Domein Aldenborgh
Our rating: 7.5/10
With a nose of yellow and tropical fruits, combined with some vegetal tones the Pinot Gris of Aldenborgh doesn’t have an overwhelming nose, but the taste is full and rich in flavors! We taste a lot of ripened and tropical fruits and some minerality and citrus that give the wine with a nice freshness. In addition, we taste some buttery flavors and a bit of saltiness at the end. A nicely made wine with a lot to discover.

Domein Aldenborgh
Our rating: 7.5/10
This wine of the uncommon grape Satin Noir offers a remarkable, pronounced aroma-intensity and a very extensive aroma palate. We smell forest fruit, dried red fruits, cedarwood, hay and herbaceous characteristics. The taste is a bit greenish with flavors of blackcurrant, sour red cherries, liquorice, thyme, green bell pepper, and eucalyptus. The wine is a bit low in alcohol and has a low level of tannins, and it therefore lacks some structure in its taste palate that would make it a truly outstanding wine. We got the impression that the grapes might not be fully ripe or that the vines were still young. Nevertheless, a well-made and pleasant red wine to drink, for example combined with pecorino or frittata.

Our rating: 7.5/10
We smell a lot of fruit in the nose, combined with some more vegetal, green aromas. The wine has a nice and creamy mousse. We taste lemon, green apples and mandarin supplemented with a nice minerality and a small bitterness in the end. It is high in its acids, but the acids are nice and soft.

‘t Hanik
Our rating: 7.5/10
The wine offers a surprising smell, quite pronounced and diverse. We smell a lot, and a lot of different things: dried fruits, vanilla (the smell of Italian panettone), roses, and scents of malolactic fermentation. The smell isn’t stable but continuously provides different scents, and for that reason it is quite interesting. We taste flavors of red currants, raisins, rose petal, vanilla, and almonds. The wine reminds us of red Muscat dessert wine, except without the sweetness. A very good price/quality ratio!

Ludique
Our rating: 7.5/10
A nice, light wine with a very good price/quality ratio. After mainly vegetal aroma characteristics, we smell red fruits in the nose. The wine has flavors of ripe red fruit, complemented with some vegetal tones of bell pepper. We recommend to open it a few hours before drinking as it develops nicely in the glass and shows much more unity of flavors after breathing for a while.

Fromberg
Our rating: 8.5/10
Fromberger Ophrys is a very fruity sparkling wine. We smell and taste a lot of citrus, stone- and tropical fruit. Especially the smell and taste of fresh pineapple is remarkable. Besides the fruitiness, the wine has some soft tones of yeast and a small bitter in the end. The finish is pleasant. A very good wine, nicely balanced and with a lot of fruitiness.
