Tasting Notes from the Curator

Each bottle within the Cellar Classics: Exceptional Wines Collection divulges a story that begins with the whispers of the vineyard, winding through the meticulous craft of winemaking, to culminate in the glass. The sensory experience unfurls with primary aromas, embroidering the air with fruit-forward whispers, floral undertones, and herbal notes - each scent capturing the idyllically ephemeral nature of their origin, from red fruit (cherry, raspberry, strawberry) in reds to citrus/tree fruit (lemon, apple, pear) in whites and floral (rose, violet, jasmine) in even measures.

Secondary aromas arise from winemaking traditions, bearing the hallmarks of fermentation and oak aging - yeasty, creamy, buttery notes, and aromatic compounds like spice and vanilla that speak volumes of the wine’s nurturing within the barrel’s embrace. Tertiary aromas complete the narrative; they speak of a wine’s patience and grace, invoking earthy tones of forest floor and mushroom, lending an air of gravitas with whispers of leather and cedar, each nuance a line in the poetry of aging. These wines, bearing a signature of their birthplace - be it the Left Bank’s gravelly soils or Piedmont’s robust Barolo - exhibit a palatial complexity. The palate resonates with a harmony of flavors, from ripe berries and stone fruits to the nuanced complexity of non-fruit and oak-related characters.

Further, the tactile ballet of wine texture, from the svelte dance of tannins in reds to the zesty liveliness of acidity in whites, attests to each wine’s profound uniqueness. Whether it is a Rioja’s bold structure or a Barossa Valley Shiraz’s concentrated warmth, this collection celebrates an intricate tapestry of taste profiles, affording a distinctive tasting revelation.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Entrée Accompaniments: Pair the robust tannins of a classic Bordeaux with the richness of grilled red meats or the subtle complexity of mushroom risotto.
  • Refined Companions: The crisp acidity of a Loire Valley Sancerre complements the freshness of goat cheese salads, while a vivacious Prosecco plays delightfully against briny oysters.
  • Cheese Counterparts: Let the Parisian streets whisper to your senses by savoring a creamy Brie with a Burgundian Pinot Noir, or a nutty-aged Gouda with a venerable Rioja.
  • Culinary Contrasts: Engage in a game of flavors with a sweet, late-harvest Tokaji and a panel of salty blue cheese or spicy Asian cuisine, illuminating the balance between opposites.
  • The Luxe Bite: For sheer indulgence, match the toasted notes of an oaked Chardonnay with the sinuous luxury of butter-poached lobster or seared foie gras.

    Vinicultural Vignettes

In the grand theater of wine collecting, the Cellar Classics: Exceptional Wines Collection is akin to a well-preserved anthology of literary masterpieces. Within each bottle lies not merely a beverage but a vignette of viniculture, a slice of the region’s soul, a whisper from the past. Take, for example, the storied vintages since 1914 within Dr. A. Botenga’s personal trove, reflecting the collector’s fervent quest for oenological enlightenment.

Conversations may drift to the charming narratives around TCM Wine Club’s cinematic stamp on viticulture, where each bottle finds its persona in the golden age of film, marrying the cultural gravitas of cinema with the temporal elegance of wine. This collection prides itself on more than prestige; it’s a conduit of tales waiting to be told, poured, and savored alongside the choreography of dining discourse.

Storage Instructions

Protect these bottled treasures from the ravages of time by observing scrupulous vigilance in temperature (45-65°F, ideally at the median), humidity (an ambient level of 50-70% is preferred to prevent cork desiccation and ensuing melancholy), and absence of light and vibration (lest the precious sediment be disturbed, or the wine’s essence aggravated). Let each bottle lie in a horizontal repose, cradled as one would an aged tome on a library shelf, preserving the mystique and ensuring the wine’s voice remains clear and unweakened for the grand uncorking.
