Walk around station portfolio tasting with Dan Kravitz and his Hand Picked Selections.
I liked everything I tasted, and that was 14 bottles. The one thing I would say is that every wine seemed to have a great mouthfeel - lovely suppleness regardless of what was in the wine. Usually minerally, rocky substrate, but never leaden or dead.
I will put Hand Picked Selections in my category of importers, who, if I am contemplating buying a bottle with no other particular knowledge, and I see it is from HPS I will consider that reason enough to go with it. I'd also comment that these wines seemed to be very friendly priced.
DK preferred we do the Champage after the still whites.
Me, I did it after the whites and came back to it after the reds too! Yum.
