chocolate, cheap wine and cannabis crystalz.
This is a wine geek’s wine. All the complexity and funk and mineral and challenge you could ask for from semillon and Chenin and really true to the terroir but man I really only want like a glass or two of this. Kinda tough stuff but definitely has some charm. Serious for sure. Needs lots of other wines at the table to stay in balance and pleasure. — a month ago
Probably drank like 6 of these already. Consistently a very impressive and insanely delicious pinot. This is one of those wines that’s so good just cannot stop drinking it. It’s complex and heady yes but in a very hedonistic way that is undeniable. — a month ago
Randomly purchased from a friend’s cellar. Ripping pretty hard for cahors. Had this great noble leather quality coming off it while being extremely accessible on the palette, juicy, dense but not hot at all. Excellent. Assume good value here but don’t actually know what this goes for on the market. — a month ago
En Magnum. Intense energy mineral core. This could use as much time as you want to give it, definitely this bottle was not ready even though it was still very enjoyable. Has a lightness and delicate quality that make it want to be graceful but it’s going to take some time for this to really show what it’s got. Drank over 3 days, not hard as nails but definitely tough compared to the potential here. — a month ago
4th bottle in the last 2 years. Light and natural take on this terroir. This last bottle finally showed its stuff giving off noble aromas and a nice long finish. Not my preferred take on champgain but still decent. — a month ago
Insane value. Lessons in the word ‘Clos’ ...this is absolutely one of them. Being very familiar with the producer’s style I would have to say this terroir outperforms the producer by a long shot. Highly recommended. — a month ago
