Wine biz in NYC in 80s. Sucked at sales. Since 1990, a lawyer. Pretty good at that, thankfully. Since 2000, sick of wines 15% and higher.
Sappy and snappy. Great nose of sour cherry ooze, cracked rock dust, graham cracker, and mossy undergrowth. Tremendous minerality in the mouth is accented by very good acidity. Very pure barely ripe cherry fruit is the first whack, but then quickly turns minerally as the fairly long finish evolves. Tremendous with a simply roasted chicken. — a day ago
Pungent nose has a bit of barnyard and bigly tangy berry fruit. Some high-toned crumbly rock too. Lively and vigorous in the mouth, with the tangy element and crisp acids dominant. Nice with a garlicky grilled chicken warm pasta salad. — 9 days ago
Gravelly and leathery on the nose, with some dark berry essence. Rich, dry, and earthy on the palate. Some deep dark cherry extract in the background. Would be good with rich, red meat braise (not what I had it with). Scratchy tannins. Rustic. — 15 days ago
Smoky ash-pit minerality leads on the nose with richly extracted berry ooze. Nice baking spice notes. Rich but balanced in the mouth. Great purity of fruit and balance of savory elements. Pretty good acids too. Long long finish. Tannins there but submerged. Really fine. — 2 days ago
The minerality and acidity leaps out of the glass. I love the 14 white burgs. Deep lemon-oil drenched wet Burgundian rocky gravel. Intense and minerally in the mouth. Chiseled, not an ounce of flab. Long clingy finish. Really fine. — 11 days ago
A really unique Chablis. It emphasizes juicy fruit over brothy, limestoney minerals. But it also has the nice acidity one hopes for in Chablis. There is a nice, slightly smoky, flinty note in the nose. Finishes a tad diluted, however. — 3 days ago
Lithe and flavorful. Nose has smoky granite, dried violets, dark berries. So nice. Broad and intense in the mouth, but in a lighter weight style. Turns clingy and savory in the long finish. Great balance. Love this. In a great spot right now. — 5 days ago
