By now, most people may be aware that Rose & Arrow Estate began in 2012 as a collaborative effort between the late Mark Tarlov (a film producer who also started Evening Lands) and Louis-Michel Comte Liger-Belair of the eponymous domaine in Vosne-Romanée, looking to produce the best expression of Oregon pinot noir through a fastidious in-depth study of volcanic ..read more

It was back to Bordeaux and Bordeaux-blends for the usual suspects at Imperial Treasure Great World on 08 April 2024. While the wines were not as old as some of the best examples of mature claret that we’ve had in the past, the line-up that evening was drinking superbly across the different vintages. Nevertheless, evident ..read more

2008 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, courtesy of Jim at Otto Ristorante, 05 Mar 2024. Pale. Distant complex of green fruits and almonds with lifted floral scents, leading to rounded tones of fig and dense citrus laced with refreshing crisp acidity, its vigour tempered by slightly darkish undertones. Excellent. 2015 Lamy-Pillot Le Montrachet ..read more

The usual suspects and friends met on a theme of Old and New World pinot noir and chardonnay at Summer Pavillion on 25 February 2024. All wines were blinded. While the yardstick still remains with the burgundies, the New World pinots (which happened to be all American in our case) measured up very well, their ..read more
