Blend of 50% Kangun (native to Armenia), 40% Chardonnay and 10% Viognier. Straw, light yellow in color. Lemon peel, citrus and floral nose. Medium weight with lemon on the palate. Quite dry and it's hard to pick-up any of the characteristics of Chardonnay or Viognier. It's a very well made wine and drinks like wine 2-3 times it's price. Great effort.

Had this with omakase at Sushi Yuzu and it was a terrific pairing. BdB made with Voskehat and Khatouni, two indigenous grapes from Armenia. The label doesn't indicate the proportions.

Very clean nose of citrus and a bit of minerality. Light bodied on the mouth with a lovely citrus taste. Very refreshing but does not have the complexity of champagne as there doesn't appear to have a lot of aging on the lees. That said, at this price point this is a great bargain and a go to wine when you want a well made refreshing sparkler Bravo!

The wine was great from the outset. Full bodied with well integrated tannins and layers of flavor. This was amazing with rack of lamb.

First tasting of this vintage. Deep garnet, with floral, black berries, and spice scents. Full bodied, smooth and well balanced. A great effort in a poor vintage.

Deep purple, with scents of blackberries, spices with pepper dominating, and flowers. Sweet, smooth and full bodied. Elegant and long finish. Quite reserved upon opening but came around after an hour of decanting. Wonderful but not to the level of a great CDP.

A very pale salmon/apricot colored rosé. A fresh mineral tinged nose mixed with flowers and dark berries. Palate is clean, precise with brisk acidity. Lingering finish. Lovely.

Beautiful expression of BdB. Chalk, bread, and citrus. Very concentrated and tight on opening but developed in the glass. This should age quite well.

Deep ruby. Tertiary aromas of leather, earth, and tobacco. A lovely wine with fine tannins balancing nicely with medium acidity. This has many years of life.

Deep ruby. Lovely nose of red and black berries, spice, and tobacco. Flavors of berries, spice, and minerals with nice feel in the mouth. Although the alcohol comes in at 13.5% it does need food.

Very bold complex nose of berries, citrus. Firm and full bodied with ripe rich fruit and lovely acidity.

This drank better than the 2008 Dom which was much too young.

Like many I found this off-putting, I just did not want to pursue it any more than a few sips. As it sat it started to unfold enough to try it on day two and even three.
