Wow, easily the best Bourgogne Blanc I’ve ever had. Blind I would think it would be a Chassagne 1st Cru. Apple strudel, brown butter, slight orange zest, buckwheat honey, clay, crunchy minerals with a long finish — 7 days ago
Delicious Gose. Bright orange (blood orange?) acid, pink grapefruit, salt, coriander. Complex. — 3 months ago
Classically Argentinian Malbec, rich dark plum slightly boarding on prune, mocha/dark chocolate, cinnamon, cardamom. Little hot on the palate. 13.8% abv on bottle. Maybe, maybe not. — 25 days ago
Starts out a little tight/astringent and lots of pyrizine.
Opens up in 20mins. Tannin becomes silky with French oak, ripe blackberry, black plum/cherries and tobacco. Solid finish mod acid — a month ago
Drinking well. '13 of this isn't for long term cellaring but will develop well over the next couple of years. Black cherry, strawberry, cigar box, forest floor, white button mushroom, pink grapefruit acidity. Good length. — 7 months ago
