Crispy, green, refreshing — 5 months ago
Oops. This is one of those rare instances that I didn’t realize what I was opening and what I paid for it. This is not your average Monday night wine. As I was drinking it (semi blind) I was thinking this was darn good. One of the best CDP I’ve had in quite a while. Sexy and stunning without flaws. I wish I had more of this! — 7 months ago
My last bottle of six. We drank through them like water. Time to write detailed notes.
This Bourgogne is like stealing candy from a baby at $39.
The is rather honeyed vs most 2015’s I’ve had to date. Certainly more than my other five bottles. . Marmalade, stone fruits- apricots/yellow peach, overripe pineapple, green apple, touch of soured lemons, lime, hints of molasses, salted caramel, slivered almonds, saline, volcanic minerals, white spice, chalk, limestone withering; yellow lilies, yellow flowers with mixed greens.
The body is rich, thick, waxy with nice viscosity. Marmalade, big honey/beeswax, stone fruits- apricots/yellow peach, overripe pineapple, green apple, touch soured of lemons, lime, hints of molasses, salted caramel, vanilla, cream, slivered almonds, saline, volcanic minerals, white spice, chalk, limestone withering; yellow lilies, yellow flowers in mixed greens. The acidity is round & phat. The long, elegant, rich finish is; well balanced, well polished, perfectly knitted and very persistent.
Photos of; oops, in a rush, multi-tasking I pulled the wrong structure photo, Chardonnay grape ready for harvest, entrance sign and one of their vineyards. — 2 months ago
Crunchy white peach, citrus rind, wet stones. Oily finish. Did not go well with caramelized shallots. Oops. — 4 months ago
Really good long lasting fruit. Very acidic bite. Did not realize we’d be pairing with risotto tonight. Oops. — 4 months ago
I just grabbed it from the wine cellar not really knowing much about it. Gave myself a manicure and wanted to drink wine while doing it. I finished the entire bottle. It was freaking amazing!!! And apparently around $100. Oops. No regrets. Positively exquisite! Full bodied. Lots of terroir. (Dirt). Earthy. Love love love!! Too bad this vintage is sold out. — 6 months ago
