November 28th stock - The wines...
2001 Penfold's Grange (RP98) HK$36,720/cs "Australia's most famous wine... 100% Shiraz...It is a big, but impeccably well-balanced Shiraz that should shed some of its structure and tannin over the next 4-5 years, and be at its best between 2010-2030+." RP 2006
1990 Chateau d'Yquem (RP99) HK$25,650/cs of halves
"1990: An extraordinary effort...The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+." RP 1999
2001 Rene Engel Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Burghound 92) HK$22,230/cs "Remarkably fine, elegant and pure black fruit aromas that now display a touch of secondary development contrast with big nicely focused and intense, earthy and round flavors that offer excellent length. This has come around quite nicely and has, for my taste, now arrived at its peak and is certainly approachable now with 30 minutes of air. A really lovely and utterly delicious effort - in sum, a Clos de Vougeot of finesse and elegance."BH 2012 drink now++ The wines by the case

Post subject : Champagne is a world renowned French sparkling wine.
Champagne is a French sparkling wine and is a protected name of the sparkling wine which can only come from the Champagne region of France. Even then, it is not enough to be a wine producer from the Champagne region of france to use the name "Champange" on a bottle, but also exacting standards must be followed in order to ensure and maintain the quality of champagne.
Unfortunately sometimes confusion can arise as some American wineries do use this term and when they do it is no indication of quality as they are not held to the same exacting standards.
Though sometimes reserved for celebrations; it can be enjoyed far more often, adding delight and enchantment to savour on any occasion.
How is it made?
Champagne must be made using Méthode Champenoise, where fermentation occurs in two stages, first via normal methods, followed by a second fermentation in the bottle it will be sold in.
(This rule is relaxed for very large unwieldy bottles as they are extremely expensive and prone to damage, also very small bottles; for example for airline use, when generally a magnum will be used instead and the wine transferred after fermentation is complete, though some champagne producers do perform second fermentation in the very large bottles.)
What are the rules for Non-Vintage Champagne?
A non-vintage Champagne must not be sold until at least 15 months after January 1st following the year of harvest. However, most non-vintage Champagne is aged for 18 to 30 months or longer.
What are the rules for Vintage Champagne?
Vintage champagne must not be sold until at least 3 years following the year of harvest. Most vintage Champagne is much older before it is sold. It must be made from 100% of grapes from that year. (This can be as low as 85% for other wines in the EU, and even lower in other countries) No more than 85% of the grapes from one year may be sold as vintage, ensuring there is enough wine for the non-vintage.
Are there more rules?
Yes, there are many more rules covering vine pruning, the yield of the vineyard, the degree of pressing applied to the grapes, and the time that bottles must remain on the lees. These are in place to ensure high quality of champagne across all producers.
