We had a delicious March full of highly rated wines and topped off the month with the grand opening tasting at Vin Bin. We’re looking forward to reviewing the wines we purchased at the tasting over the next couple months. Also stay tuned for another Grapestorm NJ wine dinner write up from Aunt and UncleGrape’s house in April. We will be opening a bottle of our 1995 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape as well as any treats UncleGrape has in store for us.
We had a four way tie atop our ratings for best wine of the month. Nothing was head and shoulders above the competition but they were all good:
Grapestorm Highest Rated Wines of March 2013:
2010 Domaine Galevan Chateauneuf du Pape – 92
2011 Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay – 92
2007 Torii Mor Temperence Hill Pinot Noir – 92
2007 Guido Porro Barolo Vigna Lazzairasco – 92
If I were to pick a favorite of these four I would pick the Torii Mor as it was definitely the most unique expression of it’s respective grape.
2009 Tenuta Olim Bauda Barbera d’Asti ‘Nizza’ Superiore – 91
NV Chambers Rosewood Muscadelle – 88
