Sommelier Corner – June 2018

This month we introduce a new feature to the Go Brazil website:  a review by a professional sommelier of one of our currently listed – and available to buy – wines.

Our very first guest sommelier is Victor Torres, a Brazilian national, who has worked extensively in Brazil and Spain. Victor moved from Park Chinois in London’s Mayfair to his current position as Head Sommelier at Aquavit, the renown Scandinavian restaurant located in the heart of St. James.

Read Victor’s tasting note on our sparkling Cave Geisse Brut Rosé Terroir 2009:

It has an intriguing blood orange colour and opens with pronounced brioche and liquorice aromas with underlying dry herbs and candied red fruit notes. The palate is full of earthy and spicy notes, with a fine mousse, soft acidity and lingering finish. It’s certainly a gastronomic wine, ideal for pairing with game dishes. Ideally drink now before fruit character fades.

Editor’s note:

  • This is a Traditional Method sparkler, 100% Pinot Nor, with 5% of the cuvee aged in oak barrels, made by Mario Geisse (formerly MD of Moët & Chandon’s Brazilian operations during the 1970s)
  • We are planning to make this a regular article, with a sommelier being invited to comment critically on a different wine each month
