Joseph Magnus & Co.

Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2018

Batch 40. A little thinner than earlier batches. Delightfully complex nose -- even has some cocoa notes. Strong initial burn that fades into a long finish.

Minor flaws: a sulfur note, maybe from the cognac barrel. Also the sharp heat is a bit more than expected for the 6y+ blend.

Brut Réserve Champagne Blend

Disgorged in 2014, aged 6y on the lees. Great depth and finesse, a brilliant wine. — 4 years ago

Domaine Amiot Guy et Fils

Les Demoiselles Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Words can’t describe my love affair with this wine. My 6y describes it as “lemony. The sun, a treasure, smells like gold”. It’s hard for me to argue with him. Silky ripe lemon with a heavy mineral chalk component on the front palate. I wish it lasted a little longer in the finish but still soft and expressive. Out of magnum second day. — 8 months ago

Arterberry Maresh

Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Elegant. Elemental. Better on day 2 with raspberry and cherry and forest floor on a taut frame with decent length for a base bottling and tannins to hold for 3-6y if not more. Barely new world. — 4 years ago
