Prima comanda de la real-wineboutique.ro

January 22, 2016 Leave a comment

Am comandat saptamana trecuta cateva sticle de la noul magazin de vinuri online lansat recent de real-wineboutique.ro si logisitic totul s-a desfasurat usor si lin.

Sunt mai multe lucruri care m-au surprins placut:

  • am comandat 5 sticle in valoare totala de 300 Ron pentru a beneficia de transportul gratuit pentru comenzi peste 250 Ron si am optat pentru plata la livrare.
  • as fi putut procesa comanda chiar si fara a fi nevoie sa-mi creez un cont pe site-ul lor dar am ales sa o fac  pentru a putea fi informat de eventuale promotii sau alte noutati.comanda real
  • am comandat 3 vinuri de Bordeaux si unul din Portugalia care mi s-a parut interesant si mai era si in promotie.
  • in afara de mailul cu factura primit imediat dupa lansarea comenzii, am mai primit un mail care m-a notificat ca produsele comandate sunt in stoc si ca pachetul meu este pregatit pentru livrare avand din nou atasata factura, si altul care m-a notificat ca pachetul a fost preluat de catre curier si este in tranzit.
  • ultimul mail continea de asemenea un link direct de urmarire al pachetului pe site-ul curierului DPD. Mi-a placut faptul ca sunt notificat si stiu exact in ce stadiu este comanda mea si ca automat se trimite link-ul de urmarire.
  • imediat dupa lansarea comenzii am fost sunat pentru confirmarea ei. M-au informat ca acest telefon de confirmare este dat la lansarea primei comenzi doar, si ca ulterior la urmatoarele comenzi nu va fi nevoie de o alta confirmare telefonica atat timp cat lansez comanda de pe contul creat. Mi se pare de bun simt.

Am primit sticlele la 2 zile de la plasarea comenzii. Sticlele vin impachetate foarte bine in cutii de carton cu separatoare individuale astfel incat probabil ca incidenta accidentelor cu spartul lor este foarte mica.

IMG-20160121-WA006Ca bonus cred, mi-au trimis si cateva drop stopuri cu brandul real,- wine boutique. Din experienta stiu ca sunt extrem de utile cand torni in pahare fara sa mai trebuiasca sa folosesti un servetel sau o carpa pentru a preveni caderea vinului pe fata de masa sau pe haine.

Urmeaza mai multe comenzi din partea mea cu siguranta.

Four great wines: Pierre Yves Colin Morey, Bruno Giacosa, Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc and Duhart Milon

January 20, 2016 Leave a comment

Had a lovely dinner on Monday evening at a friend’s house and four people managed to go quickly through 4 bottles of wines in just a couple of hours. It was not intended as a speed contest but when the wine is that good it just dries quickly from the glass.

2012 Pierre Yves Colin-Morey Santenay 1er Cru “La Comme” was a stunning surprise for all of us. It’s the first time I’m buying and tasting this producer and for sure it won’t be the last time. In fact it just opened my appetite for discovering more of his wines. This Chardonnay from a less famous Burgundy appellation needs to spend some time in the decanter in order to reveal its exotic and exuberant aromatic profile. Rich and decadent, it exudes very intense aromas of ripe tropical fruits, yellow melon and mango, with complex shades of toast and vanilla. Again rich and highly textured in the mouth, it shows a perfect balance between sweet tropical fruit, stone minerality and vibrant acidity. Long finish, fresh with sweet fruit lingering in the aftertaste. I see lots of similarities with a great 1er Cru Puligny Montrachet. (95/100)

Second white was 2013 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc that shows good richness of citrus and tropical fruit, with vanilla and honeysuckle nose. It is more supple, with higher acidity typical for a Sauvignon Blanc, but overall a well balanced, rich and complete wine. (94/100)

2007 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco spent about 1 h 30 min in the decanter before being poured. In the Burgundy Zalto glass this wine opens up very nice and quickly. It shows a rich aromatic profile where tar, fresh raspberries and rose petals take the center stage, and as it breathes more profound aromas of savory truffles jump from the glass. Supple and very smooth for such a young Barbaresco, it is full and supple on the palate, with silky smooth tannins, sweet and pure red cherry and raspberry fruit, spices and savory cured meat. Long finish, very elegant and feminine wine. (94-95/100)

2010 Chateau Duhart Milon spent only 20 minutes in the decanter before being poured in the glass, and it is surprisingly open already. It shows sweet cassis and pencil shavings, with refreshing cedar and brett. Full bodied, strong but polished tannins, good intensity of the fruit on the palate that balances the tannin structure. Long finish. (94/100)

Nine shades of Syrah/Shiraz ! (Tasting event WED January 27th)

Shiraz, or Syrah, is a very popular grape variety with lots of fans all over the world. And what is not to like about it? The wines are friendly, juicy, fruity and spicy, and the best cases are highly complex, richly textured and profound. It is a grape variety worth exploring.

Its recent reputation came also from the New World of wine, mostly from Australia and specifically from the Barossa Valley. We are all expecting young, very ripe and fresh wines from New World Shiraz, but we were recently amazed by a few mature wines made of, exactly, New World Australian Shiraz.

This is how the idea popped up to explore a step further and to compare with other different terroirs across the world and discover each individual variation. And this is what this wine tasting is all about:

Nine shades of Syrah/Shiraz !

2010 Aurelia Visinescu Anima Syrah, Dealu Mare, Romania

2012 Nachbil Syrah, Dealurile Sătmarului, Romania

1998 Rolf Binder Veritas Winery Heysen Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia (93 pct.)

1994 Elderton Command Single Vineyard Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia (92 pct.)

1995 Elderton Command Single Vineyard Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia (95 pct.)

2012 Chateau Puech-Haut Saint-Drezery Tete de Belier, Languedoc-Roussillon, France (93-95 pct.)

2006 La Peira Terrasses du Larzac ‘Las Flors de la Peira’, Languedoc-Roussillon, France (94 pct.)

2012 E. Guigal Saint-Joseph ‘Cuvee Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’, Rhone, France (91 pct.)

2011 M. Chapoutier Hermitage Monier de la Sizeranne, Rhone, France (92 pct.)

We will meet at Restaurant Dada at 19:30. The cost is 275 lei pp (wine, tapas and water). The second course can be ordered a la carte from the restaurant menu, if you want. Confirmation is required, as well as advance payment. For reservations please contact us at cosmin.grozea@gmail.com or nicusor.cazan@gmail.com or by phone:
