A well-deserved celebration!

On Wednesday evening Karl and I took a break from Vellum's harvest to attend the Wine & Spirits Top 100 celebration to honor Karl's contribution in creating a stunning 95 point wine from the 2005 vintage. The event took place at the The Golden Gate Club at the Presidio in San Francisco with over 400 winemakers and trade professionals in attendance.

The highlight of the evening was the opportunity to sample many of the Top 100 wines with our personal #1 pick going to Morey-Blanc's Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru ($175). This Burgundian chardonnay is quite possibly the best white wine we have ever tasted! We were lucky enough to sample the 2004 vintage which received a score of 92 points from Wine & Spirits. The best way to describe this wine is - minerality and stoniness. With additional scents of chamomile and jasmine, the chalky limestone mouth feel brings this chardonnay to the top of our list! Well done!

And congratulations Karl!!
