Wine Spectator rating: 92 points

Winemaker's Notes:

The signature of Nicolas Feuillatte; intense, impertinent pleasure! There is simply no other rosé Champagne like this cuvée from Nicolas Feuillatte. Blended from 90% red grapes with a dollop of Chardonnay, this wine explodes in the glass with vivid aromas and flavors of raspberry, strawberry and red currants.

Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Moya 2009 shows blackcurrant, mint, slightly oaky (roasted nuts) on the nose. The mouth is full of fruits along with some notes of licorice on the aftertaste which make it fresh. This wine is very concentrated with silky tannins. Easy to drink now and for the next 2 to 3 years.
My Notes:

About Chateau Moya:

Chateau Moya was recently established from the purchase of a vineyard, which was previously maintained as a cooperative winery in the Cotes de Castillon region of Bordeaux.  

In December 2008 David Curl, owner of Château Gaby in Fronsac decided to invest in this beautiful land located a few hundred meters from the Saint-Emilion appellation.

So in Sainte Colombe, on the production area Cotes de Castillon Bordeaux, Damien Landouar, who has been making wine since 1999 in Gaby, will undertake the winemaking to make the great wines in the region.

PRICE ON 10/1/2014: $14.99

Winemaker's Notes:

This sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.
My Notes:

Vinous / Antonio Galloni rating: 91 points
PRICE ON 10/1/2014: $19.99

Winemaker's Notes:

A straw yellow color. Creamy mousse and delicate, long-lasting bead. On the nose, it is rich, with excellent fruit, releasing scents of yellow apple and peach, with notes of wisteria and acacia blossom. Wonderful balance and elegance complement a pleasurably crisp spiciness. The palate holds delicious vein of acidity, displaying a crisp, savoury mouthfeel. Generous, lingering flavours nicely mirror the nose and achieve perfect balance.

About Adami:

Solid roots of effort and tradition have given the life-blood to wines exuberant, and full of fruit. Following grandfather Abele and father Adriano, the youngest generation, Armando and Franco have brought to the house of Adami a refined technological approach to the art of producing some of the best spumante wines of the Valdobbiadene. The direct involvement in the success of their Prosecco production is demonstrated in Franco’s current leadership of the Valdobbiadene Consorzio. This is how the family expresses the values of their land: sound work, respect for human relationships, a sense of hospitality and continuity between past and present. An estate, and above all, a family.

In 1920 Grandfather Abele purchased the "Giardino" vineyard (whose name “Zardini” dates to 1717) from Count Balbi-Valier. A southern facing amphitheatre with shallow calcareous soil, the Prosecco vines cling to chestnut stakes and it is here that the Adami’s nurture the production of its greatest spumante that is recognized as Prosecco’s first "Cru". A wine of legendary status for over eighty years and still the benchmark for Prosecco today.
