Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Yellow Label

As we’ve been drinking more Champagne, I’ve been wanting to buy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to see how it stacks up. I’ve had a few bottles over the years and have always enjoyed them. This Champagne is widely available and almost always in stock, at least in the stores around the Atlanta area. We …

2018 Gerard Bertrand An 825 Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

I almost passed this bottle up thinking it was the Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Cuvee that we reviewed last year, and really enjoyed. The similarities are uncanny: the price, the label, the varietal blend, the origin (both Limoux Brut Rosé); the ABV, but different vintages, 2017 vs 2018. But then I noticed this one was …

2019 Monte Degli Angeli Piemonte Pinot Noir

Here’s a fun Costco wine find that we were super curious about.  You don’t see a ton of Italian Pinot Noir out there; plus this wine originated from Italy’s famed Piedmont region, where you also find a number of high caliber reds. The price was great at $7.49 and the Costco placard proudly displayed the …

2019 Kirkland Signature Carneros Pinot Noir

There are quite a few solid choices for Pinot Noir at Costco right now, and this new Kirkland Carneros bottle is among the better buys in our opinion. It’s hard to find Pinot from Carneros this affordably priced, and also this good. That’s what we hope (and have come to expect) Kirkland wines to deliver …

2018 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Riserva

There are quite a few new vintages of popular Kirkland wines hitting stores right now.  This Chianti is always an interesting find for us that we are anxious to taste but never super excited about. Right off the bat though there’s some good news, a price drop.  For as long as I can remember this …

2018 Willamette Valley Vineyards Dijon Clone Chardonnay

There’s an interesting story behind this wine as evidenced by the clue in its name “Dijon Clone.” Willamette Valley Vineyards founder Jim Bernau travelled to Burgundy France in the 80’s and brought back these vines for use in Oregon vineyards where he expected they might also thrive.  And based on my tasting on this bottle, …

2019 Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio

Here’s a white wine that grabbed my attention.  I don’t drink a lot of Pinot Grigio, but this bottle was $11.99 at Costco and proudly displayed its 91 points from Wine Enthusiast. Turns out they also named the wine an “Editor’s Choice.” Retail price on this bottle is around $20, and my Total Wine carries …
