint-Émilion, bordering some of the best properties in neighboring Pomerol, such as La Conseillante, l'Evangile, Pétrus, and Gazin. In fact, if you're looking for the best view of Pomerol, it's from the terrace at La Dominique. So it goes without saying that La Dominique offers very reasonably priced wines, and has seen a recent increase in quality. We attended a nice tasting of some recent vintages (2008, 2010, 2012), in addition to 2014 Relais de la Dominique (the 2nd wine) and 2011 Clement Pichon (in Haut-Médoc). While the 2010 is the most impressively structured, it was clear that the 2012 was the most interesting and accessible wine of the evening. It's worth checking out.

I can't tell you how proud I am of my bro @willtrow and team @yung_dop_aoc @erichendry @localrestaurantidiot and the rest of the supporting cast including you guys @sandiliciousness @yungbeaujolais !! They just received the honour of being picked as the 3rd best new restaurant in all of Canada by @enroutemag which is huge! Two years ago Will and Sandi took a significant risk and moved here from Montreal with the goal of opening a kick butt wine bar and for those of you who have visited I can tell you they have accomplished this goal! It's awesome to see them get recognized for all the hard work they (whole team) have put in over the last year and a half (and more)! I'm also proud to see three Edmonton restaurants make the top ten including the awesome guys at @barclementine and also @alderroom whose wine list is put together by my friend @erik_no_mercier !! Alberta is on the rise in the food and wine scene! Congrats to all the winners and my friends... if you haven't been in to @barvonderfels yet you had best do so soon!! #aircanadatop10 #enroutemag #bestnewrestaurant #barvonderfels #clementine #alderroom #cafelinnea #yyc #yeg #restaurant #food #foodie #winebar #Calgary #Alberta #Edmonton #westisbest #winegeek #winenerd #winelover #corkdork #bigjuice #grosjus

Wine and poolside fashion show!! Had such a fun night with my girl boo giving people some great wine 🍷💁🏼

Just to show that my cellar consists of more than big Barossa reds! This went down a treat last night whilst binge watching Netflix. The wine was far too sophisticated for the show we were watching. Smooth, elegant modern Shiraz from the West which seemed to evaporate in the glass and demand a second bottle. But we restrained ourselves for another day. 😎 Margaret River is known for its Cabernet's, but this shows what they can do with Shiraz. #voyagerestate #margaretriver #shiraz #2011vintage #wine #winetasting #winegeek #instawine #winesofinstagram #wineenthusiast #winelover #winetime #australianwine #aussiewine #redwine

Bouchard La Romanée 90 99
1990 sweet, tea, bouquet, super-expressive and very nicely balanced! Fresh and capable of drinking well for another decade.

1999 will be beautiful in 5-10 years from now.

I knew it was love from the moment we met.
Our first encounter comes back to me and your sweet scent returns the memories vividly and intensely. I can recall what I was wearing, eating, even thinking. You changed my life that night, and tonight, I can feel it all over again. Washing over me, the emotion is an overwhelming euphoria that ignites tears and smiles all at once. You're different this time, layered and more complex, evolved. I didn't forget you then, and I won't forget you now. You beautiful creature, how lucky I am to have found you. Thank you for changing my life in more ways than one.

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou | 2006 | Bordeaux Blend | Ducru has been a classic example of what we love in Saint-Julien, and has been one of our go to Bordeaux's that drink at such a high quality without forking over super hefty prices for top Bordeaux. Notes of cassis, dark cherries, dried herbs, cedar, red plum, baking spice, mint, smoke and pencil shavings. Still a little tight, with plenty of fruit dominance on the palate. Wonderfully structured, great freshness and energy with firm tannins on the lengthy finish. At over a decade, this is still beaming with youth, decant over 2-3 hours or enjoy it over the next 10+ years. | 94 points | $140 |

A #tbt in honor of returning to Napa/Sonoma in exactly three weeks from today 💓 we have had this trip planned for so long, and I couldn't be happier about being able to support so many friends and colleagues in person after what their entire community has been through the past week. I'm empowered by the stories of resilience, and I'm enlightened by the neighborly love. See you soon, wine country!

A big congratulations to the guys over at @turkeyflat for winning the 2017 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for Best Young Red Wine at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Their 2016 Grenache is the first ever Grenache to win the trophy. 🍷 🏆 🎉

The fruit for their Grenache is sourced from their own 100 year old vines. These old vines produce exceptionally concentrated fruit which translates into a style of Grenache for which they have become famous for.

We currently have the 2015 Turkey Flat Grenache in stock and are anxiously waiting for our allocation of the 2016!

We are taking one for the team and eating all the Conca D’Oro pizza until it closes, now earlier than expected, on Halloween. I don’t know what team we are referring to but it sounded like a good excuse. Oh, the wine? Love it. We are just busy drowning in dough and cheese for this moment.
