The wine is a deep ruby color with brick hues, bold and structural. The look itself announces a serious wine. The scent emphasizes the palette of aromas of ripe cherries, mulberries, blackberries, dark plums, black pepper, coffee and vanilla, which in the mouth are formed in the aroma of cinnamon, cloves, chocolate, marzipan and tobacco.The wine is dry in the mouth and works lively and fresh, with a rich long aftertaste that intertwines with ripe tannins of grapes and oak wood, which further emphasize the harmony of the wine. The alcohol level is high but at the same time nicely incorporated into the aromas and therefore expresses the high complexity of the wine.We recommend it with red meat, venison and prosciutto.
Deep ruby colour with no garnet tinges. It combines the colour shade of two years younger Duet, and depth of Duet Lex. It gives a very young impression for its age. Careless taster might well be surprised by its nose. Kolos used to be big, bold and very ripe, but from vintage 2015, “less is more” slogan would describe it more accurately. Itis still very intense on the nose, though, unsurprisingly, a bit less compared to Duet Lex. Opulence, aromatic diversity and complexity are the keys here. Though fullyripe, freshness is still very much present as well as open fruitiness. Dry, with ripe, grippy, noble tannins and firm structure, which will allow for a slow and dependable maturation.The taste on the palate is layered, complex and acts like a well-played orchestra. Its aroma intensity, which is not a result of over ripeness or too much of new oak, full bodywhich is perfectly in line with ripe and refreshing acidities, supple tannins - all these are providing elegance and drinkability. So much important atributes for a classic wine lover who to enjoy his wine with food and is immune to critics scores.From vintage 2015 on Kolos is much more elegant and subdued wine very much like refined, completed edition of already sophisticated Duet Lex. Kolos is now colossal by many parameters. Muscles, full body and over ripeness are not among them. Kolos is a wine produced to be lay-down in a cellar. The patience will be well-rewarded. Nevertheless, Kolos is (almost) ready when released.
The grapes are hand-harvested at a very good maturity. The grapes are 100% destemmed. Slow fermentation in small concrete vats. The process of fermentation is very long and lasts for more than one month, to polymerize tannins. Only the free-run wine is used in this single vineyard. Entirely aged in casks (new casks and casks having matured wine once or twice before) from 16 to 18 months.
The fullysaturated, brilliant ruby red color introduces a variegated aromatic palette, with notes and hints of blackberry and blueberry jam, black cherry and spices, coffee and balsamic oils.It is powerful and vigorous on the palate, confirming the promise of the nose, and dynamic thanks to its fresh and full character.
Jakot is a varietal white wine, from the past also known as “Tocai Friulano”. The must for this wine starts fermenting without cooling it with two-day maceration. Fermentation continues an ends in a big wooden barrel. Whine than matures in this barrel on its own lees for a year, without decanting. Just before the next grape harvest it is first decanted to inox barrel, where it clears and stabilises for another year so that we can bottle it without filtration after two years of maturing in a cellar.
The brilliant body is golden yellow in colour. The bubbles are fine, while the foam is discreet yet lingering. The nose, very open and expressive, delivers aromas of fruit and brioche. It also gives off the fragrance of peach, white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and vanilla pod.The entry onto the palate is lively, fresh and in total harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. Taittinger Brut Réserve, which acquires its maturity during three and four years ageing in the cellar, offers excellent aromatic potential.Taittinger Brut Réserve is the champagne for any occasion. A symbol of festivity, this wine is the ideal partner of celebration for the happiest milestones in a lifetime.
