First Bdx blend in a while - went over well. Red fruits on nose. Boysenberry, stewed plum. Young tannins. Had with A5 wagyu and assortment of banchan for Fathers Day. — 3 days ago
N: Bing Cherries, tar, mulberries, damson plum, gravel road.
P: Cherries, tar, bright acidity, gentle tannic grip, esp. in the cheeks. Mid-light weight in the mouth. I know with air/time, this broadens. As it airs, a mossy, leathery, quality comes forward esp. on the nose.

Great P. Meunier, good acidity that suggests we should wait a while to drink it again — 20 days ago
Not a huge fan - metallic, acidic, and alcoholic (15%) - like P&H without the pedigree — 16 days ago
Very good p/q. Reminds me of Giant Steps Applejack/Sexton. Clean red fruit, lavender, with a deeper spice note. There is Gibbston/Otago deep spice, then you get pure red strawberry. No discernible tannin, and acid is subdued, but at this pricepoint this is a buy. — 18 days ago
I love this wine. One of the most unique and distinctive Rieslings ever. Massively floral and mineral complexity on the nose. Just outrageous. Melon, citrus, spice, tangelo and so lifted. So pure. Nuanced. Superbly elegant and linear with delicious melon/citrus fruit and great inner mouth florals and an awesome fruit skin quality on the finish. So ethereal and pure. Lots of vim and vigor but also a lovely richness to the texture but never betraying its freshness and vivacity. Superb concentration and structure. Amazing depth here. Truly a brilliant wine. I’m sure this will open up and reveal more but really great on the P and P. Great, delicate and long finish. — 11 days ago
One of the top Pouilly-Fumes I’ve had. Ever. My view is that, while P-Fume and Sancerre have much in common, Sancerre has several plots with superior terroir that set it apart from P-Fume. That said, this really shines. Intense nose juxtaposes light grassy herbal notes, limestoney minerality, and ripe fruit. In other words, all the elements you want from a Loire SB in perfect balance. In the mouth, it’s got piercing fruit up front, and then gives way to intense minerality together with zingy acidity, but not just acidity by itself: acidity integrated with fruity notes that creates an almost electric sensation. Really top notch effort. — 25 days ago
