Don't forget about wine to go with the cheese, or dessert!
Crivella is made with fruit from Riccardo Bianco’s oldest vines, including some planted in the mid 1800s by Riccardo’s great-great-something grandfather; such old vines are extremely rare, and while they produce very little fruit, it’s impossible for Riccardo to even think about replacing them. At a tasting in the shop a customer said, “Like Sauternes with bubbles!” which was a lovely way to describe the wine and its rich and unctuous character. made lively with fizz, and crisp with balancing acidity. A great match with cheese or not-so-sweet desserts, like panetone, or fruit pies. While there’s no botrytis, Crivella is much more complex and detailed than all but the very best Sauternes. I’ve certainly never tasted anything like it — a stunning wine. Jamie Wolff
"The 2009 Guiraud is one of the gems of Sauternes in this vintage, one of the finest offerings in recent years.It has a wonderful, beautifully delineated bouquet with expressive scents of wild honey, orange pith, Seville orange marmalade and just a hint of pineapple. The palate is beautifully defined with pure botrytised fruit, supremely well balanced with a vivacious ginger and white pepper tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners tasting of Bordeaux 2009s." Neal Martin in Vinous, 2019.
The 2013 has hit the sweet spot of perfect balance between its vibrant acidity and delicate sweetness with layer upon layer of complexity; initial notes of citrus and white flowers evolve in the glass into stony minerality and luscious apricot with a satiny texture and long finish. Ethereal yet concentrated and absolutely elegant. Giselle Hamburg
This split packs quite a punch, beginning with aromas of petrol, salt brine, lilacs, and nutmeg. The palate is rich and textured with candied lemons and lemon custard with an admirably long finish. An elegant coda to any meal! - David Salinas
